Well the ultra sound does not work through solid walls, just so you know. It may work through the door though, or under it if tipped down. You want
the sound wave to enter the area that the dog is barking in. I did notice that it bothered my cats a little, which I did not like, but soon enough the
dog stopped barking outside.
But unfortunately we live in a duet, so I could still here the dog barking inside the house in the early morning, and late night. But at least it was
not outside barking anymore because in the summer out here in California where it's sometimes 80 degrees at night, you want your windows open for a
cool breeze, so it was hell.
Animal control sent repeated letters to my neighbors after I complained, there are laws against barking dogs out here, but it's a long process to get
anything done. One time this asshole next door came over pounding on my door holding one of them in his hand. Well apparently he took my former
kindness as weakness. Let me just say that he has never came back after I introduced him to the dark side.
So animal control told me to keep a log where I write down the date and time that the dog was barking every day, which was almost 24/7, I am not
kidding you. Once that was completed, they set a mediation date for our neighbors and I. Well, I refused the mediation because it was an hour away,
and I knew it would be a waste of my time. What was there to mediate? Just shut your dog up, period.
It's simple really, they can do one of these things.....
1. Have their dog trained by a professional.
2. Purchase a shock collar that trains the dog into understanding that barking all the time is not a pleasant experience.
3. Buy a muzzle.
4. Get rid of the dog.
I suggested all these things to the imbecile, but it was as if he just thought that I was going to just have to deal with it. After all, he lived
there before me right?
Wrong! Our nightmare finally ended when we had our Lawyer send him and his nutcase Wife a letter threatening to sue them for harassment, and loss of
wages due to lack of sleep. I processed loans from home back then, so the barking drove me crazy when I was trying to concentrate on working.
So after all that, the idiot finally buys a shock collar and rarely do I ever hear the dog bark anymore. Hey, a little barking is fine, dogs bark, but
not 24/7. Nope, I am not having it.
As you can see, I have no sympathy whatsoever for irresponsible dog owners, they are plague, like stupid people. We all deserve a certain amount of
peace and quiet during certain hours. What is even worse, is that the neighbors behind me moved in and the same thing started all over.
Luckily, this gal I could communicate with, and she purchased one of those hanging ultra sound bird house units, and the dog only barks when the
batteries run out, but she is pretty good about replacing them.
Calstorm, I am sure you can go and speak to an attorney, and pay them a small fee to send a letter to those puke bags that you live next door to.
Usually a letter from one knocks a little commonsense into their brains because it will cost them money and time. It worked for me.
Funny thing about the second neighbor's barking dog. It was the same kind of dog that my other neighbor has, a Puggle, a wretched breed.
