Next door neighbour had a go at my house mate this morning regarding our dogs barking in the night
There beds and food etc is in the garage.
They did bark a bit last night.
What can we do? I dont think asking the dogs to not bark is an option

If this happens regularly you could sell them or move,You need to look at this from your neighbours prospective, I am a dog owner and my dog was trained from a very early age not to bark unless there is an intruder ,

i don't know how well they work but you can get these collars that emit a noise when the bog barks that is mildly unpleasant to it to dissuade it from barking? Humans can't hear the noise but dogs can.

have 2 dogs myself and I sympathise with you but technically your neighbour is in the right-if they complain to the council you will be the loser.

hard to know the solution tho.

my dog barks at fresh air. thats what dogs do. as long as its not all the time i wouldnt worry. ive heard you can get collars that emit a noise that only dogs can hear, its supposed to stop them barking. not sure if they work or not.

I think you can get ones that spray lemon at them too, they're supposed to be good.


If it was a one off I'd ignore it. Maybe pop round and speak to the neighbours, ask them if the dogs bark a lot? If they do, say your apologies and try to sort it out, dogs barking is annoying. My neighbours dogs bark all blinkin day, drives me mad.

hmmmmm tricky then
I mean in the year that I have lived there I have had to go round at 4 am to ask them to please turn off there **** music as I have to be up for work in 2 hours.
But really i should be going round every other weekend when she comes home ****** with a different fella.
Just dont want this to become a match lol

i have two cats in house with two german shepards they get on fine

If it's only a one off - no worries - if it's persistant, your neighbours have a right to complain and if necessary take their own legal action in a civil case.

As others have suggested, try the anti-barking collars.
#13
How much would a half decent anti bark collar set you back? Have seen plenty around, varying from as little as £15 to well over £100 :w00t:

well maybe you should discuss it with whoever they belong to, no wonder they barking if they living in a garage
#18
I suggest you do the best thing for your dogs and try and find a way to bring them inside or rehome them.

By the sound of it, the dogs are never in the house as you've got 3 cats in there. Doesn't sound like much of a life to me. It must be freezing in there at this time of year, especially at night, fur or not! :x
#19
I think you have to ask the question as to why they are barking. Do they have enough water? Do they need food, or the toilet? Maybe they are Cold?
#20
Have you thought about contacting a professional dog trainer to see if they have any advice?
There must be somebody running training classes running somewhere in your area who would be able to help.

Oh god you dont live on my street do you.

Dog keeps waking me up at 5:30AM every morning when they put him in the garden, and from the neighbours point of view - it is VERY VERY annoying when the dogs keeping you awake and you gotta go to work.

Dont know what to try, ive two kittens who cry whenever im not in the room with them, but you cant be with them 24/7!

I know how annoyed im getting with lack of sleep as the dogs barking every day, so best thing to do is go round and apologize and assure ya neighbour that you are looking into doing something. At least they will know your not just ignoring the situation, which is probably annying her alot more.

okay...i'm a dog owner and to be honest if my dog had to go in the garage I wouldnt have one.

Far too cold, even a kennel would be cold, but some dogs manage but only if they are acclimatized to that from the start

if they have been in a house and then in a garage, they will not find this happy and they will attract as much attention as possible

If they arent your dogs, I suggest you speak with the owners - but to be honest I wouldnt have took them in in the first place if they cannot live in doors with the cats

but that doesnt answer your questions

perhaps try to heat the garage, given them plenty of blankets, water (not frozen over) and ensure all drafts are eliminated - try walking them more, give them plenty of exercise and they will then sleep

alt try a local rescue centre who may be able to offer a foster home for them if the owners are away on holiday

some neighbours will complainf or the sake of complaining, we used to have a dog nearby that barked every morning at 5.30 because his owner got up at that time....I got used to it.. there is always noise of some type and people should be more tolerant

however if it barked constantly It would drive me mad also, as my dog is told to shutup and has been taught not to make a racket, becuase I'm not a fan of a whittering dog

perhaps speak with the neighbour and explain that you are looking after them in the short term???

My dogs (2 large dogs) and 5 cats all get along fine and are in the house together. Could be worth a try.

can see it from the neighbours point of view,lived by a lady once who had a collie,she used to chuck it out in the garden and go off to work,poor thing barked and barked and barked all day long til she came home,even then it would still be barking outside of an evening,a constant noise like that does drive you bonkers after a while
thankfully for me she did eventually get rid of the dog

Shes now re homing them..problem solved
Now all i have to do is make sure i complain everytime she plays her music
