I HAVE the greatest sympathy with N Tate regarding dogs being left to bark all day by, as he said in his letter, “inconsiderate owners” (HAS, June 5).

I too have the same problem. Early morning, late at night, all around me, but I fear if the dog-owners read this they will think “it’s not me!”.

Where I live trying to have a peaceful day in the garden doesn’t happen!
