UWS Neighbors Upset By Constant Barking From Pet Store’s Back Yard


CBS 2 REPORTS SOME NEIGHBORS SAY THE DOGS ARE BEING VERBALLY ABUSED TOO. Reporter: THIS IS WHAT RESIDENTS NEAR 72ND STREET IN COLUMBUS AVENUE HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO FOR WEEKS. DOGS BARKING ALL DAY LONG. PROBABLY 10 TO 12 HOURS A DAY. IT’S VERY ANNOYING. Reporter: RESIDENTS WHO LIVE NEXT DOOR TELL ME IT STARTED GETTING REALLY NOISY WHEN SPOT K-9 CLUB START DOING RENOVATIONS. MORE AND MORE DOGS STARTED BEING BROUGHT OUT INTO THIS COURTYARD. NEIGHBORS FORCED TO LISTEN TO THE CONSTANT BARKING OF DOZENS OF DOGS OVER THIS FENCE. TO SEE EVERYONE FRUSTRATED. A LOT OF PEOPLE WORK FROM THEIR APARTMENTS AND IT’S VERY, VERY SAD. I ALSO SPOKE TO ONE RESIDENT OFF CAMERA WHO SAID HE FILED A 311 COMPLAINT, AND EVEN THAT DIDN’T HELP. AND MIXED IN WITH ALL THAT BARKING, PEOPLE STARTED NOTICING SOMETHING ELSE. WHAT SOUNDED LIKE AN EMPLOYEE YELLING AT THE ANIMALS. THEY SHOULDN’T BE YELLING AT THEIR DOGS. Reporter: SO I TOOK THEIR CONCERNS TO SPOT K-9 CLUB. PEOPLE ARE ALSO SAYING PEOPLE ARE YELLING VERY AGGRESSIVELY AT THE DOGS. AND YOU KIND OF HEAR THAT ON THE VIDEO THAT WE SAW. ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY TO THAT? THAT’S NOT HOW OUR STAFF IS TRAINED. THAT WAS I GUESS AN OUTLYING EVENT AND THAT PERSON IN QUESTION WILL BE RETRAINED. Reporter: GENERAL MANAGER NICOLE PATTERSON EVEN TELLING ME THAT EMPLOYEE COULD FACE TERMINATION. AS FOR THE RECENT SPIKE IN LOUD BARKING — WHAT DO YOU SAY TO PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE NOISE? NO COMMENT. Reporter: SHE DID TELL ME THE RENOVATIONS WERE ONGOING, BUT DIDN’T SAY WHEN THEY’D BE COMPLETE. BAD NEWS IF YOU LIVE NEXT DOOR. THE CITY’S PLANNING
