Dogs’ barking worse than any jet’s roar | Letter

Editor,

I would prefer to listen to our Navy jets than dogs barking.

This is a reminder to dog owners in the city of Oak Harbor that school nights and work nights are quiet time.

Please have the common sense and respect to control and stop your dogs from barking.

My home is surrounded by five other homes, and there are 12 dogs combined in those homes.

I have owned many dogs in the past and would not let them bark when they were put outside.

I’m not sure what the city ordinance is, but between the hours of 9 p.m. and 8 a.m., your dogs should not be left alone to continuously bark without you putting a stop to it.

Please open your ears and think of others trying to sleep.
