How upset would you be if your neighbor.... ETA..AGAIN.
Got a squirt gun and sprayed your dog with water if it barked at them through the fence?
What would you do?
I'm seriously considering doing this.
Every morning at 6 am they let thier 5 yappy ass dogs outside. The come to our side of the fence and bark like there's a wild animal over there. Waking me, and my baby. I can't go outside without their dogs barking at me, cannot enjoy the new flowers I planted, or have a cup of coffee outside in the morning before it gets too hot.
There are two families living next door, parents with their adult children. The parents always try to get the dogs into the house if they start barking. The adult children just leave them.
This is a rental, so a new fence is out of the question.
I AM nice to the neighbors. My old babysitter for my oldest is one of the parent's daughters. We've talked. We let them use our guest network on our Wifi because the mother got a Kindle Fire for Christmas two years ago. The dad mows our front yard in return. We've gotten their mail for them while they were vacationing, I've brought over food while one of them was in the hospital.
I really don't want to call the police/animal control on them; the parents are so nice and actively try to handle the barking. It's the adult children that are there that really don't care.
I think I'm going to try one of Sonic bark things like what a few others have suggested. (THANK YOU!) Posting an Amazon link for the one suggested, for those who don't know what it is. I think $40 is okay to waste on one if it doesn't work.
One more thing. I've talked to them(both the parents and their adult children) about this multiple times. So has my DH. The parents actively try to get the dogs inside when they start to bark. Their children do not. And have said things like, "Dogs bark. They like you. They just want to play."
