On a serious note, buy a dog whistle, it causes a high pitch noise, as a result dogs stop barking.

wtf is with dogs barking for hours on end at nothing?

Yes, it is common in the Polish countryside.

You are lucky you don`t need to ride a bike through villages at night coming back from work like my wife`s rural cousin. :):):):)

Poles love dogs, simple!

The constantly barking dogs are the main reason I'm leaving this country for good. Most people from my country simply don't understand that not everybody wants to hear their ******* pieces of **** the whole time.

You're leaving Poland because the dogs bark too much? Wow, I've heard it all now. Fyi, dogs bark in every country, not just Poland, you tool.

No actually - there are noise abatement laws throughout the civilised countries of the EU, where the owner gets busted, and if the dog persists, it, and not the owner unfortunately - can be destroyed.

As you probably well know; but we couldn't possibly have a wonderful country like Poland attempting to improve at all, could we?

Idiot.

Where I lived before had a dog barking much of the day and many evenings too. Very common, even on supposedly good estates. Barking for hours at a time, no one seems to mind. I politely asked for some quiet once and was promised some, but sadly that was an empty promise. Didn't have the strength to argue or complain, so just moved. One very big advantage of renting.

CalmIt: Have you ever been abroad in some of the civilised countries? Check the Netherlands. Check some big cities there like Rotterdam, Dordrecht, Amsterdam or whatever. Just check it. Then post your opinions.

Retard.

Dogs in Poland (Warsaw anyway) are the topic of much discussion, disagreement and arguments in apartment buildings, some very much justified and some not.

You wouldn't want to live near my two Alsatians....Szarik and Freya They could be in the Olympic barking team for any country and win gold. But it bothers no-one we are in the middle of nowhere and our nearest neighbour said that since we moved here with our dogs, they have lost a lot less chickens etc to foxes that don't dare come near and the wild boar stay away and don't dig up the tracks as much. They have even learned to howl!!! like wolves. We just got used to it and think of it as keeping us safe.

Fair enough Kamaz - but for those of us who live in flats it's an absolute no-go and then some. And I agree with the other posters that the Polish village scene is completely ruined by incessant barking at the slightest provocation - when a fallen leaf rustles in the wind.

People keep dogs outside even when they have nothing worth stealing :) Why their dogs are not taken from them because of cruelty I have no idea........ anyway - on the (extremely) rare occasion that my dog barks I take away his toys.

Dougpol, I would hate to live in a flat with someone nearby with dogs barking...or some mad Bob Marley fan playing music all hours??? or a mad bloke who is learning to play the bag pipes!!! But in a village everyone has a dog.......I do feel for the poor little things on a 1 metre chain with just a box to live in all it's life and only fed on grain or bread...soaked in gravy if it is a really lucky dog....just as we turn into our lane there is a little dog that has learned to upturn it,s food bowl and sit on it when it is really cold. There are laws against this of course.....but things will change slowly here....there are also other mad things to put up with.....our Cockerel 'Stan' (I think he is Stan 4 - 4th Cockerel...others went in the pot and tasty they were!!) The other morning I woke early just after 5, I went out onto the balcony for a bit of fresh air!!!! and there he was....in the hen house, crowing his heart out??? not a glimmer of light yet.......he is tasking me!!! his son 'Stan 5' is ready to take over.....the pot beckons.

Wait for a while Kamaz - let him grow further - there is a pub in St Albans in England called "The Giant Cock" :)

And I was under the sad mis-apprehension that you lucky people in the village get attached to your animals...... Don't think I was going all anti-village on you :) I too would live in the countryside if I only could.

What's with the internet connection there though? My dog loves looking at labrador prn.

Why do dogs in Poland bark so much?



In my travels to UK and further, either country or city environment, its hard not to see that dogs in Poland seem a lot more vocal. If I'm out for an evening walk in PL always within an earshot there is barking dog. Often more than one. Most would agree meeting a dog that barks a lot in uk is most rare. I struggle to think what to put it down to..

Villagers' ignorance? Yes - I think that covers it.

anyway - on the (extremely) rare occasion that my dog barks (incessantly) I take away his toys.

I said the same thing to my neighbor about his dog that barked all day and night and just wouldn't shut the F - up.

I think it just like hearing himself bark.
Realizing it was such an obnoxious annoyance to the neighborhood he finally put it out of it's misery understanding that the dog was very disturbed with emotional problems that couldn't be corrected.

Made for a much more pleasant and relaxing neighborhood.

In Poland barking dogs are the norm especially in smaller towns plus they dont even chain or put leeshes on their dogs there and they threaten walking by people all the time. Lol nice country huh?

Why do dogs in Poland bark so much?

Simple. They realise they are on a contract hire with their human owners to protect the house and family against intruders, either human or bestial. So, it is normal for them to carry out their duties the best they can, primarily by barking, then biting.

Not normal at all.
Guard dogs in Britain only bark or bite when there is a danger.
Too many dog owners in Poland do not have a clue how to train dogs and that is one of the things that annoys me most about Poland.

Ignorant dog owners who let their dogs bark all day and night.....

Coz they are lazy. Barking when THERE ALREADY is some danger is useless. Dog`s role has always been to WARN about the danger so that a human could take proper action in time. That`s what Polish dogs do - they still stick to ancient traditions which go back to prehistoric times. British dogs have lost those primordial instincts.

Ignorant dog owners who let their dogs bark all day and night.....

That is called the freedom of bark. Poles are freedom oriented people.

bark all day and night at any sound

Yes, exactly, you never know what various sounds may entail. But do not overlook another important trait - dogs also react to smells. So they can bark after smelling sth strange.
