Think cruel. Think unnecessary. Also think probably terribly unhealthy.
I do like the last submission, though, with the woman ringing the doorbell. Nighttime barking isn't a problem with the dog. It's a problem with the owners.
I don't think it's right to do anything to your neighbor's dog. Our nextdoor neighbors have two sheepdogs. We have talked to them about the barking and it doesn't work. Sometimes when they're barking early in the morning I feel like going to the window and yelling, lol!!! The neighbors behind us had a GSD who constantly barked. Giving him a little something to eat worked, and he wasn't too much of a problem as long as he got some kind of attention---from his owners or from us.
Well put, Gaddy!
I had a neighbor once who kept calling me at three in the morning to tell me to make my dog quit barking. The thing was, my dog was sound asleep on the living room sofa! I waited until her swing shift changed and I knew she was leaving the house to go to work at 5 in the morning, then waited until the middle of the week when it would do the most damage, and called her at three to tell her my dog was asleep on the sofa and had been every single time she'd called.
She didn't call again.
LOL Renee. I was just trying to find a site that had actual barking noise on it to see what Roxy would do. I couldn't find one, but that site popped up and I clicked on it and that's what it pulled up.
Anyway, just justifying the fact that I thought it was cruel and unusual.
Thats cruel. Especially the exlax chocolate. If anyone did that to my dog and I knew who it was, they would be begging to get knocked in the face. I cant believe people are actually promoting this kind of animal cruelty. What the hell is wrong with the world these days? Ugh....
My walls are made of stone and are nearly 3ft thick!! Would take a lot to hear anything through my walls!!
I would go mad if anyone touched my dog without permission!! I think that is cruel!! Spraying them and giving a dog ex lax is just nasty especially during the night when there's no one on hand to let the poor creature out if it needs to go potty!!
