Re: Barking dogs

Suggest you move next to a church.

Then use the search function in the forum to see where you can complain about church bells ringing 24/7. By which time you'll have forgotten all about Muttley's barking.

Re: Barking dogs

Hi, I found in the internet many good advices on your dog-barking issue.
For example:
Talk to your neighbor. Many people jump straight to drastic measures instead of simply talking to the neighbor about their concerns. Unless you're on bad terms with your neighbor, the best way to solve this problem is usually to just talk to him or her about it. You could casually approach your neighbor next time you see him or her outside, or write a note asking to set up a time to talk.
Your tone at this point should be friendly and be respectful, yet firm. Don't make legal threats; you may have to do that later, but for now, try to keep things civil.
Assume your neighbor is unaware of the problem. Say something like, "I knew you'd want to know that Sadie's barking is audible to us at night, especially since our bedroom faces your yard."
Explain that the barking is having a negative effect on your sleep, concentration, and so on, and that you would like to work out a good solution.
Thank your neighbor for hearing you out and making a change. Most considerate neighbors will do their best to accommodate you right away.

Re: Barking dogs

We have a dog and we have inquired about this.

Dog can bark as much as he wants during daytime, however, it depends under what circumstance. If the dog would be for instance, 8 hours alone, or more than 4 hours in a cage, that is apparently not allowed by Swiss law. If you suspect that is the case, you need to contact your canton's official veterinary department and provide details, so they can follow up on this.
I had to recently contact them regarding a family putting their dog in the trunk of their car, a closed trunk, next to grocery bags, etc...
