I love dogs, I truly do, but I am not so enamored of dogs that bark and bark and bark, especially at night when I am trying to sleep. We have new neighbors that have a beautiful mixed breed, very large dog who is very vocal. If this dog lived in the house, the sound would be muffled somewhat when he is being vocal. However, this dog lives outside in the back yard. I don't know if he is barking because it is a strange place to him or if he has been doing it all along. I'll have to go meet my new neighbor and talk about her dog. I really am not thrilled at having to listen to a barking dog all night. I wonder how they can sleep through it?

I am certain the new surroundings has the dog more edgy than usual. There may be night sounds he is not used to and he may feel lonely. Just like children, they get confused by changes. Hopefully, he will quiet down. That being said, I just do not understand why anyone has a dog and keeps it outdoors. I think I would complain a lot too. Poor dog. It is ill treatment of the dog and inconsiderate of neighbors. I hope it goes well when you attempt a discussion with the dog's owners. You are very kind to handle it in this fashion.

@dorianna I do understand about their discomfort in being in a strange spot. What I don't understand is why their humans didn't bring the poor dog inside. Like you I feel it is abusive to keep a dog outside all the time. But, that's just me

@dorianna that's awful. I wonder sometimes if people actually think that an animal can't feel the cold or heat. I will never understand that type of person.

I hope talking to them will help. Luckily our neighbour with the barking dog is far enough from our house that the sound is muffled unless we are outside. But that dog really does bark a lot too!

@paigea unfortunately talking to the owner did not help. She basically told me it is her yard, her dog, deal with it. It looks like we will be having problems.

@HazySue Oh, that is too bad. Why people have to be like that, I just don't know.

The dog may be unsettled by the recent move and will quieten down once he adjusts to his new home. It would be a good idea to speak to your neighbours meantime because if they are nice people they will do something about the barking, maybe take him indoors for a while.

Perhaps the poor doggy doesn't like living outdoors. But it's a general nuisance for there to be noise of that kind after 10pm in most places. Going to talk to them directly is a nice thing to do, you could just call the police.
