Hi to cut a long story short we have lived in this house for about a year now and the neighbours behind us have a alsation dog that it left outside every day from 7am till 9pm,barking constantly,months ago i contacted the rspca about the situation and they said they have had complaints before,i then thought great maybe somthing will be doneabout it as emost people on the estate are getting fed up with it but are just to scared to do anything about it as there scared to upset this guy as hes not the friendly type(been in prison a few times!)after rspca went round to his i sent a email to ask for a update,the update was no help to me or anyone else,all they said is the dog dosnt know any better so its all ok,theres me thinking the dog is left out in the snow,rain etc with no shelter and there saying its ok!!i then thought to myself why should i have to put up with this,(my 2 year old daughter wont even go out in the garden because of this dog!!i then contacted the council who sent me a diary sheet which lasted a couple of weeks,after this the sent me some sound recording device,i done this for 2 weeks and then the council collected it,after that i got a email telling me the noise was above the levels etc and they will be contacting the owner to issue a "noise notice",a week after i get a email telling me they have been to the owners house and provided them with a collar for the dog and told me if it works it should take affect in just a few days,well a few days have passed and still barking all day!ive always had dogs when living parents many years ago and i think the dog is being unfairy treated as well as the people living on the estate.just glad the council are trying to help and so they should as they have had so many complaints regarding this dog.anyone else been in this type of situation?

Guy should be shot for having a dog and not giving the time to look after it.

(sorry, not very constructive but it makes my blood boil to hear of animals getting unfairly treated due to scummy owners)

I have a mate who's neighbour went out and started hitting his dog with a shuvel after it had puppies. The RSPCA went round first to query the guy (didn't go in) I believe, then came back some time later at which time the guy had cleared up the back garden of the ropes etc he had used to tie the dogs up. Nothing was done.

Good luck & hope you find a resolution soon.

I would keep on to the rspca it is not only annoying for you and the neighbours but it is cruelity to this poor dog who is always out!
YES I HAVE HAD THE SAME TYPE OF PROBLEM, i wrote a letter to my neighbour complaining about the barking of her dog and how cruel she was for locking her out all the time. The letter was anonomous, and since i wrote the situation has improved a little!
Good luck to you and the poor dog!!

If you have no luck with council your only action is to take a civil action against the owner youcan get forms at court for less than £100 im sure and then they can order him to keep dog quiet or the court will deal with him. I appreciate this is a bit drastic but I work in this field and this is the last resort. Hopefully the council will sort it out. The RSPCA cant do much im afraid.

i know its realy frustraiting,its barking as i type now and will do till about 8ish,it drives me mad as i work full time and as im coming towards my estate the first thing i hear is the bloody dog barking,not what i need after a 10hr shift at work,and its upsetting that my little girl is to scared to go out into our very own garden!
#5
You have done all the right things so far. My advice to you is to keep on complaining and do not give up until you get this sorted. You could try your local counciller or mp, they can go to the top for you. Good luck and keep us posted. :)

its hard to fathom how the owner doesnt get fed up with it. Then again, he's probably down the pub all day spending his disability benefits :whistling:
#7
yes cos he doesnt work at all,and not the type of person you can reason with.

Mate if its within range the device in the following link works, its emits a noise dogs hate when it detects a bark sound, the dog learns quickly that the bark triggers the noise and it stops barking. I know you shouldnt have to pay out for someone elses noise but could be a easy quick way to get some peace, point it over the fence maybe hide it in a tree .

think i will consider that if i get no more joy with the council
#10
Hope you get it all sorted out one way or another for yours and the dogs sake.

Good luck, hope you find a resolution and keep us posted.
#11
thanks,somthing needs to be done thats for sure!
#12
lol funny topic this, as i have the exact same problem!!

i havent contacted anybody yet, but ive had enough of the barking!!

how do you go about contacting RSPCA and councils etc? i wont stop till this dog is out of the neighbourhood!!
#13
i just sent a letter to the rspca and a email to the council after i had no joy with the rspca.started this 6 months ago mind :(
#14
I was just about to suggest you secretly train the dog not to bark. Just make sure you do it while the bloke isn't there otherwise he may get angry. The good thing about the ultrasonic device someone suggested is that the guy shouldn't be able to hear it.

And the person who said about disability benefits, it's incapacity benefit that only requires a Doctors note (so has some spongers). Disability has a full home examination by a doctor before any money is given so has few false claims (compared to the other). :thinking:

But wouldnt that be a similar device to what the OP states the RSPCA fitted. Surely they just didnt come around and fit a normal collar :-D

Unless the owner removed the collar.

I would keep annoying the council, telling them that it's starting to affect your health - then see you doctor & tell him your nerves are shot to pieces. Tell your MP that the council won't act & things are so bad you've had to see the doctor. Then sit back & wait for the problem to get fixed.
#17
thats what i was thinking,i bet the dog hasnt even got the collar on
#18
Contact your local council office & complain, they will issue a letter to them but it will not state who has complained.
Maybe a letter will do the trick, some people just need a nudge sometimes to wake them up & consider people around them!

You think hes gonna bother putting it on the dog, then replacing the batteries when they go????
#20
already contacted the council thats how i got the sound recording equipment
#21
where do you live cos there's an Alsation dog by me that barks all day & night (maybe the breed) and I was wondering whether to contact the council and do a petition round the streets in my area cos its not just me that it drives mad but all my neighbours too !

yeah, i have two of em, if i leave them out the back for 2 min they bark at anything and everything(only leave em out when non dog lovers visit and then never more than ten min or i put em upstairs) , they are very territorial and a natural guard dog, its the owner at fault.

Not the same dog then but as kungfu says his are the same so it must be the breed, I've got a staffie and if I leave her outside and she doesn't want to be there she yowks, not barks but a horrid whining noise !!

I can sympathise with you though cos that dog by me drives me round the bend and the owner is too unapprochable, i am at my wits end so I think a trip to the council might be in order :x:roll::)

my neighbour has 2 great danes that are left everyday from 8.30 -6 pm and then sometimes from 7.15-11.10 pm and they constantly bark, how long shd a dog be left on their own ? i have told her my feelings only for her to reply that i had no right to interfere in someone eleses life and im a busybody? a feeble excuse and i need to know the rules about leaving dogs everyday , all day..

There are no rules regarding the hours they are left per day.

My daughter is now terrified of any dogs due to a mutt collie down my back gardens that barks and tries to get to you through the fence when i take stuff out to my wheelie bin. This thing would rip your arm off if it got to you.

Ive been thinking about dropping a piece of meat with rat poison on it but dont know if i'd get caught if the vet done a post mortem. I hate the mutt, cant wait til it snuffs it.

I agree with thesaint but the dog must have shelter at all times when left outside (for hours that is).
Dog must be quiet btween 11pm and 7am.

Sorry but that's disgusting. It's the owners fault, not the dogs.

yeah, that's rather sick and hopefully you're just trolling, someone did that to one of kittens when i was younger, if someone did that to one of my pets now and i found out who it was, i would probably set fire to their house with them inside

contact the rspca and they will probably pay the owner a visit
