How to curtail a neighbor's dog from barking out of control

Recommended Posts

What are "lady belts"?   The leather strap equivalent to a Cheap BB gun...
 

I thought a lady belt was the part of a bra that connects the back strap to a cup.

Does the dog bark at anything in particular?

Nope, they just go at anything that moves. I believe they are scared of their own shadows.

 

Some have posted to try to speak with the offending neighbor. But, I prefer to not go that approach as we don't necessarily see eye-to-eye from a past issue.

Do they chase cars?

 

Do a slow drive by with a rag flopping from a tire.

 

Maybe the owner will run out and bite the rag. 

 

End of problem.   :ph34r:

Ha ha. I have heard of this solution. The dogs are in a fenced backyard. If they were out running around, then I would never have started this thread ;)

So far the truck alarm thing was the best solution but I couldn't get past the murder thing.

Go out and buy a big flat of uncooked chicken wings. Toss them each one. Do it every few days or so.  By two weeks when they hear someone stirring on your side they shut up and sit quietly by the fence waiting for their threat. Just don't give them any wings while they're barking after a couple of weeks.

I agree with the people from India, cows are important.  

 

I like steaks too.

 

Neighbors dogs used to get into the wifes chickens.

 

She locked the dogs in the kennel and called them on the 1st offense.

 

2nd offense I locked one of them in the kennel and ran the 2nd dog home with a .40  cal glock.  I made it a point not to shoot the dog, just make a bunch of noise.  Then called and told them if they wanted the second dog back they should hurry over as I was getting ready to take it for a ride..

 

Neighbors arrived, pretty much pissed that I had scared one dog home and locked the other one up.

 

With Glock in one pocket, and Judge in another, I explained that I did not want to hurt anyones dogs or they would have already been shot.  Also mentioned that this was the second time and I hoped there would not be a third.  As I would not call them again.  Did not mention that I would have called animal control though.

 

No more problems with the dogs.  Or those neighbors.     :o

Cougar idea is looking even better.

Ya know we have a "new" neighborhood animal around... It's a rooster :blink: ..... We have a small horse farm right behind our house and there's another small farm across the street. We think the rooster lives there. We can't see him but we can hear him. It's just far enough away that It not bothersome. You can just hear him.... Now if he was right next door it would be an issue... Cuz I've heard him as early as 3:00 am :o.... I've gotten up for a potty call and I could hear him with my bathroom windows open.... Now if he was right next door..... yea I would have an issue my neighbor..

It doesn't work if they are inside of one of those doggie electronic zapper fences that keep them in the yard.

Growing up on a farm, I never did mind the sound of all the animals I had...lots of them. I always HATED the guineas because they would nark me out every time I would try to sneak in late. 

 

Back on topic. A shock collar on the dog owner would be very effective.

If he ever becomes a nuisance get yourself an axe, a nice white wine a good Coq au Vin recipe and a Dutch oven. A couple of hours later you'll be full and the rooster will be forever more quiet.

My experience with dog owners suggests they are pretty much deaf. At least to their dogs barking.

I love Dogs, but if none above suggestions work, IF they are in direct view, a LOW power BB gun VERY CAREFULLY shot at the rear end.

After a few times, I'm thinking like 3X+, they will stop. Lars

Some of the neighbor kids did this to our Great Dane and all it did was get the Dane pissed off at them whenever he saw em'.

But I still don't see how shooting a dog will stop him/her from doing something you don't like if it can't/doesn't relate the cause and effect actions. The dog may not know you want him to stop barking but may even feel he's trying to warn you of something going on that he's trying to protect his owner, or other people from.

For instance, we have two cats and it's nearly impossible to correct them from doing something wrong and to stop doing it at all times (when you're there or not). If you correct/yell at them afterwards you didn't teach them to not do something; you only taught them how to be scared at all times.

Record the barking on a loop and play it for them when they are sleeping. 

 

If one night of that don't work, leave it play for a weekend while you are away, or even a week.

 

Ya gotta make sure it is very loud and annoying.

Similar to parents who ignore a misbehaving child.
