How do I stop my neighbour’s dog from barking?
When a neighbours dog is continually barking it can be very frustrating and hard to live with. I suggest that you speak to your neighbour and explain that their dog is barking, they may not even be aware that it is barking as it might only bark while they are not home. You can politely suggest that they look into the cause of the barking. Visit our article on the reasons why dogs bark to better understand the reasons behind dogs barking.
There is also a product available called PetSafe Outdoor Bark Deterrent which looks like a birdhouse and can be used to reduce barking from your own dogs outdoors or to help control neighbouring dogs. An internal microphone picks up barking from up to 15 metres away and activates the ultrasonic signal which a dog will then associate with barking and hopefully its barking will reduce.
If this fails and the barking persists you should speak to your Local Council and they will be able to help you.
