sample letter to neighbor about barking dog

this example letter was taken from this website:


Dear Dog Owner,

I am a nearby neighbor and I recently noticed your dog barking continuously at certain times of the day. Most often I hear the barking between ____ and ____ and occasionally at night around ____ p.m. I don’t know if you are home during these hours or if the dog only barks when you are away. Since I work at home (at night, etc.) the barking is very disturbing and disruptive for me. If you could please work to keep your dog quiet, I would appreciate it greatly. I am afraid if it continues to be disruptive for me I will need to call animal control. (Optional: insert your name and number so they can contact you).

Thank you,

Dear [recipient’s name]:

We are writing to let you know that your dog’s barking has been disrupting our ability to have peace and quiet inside our home and in our back yard. Your dog is often outside in your yard for several hours at a time, and he barks for long periods of time when he is outside. We are thus unable to quietly enjoy our own yard.

Please make the appropriate changes immediately so that your dog does not bark like this anymore. Thank you in advance for adhering to this request and for thus preventing us from having to contact the city animal agencies to address this barking situation.
