Re: Anti-barking device for a dog

I do understand Floydy, and it is very selfish of your neighbour to do nothing about it. The longer the dog is allowed to do his own thing like that, the harder it will be to train him not to IMO.

Are there any neighbours on the other side of the bloke? Would they back you up? He might take more notice if two people complained.

Yes, a lady who has a labrador. I'm not sure what she thinks.
I'm not afraid to confront the bloke but I don't want to get into an argument. That's never a good thing with neighbours is it? Plus, he's also an extremely boring man with no practical common sense.

Re: Anti-barking device for a dog

Have you considered a meal for the dog laced with anti-freeze?

Cheers all
There has been a lot of discussion recently in a local Facebook group about some people who have a noisy dog. In fact, they live at the bottom of the road on which we used to live, although we don't remember hearing it but, of course, that was over ten years ago.

If anyone should find a reliable system that works, I'm sure these people would appreciate my telling them.

Re: Anti-barking device for a dog

We had a dog that continually barked in our street.

One night the dog disappeared - literally. Nobody saw the going of it - but I did give my neighbour a very speculative look.

Re: Anti-barking device for a dog

How's it going with the neighbour's dog Floydy?
Any improvement?

Re: Anti-barking device for a dog

I remember reading a long time ago, a woman "dog expert" wrote that you should never say No to a dog because it was a negative experience. Much better to say something positive, so if it was barking, give it a positive command , like for example Sit Down, which if obeyed would likely stop the barking.

Well I do not think much of her advice, I think NO is an excellent command and use it regularly. To my dogs it means what ever you're doing Stop It.

My dogs are not barkers, but I'm sure a strict diet of NO would soon make them quieten down if they were.

I don't know who the woman was, but perhaps she was a very early example of the snowflake hand-wringer brigade we hear so much about today!
