Don't you have any type of Code Enforcement in your locale? A simple phone call and progressive fines for repeat offenses changed my neighbors habit of ignoring the obvious. And the notification was anonymous, we're fiends to this day. I fed and watered his two dogs over the long weekend.

The breed was named after the Grand Duke of Weimar, and used as gun dogs by noblility.

Yes we do. It will be hard to stay anonymous when the County Health Department shows up filing the complaint and you are the only neighbor. That is what makes it such a rock and a hard place. And the HOA, they are totally worthless. I don't even know where my $300 per month HOA fees gets me, besides the freaking 12 pools and 10 miles biking trail which I have used neither.

Try a malamute, they are super sweet, devoted, and talk a lot. I do mean talk, not bark. They try to replicate your words as best they can. Usually they just pick up the highs and lows as well as the syllables. As an added bonus they look intimidating to know nothings.

PS They shed in an unbelievable manner.

Are you talking for lunch or dinner? Seriously, what are you talking about?

If you're gullible enough to buy a Malamute, do try to make sure it's not the alpha dog of the litter. Improperly trained or raised, they can be petulant and vicious - even reactionary biters. Not for those who have young visitors or bad attorneys.

The in-laws owned one for about 10 years. It would bark and snap at my son, who was used to our Golden, any time he ventured near it's lazy ass...it'd plop down right in his way when he came over to play (kindergartener at the time), just so it could be pissed off at him. I almost put it down. It was coddled by them, and wouldn't hesitate to bite the hand that fed it. Literally.

So, kindly step down off your intellectual high horse and STFU. My observation wasn't based on ignorance.
