Why do people let their dogs bark?

Really, why? Don't they hear the noise? The woman behind us has two dogs. They bark day and night and it's just a nightmare. We've tried talking to her, and there just is no reasoning with her. She is absolutely psycho and just unleashes a torrent of profanity and verbal abuse.

Her son (poor kid) is a bit nicer, but he's lazy and won't get off the sofa and let the dogs in. What is wrong with people like this? No consideration at all for anyone else. The worst part is most of the time when the dogs are being a nuisance, these people are home. How can they not hear it and how can they think it's ok to disturb their neighbors like this?

They say they care about the dogs, which is bs. If they're so concerned, why are the poor neglected critters outside in the cold and broiling heat, barking for hours on end? These people shouldn't even be allowed to have a dog.

I'm 110% with you on your argument. I don't know you, but I feel for the situation. Best bet, is to call the police for noise ordinance violation. Assuming its after hours after.(10 p.m. I believe.) i understand its a smaller issue for them to get involved in and I know MPD has their work cut out for them, but once they start receiving these calls in volume, the city will get involved and will fine them for the infractions. Once they receive more than 3 calls, is when I believe, action starts taking affect.
Its a shame people like that are allowed to own animals..
