neighborhood dogs that are out after 11p and barking their heads off til 1a.
Fortunately, my town will not stand for this kind of thing for more than a year or 5.

Just over a year ago, a neighbor decided to get a furry yapper; like clockwork - every morning sometime 0700-0800, every evening sometime 1800-1900, every night sometime 2030-2200 and several times throughout the day, it'd go off.

Fortunately, one of my 2nd story windows is positioned such that a speaker placed there would be aimed straight down into where the dog is.

I've noticed that playing this sound at maximum volume through an old '80s ghetto blaster seems to shut the thing up pretty quickly.

Edit - also, after just a day or two of the speaker treatment, it now very rarely goes off on a barking spree - that now happens maybe 3-4 times per week at most (vs. the previous 6-8 times daily).

I couldn't not hear it in the least, but it got the doggos attention...and Mrs Markintosh yelled "what's that noise?"

You know what else is awful?

A bird sitting in a tree that decides that 2 AM is the right time to start making a bunch of racket.

Then turn off the outside lights and quit fooling the birds into thinking it’s daylight.

No outside lights here except for the streetlights and the birds still chirp at all times of the night (although mostly in late spring or early summer).

Both of those situations are very Cesar Millan-ish.

It's not exactly how he'd do it, but it's the same concept.

Something, or nothing (boredom) is making the dog bark.

Distracting it from that thing causes it to stop.

If it was done every time the dog started barking and stopped when it did, the barking would probably be very infrequent.

But it's a little tough to completely pull of without hands on, but you got some relief.

Well done.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

Yeah, it's utterly dark in my backyard where my bedroom faces.

It's probably a Mockingbird. You can't reason with those guys. They do sound pretty though.

A mocking bird wouldn't bother me.

Well, unless it was mocking a barking dog.

I heard it. My dog ignored it.

I'm not really sure what to make of that.

Couldn't hear it.

Happily enough our neighbors are VERY good with their barking dog. He's not out late nor very early and when he starts barking they take him inside. Neighbors from heaven!

I hate barking dogs any time of the day or night. I really hate them.
