If you haven't lived there and you live in Florida you have NO idea what has been going on on Church St! US residents there have had problems for SEVERAL years ... while you were living it up in FL... they werent barking too much in August because Downey has been renovating and she is keeping the dogs up because of people in and out... so keep your nose in Florida

I live near Ms. Maynard and i can assure you that the dogs are being provoked by a neighbor. Not only have i seen these particular neighbors disturbing the dogs(dog whistle, spraying with water hose,swatting with a branch,etc.) but my husband and my kids have all seen them.
They are mean vile people who lost the first court case and are bitter about it. I believe they will stop at nothing to drive Downey crazy.
They have got the town Mayor in their pocket and they think they have won.

Barking dog or dogs is/are a problem all over most of Nashville, unless it ticks off a city council member, a major political donor, or someone they fear might have the clout to replace them.
Metro has dog laws, plus minimum property standards. They refuse to enforce the very laws/codes they adopt, and; if they respond at all, it will positive if the grass is cut.
Neighorhoods have literally gone to the dogs. I cannot mow my lawn or sit out back without dogs barking. People seem to think that dogs are a substitute security device.
It is sad, as there is no substitute for walking a dog or dogs and making the dog or dogs a part of the family. Instead, Rover is let out outside, does his or business, and then rewarded hours later for barking. Not a single dog owner in my neighborhood, except a policeman, has a well behaved dog.
Tired of barking.

Bunch of BULLLLLLL - No ONE knows like the immediate neighbors of these 11 LOVELY BARKING DOGS that this is INSANE... for someone in FLORIDA to comment on the Dogs behalf is RIDICULOUS and also to Concerned Nashville - a friend of Maynard the other court cases were WON by the citizens... the evidence STACKED up - for her friend (Vicki Luper) to say she NEVER heard the dogs bark is dumb as CRAP she stuck her foot in her mouth. Yes the dogs were provoked - everytime a squirell ran by, kids played in their yards, people attended church next door, we went out to cook on our grill just the mere standing in our yards provoked these 8 - 11 dogs to bark. NO ONE MADE them bark! That is BOLOGNA - Becky's daughter ( Friend of Maynard ) was photographed and was on video banging on the fence then hiding to agitate the dogs.. they thought it was funny.. it was Maynard's OWN friends making these dogs bark solely for Laughter... Who is laughing NOW ... the GAME is OVER Court of Appeals agreed with the Citizens ... now down to 3 dogs and become a citizen of Nashville like the rest of us and stop acting as if Nashville owes you something and you are special.

Yes, these are barking dogs. I have personally heard these dogs on almost a daily basis barking. Person in Florida should stay in Florida. YOU cannot possibly know what's going on in Nashville living down there. Did you move because of the barking???????? This is a residential area and should be treated as such. Dog breeding belongs in the country. The LAWS should be upheld by NPD.
