I live in a rowhouse and know neigbors can cause problems if they want.

I think that Miss Katie and ruger said it wisely. If she starts to mess around with authorities ask your other neigbors to affirm that your dogs doesn't bark. Besides that write down every time when your dogs bark. If she makes a list like this too you can compare them afterwards if you need proof. Your other neigbors can help you to resolve who's right.

We had a big problem with out neighbors a long time ago, they complained our air con was too loud (after living with it with no complaint for about 4 years) so we had to get up on the roof and build a little foam house around it. But no, still too loud, so we had to get rid of it, pull ALL the silver tube stuff out from inside our roof, etc, and now only have one wall mounted unit in the lounge room.

Well, years passed, no worries. Then we got home yesterday and they had put a note in our letterbox. "Dog is barking during night and keeping us awake early mornings. Please prevent this from happening" Aargh! We LIVE in the house, and we don't hear them barking. They sleep in the laundry which is right across the hall from my parents bedroom, my dad is a superlight sleeper and he DOESNT HEAR THEM BARK. The only time they bark, ever, is 1. When the puppies play with our old dog Chloe, and she barks and growls at them, but this is mostly inside and during the afternoon. 2. When something startles Charlie, like someone he doesn't know entering our yard or a stray dog getting too close to our yard.

Also, Dad told me that a few years ago she complained about the neighbour on her other side's dogs. He has little terriers, always has. Apparently a little while after she complained, his dogs went 'missing' and no one ever knew what happened to them.

Gah, my dad is so furious, and so am I... If anything happens to our dogs (the old one, Chloe, or our two new pups)... My dad would be ropeable. And he never gets angry.

He wrote on the bottom of the note "They don't bark at night. You must be dreaming" which was a lot more polite than what he wanted to say. I just wonder what we do from here...I kind of want to let her know that we will be watching our dogs very carefully, but I also dont' want to accuse her of doing something to her other neighbours dogs... that would just give her fuel. If she reports this to some kind of authority, how can we prove that the dogs don't bark at night? I mean it could be a dog from any of about 4 houses. We called our back neighbour and he confirmed that he doesn't hear them barking at night. I'm just worried that this vindictive woman will get our dogs taken away or disciplined for no reason... Aargh!
I think that reply is absolutely hilarious. People are ridiculous sometimes. That's part of acreage life. You live out of town, you deal with the problems associated WITH living out of town. I would love to post my typical response to issues like that...but I don't think it's reader safe

If you can video your house, then put the camera on the dogs for a night, that should prove that they don't bark as she says. Then send her a copy and let her know that you wont take anymore accusations lightly.
Keep your dogs inside though at night and as everyone else said, document everything. Good luck! Neighbors can suck at the best of times. Mine ran over my puppies and then didnt even bther to say sorry (I think he did it on purpose).

Oh god, ran them over? That's horrible :[

We went online and registered them last ngiht, cause we hadn't got around to doing it yet... Just in case she does complain to the authorities.

I'm not sure if our video camera has good enough sound... I might have to see if we can borrow one.

Thanks everyone for your advice :]

CDT -- is the genious idea to run over the dogs??? LOL -- JUST KIDDING EVERYONE!

All of the ideas about documentation are great. The other thing you may want to consider is the neighbours health. Perhaps there is some mental deterioration or disease coming into play. Was she always like this?

I have been wondering about this neighbor for a while! I always though (correct me if im wrong) But peoples hearing gets worse with old age not better. Lol not that the dogs are barking of anything! But say they were, she never complained about them before. So I just seems odd! Perhaps somthing is wrong but in saying that if some one ran over my pets (any of them) on purpose or not on purpose, They would pay!!!!! Lol
