Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. It would be hard for them to take action, if you are following the law and legally allowed to maintain the dogs. You have a legal right to use and enjoy your property as you see fit. As long as the barking is not excessive or during the night or early in the morning where it could possible be viewed as a disturbance, it is something which they have to deal with. As you shared, you are outside with the dogs and correct the behavior when they bark. You do not leave then outside unattended. If you wanted to, you could simply place a muzzle over the mouth of the barking dog, to stop this and take it off when they come inside. I have two dogs myself and go through the same thing, so I completely understand what you are going through.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
