Dear Short Answers:
We live in a neighborhood where there are 20 plus dogs who yip, yap, yelp and bark constantly. We get no peace trying to enjoy our deck and yard. The neighbors show no respect for taking their dogs in when they start barking. Some even leave for the day and leave the dog(s) outside. We bought a dog silencer but that doesn’t help. Any advice other than to move?

Dear Mad:
Send your dog owning neighbors a firm but polite note stating your problem and ask for their cooperation.  If you do not get a satisfactory response you should enlist a higher authority: either local police (most towns have noise ordinances) or your local animal control organization.
