I do not know my neighbors. I have never seen them. But either they just got a new yappy dog, or I just got new neighbors who happen to have a yappy dog. I imagine it’s the former.
I can hear the yappy dog all the time. Sometimes they take him to a room where I cannot hear him. I know this, because if I am inside I cannot hear him, but when I walk outside I CAN hear him, so he’s in a room facing away from my apartment. Yay.
Yappy dog likes to traipse around outside of my door in the wee hours of the weekend mornings. In and out. In and out. Yapyapyapyapyapyap. It is non stop. Sometimes they literally have him in our lobby, inches from my door, and sometimes in a room just inside their door. For hours. I can hear this in from my dark, dark bedroom. When I come in the building he can hear me at the door and freaks out with the yapping and scratching.
This has been ongoing for a week. I thought, maybe it’s a new dog, maybe I will give them a couple of days for the dog to chill out in his new place. But a week? Oh no, this must stop.
Seeing as I don’t know my neighbors, what is the best way to approach this, before I knock on their door at 7am on Sat screaming, “I will drown your hellhound if you do not make him stop with the yapping.”
