I moved into a shared house where the landlord lives with us and is one of the roommates. She had some dogs that wouldn't stop barking. Generally speaking communication has not been good but for whatever reason the dogs were not in the home for about a month. Now they're back. The barking is so excessive I believe it may be illegal as it's a form of noise pollution and prevents people from quiet enjoyment. I just had a phone interview right when she brought them in the house and it really screwed me up.
She makes no effort to control the dogs and they bark for minutes on end and during the night and day.
I've been surprised when I hear barking and the dogs don't stop I assume no one is in the room to tell them to be quiet and I walk into see the owner sitting right there doing nothing.
What should I do? Should I tell her this is illegal or should I complain to the city right away? Is it fair if I ask her to communicate if/when the dogs are staying in the house?
