I live in a condo. I've been woken up every day the last week and a half by my new upstairs neighbors being too loud. I also some times get woken up by my other neighbor playing music too loud. I've never been woken up by a dog. Although I can't stand the sound of a barking dog and would not tolerate one who barking often or too loud.

Here's an update:

The dogs bark about once every 10 days. Just a quick burst of barking at say, 1 AM. She got bark collars, but I don't think they work for the isolated barking incidents.

I've decided I just have to live with it. I wear earplugs every night. We have to have the windows open due to DW's hot flashes.

Other than that, the neighbor is totally invisible. It's weird, actually. Who rents a house by the ocean and never goes out to look at the view or walk on the beach?

T-Al, since you pointed back to this thread from a newer one, I have to ask:

What happened between this on 5/9 ....

and this on 6/16....

Why didn't the landlord get rid of the dogs?


Hmmm, maybe they offered an unreasonably high rent, considering the profit margin they might have on the product they were growing? And the landlord decided, ' hey, dogs aren't so bad at an extra thou a month'?

Maybe a talk with the landlord that if anything like that happens again he could be considered complicit in the crime?

The landlord let them stay because evicting for a lease violation is costly and a PITA. Then - if successful - dealing with the cost of the vacancy just adds salt to the wound.

Better/cheaper to listen to the neighbor complain.
