How to Handle Noisy Neighbors & Dogs

Excerpt: There is nothing more infuriating than to constantly have noise created by your neighbor or their dog(s) invade your home. It completely ruins a person’s ability to listen to music, watch a movie, read a book, meditate, study for a class, work on a speech, take a nap, and countless other things. If you are reading this because you are experiencing a noise problem right now, you know exactly what I am talking about.

Tip: This blog post includes PDF and Word versions of letters that you can send to the neighbors. Here's hoping that they will open and read them, and then apply their reading comprehension skills to solving the barking noise problem.
