So we live in the city in a townhouse with a little patio where our 2 GSD's love to sit and guard the house. There has to be like 100 dogs per block and every time a dog walks by our house they get barked at by our dogs. Some people laugh it off, some get annoyed and some people especially the ones just looking at their phones get startled by our dogs. The other day a girl's dog made a jump because he got startled by ours and the girl tripped and fell. She was fine but we are concerned that some day someone could get hurt and we could get sued. My personal opinion is that dogs tend to bark and if you own a dog, you should be prepared to get barked at but this is America and the law doesn't always make sense. I would hate to keep the doggies inside all the time because they love to be outside....What do you guys think? By the way we don't let them bark outside all day, we wouldn't do that to our neighbors.
