I have a neighbor who has 3 Rotweiler dogs that bark and howl all hours of the night and day keeping my husband and myself from getting any sleep and studying. We have asked nicely if they would do something about the problem and was told no. He also told us there is nothing we can do about this and his dogs could bark all night if they choose too. Frustrated we contacted the Humane Society, but they state they can not do anything about the problem because we do not live in the actual city limits. This is absurd because we pay city taxes. We have even gone as far as to call the police when the dogs were barking after midnight and they too say there is nothing they can do about this. I am very upset about this because no matter what room in my house I am in I can hear these dogs! What can I do? What legal rights do I have if any?

Re: Barking Dogs
Georgia has an entire section of the Code devoted to Nuisances. It's a shame the cops won't help, but maybe they maintain records showing you called. I would advise you to consult with a local attorney about seeking a restraining order.
