Is the neighbors’ barking dog making you crazy? Does it bark and keep barking every time you open a door or go out in your yard? No matter if the dog is chained to or by the fence where it notices you more or its running loose in the neighbor’s yard does it bark as long as you are outside or have touched and are standing by a door?
If so the barking may be driving you out of your mind. The barking can not only be irritating and frustrating but it can affect the enjoyment of your property and any yard work or outside upkeep that you do including fence repair.
As the expression goes, “If you can’t beat’em join’em.”
One option is to do just that if you’ve exhausted all the courtesy that goes along with the disturbance of barking dogs.
Record the dog barking or purchase a sound effect CD that contains a barking dog. Make several copies of the CD to put in a CD player that can hold several CD’s or a multi-CD player. Put them on random play so that there will be pauses when you put it by a window or door to allow for real time barking when you hit play. Put it in a continuous random play loop.
Relax and let the barking drive your neighbor’s crazy.
If you are able to put your CD player outside where it can be protected from the elements of weather, rain and hail etc., and nature, pests and insects, and where it can be protected from getting stolen you may choose to do so. The player needs to be hidden from sight on your property to keep it safe. Keep in mind that if you are able to sit your player outside you may be able to rig it up to a motion sensor. So when the neighbor’s or their dog walks past it within range the CD player will activate and the barking dog CD will go off.
You also might be able to rig it to a timer kind of like an alarm clock.
Just be careful that you know what you are doing or you could ruin the CD player or connected device.
Also take care that you could get in trouble with the law or turned into the cops for a barking dog and possible disturbance of the peace. The ironic thing is if the neighbor with a barking dog calls the cops about a barking dog disturbing them their dog may get busted for disturbance.
