After 5 years of misery, I had to buy one… I think I made a post about this a few years ago, and now, my other next-door neighbor got not only one, but TWO dogs! Every single neighbor has at least one dog, and one of them actually said, “Cheap security”. They leave their dogs outside in the rain, sometimes in freezing weather, and they’re constantly outside (to get them out of the house, since they are a nuisance)… So ANYWAY, I got the item below in the mail. I think I screwed up the string to hold it up on a tree or whatever, since the instructions say there shouldn’t be any major obstruction to the destination. I have a few stairs from the back door, and the dogs from both sides roam around there, so I put the setting to 50 feet. I’ve heard it can take a few weeks for the dogs to be trained, but I was wondering if having two would help, or does it screw things up? I’m tired of waking up at 4am… I know its not always a dog barking, but in my dream (I think) I hear a bark. I guess it could always be a dog being let out for a second, but one bark will wake me up. I have background noise, but this weather is making things worse, getting lighter, and the damn birds.
If I hear a dog bark, I might do what I did last night, and take the device and get as close as possible to them. One fear I have is having someone steal it, because this time (unlike the previous burglarly), I will … get payback. I’m losing my fucking mind. I hate having to constantly blast music or TV, which isn’t loud, since I only have TV speakers, and I want a break from noise in general. I try to read, and the barking not only distracts me, but it angers me, and then every damn lament I have about neighbors come to the forefront… I’ve been shitting blood in the last week, could be ulcers, or a million other things… And then you have two dogs across the street which just roam and start a barking orchestra.
I live in the ghetto ghetto, so we have no animal control, and police are worthless here.
