I am writing to the owners of all those yappy little Furballs that are kicked out of the house at 7-8am and don’t see their loving masters till 5pm.
Little dogs get bored when cooped up in the backyard all day and love to just yap yap yap yip yap at nothing all day. This is most troubling to the elderly and sick whom are at home all day as well, the noise pollution is abhorrent and will drive one nuts. If you cannot leave your dog in the house because it wrecks the furniture or poops all over the house, give a thought to your neighbors who have to put up with it all day long.
There are things that can be done to try stop your loving little Furballs to continuously yapping all day, Bark Suppression collars are a good start, they work just fine on little yappy dogs. For the IT minded a simple webcam with bi-directional audio are a good way to keep eyes and ears on your yappy little Furballs, and call commands directly from your workstation either on your PC or from you smartphone, if you think your yappy little Furball is your household security then this is a good option.
I am trying to write this as understandingly as I possibly can, which is an effort as I am stuck at my new home with a painful injury and the neighbors dogs have been yapping and Yipping all day for most of the past month.
There are things the we can do with non compliant neighbors as don’t forget we, the recipients of noisy little Furballs, have rights as well, have a gentle talk with your neighbors first of all, if you find out they are as receptive to command and suggestion as their cute little loving Furballs, you may want to keep a diary with times and dates and submit a complaint to the ACT EPA online. It’s simply amazing what dog owners will do when there loving little yappy Furballs are threatened with eviction or worse.
