for about 2 years now my wife and I have had to put up with a yelping dog that live's next door in a 6x6 cage 24/7.Now the dog is untrained,is about a 65 lb black Lab that the wife of the dog owner is affraid of.Now we've called animal control and have been told there is nothing wrong with this treatment.The real problem si the 3-6 hours of yelping.I have talked to the owner,I have shouted at the dog I have knocked on the door at midnight to beg him to do something and nothing..My wife goes to sleep early most nights and it make's her really mean not to get 8 hours.So I'm asking you smart people for help....me I would just let the dog run loose as it is untrained but I would end up in the doghouse with my wife........



                                                                                                                        HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe there is some kind of "noise bylaw" that is being violated?  Could the problem be approached from that angle?

Unfortunately, the things necessary to quiet  the dog would not be fair to the dog ..... whose fault it is not.  Find out when your neighbors sleep and blast noise towards them at that time.  Turnabout.

This reminds me of a "story" I heard (okay - a blonde joke...)

So this guy and his blonde wife go to bed... and like so many nights, the neighbor's dog is out in the back yard barking away - yap, yap, yap!

No matter what they do, the neighbor's just stick the dog out there at night and let him bark.

After tossing and turning once again, the husband says, "That's it; I'm going over there!"

His blonde wife says, "You stay here, let me handle this."

She puts her robe on and leaves. Meanwhile, her husband lays in bed and listens while the dog keeps yapping away.

After a few minutes, she comes back in and crawls into bed, but the dog is still barking like crazy.

"What did you do?" he says.

She replies, "I put the dog in OUR yard - let's see how THEY like it!"

Well talked to the police about the noise and they said there is nothing I can do.Just talked to the owner and he has once again told me he's working on it with some sort of electronic device I told him 72 hours after that I'm going to start calling the landlord ever time the dog goes off,so that means he may get a call at 1am with me being very rude to him and I can be very,very,very rude.I suggested that he give the dog to someone who will care and train him,all I got was a disapproving look.

Rob, that sounds miserable.  I couldn't take it.  Have you tried a noise machine in your bedroom at night?  Something akin to the sound a fan makes?

I can't stand trying to sleep in a dog pound. Though I love dogs and animals this would be a big test for me.

It's the right thing to do. And probably your only legal solution...

Animal control has been out and they say the owner is not breaking any laws.But if my cats get out they go to jail and it cost about $100 to get them out.

Are you the only neighbor who is influenced by the noise?  If not, maybe a petition can help push them into a corner?

The landlord say's since no law's have been broken there is nothing he can do,so it our problem.The cop's say they need to hear it when they come out,but more then likely they won't respond as its not a crime.So I have decided that when my wife and son go out of town I will run music thru my PA that is in the cave at big volumn,now I just have to find the right music.I'm classical.....

He had the dog fixed and at night its put in a smaller night cage{think travel cage}by his back door.So he doesn't start up until he's put back in the big cage at 7am....fun begins at 7:03.....

Dear Rob,

Stick to the high road. It sounds like you have exhausted all your options within the bounds of civil conduct.  You need to stay within those bounds even when it seems fundamentally unfair.

Playing loud music will accomplish nothing unless you want to foster a relationship with the authorities.

I'd investigate ways to sound-proof your sleeping quarters.

Sincerely,

ST

Well I sorta stepped in it and left a message pleading with him to do something with the dog.Then he called me back 2 days later saying I threaten him,since I record everything my lawyer said there was nothing threatening about my message so I decided to just let him know that I didn't like him and I was done.Thats when the small cage came inti play and the fixing.As for sound proofing our bedroom window face's our back yard anf the bigger dog cage is about 20 feet behind us andwe like saving electrizity so we sleep with the window open.My next step may be a tone generater set to F# this will make everyone nuts but me because F# counter's the tinnitis I have.Plus I bought really good earplugs for my wife.
