Finally ran out of patience

We have determined the neighbor has at least 3, possibly as many as 5 people living there, whcih explains how they could afford the place. There are possibly as many as 5 vehicles as well, the two that are normally in the driveway, the junker on the curb and two others that have been seen parked in various places on the street.

They leave the dogs in the back yard all day and they just bark. I finally had enough of it and when I looked over the wall the bigger dog ran up to me and started barking even louder. Sicne you cannot see through the wall it isn't possible to tell from the other side I had the garden hose. I blasted it square in the face with a full force jet and it shut up, at least for now.

It may take a couple of times for them to realize that the jet spray can hit anywhere in their yard and there is no place at the moment they can hide from it. At the moment the initial shock hasn't worn off, the dog probably wasn't ready for anyone to fight back.

I don't want the dogs to be any more miserable than their current owner seems to make them. I just want them to be quiet when I'm here.

Just don't let them see you do it. Also see if you can talk to the Neighborhood association, and/or the old owhner about the current situation vis a vis the vehicular collection out front.

Apparently I won't need to do it all that often. The dog has only made noise once since then, and it shut up and slunk off as soon as it saw me over the wall.

I don't want to torture the dogs - they don't appear to be very happy as it is. I just want them to stop bothering me. We seem to have reached a truce.

We aren't the only ones complaining, either.

That sort of things worked for our neighbor's dogs year ago too.. good strategy.
