Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

I READ with in­ter­est the let­ter in last week’s edi­tion head­lined “Dogged by dogs” and I could not

have said it bet­ter my­self.

Our story is al­most iden­ti­cal: the dis­re­spect­ful neigh­bours with not one but two dogs bark­ing at the slight­est lit­tle noise re­gard­less of the time or whether the own­ers are home or not.

More­over, it ap­pears that these peo­ple do not care what stress they are caus­ing be­cause they do not in­tend to do any­thing about it.

We filled out the forms twice, sub­mit­ted them but were told they were not ac­cu­rate enough to be used in court and that we would need a doc­tor’s cer­tifi­cate stat­ing how this prob­lem was af­fect­ing our health.

The owner told us that if the ranger both­ered him, he would be sorry.

There is ab­so­lutely no way we can win and the ex­pen­sive prod­uct, well for­get it; the dogs are bark­ing so loud the own­ers just take no no­tice or are so stupid – don’t waste your money.

The coun­cils say it is not up to them, they are fol­low­ing the “Dog Act” and in the mean­time, we suf­fer.
