    Angry Barking Dogs.....Guess how many?

    My neighbor, who seems to be a very nice lady, has not 1, not 2, but 12 beagles. No, that's not a typo.....I said TWELVE!! For 2 years now I have kept my mouth shut and not said anything because I don't want to "rock the boat" so to speak. We all live on acreage so there is plenty of room for her dogs, but the way our house sits with her field is awful. I have to keep the windows across the front of my house closed or we can't even talk at the dinner table because we can't hear eachother! Forget trying to relax on our deck either. My husband leaves at 5am for work and the beagles are out barking. I go to bed between 10pm and 11pm and the dogs are barking. If a bird flys over the field....the dogs are barking.....etc..... It's making me insane! Here's my problem.....I am too darn nice to complain to her. For some reason I feel bad!??! I'm thinking of maybe printing something out on "How to help your dogs stop barking" or something on "Citronella Bark Collars" and leaving it in her mailbox. What do you think? What would you do? And if you'd say something to her how would you say it? I know I know......I need to quit being a wuss!!
    Oh....I did check with the county and she has a Kennel License.

    Don't be a passive aggressive ninny sending letters or dropping hint memos... just be a good neighbor and go over and speak to her about the issue like a grown up.

    I can't help it.....it's just the way I am. I don't like confrontation. I always end up feeling bad even when I shouldn't. I don't know how to approach her and what to say without coming off harsh. I have spoken to her numerous times with the intent to say something, but she's so nice that I am only able to say it in my head...Your dogs make me CRAZY!!!

    Genocidex: I am liking your approach! Straight to the point without sounding like a jerk!!

    Most noise ordinance laws include barking dogs...I would check into that.

    I'm pretty sure a kennel license doesn't mean their dogs can bark non-stop. Looking into a noise ordinance like MCHR says is a good idea. But first I would go and talk to them. You don't have to be confrontational, just ask them if they are aware that their dogs are constantly barking and it's really annoying for you. I know from your point of view it's hard to believe, but they may not be aware that you can hear the barking, or that its annoying to you. I have found that talking calmly with my neighbors about "issues" alleviates most of the issues I have with them or they with me, without having to go to more drastic measures.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    +1 to this & + 45 to Trillianne

    Personally I have never suffered from "I just can't say something about this-itis" [Shocking to some readers I know ] but I DO understand it can be difficult to overcome.

    One thing I would mention after 2 years of putting up with it is that saying nothing is THE perfect way to guarantee nothing changes.

    What you do about it is entirely up to you but the ball is in your court.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
