Do dogs suffer headaches or migraines? I think the answer to this would be yes, but I can’t find any study that proves it one way or the other. I’m not sure how you would prove it, since you can’t ask the dog how it’s doing, but to me, i would think the answer to this question would be an unequivocal yes. Except for…
We all have heard a dog or two bark on end (if you haven’t, send me a pm and tell me where you live!) I don’t understand how a dog tied up in a yard, can bark at literally nothing for hours on end and not give itself a headache.
Apparently, though, they don’t. There are a couple of dogs in my neighborhood that can bark day and night with no problem. As to this issue,
Is there any way to stop a dog that is barking? For example, is there a dog whistle one could purchase that if blown, could get the dogs to shut it down?
I’d much rather try a peaceful solution instead of calling the police for disturbing the peace violations. And I’m not into killing the dog in any way, so please don’t suggest that as an option. No bullets, no poisons. i’m looking for a clean, silent method for getting a dog to cease barking. And if it doesn’t I guess that’s the way it goes. But the owners don’t care about the animals, and i’m tired of listening to them bark.
And yes, I’ve spoken to the neighbors, as have others. Apparently there is no desire to get along here.
I would like to get the animals to quiet down without anyone knowing that anything was done externally to do it. Maybe they just matured and/or got tired of listening to themselves bark…
Any help would be appreciated, including any stories you’d like to share on how you handled a similar situation?
