My neighbor's dog barked all night. I called the cops every night for a few nights and that worked. I have a dog too but I don't leave her outside all day and night. You can also call animal control. One idea I had was to blow an airhorn every time his dog woke me up, but my wife wisely talked me out of it.

When I'm feeling pissy toward the neighbors on my right, I sit on my back steps late at night, and gently open and shut my screen door. Their three dogs go nuts. If I'm really ticked off, I wait till the dogs calm down and the owners have stopped yelling at them, and do it again. Passive aggressiveness at its best. Some may think I'm being mean. Nope. Those dogs have barked at me every day for almost two years. Especially when I'm going in and out of my house. So I'm just sharing that with their owners at a prime annoyance time. Sometimes they take the dogs inside when they have had enough.
This neighbor used to spy on me. I took the branches from two fallen trees and piled them inside my fence line but close to her yard. An effective but ugly blocker. Be creative. You're playing by the rules with people who have none. I have also left my radio outside tuned to the rap station with the volume at medium low. Then I go to work. Not loud enough for a noise complaint. But these country neighbors are not getting any peace either.
Is there a thread where people are mad at their neighbors for being bad pet owners? Maybe the Mexicans to my left think I spy on them? And their dog? Anybody got a 12 foot high fence I can hide behind and not deal with anyone? Is a lack of communication the problem or a lack of communication skills?
