Next doors dogs are only guaranteed to be quiet if they have a bone. Obviously they cannot have a bone all the time. They are foxhound x lab they don't really play. They watch my dogs over the fence and occasionally have a play fight but spend the rest of the time barking at my cat. I need some suggestions because I can't put in a complaint about the collie over the road until me and next door make sure our dogs are quiet. Mine aren't bad, I do bring them in every time they bark at something so they rarely have a barking session.
