My neighbours have a dog which is kept outside in a little kennel type thing which is tiny and its not allowed in the house. I've only ever seen them take it for a walk a handful of times in the 18 ish months they've had it.
It's a spaniel type dog which I'm sure needs quite a bit of exercise. They don't even let it out of the kennel to run around the back garden. It is always barking, sometimes for hours on end.
I'm tempted to phone the RSPCA but I'm not sure what they would do? Would they give them advice on how to look after the dog?

I would call them, maybe even say to them "i dont really know if there is anything you can do but this is the situation...". Do you know if they feed it regularly?
Yes I would call. From what you have said that dog is being neglected and that is abuse.

I would phone them too, Hopefully they will go around and take a look.
With the walks could it be that they take it out at random times of the day? I only say that as we take our dog out at like early mornings and 11pm at night so no other dogs are around and he can have a good run around without us loosing him too another dog walker... or is it just really plainly clear they don't take it out at all?

I have in the past for similar circumstances, if you google there's a 24 hour helpline it's an 0300 number or something like that.

If it has shelter and is being fed and watered you'll probably find they aren't interested. I looked into it after viewing some puppies but because they technically had their basic needs met the RSPCA didn't want to know. There's a page on their website which gives more info.
