Selfish dog owners

Dog owners who let their pets out knowing that they will bark are being selfish and disrespectful. A dog in my neighborhood barks loudly every time he is let out, starting at 6:30 a.m.

I live a block away, and the barking wakes my family and me each morning and disturbs me throughout the day and into the night. I didn’t ask for a wake-up call! If I honked my car horn or sent my kids out in our backyard to yell and scream for five minutes every few hours, I’m sure people would call the police.

Dog owners, please be responsible for your pet and considerate of your neighbors. Your dog isn’t the problem; you are.
