How to silence the neighbours dogs

I live next to a lovely old couple (who are partially deaf) however their dogs are absolute s**ts when it comes to barking. I've approached them before from a very kind angle explaining the noise waking up my baby etc, however the noise continues. I love dogs, however a giant trebuchet loaded with pedigree chum seems more and more appealing by the day.

Ideas on the back of a postcard welcomed.

You are a car owner so will have access to anti freeze but its a horrible death so i would not recommend it plus may be criminal repercussions if caught.

How about one of them super sonic alarms that go off when barking is detected?

If you google "dog silencer" there are a number of ultrasonic alarms which might be useful.
Son (electronics engineer) & I are thinking of something similar to silence our student neighbours when they're back from hols

Console yourself that when your kids are older and they will shout, scream, play, kick footballs and generally annoy your elderly neighbours.

All very valid comments - can I rent a merlin engine on a show trailer from anyone? Should be loud enough

Or arrange a few Sunday morning drive outs meeting at your house, when they complain, point out that's once a week, their dogs are perpetual...

I had a similar issue, but with vastly more aggressive neighbours. One day when the very aggressive dog got out again and was chasing somebody down the street I got out a tyre iron and used the magic words "If I get near that fu**ing dog I'll kill the little sh**" which had them run out of the house and get it in. Hasn't happened again since and it's been a lot quieter!

Maybe some overly aggressive behaviour or perhaps holding a meeting of your friends with shotguns to compare noise of blank cartridges in your garden at 3am will persuade them.

This!

Do they bark inside their house or just in the garden? It's up to your neighbours to train them but I'm imagining they are the elderly ype to baby their mutt which has never socialised with other humans or dogs. We have two that are relatively chilled out until the neighbours sister brings her pugs to stay. Her dogs run to our fence yapping which starts our two off much to my annoyance.

We find a decent blast from a super soaker over the fence works well

I feel your pain. I'm listening to the neighbours dog barking right now because it's probably seen a fly in the garden or something. Unfortunately I then have to hear the dicks who own it shouting "shut up Ben!". If they'd walk the effing thing occasionally the dog might not be such a tw@t.

We had a problem with a neighbour's dog. The poor thing had been thrown out of the house when they redecorated and was kept out in the garden with a kennel and it barked all the time, but particularly at night. The trouble was that it was summer time, so we had to have the bedroom windows open and our baby monitor automatically amplified sudden noises, so it was like the dog was in the living room with us all evening. We couldn't turn the baby monitor off either, as it also monitored our son's breathing and he'd previously nearly died due to repeatedly stopping breathing. Luckily another neighbour was also finding it very irritating and reported it to the council and the owners had to become more responsible.

So sick and tired of people who can't look after dogs, don't pick up their dog poo, or do and leave it hanging in trees. To my mind, 70% of the public are antisocial but it doesn't affect anyone until they get an animal they can't or won't control or look after.

if they are out in the garden a simple solution is a nice piece of meat/smelly food attached on your side of the fence. they will spend their whole time occupied sniffing up and down the fence on their side trying to work out where the smell is and how to get it.

Seriously, unfortunately, my experience is that your only legal recourse is the Council. Noise nuisance will require measurement, evidence (no issues there), followed by Abatement Orders and Enforcement. All this causes the expected....

Aggressive neighbours and/or with plenty of time (i.e. those on benefits, pensioners, public sector) will give you a good 'punishment' beating for such action. My experience, very ugly.

Ignore. I can't use my garden due to neighbours dogs, feral children, feral visitors and dread what's waiting when I come back from work. Social responsibility....?

We suffer similar issues with our neighbours dog unfortunately. Lovely animal, very friendly eyc., but a barking PITA when they're out or at night. To be fair it irritates them as well, but neither they nor we know how to deal with it. On our side we do have 3 kids aged 10 and 2 at 8. They make more than their fair share of noise outside this time of year and our neighbours do have to put up with it.
