carolinabelle :  This is a great suggestion just in general! You never know when there are going to be people honking, sirens, neighbors having a BBQ, whatever. Maybe I’ve lived in the city too long but I *always* have white noise in my bedroom!

PaperQueen :  I think you must have been blessed with some easy sleeping newborns. Mine slept through nothing.

manylovesbee1 :  yes! She shouldn’t HAVE to block out neighbor dog noises, but better to control what you can versus hoping they listen to a letter or AC does anything about it. I can’t sleep without it now

carolinabelle :  No, mine weren’t good sleepers, but after they were asleep, I could vacuum or do things around the house.  A dog barking outside wouldn’t have woken them as newborns.

daniellemc :  Do you know for sure that the fence belongs to you? Otherwise, you could be starting real trouble with your neighbors if you remove a fence that they helped pay for even if it is on the property line. I would ask first.

You certainly could build another taller fence on your own property.

daniellemc :  this is animal cruelty , the dogs are probably barking because they are freezing to death. I would call the aspca or local police station as an annoymus caller and report to them the dogs are being left out in very cold temperatures for extended periods of time and aren’t being cared for properly. They will be there the next day. Do not put the letter in the mail because if you need to take extra measures they will know it was you that reported them.

daniellemc :  Don’t remove the fence. Just build yours next to it, that way you’ll be sure you are on your property only.

and if it’s only 4ft, that might be the rules in your area. ie, our front fence can only be 3ft, but side and back fences can be 6ft.

Did you get a survey of your property when you bought the property? 

In our city, you are not allowed to have two fences back to back so you have to work with your neighbor if you both want a fence. I would start checking into that now so you don’t run into roadblocks once the weather warms up.
