Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
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. If the dog is left outside during extreme heat or cold, this would be considered a good reason to call animal control.
Asking a neighbor to keep his dog in an indoor crate when he is not at home can help solve the barking problem. When I moved into the building where I live, dogs weren't allowed -- it was only for decent people. You can trap them, but if that crazy feral cat lover responds to animal control, then they release the darn cat back into the wild -- my neighborhood. The dog owner is responsible for their dog and ultimately responsible for their dog barking.
Second (which has nothing to do with dogs or that neighbor) is never buy a house with a shared driveway unless you intend on piling snow next to your house.
As for my man-child car wash neighbor, he basically sits outside watching a fire and getting drunk and stoned every night until 2 a.m. I have a dog that barks occasionally, but the problem is that I am deaf and could not hear it at all. I am a dog owner and I know that dogs bark, but we have never let our dog bark without us stopping her. When approached about the noise,they always say dogs will bark and that's good because it keeps prowlers away. Animal control gave them another warning, and three days later three of the dogs barked from midnight to 5 a.m.
She called the cops, and when they got here I was explaining what was going on, and while I was talking to the officer, she baked again and got my dogs to barking!
If that doesn't work, I'll put together barking records and audio recording, and take them to small claims court.
Our neighbor's big dog is confined to the back yard since we have good weather all the time.
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.
If the authorities get multiple calls about the same dog owner, they'll be more likely to take action quickly. Even after getting the authorities involved, some stubborn dog owners won't comply with requests to quiet the dog. This uses more advanced technology to silence a dog's barking, but it's the same idea as the whistle. If the dog barks every time it sees movement, blocking its view of your movements might help.
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.
O.K., a dog that barks excessively is wrong, but some of the posts seem to suggest that dogs should never bark! I don't want to disturb my neighbours, but I could not hear and quiet the dog when it is barking. Well, I ticked them off by saying that is false, because if you never come out to see what they are barking at, then a prowler could rob you blind. That's right, court, because of lazy owners not wanting to do anything about their barking dogs.
She's already not the most friendly dog thanks to being rushed, lunged at, and bothered from the time she was a puppy by aggressive off leash dogs. Since I live in a two story house, and the alarm was set, it's just easier to open my bathroom window (which I did), only to find my neighbor literally hanging out of her window, enticing my dogs to bark!
If that doesn't work, I'm going to invest in some heavy duty outdoor speakers and a sound system, and blast them with my favorite tunes when the dogs bark. I very calmly but firmly told her that the barking was disturbing my sleep and, boy, she got really defensive! So when they come home throughout the day, their dog barks its head off until they finally greet the damn thing. 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're pretty sure you know what the problem is, there's nothing wrong with making suggestions.
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. If the dog is being severely abused it will be confiscated from the owner, but in most cases animal control won't take the dog away.
Silent whistles make a sound that dogs can hear, but humans can't, so your neighbors won't even know you're using it.
Sometimes I know the dogs are barking because they are outside with lightning, thunder and pouring rain.


Well, too bad for me that doesn't happen because the lazy jerks next door won't let their dog in.
Sorry, but if anyone thinks I'm going to train my dog not to bark if someone tries to break into my house, then you're all mad.
There are online sources that have dealt with a lot of barking dog cases and have formulated letters that will effectively get the dog owner to stop their dog from barking.
The dogs ate all of their food in one day and commenced to bark constantly for five days and nights straight. They literally said the dogs aren't that loud and accused us of altering the video to make it sound that loud. She does well unless someone else in our neighborhood decides to leave their barking dog outside, unattended, to go crazy. As responsible dog owners, we have already taken care of the problem and got a training collar for our pup. Now we've moved to a new area and whenever we walk her past this one house, the dogs go insane and rush the windows and bark aggressively. My neighbor came and told me that she didn't sleep one night and I apologized, and took care of the situation, I thought.
They have 90 feet from my kitchen window where they are allowed, to "run at large." This can't be true! Instead, they'll come to assess the situation and try to educate the owners as to how to properly care for the dog. 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. If the dog is being set off by your cats or other pets moving in the yard at night, this might be enough to quieten the dog. Whenever she starts barking, we bring her inside or go outside and use it as a training experience. I have seen her, (along with some friends who come over) calling my dogs to their boundary closest to her house and when they get just as close as they can, she takes pictures of them and yells and screams as if they are attacking her! If you can afford it, go for thicker glass, but make sure the framing is strong enough to support it.
All day they sit in a small yard, doing nothing except barking at everything that moves before she lets them in at night. It wasn't horrible today (three times while I was outside, about two to three minutes each time), but each time it happens, I can feel my blood pressure rising. We used to have dogs until they died, but we didn't leave them outside at night to bark and keep others awake.
Based on all the entries I've read here (and yes, I read them all!), it sounds like talking to the neighbor in person doesn't yield good results. Dogs are a huge responsibility and 90 percent of their owners don't take responsibility for them. I thought about a note taped to the door, but these new neighbors aren't the friendly types.
