  • If it's outside, get a motion sensor sprinkler. People usually use it for deer, but I've learned it works great for neighbor dogs too.

  • call the local police station to see what the quiet hours and noise laws are. Usually there is at least a respect your neighbors type thing where animal control or the police will stop by and tell them that they have had complaints and need to get control of the barking. a water hose works well too ;)

  • I heard on the news that there is a 10 minute barking law in effect. They can actually get a ticket for a dog that barks consistently or for more than 10 minutes at a time. I don't know if this would apply to your situation or not.

  • Call animal control, or code enforcement. Otherwise you may want to invest in a bb gun lol

  • we started to get fine notices for our dog barking during the day. so i know you can talk to the police about it. they will send them notices. we had to get rid of our dog cause the bark collar didn't work.

  • Some people that have nonstop barking dogs have them debarked.
