Obviously vested interests but diplomacy wins the day or was that "bull shite baffles brains"?
Rattle the sabres if required as long as they are not too noisy. Good luck Ron.

Cheers, Steve.

P.S. The squeaky wheel gets the oil.

Been here since 2011 in Los Banos.
Lots of dogs in the roads. We have 3 dogs but they roam around our compound and sleep in doors.
We went shopping one morning usual thing tricycle dodging the dogs.
On the way back home no dogs to be seen ! Found out the Dog Catchers were coming !
Our neighbours have 3 dogs which run free and their son is the Barangay Kapitan ! And somehow all the dog
Owners in the Barangay knew the Dog Catchers were on their way !

Saw his assistant yesterday and asked of any progress. Reply was that they went to the property to see the residents but they in fact OWN IT, so there is nothing that can be done???? I politely asked what that has to do with it, is it not the case that they have the same community obligations if they were 'renters'???? Blank look, head scrtatch!!!
so the logic here apparently is that you can do anything you like, ie murder your wife, neighbour or whatever and it is ok but ONLY if you own the property.

No wonder I drink!!!
Blotter each complaint in The Barangay Logbook, If no resolution after 3 Summons/Meetings to resolve the issue at the Brgy level, Brgy Cpt will issue permit to file a case to enforce the law.

If you have threats to your life the Barangay is a good spot to get help with this, they will have someone camp outside your home and watch the house and treat them well they get paid very poorly, or another issue would be someone owe's you money they could be useful in getting this back.

With all that said above, to rely on the Barangay for much more such as this issue wouldn't be smart and bottom line is these are your neighbors or if in-laws they probably have family that work in the barangay and also have many barangay drinking buddies plus to bring in the barangay into your home and get into your personal life I feel would be like letting in some unsavory characters... I'll leave it at that, and don't forget the neighbors won't forgive and don't forget but smile real nice for you and will probably like to get back at you when the timing is right, so if possible put up with their issue's of dog barking, loud noise, Karaoke as best you can, sometimes I just get up and leave the home, my wife has friends in other area's and we will leave or leave for the day and go shopping and out to restaurant, if low on money I'll go for an extended bike ride with my kids.

I had this same problem years ago. During a visit to the states, I went into one of the large chain Pet Stores and all they had to recommend was one of those high pitch anti dog whistles. It didn't work.

Fast forward to now and they have these handy devices on the market. Dog Silencer™ - Ultrasonic Bark Control Stops Dog Barking Humanely

If you follow the news, recall that The Cubans caused U.S. Diplomats to depart Cuba after the Cubans allegedly used high pitched devices on the diplomats.

Lazada Philippines sells them for around 650 Pesos. Open the site & scroll down.https://www.lazada.com.ph/shop-pet-s...q=dog+silencer

ALi Express does as well.https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale...t=dog+silencer

Both will ship directly to your PI House. I prefer one that has the remote.

For as cheap as they are, one can get 10 or so .........LOL

It's about as stealth as you can do without angering anyone but the dogs.

May be the best solution ,depending on the operating range/distance coverage. Wonder if they can be made more powerful.
