Dog next door just keeps barking and barking


#1

not 24/7…but he goes into a mad barking fit for say 20 minutes, 3-4 times a day.

fucking does my head in.

in its defence, it’s a Border Collie and as far as I can tell, it never gets walked.

was chatting to my neighbour the other day and she asked if it annoys me. I said I don’t hear it, because I’m not a cunt. she then told me she hated the dog. not so keen on this atttitude, tbh

Get the RSPCA on the blower mate, it’s bang out of order to have a dog (especially one like a border collie) and not exercise it.


#3

Why did you like Silks? Don’t think it’s cunty to tell her the truth if it’s doing your nut.


#4

I wish I could do this, man. and anyway, not walking a dog ain’t something the RSPCA will be that fussed about. no crime is being committed.


#5

I was raised to let shit like this sliiiiiiide, my man


#6

Give em a bell anyway, I did it with a dog next door a while ago and then it’s on record at least if anything does escalate


#7

Just link them to this thread.

But yeah, I’d have told them I could hear their dog. If they asked.

That’s not being a cunt.


#8

was thinking maybe they might get ratty with the dog. I don’t want to be responsible for that. I often hear them telling it to shut up


#9

Poison the dog and owner.

Sorted.


#10

Do people hit dogs? Like I know spanking / smacking kids is now frowned upon by most people, but do people give dogs a whack if they’re acting up? And does it work to discipline them?


#11

I don’t know how people can do this. Couldn’t bring myself to do it on Fable II.


#12

hmmm. I might do this. seems like the decent thing, doesn’t it. hmmmmmmmmmmmm


#13

regularly see dogs being walked getting a quite firm tap on the nose. not something I enjoy seening, but I ain’t a dog man, dog. maybe this is standard


#14

I’ve never had a dog so don’t know if it’s a thing or not. Vague memories of my aunt giving her massive German Shepherds a back-handed slap on the rump for or tap on the nose for barking when they shouldn’t or something.


#15

People do do it because it does work but they shouldn’t do it.


#16

If the dog is trained well, it’ll respond to being told off and doesn’t need to be smacked.


#17

Yup, you can be equally as effective by perfecting your “cross with a dog” voice, they respond better to tone than most other things.


#18

I’ll bet they do, Tony!
