If an upstairs neighbor works odd hours, am I required to keep my dogs and small children quiet during normal daylight hours because they want silence while they are sleeping during the day? They have complained to our landlord that our dogs bark during the day -- generally for a few minutes when our garage door opens, when my husband first leaves and comes home and occasionally when they are playing with the kids. They do not bark overnight nor are left outside to bark and the barking is not excessive. They have complained about the baby crying (again during the day) for short periods of time (for instance while I'm making his food or when he doesn't want to nap). Are we free to make normal noises in our own home, or must we follow the requests of our neighbors?
