The dog isn't outside much at all as far as I know. The important issue is can hosing someone be worthy of a citation? I know a noise complaint could be issued for the dog. There are probably a bunch of situations like these that have gotten much worse by handling it themselves.

quiet dog then no problem.
noise pollution can be very frustrating.
neighbor needs to call next door each time the dog barks more than 15 seconds.
tit for tat.

doesn't really matter even if the dog is inside. My nearest neighbors are 100+ yards away and I can hear their beasts barking/howling every morning, even though they are inside, and so am I. Yes, they are that loud. It's okay with me only because they don't complain about my roosters. And I did ask them about that to make sure it wasn't an issue with them. Your brother needs to deal with his dog before he deals with his neighbor.

Your brother should have walked over with garden snippers and cut the guy's hose.

Either way, when your brother saw the situation reaching a frustration point so bad that the neighbor was actually barking back at his dog, he should have stepped in and quieted the dog. It's common courtesy when one's dog is barking its head off to shut it up or take it back inside before the water hoses come out.

I don't know what I would've done, but it would be really tough to just walk away. This is the kind of thing that will escalate to a bad situation quickly. I think I would have called the cops, even though it was harmless water, to document it. It would definitely be a tough pill to swallow, letting the neighbor get away with that. I understand a barking dog can be very annoying, but spraying someone with water can bring unecessary consequences.

Would you have just walked away, called the cops, or just beat his arse? My brother doesn't carry a gun, so that's not an issue with this situation. I understand if he had a CHL, then leaving the situation is the only way to go.
Locate his water shut off.
Wait until 3AM.
Turn off his water.
Place a padlock on it.
Go back to bed with a smile.

Control the dog, it's not difficult and there is a whole segment of the pet care industry devoted to it.

Go to the neighbor like a man and apologize for not controlling the dog and assure him that you will do a better job of it in the future, then extend your hand and wait for him to shake it and hopefully apologize for hosing you down out of frustration.

Move on with your life.

Taking Internet polls and posting "what would you do..." is a distraction and a waste of time. Just walk over to his door and make peace...the sooner the better. Even if he is a complete lunatic an apology and an effort to control the dog is in order.

Look into a collar called the barker breaker...it worked wonders for my wife's yippie dog and only emits an ultrasonic beep. Took 20 minutes for the dog to figure it out and now all I have to do is hang a red collar (it was red) on the back door knob and she is as quiet as a mouse. $9.95 well spent.

Tell your brother to get some weed and grass killer. Wait until about 3am and write out in big bold letters I LIKE ANAL on the neighbors front lawn with the grass killer. Oh and tell him to get that dog under control. Otherwise he will end up having to move

I am no fun.

Imagine the future before you act

Go punch the guy --

guy pulls gun --

shots get fired --

someone ends up dead

Does it really matter who pulled the gun - or who ends up dead?

Sure it does - you always want to survive

But lives are changed - legal bills put you into bankruptcy

NOT WORTH IT

Your brother may be wrong to let his dog bark - but only a complete idiot escalates this situation.

"Rapist" would be good too.

Im a fan of locking gas caps. They wont know until they buy gas and then they may be in a bind.

Lets just say I HATE dogs that bark all the time. I can't honestly say it's the dogs fault; the owners have most of the blame. Dogs can be trained.
That is one of the reason I don't have a dog. Since I work all week, I never thought it fair for a dog to be home alone all week during the day. Dogs are social creatures.

"children near by"

Every time I hear that, my butthole clenches with rage.
First of all, not MY children, YOUR CHILDREN.
2nd of all, I heard curse words my entire life from every adult around me and it caused no harm at all.

Sounds like one lost his temper after being repeatedly provoked and one had a history of being a self centered prick.

I despise those self centered people who allow their animals to disturb everyone else.

IF this went down exactly as described I would have called the cops. But that is a BIG IF.

If someone comes over and sprays my dog on my property without a prior conversation and history of a problem, we already have an issue. If that same person sprays me, we have a big issue.

But somehow I doubt this is the beginning of the whole story.

It absolutely caused harm. It created someone who throws the term "butthole" around willy nilly. Good god, man. Someones children could be reading this.

I would've gone back inside, dried off, and Googled a good obedience school to send my annoying ass barking dog to.

You might be referring to the same case.

Yep... I saw a case where that is exactly what happened. They had the audio of the 911 call and clips of the video he took. He hit all the buzz phrases to cover his butt.

Yep, that guy is gonna be doing life in prison.

I'm just thinking of how quickly the childishness can escalate here making the living situation for both families intolerable or dangerous.

The only appropriate response I can think of would be for the both of them to head out in the yard in speedos and let some gay hose fight settle it. Play "Wake me up before you go-go" on the hi fi for extra points.
