I live in a small rural neighborhood...everyone has between 1.5 acres and 2.5 acres. I am not in a subdivision we are just county property. Anyway my neighbors had her dogs on an underground fence. They got out and attacked her neighbors dog, so now both of her dogs are on chains. They bark, whine and howl ALL DAY! It has been a couple of weeks now and it is driving me INSANE. We are friendly with the neighbors so I don't want to get into a fight about this but they are not doing anything to stop the barking. They are home and know the dogs are barking but I guess they are better at ignoring it than I am. I thought about calling my neighbor and letting her know it is bothering me. My husband says that because we are in the county and not in a subdivision if our neighbor decides not to do anything, there is nothing we can do. Does anyone know if this true? Can a person in the country just let their dogs bark all day? Any suggestions on handling this without starting a war are appreciated.
