Police or Note?

I tried to post this in weekly discussion but had an error message saying I had privileges or my account was disabled.


If your dogs were barking to the point they were disturbing the neighborhood -

Would you prefer your neighbors call the police or animal control

OR

Put a note on your door letting you know the dogs were nuisance barking and giving you a chance to fix it(note as you were not home and no personal contact made because of that)

Im actually going through this!

This guy moved into a house across the street. My next door neighbors dog barks constantly and is very loud... Apparently this guy works nights and cant sleep with the dog barking all the time. He had called the police on them twice, went over and confronted them and then called AC. Now the dog is quiet and I have not seen the dog as he is normally out front and his tie out is still there but have not seen him so I dont know what happened.

Now what really has ticked me off was I got a visit from AC the other day saying that there was a complaint about a dog barking out front. I rarely ever leave my 7 month old GSD out side by herself and when I do I check in on her every few mins, if she even makes a little bit of noise Im out there correcting her, but she rarely ever barks even at dogs and kids going past she just lays on the deck and is very content. So I was really ticked off at this and voiced it to the AC officer who told me (they were not suppose to tell me) that the same complainant called AC on my neighbor (which I already knew saw them out there two days before they came to me) and had also been to the house down the street that has a large Doberman/Rotti cross that is also very loud and barks.

I think this guy is just trying to cause trouble, my dog rarely ever barks and when she does I can barely hear it in my house because she is quiet about it so how he can hear her is beyond me, and she does not even bark at the door, the one down the street sure it barks and its loud but its not outside all day and I dont even really hear it.

I would prefer the person come to me and talk to me about the situation, this one just has me peeved off because of the circumstances and how Penny nor myself are at fault and he has no right to contact AC to complain about us. UGG the neighbor hood is never going to be the same with this new jack @** on the block!

So would I, but that issue would never come up at my house.

I would prefer the note and would give others the same courtesy.

I have good relationships with my neighbors and tell them up front to come to me if my dogs are bothering them. It has rarely happened, but the few times it has I corrected the issue and thanked the neighbor for coming to me. So I would prefer a note.

I would start with a note and give them a day or two to fix the issue, then make a formal complaint with the police if nothing gets better

As a police officer, in my state we have no legislative power to do anything about a barking dog. We would never even attend...

Instead, we would forward any complaints to the local council in turn they would notify you of the complaint and actions to be taken or penalties if ignored... But I think it's neighbourly etiquette to speak with the people in your street before going all authoritarian on them!

It's quite embarrassing when authorities have to come to your door. And will create future tensions - ones that no one wants or needed.
