THE NEIGHBORHOOD NOISE MAKER, ALSO KNOWN AS THE BARKING DOG
Jul 2, 2015 - Some dogs bark more than others and some dogs are notorious noise-makers
This item really works on our very bossy, very vociferous German Shepherd. In fact, it works so well, this is the second Dog Master we have purchased. This one we will keep upstairs where our Shepherd likes to look for birds, squirrels and flying leaves to bark at. Nothing else worked: collars, voice reprimands, so-called noise makers that can only be heard by the dog, etc. Didn't work at all. The Dog Master DOES work for us and boy, are we glad we have it. Thank you!
So what can you do if your neighbor lets their dog bark all night, or hosts loud parties until the wee hours? If you live in a rental unit, a first line of action is alerting your landlord to the issue by forwarding her a detailed log of the disruptions by receipted delivery. Most residential leases are read to include an implied “” (in New York it is an explicit law), which requires your landlord to ensure that your living space is free of conditions detrimental to your health, your safety, or the quiet enjoyment of your unit. Landlords are especially likely to be responsible for alleviating a noise nuisance if the noise-makers are their own tenants.

Loud Noises – Some dogs will bark when loud noises or unknown objects startle them. Maybe the icemaker on the fridge made a strange noise or a lightning storm hit in the middle of the night. They will bark to make sure it isn’t something that can harm them. This type of barking can happen anywhere, not just at home.Provided to YouTube by The Orchard Enterprises

If so, check with your local code enforcement; they are illegal in some areas. Not sure if your area is one of them, but worth checking.
If this were my neighbor, I'd just have a friendly talk with him and say, "Hey, I just wanted to let you know I'm aware that you are irritated by the dogs barking. I've even started to keep track of how many times they have barked, and it's nowhere near as often or as sustained as the ear splitting noise from that device you've installed. How about a truce? You uninstall that and I'll try to bring the dogs in every time they bark in any kind of excess, if that happens. I know barking drives some people crazy, but dogs bark. That's what they do and I'm not sure what else I can do."
If he's not receptive to this, then he's a jerk. And failing the device being illegal, you might need to get some other neighbors irritated by the screeching noise to help you.Some dogs bark at everything they see and hear, a characteristic that flops like a lead balloon in an apartment or attached condominium development. Some dogs will stop barking if they cannot hear or see the interlopers. So, if Sassy is an in-the-house noisemaker, put her in the kitchen or laundry room with a crate or bed, away from windows, common walls, and hallways, and turn on a radio before leaving the house. Classical music stations may work best; they have fewer disruptions by commercials with doorbells and other noises that could trigger barking. Confine Sassy in the room with baby gates in the doorways, not by closing doors, so she doesnt panic.
