two neighbors, one has two dogs in a cage, the other has two dogs that run free.

any action can be taken to stop them from barking?

Isn't the noise the same as loud music, etc. and subject to police scrutiny?

I don't see how the people living there can stand to hear their dogs bark all the time....

and an hour without stopping is like all the time, you wonder if it will ever end.

Dogs like to bark at each other among other things.

However on an anti barking forum, everyone agreed the anti barking laws are rarely enforced (how?) and if the owners of the dogs get a 1% sniffing that their dogs bother you, it will get twice as bad, and you may be forced to move, as your only way to escape.

I have never lived next door, or near any barking dogs, as they were not allowed outside. And inside dogs won't bark because the owner won't want to hear it for hours on end when the dog is 5-15 feet away.

I'm moving to a new house and the dogs are caged closer to my bedroom that their owner's bedroom.

I'll have to search the Rock Hil codes on noise but if it is the same way as "noise like music that can be heard from 30 feet away only between the hours of 11pm and 7am" then it seems dim getting help from the police.

I've been forced to call them 8-10 times after listening to loud music from 9pm to 2am, night after night. I call the police and when they finally get there, if they come at all, many times it takes them over 30 minutes, the music has stopped and they think I'm crying wolf. And they won't come back.

The offenders see the headlights of the police car coming and turn the music off and there is no noise when the police arrive.
I found that the police do not like to respond to such complaints.
They take forever to arrive. Sometimes they do not come at all, and if you call back you will may be lied to, and told YES they came out.
NO they did not, I was sitting on my porch for over 30 minutes at 1 am.

They warn them the first time, and at some point can fine them $25.

If all these 4 dogs were inside dogs there would be no problem.
2 are couped up in a cage right at the corner of 3 lots and it is 20 feet from my bedroom. I would not personally own a dog if they had to spend their whole life in a cage.

The owner's work, so they are not exposed to the barking during the day.

I'm finding alot of info that says the police are your least likely help and your best solution is to move., This should not be the way it is.

I'm buying this house from a bank and would have to pay them $5000 if I sold the place within 12 months, so I'm stuck if these dogs are a problem.
I've been to the house many times with the real estate agent and the dogs are always barking. Their owner's are used to it and don't care.
It's their loveable adorable pet.

Hs anyone used the above device?
It
says
good up to 100 feet, and these dogs I have are only
25-30 feet away = sounds good.
But, it says it does not work on all dogs = not so good.
Then it says it might take 2-3 weeks to work = not so good with the warranty only 30 days.
It's worth the expense in my case.

Wondered if anyone had tried it?

You need to look for another house if you haven't already closed on the deal. If you complain to the owner's, they aren't going to be happy with you. You're the new kid. Their life was fine until you showed up.

As for the cops showing up because of loud music late at night, ummmm don't you think they have better things to be doing at 1 am? Like watching for drunk drivers, drug deals, prostitution, robberies, etc? You may not like the noise, but they also have rights. Maybe get an iPod and sleep with the earbuds in.

You certainly do have a lot of noise issues with this house. I really would look for somewhere else to live. Chances are that the noise isn't going to stop because you arrive. In fact, things might get worse if you complain.

Dog Silencer
It is much cheaper - only 10 bucks plus s&h, and it did work for me. Same problem - non-stop barking at neighbors'

I'm having the same issues in SC, my neighbors didn't have any animals but he is now accumulated five hunting dogs that are non stop barking and howling. We can't even go into the yard without them all going at it. On top of that the feces is pileing up and the smell and flies are becoming unbearable. I just don't know what to do anymore except sell my house and lose money since anyone who would come to see it would run the other way. My property value is going down rapidly and I can't even open my door without flies coming in.

Are the dogs being left out 24 hours a day? Do they have adequate conditions in the backyard?

Call Animal Control and ask if dogs can be left outside 24/7 and if not, you would like to anonymously report a neighbor who is doing just that.
