A friend of mine had a dog that just couldn't quit barking. It didn't matter what product was used or what kind of discomfort it caused, poor Maggie May had to bark. The need was greater than any amount of discomfort or punishment. My friend ultimately re-homed her. She is now in a home with kids and two acres of land and can bark to her little heart's content.

I used to have an Afghan hound that was a barker. I never knew it. After putting up with it for about a year, my neighbor finally told me she barked and barked and barked from the second I drove around the corner until I came back home. I'm just sorry my neighbor waited so long to tell me. The only time she barked when I was home was when someone came to the door, so I was clueless. For me, it was an easy solve -- let her stay in the house rather than in the dog run and she was quiet and happy.

It is not always irresponsible dog owners. Sometimes it is the dog. Sometimes it is easily solved once the owner knows about the problem.

As was said, dogs bark. It is part of their social life and it is part of their function to protect, so some barking is reasonable. Incessant barking is another thing and, hopefully, owners are aware of the problem and try to do something about it.

BTW, Lynn, you might trying keeping your Yorkie in an area where there no windows or at least where the windows are closed and away from the complaining neighbor. That might help. Also, it really isn't too late to crate train your baby and it really is a good thing to do. Dogs like their "caves" and will happily hide in one when frightened by things like lightning. (I know of one dog who runs right to the bathtub and stays in it until a storm has passed.)

Not a chance! Plus, it only works on dogs and you DEFINITELY don't qualify!!

I have a microphone soap on a rope that I use all the time! hehehe When we get down, I'll bring it to the square and we'll have a duet! They may run us off, but TV is about living, laughing and having a good time! Right?

I love TOTV.

Thanks K9 for the PM on what to check on our dog who bit our son. Will certainly ask the vet on the next visit.

Hi Josephine,
Kate is my friend and quite a nice person. Fumar has a great sense of humor and if someone told me I was like him, I'd be flattered.

TV is a friendly town for people and dogs and other critters. Many of us consider our pets as parts of our family.

The times I've seen dogs on the square, they have always been well behaved and appear to be enjoying the time spent with their family. The have attracted pats and admiration and brought smiles to scores of faces.

I understand and appreciate your right to disagree and advocate for a change in the rules. Those of us who see it differently are not mean. We just appreciate the dog-friendly rules and find these rules consistent with a people-friendly lifestyle.

I love dogs, LOVE dogs. My last two have recently passed on, had them since pups.

If a dog barks incessantly for hours, it's a problem, it just is.
it's rude and inconsiderate, period, and the owners need to find a solution.

I agree John. Probably the dog has separation anxiety and needs to be in a home with people around. Or possibly with other pets.

I do know two people who have dogs that have had their bark removed. Because the dogs barked incessantly and they couldn't bear to give them up. I'm not in favour of bark removal, but the humane societies are awfully crowded with unwanted dogs.

K9, you are much better at restraint than I am. You always have pleasant and educational comments. I think I'm going to have to give up reading dog threads or else tie one hand behind my back.
