We have a yappy westie next door to us and although the owners take it out regularly when they put it in the garden it barks constantly until they let it back in.
They let it out very early every morning and it's yaks & yaks & yaks all the time it is out. The promblem is amplified during the summer because obviously we have the windows open.
My OH is up at 5am every morning for work so at the weekend the last thing he wants is to be woken by the b****y dog. One sunday morning last year we were woken very early so OH shot out of bed and went round to ask them to bring the dog in or stop it from barking. The disgruntled neighbour said the dog only barks when there is someone out the back to which OH replied "yes us in our own garden".
In fairness they don't let the dog out so early now however it still barks all the time it is out. To make matters worse their son now plays the trumpet and is relegated to the conservatory to practice...and we thought we had problems with the dog barking!!!!!!!
