We had this problem. Our neighbors dog barked constantly. They put him in the garage at night, but let him out real early in the mornings. I didn't realize a dog could bark that much and everyone commented on it when they were here. We couldnt even use our back yard because he would be right at the fence barking loudly. It was awful. I was about to buy the mounted thing, but thank goodness, they moved!

The Super Bark device is a joke. It didn't work and was a waste of money.

Talking to the owner and using a shock collar did work. I bought the collar and told the owner I would only use it after 10 minutes of continuous barking. After 3 hits one day the mutt was silenced.

On the owner I presume?

Nope, the dog. Read my post - it was very clear.

I'd bet using it on the owner would be more fun though! And emotionally satisfying as well....

My neighbors dog drove me crazy for 3 months. I didn't know what to do. Everywhere I turned, it is recommended that you contact the dog owner before contacting animal control.

This can be very stressful to approach the neighbor. Moderator cut: not allowed
I have done a lot of research, nuisance dog barking is a social issue. Moderator cut: not allowed This site will address the issues that nuisance dog barking causes on a social level. The burden of proof is on the victim of nuisance dog barking. Controlling nuisance dog barking should be the responsibility of the dog owner.

There is a revenue stream here for local government. Animal Control Officers should be on-duty (or on-call) 24/7. Victims of nuisance dog barking should be able to file a complaint with animal control whenever the neighbors dog is barking. Animal Control should be dispatched immediately. Dog owners should be fined (after maybe 1 warning) when there dog is caught barking excessively by animal control. This will change attitudes about who is responsible for controlling a dogs barking.

Hoping for a more peaceful, and quiet America!

Dog barking is a problem that many owners face but do not know how to deal with in an effective way, unfortunately. This behavior problem can be fixed, but you need patience and consistent dog training methods.

I think a big part of the reason why the dogs constantly bark is that they're bored to death and/or have separation anxiety issues. It amazes me that here in my neighborhood, that the majority of dog owners don't take their dogs out for regular walks! They seem to think that just having a big enough yard to play in is enough, but it's not. So I'm wondering why they even bother keeping dogs in the first place if they're not willing to take the time to fulfill the dogs' needs.
