This is a usual incident in the surrounding area of your house. If you step from the front of the house the dog will start to bark from the nearest house. That incident will be a mess if that becomes a habit. So you have to do something. If you are friendly with the people there that won’t be a difficult activity. But I think you don’t know who the people live in that house. Then how you will be familiar with the people. That responsibility in your hand. Then we will see what can be done to make the dog friendly for you.
But ding forgets the qualities of your dog. Usually, dogs are a very kind type of animal. They are very loyal and Obedient. Their Barking may occur at various times. Sometimes they bark for a familiar person. And also they are barking at unfamiliar people too. The owner of it has the capability to identify the behavior of it.
To be friends with that dog follow the steps mentioned below.
Talk to Your Neighbor
First of all, you have to be friends with your neighbor. Also, that should be a nice talking point. If you are arguing with him or always do hard talking you surely can’t be friends with your neighbor’s dog. Try for this initially. If you resolve this positively you are the only person that is advantaged by this. The talking must not be rude as well as that it must be face to face even. From that, the dog will get a sign of friendship.
This is not the single way that you can’t get rid of Barking. Also,
Buy a Dog Whistle
You can buy a dog whistle anywhere. It is at the price of $5 to $15. When the dog is Barking you can blow the above whistle. For that, you have to keep the whistle at a place where you can take it easy. This is not very practical. So you can take a device that emits ultrasonic sounds. It works automatically. When the dog is Barking this device will emit a sound that is similar to the Barking automatically. I also think that the above will be a perfect solution for the baking of your neighborhood dog.
Other than the above two there is another solution left for us. That is,
Complain of the Noise
If the above two methods don’t work you can shift for this one. You can complain about this problem with various authorities. You can file it in the police station, animal control, or with the association of the homeowners. That means the dogs are violating the peace. Also if it barks at night time or any other certain hour it will be a terrible problem. So that you can move for the legal action.
Initially, the responsible people of that community will advise and give warnings to the dog owner. But if that continues the dog owner has to go to the court.
I think it is better if you have tried the first two ways. If you can’t find a better solution you can move on with the next one.
