Barking mad

It was very good to read recently it is now illegal to keep a dog  tied up or chained. This was a very cruel way to treat an animal. However, there is another instance of cruelty.

There are certain people who own dogs and have no idea how to treat them. Whenever they go out, the dog is left outside. It then proceeds to bark and bark, sometimes for hours on end.

Apart from being very thoughtless and selfish, it is very annoying to all the neighbours who have to put up with this continual noise. The dog must be very upset and unhappy to make it bark and yelp for so long.

This is very cruel. I have heard several other people saying the same thing. It seems to be all over Gozo. Is there anything that can be  done by law to put a stop to this selfish, annoying and cruel situation?
