My neighbor's dog barks all the time. It is 5 a.m. and I've been up since 1:30. This is not uncommon. I live in Bethel Branch and have appealed to the Homeowner's Association a few times this year about it. The problem goes away for a week or two and then it's back.

The city council tells me it's the responsibility of the Association to deal with the neighborhood problems and I'm losing sleep and patience. The dog's owner is not home tonight and the shepherd's bark penetrates closed windows and walls.

I'm aware the city has a noise ordinance and the neighbor denies that her dog ever barks unless there's someone around her house.

There's an easy way to deal with this problem. Put some antifreeze in a bowl and feed it to the dog. He'll fall over dead. Problem solved. Or you could just shoot the dog. Either or.. hell with the neighborhood association people... they are just like the politicians in Washington. Corrupt!

I would call animal control. If there is no one there to take care of the dog when he is barking out of control then they should be able to take him. If you can't do that maybe you can file a formal complaint through the county so you atleast have that on your side for the future. We had the same thing at our old house, we ended up buying the dog large bones so it would keep him busy at night. The owner refused to do anything about it.

If there is a noise ordinance then the owner will have to keep control of their dog whether they are home or not. If it is late at night call the police dispatch number (not 911) and have them send someone out to the address. Tell them that the barking has gone on long enough. The owner will most likely be made to get a bark collar or medication for their dog.

They will knock on the dog owners door and give a warning the next time its a ticket. Keep doing it till the dog is gone or stops barking.
