I see that you live in Fenney. In new areas, I think it is common for people to not follow our laws about dogs being leashed.

We moved into Osceola Hills two years ago and saw several people with unleashed dogs. A couple of unleashed dogs charged up to us in a very threatening manner so I reported it to the TV office near Starbucks in Lake Sumter Landing.

We also reported it to the Sumter County Animal Control at 819 CR529 Lake Panasoffkee. To get there, you drive south on 301 to Sumterville, turn west on route 470, and CR 819 will be on the left a little before you cross I75. The person there was very friendly and took our complaint and said they would contact the dog owners.

The next time we saw the owner, the dogs were on a leash.

I agree that a visit with the dog's owner may be all that is needed.

I encounter people on my daily morning walk and some ask me about me carrying a "walking stick". This is why. Well that, and I am from NY.

Yeah, after my encounters with unleashed dogs I began carrying my hiking stick with a sharp metal point.

Default Dog Barking?

[QUOTE=coffeebean;1625419]I have never heard a barking dog in Mallory.......until today. The dog barked non stop (with 10 second breaks about every 5 minutes) for nearly 2 hours that I heard. I went outside on this glorious day to do yard work and the dog was already barking off in the distance so who knows how long the dog had been barking already. The dog was probably 2 or 3 blocks away from me but was still so very annoying! I can imagine how awful it must have been for neighbors on the same street.

How can a homeowner allow the dog to bark and disturb the beautiful peaceful environment we have here in The Villages? The only thing I can think of is the pet owner left the dog unattended, probably on a screened in lanai or worse yet.....tied to a tree.

WOW! Will the management do anything about a dog or anything else that annoys us? Well, Hey, you paid to live here, right? You want some help, right? Better shape up, pay your fees, however, do not expect any special treatment. Do we have rules, Yep, lots of them. Do we enforce rules?? Well, that is another matter.

I think I remember you are getting ready to sell your home here and move on.

It is my experience we find the same general types of folks everywhere. I think that more law abiding people and rule followers live in The Villages than any other place I have lived. May be how they were brought up that stuck. Our moms were a lot STRICTER.

Don't know in Mallory you live but there is a portion of it that backs up to that farm. I live down the road from Mallory so a distance from that farm area.....have heard a dog barking (distance though) from time to time. Could it be from there???

I do agree that "some" people don't abide by the leash laws. I've seen walkers with their pet, not on a leash AND have seen them at the postal stations too. IF there would be any type of altercation where their dog bit someone, they would be held libel and even have to pay vet or doctor bills, depending on the situation. NOT worth being sued over. Just because things "might" have been different back where they moved from, it's up to folks to find out the laws and rules in their new location.

You will need to find out the street name and house number before you call authorities.
I agree, please talk to the neighbors.
Something might be wrong inside, or they may not realize their dog barks incessantly when they're gone.

We don't live anywhere near a farm as far as I'm aware. We are close to the Mallory mail center.

Elaine Bennis has experience in matters such as this. You'll need someone who can drive at night and into the forest.
