Ask RiotACT: Dog Barking Help

So I moved into this neighbourhood about 8 months ago, and had been enjoying it. That is, until about 2 months ago one of the neighbours got a dog that wouldn’t stop barking at… nothing!

I mean, it probably starts barking at 7 or 8 in the morning, and wouldn’t stop until the people have come back. By wouldn’t stop, I really mean, wouldn’t freaking stop. Not even for 3 or 4 minutes.

I had contacted TAMS regarding the noise, and they don’t seem to have done anything so far, so the other day I walked up to the fence and snatched the phone number of the owner off the dog’s collar, and texted her. Response was… mixed. They said they were getting collars, and dog doors, and anti-barking stuff, but there have been no actions for this matter so far and the owner was not apologetic in the texts.

I’m not sure what else to do. I work from home, and choose somewhere far from city for the quietness and peacefulness, but now the privileges are ruined because of this stupid household with their stupid dog.

Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs, but really, not when they are barking all of the time. If the dog keeps barking like this, I will be going insane very very soon.

Can you give suggestions on what I should do?

What’s Your opinion?

When we had the bogans living next door to us their dog used to bark and escape and do its business on other peoples front steps….
A person unknown put one of the droppings in an envelope and put it in he the offending owners letter box with apparently a letter threatening the life of the dog if it was not restrained. I only kenw about this because rangers turned up in force and started interviewing people, not about the much reported barking or pooping on other peoples property but about the threat to the dogs life….. The dog apparently had a go at the rangers and was taken away….
Very sad, its never the dogs fault, its the sometimes moronic owners….

Tallow might be what you need. … Have you got any tallow.
I seem to remember a poem where tallow and a dog was mentioned, and the dog disappeared.

The poem was written by Henry Lawson and called The Loaded Dog. Stan Coster put it to music and here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvZH1ul4ZrE

The Loaded Dog is a short story, not a poem.

Sometimes I miss the pedantry…

But have you seen the mural in the hallway of the Loaded Dog Hotel at Tarago?

I regret I haven’t. Have been through the joint hundreds of times, but never stopped. I will next time. Very interesting little place. http://www.loadeddoghotel.com/history.html
