View Full Version : Barking nuisance fee?

04-09-2010, 11:15 PM
Go ahead and laugh! I trimmed bushes in a backyard today. At the home next door bordering this property with a (6 ft) picket ear fence, the neighbor's collie type sheep dog barked like crazy (at me) for a good solid hour. I assume the pet owner went off and left his dog outside to destroy the tranquility of a nice peaceful neighborhood.

This seems to be common place everywhere around here...go to work, leave your bored mutt outside to bark at every noise it hears! I recently spend all day in a client's backyard working, one of them small little mutts was left outside and this dog barked at me ALL the freakin day long. About drove me crazy :hammerhead:

So, I'm thinking about charging a nuisance fee because it is nerve racking. Could call the cops but the dog's idiot owner is off at work who knows where.

Anybody have this similar problem? Your solution? Thanks.

I love dogs. throw'em a pigs ear and work that into your estimate, otherwise turn up the tunes and do yer jobe.
