My neighbor has a small dog that barks incessantly at all hours...

Printer-friendly version


My neighbor has a small dog that barks incessantly at all hours of the night. A Korean friend wrote a note for them that I placed on my neighbor’s door.

Rough translation is “Hello. I’m sorry. Your small dog needs to shut up.”

I hope.

You need to back to your Korean friend with the letter because there are some spelling mistakes at the end of the letter.

sadly there are no laws here for noise. cops cant do anything. they can suggest but that is about it. you can pull a seinfeld episode and kidnap it but...

people here expect to be able to do whatever they want so my guess is if people cant or dont realize that a barking dog is annoying to others, they never will. really sucks. good luck.

oh, the person who posted something about grammar, are you kidding me?...lol

Sleeping pills are available here.  If it's a small dog just slip a quarter of one under the door wrapped in a piece of lotte ham every evening.  Alternately slip 5 or 6 and only have to do it once.  Make sure they don't have any small children first.

Actually, there are noise laws here.  I've seen the cops enforce them on many occasions when people complain about loud music at clubs.  Just ask anyone who attended the Daejon Rock Fest last Saturday, which was shut down by the police by noise complaints.

A barking yip dog may be another matter...

Fishstick, yes there are nuisance laws here in South Korea, which include noise and yes the police will become actively involved.

I have been advised that you will need to call out local boys in white every night for about 1 week or so and they will attend, but will get very pissed off with the dog owner, and enforce some sort of silence.

Your alternative is to offer to buy the bloody thing, drive out into the country and......... 

 Oh no, what have I said !!  Wait for the animal liberationists to come out from behind the bushes now.

I can report good news. Since leaving the note on the door, I haven't heard anymore dog noises in the middle of the night.

Your idea sounds pretty extreme. Luckily, since leaving the note on the door, I haven't heard anymore dog noises in the middle of the night.

Since leaving the note on the door, I haven't heard anymore dog noises in the middle of the night. I will keep your advice in mind, I suppose, for the future.
