Three in the morning and the dogs are barking.

I was having a lovely sleep last night because I was tired when I went to bed. I really needed a good nights sleep. This was not to be because at 3am the next door neighbours dogs started to bark. I do not know what they were barking at , but my neighbour has three large dogs and they were making a lot of noise. After that I found it hard to go back to sleep again. Is their anything or anybody that keeps you awake at night?

@destimona It always takes me ages to go back to sleep once I have been woken up.

That would be very annoying to be awakened by dogs barking. Fortunately we do not have that problem here. Sometimes the people upstairs can be very noisy, walking around late at night, so I turn a fan on when I go to bed, and that helps.

Do they not allow pets where you live?

@millie02 Some people have cats and I know one lady has a dog on our floor, but I have never heard it bark. We're really not supposed to have pets, but they overlook the cats.

@AnneEJ I suppose the pets get overlooked if they are quiet and not seen much.

Do you prefer to work nights or would you rather work during the day if you could. What sort of work do you do?

@millie02 Either way, I'm fine with it. My work depends on the time zones of the clients. I work from home. I do legal consulting, legal writing (drafting of contracts & other legal documents), legal research and translation (website, general and legal).

I usually sleep right through anything except if one of my dogs is making a sound I wake up to make sure they are okay. I used to have neighbors with barking dogs also so I know how irritating that is.

@millie02 It is awful when you get woke up be a neighbors dog barking, you would think the neighbor would call their dogs in the house and not let them disturb other people.

Big cat likes to tell me what a great mate he is, by walking and purring on me. Doesn't matter what time it is

No dogs keeping me awake at night, but health reasons.

Sorry to hear this. It can make you feel worse if you do not get your sleep.

Oh that is irrtating. We also have a few noisy dogs a few houses down but they usually bark in the afternoon not while I am sleeeping. Hope you got back to sleep.
