The shepherd behind us barks loudly for extended periods of time, in the afternoon and evenings, and sometimes late at night on the weekends. The owners seem to be home, or even outside with the dog while this is happening. This has been an ongoing issue for several years now and with the nice weather, it gets even worse. It is unbearable at times! How about a little consideration for those who live in the vicinity and put the dog inside when it barks? We pay taxes and mortgages, too, and have a right to some peace and quiet.
