The neighbours dogs just wouldn't shut up. I like animals and everything but if I had a gun I would have shot them .Is there anything but you can do to get dogs to shut up other than kill them?They kept me awake half the night and they kept waking up the baby.I'm desperate here.I think I will call the police if it happens again tonight.

Did you try talking to the neighbors? If all else fails, you might want to call the police and file a report. They should give the owner a warning or citation. If this noise continues, I'd call the police again and again. Eventually the people will have to quiet the dogs or get rid of them. I do know how annoying it can be to listen to barking dogs all night but if the dogs are waking your baby, I'd have a hissy fit.

And I don't blame you one bit for being mad. You had every right.

If you are awake then the owners can be awake too. Phone them up at 2am and go 'Woof woof woof woof' until they hang up. If that doesn't work or they put the phone off the hook then write on a sheet of paper 'Woof woof woof woof', tie it to a brick and chuck it through their window! It's not the dog's fault - it is the owners.

The dog barks for a reason. First, you could try to talk to your neighbours and try to help them. The dog is an animal, and not quilty at all. If someone is to be "killed", it's the owners. If they do nothing to stop it, then they should be reported to the authorities. It could bark because it's in pain, because is hungry, need to be taken on a walk, or some other reason. If they cannot find what it is in some time, than they don't really deserve to have the dog.

The neighbor is not controlling his dogs. They are a public nuisance. I do not know what the law is where you live, but here in Canada and the States, you can call the police and they will go to the neighbor and tell him to keep his dogs from barking. One way is for the owner to have a bottle of the same amount of water and vinegar and spray in the direction of the dogs. It would cause them to breathe deeper.

Hey neelygal The same thing is happening to me, my neighbourgs dog started barking a week ago, but they are almost deaf so they can't hear him. The first time the dog started to bark, I couldn't sleep for the whole night, I thought I would lose my mind to, I wanted to kill him (you should watch Keeping mum, a woman has a problem with a dog too :D) For almost two nights I couldn't sleep. So I've bought some ear plug (like on this site: http://hearos.com/) and I don't hear the dog anymore. Well, I can hear him sometimes but not very loud, and anyway I don't know what else I could do to make him shut up :) Hope this helped ! httpx.
