Now that a lot of apartment complexes are "dog friendly", at times the complex can sound more like a kennel than anything else. If living in a first story apartment, and single/working adult, lives above, just how much noise will happen if that adult has one child or more living with them? It is stated that any kid under 12, should not be left at home alone. Whether it's at a house or in apartment, young folks outside, talking like it was 2PM, not 2AM. Actually, we've had both of the above problems, even when we had a house. In an apartment, it hasn't been an upstairs neighbor, because, for the last 10 years, we've lived in a "bungalow"/single story apartment that is attached to the end of the building we live in. But, have had dogs barking problems, both during the day and at night. One resident actually got rid of their dog or they would've had to move. One odd thing that happened a few times at the house we use to have, two large woods owls, perched on the roof at each end of the house behind us, would wake us up at 2AM with their "hooting". When things are really quiet outside, an owl's "hoot" is very loud. I end it by using a boat spotlight. Turned it on facing straight up in the sky and bring the spot down onto one of the owls. I flew off and the other followed. So, is there any annoying noises where you live, and, if so, what do you do about it?
