Rite... Along with “mooing” cows,“squealing” pigs, and “clucking” chickens…Quite regrettably “braying” jackasses were left out of the ordinance… Pity that... ;)

I think it is a bunch of crap! How are u suppose to keep a dog from barking. I have 2 dogs and they don't bark unless somebody they don't know comes to our house. What is next no kids outside playing because they you can hear them? You need to get a life!!! People like u is why our country is going to HELL!

No there is no law in Sullivan County against barking dogs!! I had the most miserable life living in TN. I complained constantly and wrote to Mayor Godsley. He would rather we shoot or posion these dogs!!! I wrote a letter to him about these dogs and their Owners that did not taken responsibility for their dogs!! I explained I have heard of dogs being poisoned or shot!!! Oh we tried to pass it several times, meaning he rather have the animal killed or poisoned.

You are not getting the point!!! If they bark when someone enters your property!! OK !! If they bark when you are on your yard, if you are working in your property. If they bark every time they are outside. If you get woken up day or night by their barking!! I had 2 dogs since I lived here both never barked constantly. If they barked it was they heard something or saw something but it is not a constant annoying bark were you can't be in your yard or you are woken up!!! Sullivan County Sucks I hear dogs everyday just barking!! People like some of these neighbors are not good neighbors because these people don't care!!

We also have a lease law and my neighbors on my street just let these barking dogs out on their front lawn so they can roam and bark if you walk by! I stopped walking in my neighborhood so I don't have to deal with this annoying barking!!

Jim i understand you problem. I to love animals and a dog is mans best friend. Now lets shed the real problem here. Its when people build a dog lot down next to a property line. 100 ft away from there house . Good thinking when they don't want to be woke up at 300 am in the morning. So the dog can wake up the neighbors. Here is a good one for you my neighbor did just that he also takes his dogs in. In the day to stay cool to sleep all day. So your correct you cant stop a dog from barking. So the proposal that i am going to make in this law if you have a kennel then it must be close to your house that way a barking dog can wake the owner of that dog.dogs are like kids and part of the family. So you would not take your child to the property line cause it was crying.. So why a dog kennel on a property line its a very selfish act to do so if you got a dog you sleep with the barking dog. Its not right for your neighbor to.. Every body needs sleep. Hope that this clears up a little with you jim.. And to let ya know that it may not be you but some people are taking advantage of the laws the way they are.. Ps dogs bark while playing with kids but not at 2 or even 3 in the morning.

Way going Bill. I have another problem since day one with these neighbors. A lease law.. I can't be on my own property without these dogs running up on us in my own yard. I can't say goodbye at my door without these dogs running up on us. I can't put the garbage out, I can't walk my dog and so on and on!!! I have a video of them tramping around I want one when they confront me and my family. They actually came up to my door because we bought a nice window door so my dog can look out. Brand new door with a bunch of scratches!!

Joann M. put a electric fence in front of door and turn it on when your dog is looking out and sit back and laugh

My neighbor has a dog, but worse they have the most annoying damn kid you have ever seen! Constantly in everybody else's business, nobody around here can step outside without her yelling some long story at them. What's worse is, the parents are trash and that's why she is how she is. You can't do anything about that either! A dog is nothing compared to that.
