Our neighbours have a huge dog mastiff or something. When we first bought our house the fence was falling down at the back (Dd was crawling stage I was pregnant I felt unsafe about there dog). Every time I waLk outside it barks and lunges at the fence. So we replaced it. They 'couldn't afford it'. Fair enough I was the one who felt unsafe. But everyday there dog barks constantly and jumps on the fence it's now becoming wonky again! (I'm more ****ed off about the barking!). They are home. She has two older children and a child same age as DS. The dog sits outside all day. I was so stressed tonight trying get kids to sleep I ended up giving it one of my dogs bones (yes I know not good idea in case diet problems).
But do I call RSPCA or what? Last time I called council they said they won't do anything until the dog is in my yard. I'm so terrified of it. Half its body fits over our 8foot fence 😳

Normally council follow up on barking dog complaints if they get more than 1 neighbour complaining.
I'd get my hubby to go and talk to the neighbours. If they didn't do anything I'd get the neighbours on board to make complaints.

Yup in the first instance, in the interests of being neighbourly, I'd speak to the neighbours and give them an opportunity to fix the issue. If that doesn't work, definitely council.

Thank you I googled the council thing it says to keep a diary of barking :/ ugh! I'm going to drop a letter off to them because DH isn't home he's interstate. I get so stressed out especially when the kids are meant to go to sleep and the dogs are barking! Dd asks what's that noise I say just the dog barking it's ok you can sleep.

Yes, pop a letter in their mailbox Luv (make sure you date it and keep a copy of it if you can), then phone the council if nothing changes.
Poor thing sounds bored out of its brain having to sit outside all day not being taken for a walk etc!! Don't know it that's against the law (should be though IMO)?? But if they were chaining it up all day or not feeding it properly etc, then yes, I'd be calling the RSPCA.
You still could for a bit of advice??

It just annoys me I wonder if it's a 'guard' dog I live in a not so great area

I've reported people to RSPCA before for chaining a dog up 24/7. Keeping a dog locked in a yard all day and night is the same thing IMO, but I'm a bit over the top when it comes to dogs!
