Dog barking in the night!

We have 3 dogs in the house & 2 do NOT get along. One is an idiot, but the other has decided that she HATES the idiot dog. At 11 p.m. after I've been in bed for several hours, the roomie who is the owner of the idiot dog came home &, of course needed to put said dog out. First the dog barked when she locked the other dog in that roomie's room (of course they are right next to each other.) Then when she brought her back in, they had to bark some more, then when she opened the other room to let the other dog out so she could eat, that dog had to go nuts, barking at the idiot dog. So, now I'm awake! I have to get up in 5 hrs to go to work! I'm about to kill a few dogs!

Oh my. That would drive me crazy too. Maybe your roomie can get a silencer for the dogs so they don't bark as much and sometimes none at all. They make silencers for dogs that have a barking problem. I feel sorry that you didn't get to have a good night sleep. I think I would end up getting me some headphones or something to drown them barking dogs out so I could rest. I really think you should mention the silencer to your roommate though. I hear they do work to keep a dog from barking so much and sometimes not at all.

Thanks for the suggestion. I left a note & I hope the roomie can catch the dog on the way in, & keep her in the back of the house, away from the bedrooms. I'm a side sleeper so earphones probably wouldn't work, but a good suggestion. I used my cd of waves to drown out the cat's loud breathing the other night, but the cd's only an hour & the dogs start it up long after the cd stopped playing!

That dog which barks in the night must be dispensed with. That is the usual procedure. Talk to the dog's owner about this. If he/she refuses, consult the authorities for their action. For sure, they will get rid of the dog for you. And so, there goes your problem.

That might work if they were neighbors, but these are roommates, I just don't think I can take that kind of stress - I can't afford to live alone.

ugh! we have dogs that bark all night in the house next door but not in the next room! that would drive me insane! you need to talk to your roommate and find a way to solve this problem..especially if this happens frequently. perhaps some dog training is needed.

I was thinking of those electronic devices that you put around their necks that, I think, give small shocks when they bark. I know my scat mat, that gives the cats small shocks when they get on my range, works wonders without hurting them.
