I bought because of my neighbor's dog. Mounted it on a pole just over the top of my fence facing downward into the neighbors yard and set the sensitivity to max. Holy shit it worked so good. Neighbor's dog started panicking every time it barked, would shit in the house, etc. They had to start taking the dog out to pee/poop manually in their front yard.

Please note that I only did this after we confronted the neighbor no less than 5 times asking them if they could stop leaving their dog outside barking every single day from 5am to 10pm. Their response was basically 'deal with it', so i did.

They actually wrote a letter to the HOA and complained about our dog bark deterrent and they told us to remove it, but we simply wrote back and said they let their dog bark 15+ hours a day and it was in our yard and we'd be happy to remove it if they'd actually take care of their dog. Never heard anything again.

The device actually broke after about 2-3 years but their dog hasn't barked since. He doesn't even go in the back yard anymore.

Honestly, I am weary to post this in that many of you may say this in inhumane, but I think it is an immediate solution.

My family has 4 chihuahas who act very much like the dogs you've described(one barks, they all bark). We bought one of these bark boxes that emits a high pitch sound inaudible to humans when it senses the dogs bark. This sound distracts the dog so that they stop barking. We only had to actually turn it on a handful of times before they got the message that it wasn't cool to bark when it was night time. It was incredibly effective, much to my surprise. I would think if you set one of these on your side of the fence and turned it on for a few nights at 10PM, the dogs would learn not to bark, at which point you could just return the box and sleep in peace.

They probably also sell these at pet stores.

Depending on how far away the dogs are from your property, you could try one of those ultrasonic anti-barking devices:

Try this. I had one and it worked great. Neighbors will just think it is a decoration.

Here's a "self-help" option:

PetSafe Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Deterrent

It's a device that emits an ultrasonic noise that is unpleasant to dogs. It's triggered by barking, and unless you know what it is, your neighbor will be none the wiser. The dog will figure out that the noise happens upon barking and poof the dog is trained to not bark.

You would set it up as close to their yard as possible for range purposes. I know it's not free, but it is a much better alternative than calling the police, and you're essentially buying peace between you and your neighbor, and quiet for sleep. Seems like a small amount to pay.

Get This I have a smaller similar device indoors, I used it when my dog was just a puppy. She learned that inside is not the proper place for barking.

We got her to a "no barking" stage, then turned it off. Now she knows that it's ok to bark when playing or something is "seriously wrong" but not all the freeking time for everything.

u/Neil_Degrasse_Bacon · 3 pointsr/news

you might want to get one of these

u/punkn00dlez · 3 pointsr/dogs

I picked up one of these from Amazon for my dog originally. I then moved it closer to my fence because the neighbors' dog is obnoxious. Now both dogs are quiet!

u/StayGoldenBronyBoy · 2 pointsr/funny

not vouching for this one or anything, but this is the first that showed up on amazon. there appears to be two kinds offered by this vendor

Pretty sure its no collar required

u/echotech · 1 pointr/Pets

I have the same problem and haven't been able to find a solution either. I tried using this, but it didn't work at all.

u/Whattheha · 1 pointr/dogs

Maybe try something like this?

u/HellaSober · 1 pointr/sanfrancisco

There are better ways to take care of that, you don't have to kill the dog.

This should be done with the consent of the owner.

u/Paultwo · 1 pointr/videosurveillance

no, just motion. Weatherproof, yes.

Sounds like you need this

u/FreeCandy4u · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

You need to train the dogs to stop barking, if they are next to your house you are in luck. My father and I both used an outside ultrasonic device to train our neighbors dogs. This will not work if they are too far away (like across the street), however the yard next door is perfect. I cant remember the model we used but it was something like this.

It may take a week but eventually they get the idea and shut the hell up.

Good luck.

Edit: Just FYI after running it about a month the dogs seem to be trained, 2 years later and they still don't bark incessantly even with the device off. You may get a bark here and there, waaaay away from the fence where the device is located, but that is not bothersome.

u/nofattiesplease · 1 pointr/news

I'd also recommend this. I got it for my neighbor's dog and it works great

u/luxdapoet · 1 pointr/news

These work pretty well most of the time. I've used them to take care of neighbor dogs who bark all the damn time. It doesn't hurt them either, it's just a loud annoying sound you can't hear.

Ultrasonic noise machines?
>Hey there reddit, I live in the US. My Neighbor recently decided to grace my neighborhood with a new ultrasonic noise machine like this one:

Try something like this:

They're hit and miss as far as if they actually work. I tried one when I had a neighbor with a crazy dog. It seemed to work for a little while.

u/Huplescat22 · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Bad dog owners are immune to good sense and reason. I had a similar problem with my neighbor’s two dogs, and I got an ultrasonic bark deterrent. It did the trick.

u/agent_of_entropy · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Get an ultrasonic bark deterrent. I had one several years ago and it worked like magic.

sound generators to stop dog barking 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 5 and 6 and 6 If you read reviews at Amazon you will see that those type of people are known as "inconsiderate assholes" My neighbors plunked a dog in their backyard on Feb. 7th this year. Obviously purchased the dog based on his barking abilities. Great Dane. Wiki says a lifespan of 6-8 years. Fuck if I'm am going to spend the remainder of my life(old person) listening to a dog barking nonstop for hours on end. Our city has a law that says > 30 min illegal. I started calling the cops after I saw nothing was being done to shut the dog up. After the forth time the cops showed up I think a cop that had been there before showed up and was pissed. That and the legal paperwork the city sent the "inconsiderate assholes" nipped the problem in the bud, at least temporarily. The type of people that allow their dog to bark nonstop feel entitled. I expect the barking to start back up one of these days. Then it will be lawsuit time.

If I end up getting a lawyer. Security system, DVR, with 4 cameras and 85 foot infrared range. Additional infrared illuminators. Microphone. Graphic equalizer software. Aim 3 cameras and illuminators into neighbors backyard. Aim 4th camera at graphic equalizer software display running on computer. It is against the law to record conversations here so the owners are in the backyard with just a microphone could end up being illegal. Related links. 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 5 and 6 and 7 and 8 and 9

Seinfeld: Elaine Benes dognapping episode.

In your case possibly"you can't squeeze blood from a turnip".

Another idea is to record the dog barking. Play it back as a loop at an increased volume. When the neighbors are sleeping would be a good time. If you have a few thousand bucks you could use an LRAD speaker to beam the sound.
