My neighbors dog and what to do about it

One of the neighbors in my apartment (not sure which one yet) has a dog that they must kennel when they arent home and it just barks and howls all day every day. We have complained to the apartment many times and they have yet to do anything about it. I did see there is a "Public Nuisance" law here which covers a dog howling/barking constantly. Should I just go around the apartment and call the local PD? If I could figure out which place it is, I would just talk with them but after living here for almost 6 months and having heard it every one of those days, I am quite sick of it.

I would also call local police. There is nothing more irritating than listening to someone else's dog bark for hours on end.

Is it possible that the owners aren't aware? I'd follow the noise and let them know. Another option would be to go to your apartment manager, point out your previous complaints, and let them know that you expect a credit on your bill. If you take money away, they'll react.

theres no way we are the only ones that have complained about it. I think there are 12 units in my building and if I can hear it above the TV or music, they must be able to hear it as well. Tomorrow Ill stop in on the manager and let them know thats the last time Im speaking with them and I am going to the PD about it next.

I agree I would have already called the PD, after the first time I talked to the Apt manager and they did nothing, no apt manager likes having the PD show up to deal with complaints on a regular basis, it's bad for business.

Offer to pay for the debarking surguery. LOL

All kidding aside, if the management company refuses to do anything about it, and you don't want to look like a dick to your neighbor for calling the cops on him, file a rent escrow with the court and make your monthly rent payments to the court until the management deals with this situation.

As was pointed out above, the owner may not even be aware of the problem. I'd personally want to know that the owner was aware of the problem and not doing anything about it before involving the police, but then again, that can be tough if you don't even know who the owner is. I'd really try to find out who it is and talk with them about it first, and I'd even be nice about it unless the owner pulled an attitude about it. (I would have done this a long time ago as a dog that barks non-stop is really annoying.) IMO, a lot of people are very reasonable if you talk to them in the right way and provide them with a solution. If that fails, or the person is rude in a "not my problem" sorta way, that's when I'd call the cops.

As for the apartment management being very non-responsive, a lot of places are like that because people will talk a big talk, but won't actually do anything, so they can get away with it. It's the same reason a lot of businesses will pull something crooked, then laugh at the threat of a lawsuit. They hear it a lot and people rarely follow through.

I dont know how the owners wouldnt know about it. They must hear it till the get to the door and go inside. Havent heard the dog since this thread which is kind of odd but as soon as I hear it, Im going to hunt down the exact unit. I have a day off during the week this week so Im sure I will hear it then and report back on what happens.

Call Animal control, they can enforce county ordinances pertaining to animals, I believe we will have to do this, on my road there is a house amidst a cluster of houses that are close to the road, the owner lets 5 dogs run loose in front of the house and in the road (they are like maybe 15 foot from the road), its stupid, they chase cars and will hardly let you go anywhere, one of my neighbors said her husband hit one with a truck by accident, yet they still left them loose days after, so we will likely be calling animal control about that... Sorry, wasn't trying to hijack your thread, but try animal control.

You'd be amazed do and do not know about what goes on at their places when they aren't there. They seriously may not know. Or they may know, and not know what to do but they don't want to get rid of their dog. Or they may just be *******es who don't care. If you find out that any one of those true, I wouldn't be surprised.
