"Barking dogs by the hundreds!"

A tidy street up the top of Arthur Street, great views, but spoilt by hundreds of dogs that live right across Eltham valley, that bark all hours of the day, night, and early hours of the morning. It has spoilt the place for us, and are moving out after two months of sleepless nights and frustration. Bad dog owners are frequent that leave their dogs outside all night, dont correct their behaviour, or go away and leave their dogs unattended. There is NEVER any peace and quiet, ALWAYS at leat half a dozen dogs barking across the valley. It's not a relaxing place. If you like a sleep in, or to be able to sleep through the night, then Eltham IS NOT for you. Eltham also has very limited coffee places, and costs $12.00 to get into the CBD by train. It's in a fire warning area and is also prown to flooding ( check out youtube )
