    I wouldn't rent it. We just escaped a house surrounded by dogs who set each other off all day and night. They moved in after we rented it. It drove me insane and you're expecting? It constantly woke both of my babies up.

    We live in a complex now (pets allowed) and hear not a peep from our neighbours well cared for pets.

    The area you're looking in has low demand, you can afford to be choosy I think.

    If you find out the dog barks all the time, don't do it.

    Both neighbors now have little yappy dogs that bark all day and night. I can't even go into DS's room without setting one side off and both sides start up every time we are in the yard. Neither neighbour makes any effort to control or quieten their dog/s (one side has 2) which I don't understand. I don't get how it isn't annoying them too!!

    We have a dog too and yes, she barks. But only when she hears something she doesn't like. Thankfully these other dogs rarely set her off, but after 12 months of it, I now hate the neighbors and their yappy cr@ppy little dogs

    It's really impossible to say wether or not the dog is an incessant barker having just been there once. But, one thing I do know is that barking dogs drive me freaking mental!

    You don't hear it after a few days, we almost didn't buy our house because next door have hens and a rooster. After 2-3 days, I didn't hear it anymore, doesn't disturb DD's naps at all.

    I've only ever heard them when I've been outside, but when I'm inside

    Barking dogs annoy me, but they are everywhere so I wouldn't not rent a house because of one. You might rent a house elsewhere only to find that a nearby property has a barking dog too (who wasn't barking during your inspection), or someone moves in next door with a barking dog, or someone nearby buys a dog during the term of the lease. It wouldn't be a deciding factor for me.

    I would, but depending on the barking and type of dog.

    If it's a stock guardian breed, mastiff or working line, I would expect barking. Their job is to guard their family's territory, and they warn you not to cross the threshold by barking. They usually bark a few times, and when you show no signs of intruding, they leave it.

    If it's that neglected-terrier yip-yip-yip-yip-yip, I wouldn't get the house. The owners aren't likely to pick up their act anytime soon and undertake training or discipline.

    I have neighbours who love my dog because we used to have a few rough teenagers lurking....until they tried to climb the 6 foot fence, my Dane flopped her head over the top and woofed at them...no more teens!

    My dog doesn't bark, as she's trained not to unless I'm there and alone. And then it's only when she hears a noise that's disturbing; the gate hinges creaking, the door being knocked on, a loud car going past the house.

    Some people would say she barks too much, because it's a loud, booming bark, but the neighbours say they don't even notice it.

    Can't stand barking dogs. Especially "yappy dogs" I feel sorry for them tho, they must be SO bored to bark all the time.

    Can you drive back to the house and see if they still bark all the time?

    It would definitely be worth investigating. Ask the neighbours and find out. I wouldn't move in there if there is a dog that barks a lot. We have two 'yapping' dogs next door and they constantly bark as soon as they are outside! I love dogs, but it is annoying to have to listen to that all the time. Our other neighbour has a dog that we hardly ever hear.

    It's not a little yappy dog - it is a huge outdoor dog. I'm not good with dog breeds. Dark brown with dark grey face/legs/ears.
    For me, children and dogs aren't even on the same page. If a child is noisy in a residential area, the parents should try to reduce it but it can't always be done. If a dog is barking so much that it would require an electric shock then that is the responsibility of the dog owners to do something if it's in a residential area. If it was me, I'd be embarrassed about the trouble my dog was causing to the neighborhood, just as I am truly sorry for the neighbors and embarrassed if my son throws a tantrum during the day. anyway I'm going to ask the other neighbors today then decide.
