Yup, three rival nightingales plus umpteen frogs all doing their best to attract a mate, or deter a rival probably makes as much background noise as a busy road ! But it's much nicer... 😁

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Unfortunately

Our fairly new next door neighbour has two dogs

TheY have dog flap to enter the garden for when she is at work, I think they are Boston terriers

We can hardly use our back garden without them going mental

Albert tries talking to them to no avail, of course they canít see him as we have high fences

Sometimes even entering our kitchen which is an extension bordering their garden is enough to start them off, and I think twice before opening the roof windows on their side

Shadow is a waste of time, he rarely uses our back garden anyway Even though the French windows out of the kitchen are always open in mild weather

I tell him bark let them know there is a large dog this side of the fence

Like us I guess heís just far too tolerant

His domain is the front where he guards

And yes he barks at passers by, but the passers by donít live outside our front gate

They canít see him, he canít see them

Maybe our secret garden Back and front is the problem

But I love my privacy

And I guess Iíll tolerate the two ď Boston Terriers ď

But sometimes I think Iíll knock on her door and Iíll tell her do you know your dogs bark constantly when you are at work

And my kitchen is becoming a no go area

But what the hell

Lob a bar of Ex-Lax over the fence Sandra. They will be frightened to breathe let alone bark.

If you get to know the new neighbours, Sandra, it might be worth asking to meet the dogs and befriend them so that they recognise your voice. Most dogs bark at "strangers" and if you could persuade the dogs that it is just you on the other side of the fence it might help to allay their fears. That is all that causes dogs to bark.
We have neighbours at the bottom of our garden with, very nervous, Springer Spaniels. We don't see them often because we have a large garden and so do they. They tend to keep the dogs near to the house using a low fence. I have spend time, when I do see them, trying to soothe their barking and encouraging them to come and meet me. It is only a post and rail fence with wire so they can see me. They are getting better
It would help if the owners did not shout at them I know they think it shows responsible dog ownership but the dogs see it as "joining in".

Of course you could look on them as "advance guard" dogs!?
