Interesting about the dogs, we have a pet door and they spend the nights inside our bedroom in their dog beds, a couple of them are in their beds - cages - kennels from 9 pm to 8 am inside in another room. At any time, the dogs will bark when anybody comes or goes inside the house - that's their job actually. We are totally concerned about not barking at night, my area is a quiet one and neighbors do not tolerate this. V must have heard some other dogs ? barking 'for hours' because that was not, could not have been our dogs. When they do bark, we never fail to get up and go to see what they are barking at. Cross my heart. We are doing house repairs right now but we keep windows open and use fans also to clear out the dead air inside. Our dogs go to the groomer for baths , sanitary treatments also . We launder their beds every few -3- days with peroxide / vinegar/ oxyclean, in fact I am sort of OCD about sanitary conditions . 4 of our dogs are Medical Service dogs and are highly trained , all are highly cared for. I was very happy that Victoria even bathed one of our dogs once. If she had mentioned any night barking, I would have been on it immediately. She came home late, exhausted, got up and left early a m. I always sleep wide awake if you understand that and I check and verify EveryThing that goes on here most especially with the dogs. If our dogs had been barking for hours, I guarantee that the police would have been called to my house. I love my neighbors but that's how they are. I find this interesting. Wish she had said something to me. Ah, well.
