Hello everyone, I live in Harris county Ga, I have a 18 months GSD at home I have a neighbor keeps harassing me and my dog and I do not know what to do He said my dog barks , but we at least have two people stays home all day and my dog only barks when a stranger comes or an animal shows up on our yard But this neighbor keeps blaming my dog He came up to my front door before with a big long metal stick and told me to have my dog shut up, But he suddenly showed up, of course my dog barked! Another time I remembered was his back yard and our back yard kind connects, but some plants or trees kinda divide it He was very closed to our side, and my dog knew it and came out from the deck and barked on him, But she didn't go to his side, we have an electric fence system. And that neighbor yelled at her very loud and kept yelling" get out of here!!!!!" I was very mad, but I called lotto and took her inside And last night, I received a letter from him, he wrote control your noisy ass dog or he is going to sue us

I would look up the animal ordinances for your town. I am sure they have a nuisance barking law on the books or something similar. If you can't find one call your town health department and ask them. It is usually the health department that is in charge of animal control.
Very sorry you have to deal with a lousy neighbor. I would be very concerned for my dogs safety if I were you. Ticked off neighbors have been known to poison dogs and kill them. If I were you I would never leave her outside alone. I would take her outside to pee and stay with her and bring her back inside when she is done. I would find an alternate way to exercise her like taking her on an extra walk or two each day. I would rather be inconvenienced a little then have some nut job kill my dog. If she barks while she's in your house there is nothing he can say about it. But if she's outside and being a nuisance the law unfortunately may be on the side of your neighbor.
I did look into Harris County GA website, Code of Ordinances/Animal Control But I could not find any specified regulation regarding barking I will call the Animal Control on Monday and ask them if they have more info for me.
Lotto does not bark for no reason unless something happens. And we will not let her outside barking for more than 1-2 minutes, because my mom is at home all the time, if me or her hears her barking, we will go out to see what happens, and take her inside. And she does not bark inside the house.
