Unexpected things happen all the time and life can get complicated pretty quickly. Luckily, we’re here to answer questions about common legal and financial situations you may find yourself in.
Q. My neighbor’s dog barks all day. They refuse to put him inside. What can I do?
A. You can first talk to them and explain that the barking is very disturbing and distressful for you. If that fails, call the dog officer. That is the “cheapest” way out. You could go to court and get a restraining order as you do have the right to “quiet enjoyment.” But it is faster to call your local town dog officer and complain. Most towns have ordinances to this effect. Whatever you do, don’t threaten or go near the dog.
