the dog next door is crying



  1. I didn't even know they have a dog. I can hear crying and crying from the other side of this apartment wall. I knocked on the door but nobody's home. It's distressing. What should I do? Is it just some puppy that is missing it's owner?

    Probably. My dog does this everytime I step outside for 2 seconds. Best to just ignore it.

    my puppy does this for a little while after i leave in the mornings, then he'll quiet down...i put the radio on for him which helps...maybe you could suggest that to your neighbors?

    If they don't come home today, let the humane society/animal control know. Hate to think it was abandoned, but it wouldn't be the first time. At least let them know the dog is making all this noise.

    awwwwwwwwwww............... How can you stand it? That would break my heart to hear.. I'd have to just leave.

    Yeh... I'd sure ask your neighbors when they get in... it may be the dog just isn't used to them leaving yet.

    I have had the same problem for years. Neighbors have this Jack Russel Terrier. I hate these dogs. I guess its not his fault, he just has crappy owners. the lots are big, but the barking just echoes to our house. None of the other neighbors can hear it. I draw the line at night though. He seems to have gotten somewhat better over the years. Just a little voice training would do this dog wonders. But like the owners said" the dogs gotta have a life" Why do I have to have such completely stupid neighbors????? Next time he barks at night we are just calling the cops. A few weeks ago he started barking at night like at 1130 ish, they said they could n't catch him. Do you think they tried going outside or off the porch? NOOOOOOOOoooo.

    My neighbor's dog is a barker; he hated me going outside to do yardwork!! I bought some dog biscuits and started heaving them over the fence, haven't had as much trouble since.

    It also helps that I have gotten double glazed windows and slider throughout most of the house. If they are barking, I can't hear it very much. That's not why I got the windows, just a happy side effect.

    I am not so nice about this. I own a condo, and a new owner moved in and bought a dog. I study, I sleep odd hours because of clinicals, and my roommate works nights. I cannot STAND to hear that dog whine and bark because the owners leave it outside. I went over twice to talk to them about it, and to explain my roommates sleeping days and that the window is right above where their dog cries and barks all night and day. They never answered the door. SO, I called the management and told them that this was unacceptable.

    Haven't heard a peep since.

    I've been having a similar problem with my neighbors. The dog barks the entire time they are not home- for 12-16 hrs straight, literally.

    I've left them notes, talked to them, I even spent over $100.00 on two devices that claim to stop a neighbor's dog from barking, but they did not work. Finally, I called the police. The neighbors came home while the cops were there. My neighbors are now mad at me- but it was worth it. They now pay attention to their freaking dog, and his barking has been greatly reduced.

    This is why I'm glad I live out here in the country......... I lived in various apartments and condos for almost 20 years, and I DON'T miss the thin walls or the sounds of the neighbors' dogs whining/barking all day & night.....or their kids, their fights, their parties, or their lovemaking!!

    Just to put a different spin on things, How old are your neighbors? Is it possible that they are in there in distress unable to care for their dog? I think I would just call the police, if you have never heard a dog before it may be because something is just not right.

    Or it could be that they have bought the dog from hades, but I would feel better if I knew for sure that the people were okay and the dog was okay.
