Any way to keep your neighbors ankle biters from yapping all day.

Just got back from a weekend trip and the people next to us had 3 little dogs that did nothing but bark the whole weekend. Asked them nicely if they could keep their little heard noise level down but they seemed to think that they were the only people in the campground. So does anyone have a solution for those who seem to think it is fine to let their dogs yap for hours at a time? Think from now on i'll bring my boom box and just blast some ac/dc their way until they get the hint

You needed to report them.......and if still barking......report them again, and if barking from inside.....report them again and again, till the owner of the property tells them to keep them quite or leave! Barking dogs are like mean people......they suck!

Yup. You have to get the park management involved. There's nothing the owners can do or they wouldn't be barking so it's useless to complain to them.

Only had that trouble once. I picked up a "Bark Off" at Wally World. It's an electronic device that sends out a high pitched sound that only the dogs can hear and they don't like. In a very short time you could hear the dog at the next site that was tied outside with no one around that had been constantly barking start changing up. He would get a 1/2 bark out then a little yelp like sound. Within 30 minutes it was quiet! I left it sitting outside the trailer next to the tire 3 more days until they left. Not another bark was heard!

Parks have rules for everyone to follow. Pets are on the list and barking or agressive dogs will be asked to leave. Management and the police have the obligation to enforce the printed rules. If there are no printed rules find a new campground to protect your sanity and provide peace and quiet.

Getting management involved is the best thing to do. Most parks have a rule about barking dogs. Make them enforce it.

We have talked about the barking dog's, now what do you think the owners problem is, sitting there , listening to them barking, in a public place, and doing nothing
Dog's should be like kids(the way I was raised) seen and not heard! Dog's and kid's are just as smart as their owner's

It's almost im[pssoble to keep those yappers quiet and why should you have to spend your money to do so.

They only yap because the owners don't want to train them not to do so. Dogs are like kids, you gotta train them. The owners are as bad as the dogs if they don't.

I Have Two Non-

Yappers, I can't stand any type dog barking and barking. Yes ours are trained and are reminded when they do bark. No barking in the MH and no barking while outside.
I am not sure which bothers me more the dogs barking or the rugrats high pitched squeals from 5 sites over.
Owners lets get on the wagon and start training BOTH !!!

I like the AC/DC aspect. I do have a boombox on board.
Enjoy the first long weekend and remember the ones that gave there life's.

Suppose to be a nice weekend at least here in Minn. Get out and Enjoy yourself,
JMO, Tim

Well... teaching the little rugrats to use an inside voice is pretty difficult when you are in the great outdoors... especially when they have to yell over the barkers....Most dogs bark for a reason. Finding the reason, stops the barking. If they are barking at you... get to know them so you aren't 'that stranger I need to alert for' any longer.

I don't agree with your thinking here, if dog's are barking all the time.....they have not been brought up right, maybe being ignored by their owner's.......I do not have to introduce myself to your dog in the campsite next to me for him to quit barking! I would think if a dog is barking and I can hear it.....why can't the owner????? and why can't he do something about it! Oh wait, maybe he is not home to correct his best friend and teach him some manors.........The highlighted above is the owners job! Not mineAs alway's.....Man's best friend is just as smart as his owner

I have a 3 year old Maltese/Yorkie or Morkie, Lily. Yorkies are the #1 barkers and Lily is true to form. She is also VERY protective. Right now she's sitting at the window wanting to bark at something she sees outside. I have taught her to "use her inside voice" and she reduces the ear splitting barking to a low, deep growl followed by a quiet, "woof".

I prefer to boondock vs campgrounds because Lily feels she needs to protect me from all of those strange people and noises. We are in Yuma, AZ and must have electric, so campground it is this week.

Even the worst of the yappers can be taught to reduce their volume. It takes consistency. Barking in the MH is never supposed to be loud unless someone knocks on the door.

I have left and come back quietly to see if Lily barks when I'm gone. I've never heard her bark and I have asked the neighbors if they have heard her and they always say no. I think it's her overgrown protection instinct that is the root of her yapping.

Regarding kids -- I'd suggest adult only parks if kid noise bothers you. Outside running and playing is where kids need to be. Not inside playing video games. JMO
