what would you do....

See these 2 beautiful German shepherds....they are very majestic looking but they are about to drive us out of our mind. We can no longer hang out in our back yard nor sit on the deck because these 2 dogs bark non-stop at us. Also, can no longer play with our own dog because then they start jumping, darn near coming over the fence, like they want to tear up my Chrissy girl. She is now afraid at times to even go outside to tinkle.

They leave these dogs out all day and all evening. They put them in the garage at night because our homeowners association complained to them about breaking the noise ordinance...which is 11:00 pm to 7:00 am. But that doesn't help us at all.

tomorrow, I am buying an air horn and I'm going to blast it at them every time they bark and see if I can break them of the habit. It's sad...it's not their fault. They are not trained and really, they are not socialized at all with the family they live with. I feel bad for them but I also want to be able to enjoy my yard.

later......

You've got to do what you've got to do. I can't believe how ignorant some people are. Poor guys. They just want some attention. Good luck training them. I think it will fall in your hands.
