Have you lost sleep because a neighbor’s dog is barking uncontrollably? Are you at a loss for how to handle the situation? A new website called StopMyNeighborsDog.com may be just the solution.
StopMyNeighborsDog.com allows neighbors to address their concerns by sending an anonymous pre-written note or e-mail to the disruptive dog’s owner.
“One of the most frequent sources of calls to local animal control departments is excessive barking from dogs,” said Randy Boyd, president and CEO of Radio Systems Corp., which created the site. “We hope the website will help ease friction between neighbors and also keep otherwise good dogs from being taken to the pound.”
Concerned neighbors can choose to send an anonymous postcard or e-mail pre-written in a friendly, humorous or serious tone. There is also an option to include a personal message.
Along with the note, senders can include professionally-written tips on controlling nuisance barking and a coupon for one of PetSafe’s bark solution training products.
