You are right that is a poor trade off.

Sorry I don't have much humor or tolerance for anyone threatening or attacking a pet in it's own yard for doing what comes naturally. Your beef is with the owner and that's where your attacks should stay and not with the dog.

I am at work before the sun comes up every morning. Missing sleep because of a barking dog is not part of the plan. Never will be.

The owner has 3 choices.
1. Shut the dog up.
2. The police do it.
3. I do it.

These things ARE part of the plan.

Best wishes,
Frank

Boiled down; you're right. Put the onus of the problem on the owner (regardless of age). If the owner is infirm or incapable of training the dog; talk to the daughter, who got her the dog, and let her know the situation. They should have a chance to correct it; if they don't, then go to #2; enough of #2, and you will have justification for calling animal control for #3 (don't do anything to the dog, he/she is not to blame).

well just yesterday, while I'm working on some telescopes outside my garage, here comes cassie barking his headoff. Ms. Jackie, the owner/neighbor, comes out so I asked if I could play with cassie. it wasn't the first time, although its been awhile since I played with that cute pita.

I tried playing catch but cassie was only into it for two times. but then I thought, your a hearder, so I started playing tag with cassie. cassie was having so much fun while I'm having a heart attack running all over the yard playing tag.

so after I recovered from a massive myocardial malfunction, and said by to cassie, he still went on to bark his head off while Ms. Jackie made him go back inside.

This would be an excellent opportunity to tell her that you appreciate her taking the dog in, when barking; especially when you are observing at night, which is what you are trying to accomplish.

Beyond talking to the woman or her daughter, there is nothing tou can do about daytime barking. At night, well this is something else, there are noise ordinances and the police can and will take care of the problem for you if you notify them of the problem. The police will take care of the problem in a polite but mater of fact and professional, this is the law, kind of way. Never take the matter in your own hands with the dog. First it is not the dogs fault and second there are laws that will get you in big trouble if you do anything to the dog.

This is indeed one of the most annoying yapping dogs many of us have ever encountered; it's not just the OP's nights he's ruining, but for weeks now he's also managed to annoy CN members thousands of miles away from his bark, er back yard. Even the most high-strung yappy toy poodle ever doesn't manage that feat.

Ok folks, I think this thread has run it's course. The OP has many suggestions he can follow thru with, if he desires.
