I Hate Barking Dogs

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 143 People

    We have two dogs at our house.

    I hate them both. One is a young, overly energetic collie mix who nobody in our household has enough time to properly train or exercise. The other is a 14 year old ankle biter who is going deaf and blind that will bite you if you walk too close to him (even if he was the one...

    I love pets.  There is nothing like the unconditional love they give you.  They're warm and cuddly and soothing.  I wish I could but I can't have any pets of my own because I'm fairly allergic to them, so I get to appreciate my neighbours' dogs.HOWEVER... I can't stand it when...

    Man Up Dog!

    The lady who lives above me has a dog that barks all the time when she is not home. She isn't gone very often, so it is not a huge deal. I think that is why I do not really like dogs because they are so needy most of the time. Cats tend to be more independant, so I prefer cats to...

    There's one thing that I could never stand at night and that's a dog that continuously bark and won't shut the f*** up. I mean d*** they bark all day so when night comes all that barking that they do during the day should tire them out. Some dogs bark for no reason at all and...

    I had a little yapper run

    after me while barking its head off. All its owner said was, "Aww, Buttercup, come here honey". Yeah, coddle your dog for acting that way.

    I'm upfront. I'm not a dog lover.

    Neither am I a control freak who needs to play hall monitor with the neighbors. However if they do not respond to this last plea to keep their dogs fenced and quiet at night my husband and I are going to take them to civil court. 20 years of this nonsense is enough. We installed...

    My Journey With The Dogs

    We moved into our new home in a beautiful golf community 4 years ago. It's not a terribly fancy neighborhood, but it is just beautiful! I guess what I'm trying to say is you don't have to be rich to live here. The houses are very nice and well-kept. The community has some...

    Im 300 pounds. Im a very imposing looking guy.

    When there is a dog as big as me, ready to rip my throat out, I call it quits and head the other way.

    12 Years Of Misery.

    If I'd had any idea what I was in for I would have never bought this house.  For 12 long years the two mutts across the road have carried on all day, every day,  over nothing.  Weekends are slightly better when the owners are around but its only a marginal improvement.  One...

    Its Dog Owners That Drive Me Mad

    Sometimes I like to just sit down and read a book and relax or I might have a headache. But because someone has decided to own a dog I am expected to put up with hearing it bark.

    I Hate Sil Barking Rodents

    I hate my SIL's barking rodents, they are supposed to be dachshunds. I don't consider them real dogs cause they look like rats, act like rats by pooping and peeing all over my house. Sure my SIL has 'tried to work with me' but after a year I can't take anymore. This morning I...

    I Love Dogs But...

    Owning six dogs sometimes drives me crazy especially with all the barking.  Why in the world would a dog just sit and bark all day and night?  I guess I have spoiled them and now that we are staying with my in-laws they can't have things the way it used to be but it is...
