Actually, we don’t have a problem with barking dogs and we have at least four 
in a small space. When someone gets a new dog, they will warn people that it 
might bark at first — they are normally rescue dogs. 

A neighbor with two dogs moved in next to me. They barked for 2-3 weeks when I 
passed the door but not after that.

Noise is not a given, nor are barking dogs.
