Piezos for dogs

Anyone have any success with silencing dogs or making they act like utter lunatics?

I have a dog hoarder neighbor who never walks her dogs, refuses to get a real fence so they can't see to the street, and I think is a mentally ill alcoholic.

Naturally, the dogs bark at literally everything that moves.

>inb4 talk to your neighbor.
did that, she still has done literally nothing.

>inb4 talk to the town
did that, they say she's violating noise ordinance, call non emerg police.
If I start doing that, I want the dogs to be acting like complete nutcases when they arrive.

Anyway, I'm dealing with an exceptional neighbor, I just want to effect the problem one way or another, with silence or entertainment.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I was considering anti freeze for a while, but she'll just get more dogs.

    That's an idea tho.

    Dog trainer/vet tech here, it’s possible to “shhh!” And toss a treat over whenever they listen
    Or toss treats whenever they’re quiet in general
    Toss in complete opposite directions so they don’t kill each other

    Or maybe that can be a plan B?

    Also dog hoarding is a real thing and animal control can definitely step in and take her dogs away so consider calling them first

      Yeah, I wouldn't piss on this woman if she was on fire at this point. It's highly unlikely I start trying to train her dogs over a fence.

      Maybe put something they are scared of in front of the house, like a huge bear statue?

      I was also considering this connected to a high wattage piezo tweeter in a bird house, and point it towards the dogs: https://thibmaek.com/posts/detecting-sound-level-using-esp8266-and-esphome

        Are they small dogs? The bear will 100% make them bark more

        You’d have better luck throwing antlers/shins over if they’re big dogs so they stfu

          German shepherd, some kind of Westy and now a Chihuahua. Her mother moved out and now it's 3 instead of 5, but the shepherd is the worst offender, because it should be running 20 miles a day. When it starts barking, the rest follow suit.

    Put one of the realistic animal toys, like a cat/rabbit in front of the house, they'll go insane barking at that stuff. Or you can kill the dogs, it's less work.

    Get hold of a portable digital recorder with a quality microphone.
    An alternative is an audio interface for your PC/laptop
    Over the course of a few days make many recordings of the barking. It's important to get up close to the bark to capture the early impulse and substance of the bark. You don't want to record the ambient sound of the area that the dog is in. Be prepared to experiment with the microphone placement (use a gap or hole in fence,use a boom/stand or hidey hole)
    From how you have described the situation you will not be short of opportunities to capture good recordings.

    Use an editor such as audacity etc to make a file that can be played back through a portable device and amplifier/boom box etc.

    The key to success is to have a large range of barking samples. Humans will quickly recognise the same small pool of samples and the game will be up in no time. Listen to the difference timings and qualities of the barks listen to the difference in cadence.
    Use a hidden speaker ( in a tree, letterbox,compost pile,under eaves,hidden in vent...) speaker does not need to be big or over bassy. When you edit the recordings you want to roll off anything below about 100hertz anyway.

    Play the recordings at a strategic time to maximise the likelihood of pissing off all your other neighbours. Late at night is good. There's nothing like ruining people's liesure time. Sounds like you won't get under her skin. You will have more success if you 1.piss off the neighbourhood and 2. Are able to send her dogs insane by confusing them with their own barks.
    If you are handy with digital audio production you can always use a sampler and keyboard to playback the barks arbitrarily. The sky is the limit if you know your way around a DAW.
    Your welcome.

      I would probably just need a shotgun mic setup for this. I have audacity/raptor/Ableton live.

      Great idea. I may look into this one.

    I rigged a piezo buzzer with a 433 mhz remote control relay pointed straight at the neighbors yard. Dog barks I push button they stop. In two weeks the barking has stopped. The relay, buzzer are 12v powered by an old wall wart plugged in on the deck by the slider.

      Do you think these would be effective through a fence, or better line of sight?

      Notice the groove this dog makes in her stucco. Sadly, this is the future of most women today. Divorced, living in a house that's falling apart, and doing the peanut butter trick with a German shepherd.

        These buzzers use very little juice. I forgot the amp draw but its low enough to wire multiple buzzers depending on the wall wart. They call them buzzers but they emit a very loud high freq.

        Stucco? Is that the neighbors on the other side? Your windows need some tlc, ser. Strip and paint.

        I don't see the groove but then this readchan client only has limited image pinch zoom.

        > dog hoarding
        I guess, as anon pointed out childless females going nuts with their furbabies after/during their hormonal rush and dropoff afterwards.

        A) Females are nuts anyways
        B) They get their hormonal rush at 35, which men have already dealt with.
        C) They should not be trusted to live alone, or be the primary (only) parent to raise children. Unless they are widows and had a good man.

          Notice the giant dog on the other side jumping and hitting the house? That's hers.

          That's a South facing alum casing for a bathroom window that never gets opened. I just had all my windows done and no one can see that one but her, unlikely I ever do anything with it.

      Pretty much every dating profile..."Proud dog mom of two! I love wine! Where's my cabana boy?"

      The neighbor literally has a "where's my cabana boy?" Outdoor pillow. I'm sure she was a dish 30 something years ago, now she's invisible to the world and men and her only comforts are booze and dog attention.

    Build an electronic dog whistle, hook it up to a tractor battery and let it run for a week. Either the dogs will bark themselves hoarse (good) or one of your neighbors will finally snap and shoot the dogs (better) or the owner (excellent).

              These things are basically the same alarms that are installed in fire alarms in newer buildings, so any long term exposure will cause that, but it's not like I've used them for any meaningful amount of time indoors.

              I bought an HF ammo box for 3 bucks and mounted the buzzers in there with some hot snot and and put binding posts on.

              I'm going to fill the box up with rocks so it stays in place and put it behind a shrub, and run the 12v supply from inside the house, that way if anyone takes it, I'm out a whole 6 bucks.

                I'm sure they provide an ultra sound frequency as well, but it's quite audible to humans, and loud. this solution is not your "your neighbor won't know that you're annoyed by their dog" nonsense from amazon. They will be annoyed as well, and that's half the fun.

                It's locked and loaded, I haven't had a chance to test it on the dog, but if this thing isn't affected by these, the dog is likely deaf or just the most obstinate dog to ever exist. I don't want to be anywhere near it.

          Everything is set up, and I did a quick test, but I am calling the cop I dealt with when she rang them on my fence installer for one last ditch "right thing" effort so when she starts calling the cops on me they at least know the situation I'm dealing with./ they are getting into, and are on my side and hopefully ticket her in the process.

          Long story short, she installed 10 feet of fencing a foot into my property, I got a permit for a fence, she broke my balls and fence contractor's balls every step of the way for 8 weeks and then called the police on my contractor after failing to pay him to reinstall her shitty fence.

          I'l have results and video on this fairly soon.

    Mate I don't have any good advice but I just wanna say I empathise.

    I used to have a neighbour, an old lady, who's dogs were barking all day, everyday. Actually it wasn't her dogs, but her daughter's, who just dumped them there while she was at work.

    And when I say the barking was "all day, everyday" I mean ALL day, EVERYday! Shit used to start at 0700 in the morning, and end at 1900 in the evening.

    Now, I got lucky and the wench eventually died and there havn't been any dogs barking there since. Like I said, I don't have any good advice but I do empathise and I just wanted to vent because I remember being so bloody frustrated about this. Cheers

    All you'll do is get people pissed with you and/or catch criminal charges. The problem neighbor would just replace the dead dogs ad infinitum.
    Your only viable options are either the piezo idea that OP's considering, or suing the neighbor and seeking an injunction against her barring her from owning pets.
