Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Everything you need to keep your pooch (or the neighbor's) on a legal leash!by Mary Randolph, J.D.
Explain that the barking is having a negative effect on your sleep, concentration, and so on, and that you would like to work out a good solution. Dogs kept outside commonly bark from boredom; this is especially true for energetic breeds like German Shepherds, terriers (including Pit Bulls), and guard dogs like Dobermans and Rottweilers.
See if your neighbor will agree to take the dog inside during certain hours, such as between 10 pm and 7 am. If barking during the day is a problem because the dog is left outside, see if the neighbor will agree to install a dog house where the dog can take shelter during the day. If the dog has a behavioral problem and the neighbor agrees it needs to be addressed, see if he or she will set a certain date by which the dog will start attending obedience classes. If you don't want to gang up on your neighbor, ask the other neighbors to contact the dog owner individually.
Best case scenario, the neighbors will be able to put their heads together to come up with a good solution that doesn't leave anyone feeling ostracized. Often neighborhood or civil dispute centers produce small briefs on dog issues, as they're rather commonplace complaints.


You may want to share your findings with your neighbor to give him or her one last chance to change before you call the authorities.
Some jurisdictions will act on anonymous complaints, while others require your name and address but won't reveal this to the neighbor complained about. Many people jump straight to drastic measures instead of simply talking to the neighbor about their concerns. It's possible your neighbor is well aware of the issue, but isn't sure how to get the dog to stop barking. Many people have the misconception that dogs' fur keeps them warm in subzero weather; it's not the case, unless the dog is a husky. Rather than expecting your neighbor to put a stop to all barking, it might be more feasible to agree on a practical solution that works for both of you.
If your neighbor ignores your requests or doesn't make a change after you've asked politely, it can help to get neighbors involved.
If you believe the barking is a result of neglect or another form of abuse, you have the right to call animal control. This uses more advanced technology to silence a dog's barking, but it's the same idea as the whistle.


See if there is anything outside in particular he is barking at, such as rabbits, squirrel, another dog, something else you think the dog might be barking at. The fastest and best way to end the noise is usually to speak to your neighbor face to face to work out a good solution. Unless you're on bad terms with your neighbor, the best way to solve this problem is usually to just talk to him or her about it. If you've seen the dog shivering or looking miserable in the heat of the day, tell your neighbor the dog could be barking because its uncomfortable. However, if you have various upset neighbors, maintaining anonymity may be useful to prevent retaliation of any sort. Silent whistles make a sound that dogs can hear, but humans can't, so your neighbors won't even know you're using it. The goal will be to make a case that the dog's barking is preventing you from enjoying your own home.[7] If you win, the dog owner will have to pay a small sum of money.
