My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.
In order to supply you with an informed answer, it is necessary for me to collect some additional information from you. When I receive your response or reply, it will likely take me between 30-45 minutes to type up my reply if I am still online when I receive notice that you replied. I hope you can be patient.
What part of the country do you live in?
Are you sleeping during the day or are the dogs barking late at night?
About what time in the evening does the behavior stop?
What time does it start in the morning?
What have you tried so far?
Thanks for the additional information. It is helpful.
You have the option of reporting the behavior to the council in your area. Before doing so, I'd try and document the behavior by video taping the clock on your computer and letting it record the dog's barking behavior. If you have a few instances on tape and then keep a written log of the nuisance barking, you should have a valid complaint to the council.
You might also get a sonic anti bark device. It uses noise that is inaudible to the human ear to distract the dogs when they bark. This is usually effective for a little while. The problem is that the dog will get used to the noise and start ignoring it. See one such device here:
You might also offer to purchase citronella spray anti bark collars for the dogs in question. These would need to be on the dogs to be effective.
Since they are not your dogs, there really isn't much else you can do beyond what I mentioned. You might think about sound proofing your bedroom if the council and the devices don't help the situation.
