a dog barking and the owners doing nothing about it can be rather anoying,
especially when it wakes you very early on a sunday mornings. :(
you get up,and the dog shuts up.
now this has been an on going thing,and i have spoken to the owner,who i feel
is doing this to annoy,not only me but others aswell.This problem is not the dogs,as he just has not been trained.
i wonder about these sonic things that are on the market these days,
i don't want to hurt the dog,, it's not his fault.
would something like this work do you think.
opinions would be great.
thank you. :) :(

Fortunately I haven't experienced any neighbours with barking dogs, but I can understand how much of a strain it must become.

I see there are devices on the market which emit an ultrasonic sound only when the dog barks, which distracts the dog and stops it from barking. I'm not sure how much they cost, but a quick Google search gave me results of 60 to 70

Get a air raid horn. When the dog barks sound the horn.

In all seriousness have you had a face to face talk with the guy explaining your lack of sleep due to his animal? I can imagine how bad this must be but i guess we can look at the positive.. you dont live next to a train

hmmm
well i have seen some on ebay,and they do range in price.
i have in the past diplomatically(sp)suggested perhaps "clicker training"
however it has fallen on blocked ears.
i can hear the dog through my walls,it's a large dog too.
it just really annoys me that people make no attempt to train their animals at all.
i guess i just get a little angry,because when we had dogs,they were always taught to
be quiet at the command of a hand signal.
i wouldn't mind if it was hard to do,but it's really not.
positive treats,and the dogs lap it up :) and it's fun to teach them.

well i have bought an ultra sonic pet trainer,seems to be working too.
press the button for no longer than two seconds,and he is responding.
amazing that the owners have not bothered with such a simple answer.

I was wondering how you were getting on, I'm glad to hear it's having an effect.

Was it very expensive?
