Today, my fiancé and I moved into a new home a few houses away from our previous one. We were excited about not hearing our roommate's dog howling non-stop anymore. We can hear him from the new house. Very clearly. FML

OP: Um, really? You never made sure that you could NOT hear the dog barking BEFORE you bought your new house? YDI....

If it was only a couple houses away how would that make the howl stop?

Show it anyway

Or they love the neighborhood they're in and wanted to stay...

Have you ever thought of replacing the Windows or the insulation within the walls to reduce the sound rather than moving? Making such a large financial decision over the sound of a dog is kinda dumb... YDI

I imagine the dog wasn't the reason for the move, but they were hoping it would be a bonus to no longer hear him.

If you can hear it, so can the other neighbours. if it is a nuisance for everyone, your now ex roommate can be reported. Or maybe you just miss the dog. Google Phantom phone ring.

Your username gave me a heart attack

Most places have barking dog ordinances which compels owners to end the nuisance.

Oh Americans and your wooden houses

You can call in a noise complaint to the non-emergency number of your local police though.

A few houses away, that doesn't sound like it would make a big difference
