No dog lover would want to muzzle a dog just for barking in its owner's garden. All dogs bark irrespective of the breed. Solutions to the writer's problem would be to a) move house or b) go into an old folks home where dogs are not allowed, thus alleviating the problem.

SIR - With regard to the letter in last week's Comet regarding dog barking and the annoyance this causes to a neighbourhood. My sympathies go to the writer as we too suffer from incessant barking, morning, noon and night. Appeals to the owners of these animals to curb the noise are to no avail! Apparently they suffer from deafness!

We are also very concerned about the use of the greenswards in this road which, along with our hedges, are grown for privacy. Owners deliberately encourage their animals to use them as toilet areas.

It is not impossible to train dogs and cats to use their own garden areas when seeing to the needs of nature. The trouble lies with irresponsible and non-caring owners, who neither have the time nor the inclination to train their wretched animals. Why have them in the first place?
