I think my neighbor might be a psychopath. He lets his dogs out and eggs them on to bark as loud as they can. Who does this??? My neighborhood is full of dogs that always seem to be outside and a lot of them bark (especially if there is a siren or something) but I have actually witnessed this guy praising his dogs for barking incredibly loud at very rude times of the day (middle of the night, very early morning even on weekends). I'm extremely frustrated but don't want to approach the guy, he weirds me out. I've heard other things he's said while outside (he has a very loud speaking voice) that just sounded bizarre and creeped me out. What am I supposed to do? I also have two dogs who are very well behaved but when his dogs start barking (encouraged by their owner) my dogs go crazy and often wake me up in the middle of the night, scaring me. Any advice?? It's to the point I want to call police or animal control or something. I feel like it isn't the dogs' faults since he stands there and seems so proud his dogs are annoying all the neighbors. He also lets his dogs use the bathroom in my front yard. I've never seen a grown man behave this way. Just had to vent. This is virtually an everyday occurrence and is making me feel like I can't even be at peace in my own home. If he's outside I wait until he goes in if I have to leave or something, he creeps me out that much! If he does see me he says "You have a great day ma'am" in a creepy voice. He's probably in his late 30s early 40s and I'm in my mid 20s. He's married I think but I never see his wife anymore. Help!!

Well if you can tell me how to keep a dog from barking, you will probably be a rich person. I have 2 dogs myself and they bark as well, but they are dogs....not people...lol. Are you crazy or just stupid? Sounds to me that you are the one that is psycho. The cops can do nothing because a dog is barking, if they could, every dog owner in america would be in trouble. Sounds to me, that you have way too much time on your hands worrying about this guy. You seem to know everything about him which is a little creepy as well. My dogs bark as well and I can not hear them from inside my house, so you house must have paper thin walls. Get a life!

If you need to know how to keep a dog from barking all the time It's easy. You take the nasty unruly thing to the vet and have it's vocal cords cut, It still barks but you don't hear anything.

If you live inside the city limits you'd better learn how to keep them reasonably quiet; complaints regarding barking dogs and other noise problems breaking city codes will be dealt with seriously. It's up to the citizen to report the infractions and it's sad to see so many too afraid of the perpetrators to call JPD.

Excessive barking AFTER 10 pm IS breaking the citys noise ordinance. Anything prior to that is just really considered annoying. You're best bet is a neighborhood petition before addressing the problem. One complaint won't stop it.... a combined effort will. I'm more concerned as to why he would encourge their barking though. Generally you want a dog to bark FOR a reson... not entertainment. What exactly does he do to make them bark? How many & what types of dogs? I ask because your smaller yappers bark at a blade of grass moving... & when one starts... the rest chime in.

They're pretty big dogs. Definitely not small yappy dogs. Also, when the guy is outside with them telling them how good they are for barking, he slams his door multiple times. Either a car door or his house door, not sure. But he does it more than once, sometimes up to like 10 times in a 10 minute period. I don't know if he's doing it just to mess with me or what, I've never been rude to this guy or his dogs (he also has cats that use my car/fence/yard as a playground). My dogs are inside dogs, but when they do go outside if they start barking I put a stop to it.

Also, to the people telling me to quit complaining about the dogs barking, you try living with this crap for a while. It's literally every single day this happens, usually very early in the morning (which wakes me up) or in the middle of the night. When his dogs start up (again, because he is encouraging them to bark loudly) all the dogs in the neighborhood start. I'm complaining less about the dogs (because I don't feel this is their fault, this is about a bad dog owner) and more about the actions of this man. It's to the point I'm uncomfortable in my own house, nervous to go outside if he's outside. I just get a bad feeling from him, and from personal experience, when I get bad feelings about people they've usually turned out to be people I should stay away from.

You should get that kind of vibe from old Lap Lapper 2 then. I got bad neighbors 2 and know what you mean. The barking's bad, them turning them loose to dig and crap and kill the grass in everybody else's yards is worse. I got a buddy whose neighbor hid in the dark and tried to sic his dog on his wife, a guy I know and who goes to the same Nazarene church I do, so that was a disappointment. He's a creep, but didn't know he was that sick. You got to report all this and give them names. If you got a video cam then you need to use that and be ready to go to court. Nobody seems to have any respect or morals any more. You got to be ready to stand and fight for your rights.

Film it and take it up to the police department to demonstrate what you're complaining about. They'll probably pay him a visit. You probably do need to film it though because the JPD needs a detailed diagram that even a kindergartener could follow in order to comprehend anything.
