I live in a shared house and the landlord's dog barks frequently. This disturbs me day and night. I was very direct with the landlord and told them the barking is interfering with my ability to do work and I expect something to be done about it. The landlord was very direct with me and said they won't be doing anything about it. In my opinion the barking is excessive enough that it's illegal.
I would like to find out if the neighbors can hear the barking and if they are affected by it. I do not know the neighbors (I only said hi to them in passing a couple times). How can I go about this without coming across as I'm trying to cause trouble, and how can I get their honest opinion?
Ideally it would help if they can submit complaints to the city too, or even testify regarding the noise. But if the dogs barking isn't loud enough to be heard out of the house I would like to know that too.
I have a very difficult time with people who I disagree with on a fundamental level. I cannot understand how my landlord could think it's fair to not control her dog, and she is like this in other situations as well.
