I am often surprised at the number of owners who have barking and destructive dogs. How do they manage to put up with all that noise for so long?
Perhaps after a while, we manage to turn a deaf ear to the racket the dog is making. In many instances, nothing is done about the dog barking until a neighbour complains.
Most neighbours will tolerate a great deal before actually confronting you about the problem, so you can usually be sure that if your neighbour is saying that the dog is barking a lot then the dog really is barking excessively.
Do you live next door to a barking dog? Or are you that neighbour from hell with the dog that barks all day and night?
Many barking and destructive dogs are given the label Separation Anxiety. Once a vet hears of this type of behaviour he might prescribe the latest drug Clomicalm, manufactured by Norvartis. However, this drug should only be used in combination with behavioural therapy techniques.
If you have a neighbour who will not listen to your appeals, then contact the Guardia Civil and ask for SEPRONA. You can telephone 900 101 062 or email them [email protected] They will definitely take action, which could result in big fines for the guilty owners.
Dogs not allowed on beaches in summer
While it is advisable to check with your local authority beforehand, in most areas it is against the law in Spain to allow your dog on the beach from June until the end of September. Not even dog-friendly beaches.
If you are caught expect a heavy fine.
