Re: Pet owners in apartment blocks....
I have a similar problem, not just apartment blocks, a couple of houses away from ours has a dog which spends most the time on it's own in a small run in a back garden. The dog (a Labrador) gets regular walks and I have no doubt it is well looked after, but to me it seems to be very bored as any time I see it, it is standing on its back legs to look over the garden wall and barks very loudly at anything that moves.
While this may be good for security, it's not so good at 2 in the morning when the fox is about and the F#####g dog barks relentlessly at it for hours, (the fox usually just stares back at it), same thing happens with birds, passing cars, rabbits, sheep & anything that moves, but the prolonged sessions seem to involve the fox.
I know it's not the dogs fault, I honestly think it just wants something to do rather than look over a wall for most of it's life.
It also thinks our front garden, drive and back garden are it's toilet, but that's a whole other rant.
