They can be sitting on their arse. The dogs ARE, barking.
In the early thread; I strongly suggest the dogs were nearly in a near-by pistol site - lacking a squeeze on the trigger.

And your point is?

That we know.

If they are indoors and you can't see them, would you shoot up the whole house trying to hit them?

You snipped most of my post, including my point. It's in this thread somewhere.

Yes..........barking (constantly) in any situation is a violation here. on their ass, inside, outside.....it don't matter until you try to get some compliance from the guy next door.

You know the answer. The OP frustration would not limit a shot over the fence... if outside, I saw his point. I've been at wits-end. Did I punish the animal? No, but I cannot shoot the owner. I suggested declaring a 911 "duress" call for the pets; not knowing inside/outside conditions. It's in my post somewhere.

If you had no comment for the *dog situation itself*; being important in the thread - I'm sorry I snipped in the wrong place...............

Update:
I have filed a grievance with the Neighborhood Justice Center, which means this goes on paper, and will have to have a legal disposition. This is handled by the zoning department, and all complaints have to be legally finalized.
I did learn from a neighbor who said he had a similar problem and went through gyrations for six weeks. He was told by someone to report the odor of dog shit to the Health Department. Next day, problem solved.
I have located about six neighbors who are tired of listening to the dog and who will sign the complaints, so now it will go to the DAs office, and they will be fined.
BUT, more importantly, if it still continues, I don't have to do this crackhead tapdance through the legal channels. Just call, give them the case number, and citations will be issued.
And all this because the last time I went through this, I was a nice neighbor and said, "Well, the dog quit barking, so we don't need to start a war in the neighborhood." When I got to this point, I stopped. Not this time.
Well, cowboy, if you want to rodeo, I'm getting the first ride this time!
Anyone who leaves their dog outside and goes on a week's trip deserves anything that happens.
Lucky I'm not the type who would just "neurtalize" the dog.
BTW, I saw the dog roaming in front of my house this morning, and called him in. Maybe the owners are trying to get rid of the dog by letting him roam. Before this, he has been behind a block wall, and I have seen him for maybe five minutes in five years. I wouldn't doubt that these pieces of chickenshit would get rid of the dog in that way.
Tune in for updates..............

Definitely post updates. It's always a pleasure to hear of dog owners being made to suffer.

This is good to know, as it was not the case a few years ago when I was in your situation. Before it was just a red tape and no final result.

I'm pretty sure if you call PETA, explain the situation, claim your neighbors are Conservatives, they'll have hoards of screaming protestors out in a jiffy

Maybe the PETA guys will bring dog yummies, and quiet down the pooch?

Well, obviously Steve you have no compassion at all and are a regular jerk and waste of oxygen by the sounds of it BUT there is a real possibility if the dogs are barking from INSIDE the house, there is an emergency of some sort.
Either they are starving, have to go out or hear or see something that is disturbing them, ie: like a fire, flood, who knows.
I"m not sure why you say you can't get Animal Control to respond but you should have a Humane Society in your town too, ( you don't mention where you live, which in this case of your attitude, could be a good thing).
Google Petfinder.com. Put in your area and if asked pick a species like dog. You should be directed to a page that will list all or most of the rescues and shelters in your area and state.
Try calling or email asap. Time can be of the essence here. I rescued 4 dogs that were abandoned in a home, ( actually left outside) by someone that moved states away.
This sounds like an emergency. If this is the first time you've noticed the dogs making extreme noise after all these years, I'd say it sounds like something is very wrong.
Dogs CAN be left behind in closed homes by cruel people, so can cats and other pets.
It is not their fault. How would you like to fall, hurt yourself at home, and not be able to get help and lay there for days until you die?
If IS possible the pet sitter hasn't come. It is possible the owners were killed in an accident.
It sounds like some compassion is warranted here, and a suitable emergency response.
Try the Humane Society, or Petfinder shelter locator first, and fast, or call your local Humane Society for help, or a listing or shelters and rescuers.
And there is alway the peek in the window to see for yourself if there is food and water, evidence of feces ( indicating they can't get out to potty and abandoned) and or freezing temps, or another problem.
Assuming the dogs are barking just to annoy you is far fetched at best, and stupid at worst. You know what they say about assuming.
Call someone if you have to call the fire department to report smoke. OR check with the neighbors on the other side or across the street to see if they know anything.
Sounds like the animals are in trouble. Dogs don't just bark to annoy you.
Get help, then get over it. If you have a problem with the dogs on a regular basis, then you need to speak to the owners when and if they return.
Is there evidence they have moved? Or just away?? If they've moved, Abandonment is a crime also.
As far as the others with their neanderthal mentality and obtuse and really low life retarded stupid worthless opinions of law breaking violations and actions.
I hope you get stuck in a sinking car and can't get help.
And I hope the city finds you and arrests you.
What goes around comes around.
Steve, Please try to get help for these dogs, or at least go check on them to make sure their ok.
If I had an address I may be able to get some help, we have people all over the US.
They actually could be in trouble, by the sounds of it, trapped in the house with no food, water and unable to get out to potty. Starving is a terrible way to die. Especially for a helpless animal.

Since you seem to love the noisy filthy rodents, I'd suggest you go and "rescue" them yourself and take them and their noise and filth somewhere where they won't be a nuisance to the entire neighborhood.

People get a little ornery after being deprived of sleep, or peace and quiet for a few days. Dogs are one of the most popular causes of these crimes, so you need to be a bit more understanding. If the dogs need to die, then that's that.
