Write a letter to your neighbour requesting that something be done about the dog. Include in your letter:
– Your reason for writing
– What you would like to happen
– A nice, respectful style
Dear Sir and Madame,
I am a nearby resident currently attending university. I am pursuing a degree in mathematics, and my course material is very difficult to understand. I have to spend many hours studying for exams and working through practice problems. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing barking from the dog in your house, it is very difficult for me to concentrate. I am writing to ask if there is anything you can do to help reduce the barking, especially during the later hours. It is difficult for me to sleep because of the barking. I hope that this letter does not offend you, as I am only trying to get myself some comfort at home to aid me in my studies. If you would like to further discuss this, please contact me at your convenience. I hope we can resolve this smoothly. Thank you and take care.
