We had dogs that would howl at cop sirens growing up. Mind you, this was pretty much a daily occurrence where we lived, so it got old fast. Yelling at them didn't work, keeping 'em inside didn't work, petting them to calm them down didn't work. Not even water worked, and my folks were too cheap for bark collars. They borrowed a family friend's paintball gun and my father climbed into the tree (we're still trying to figure out how my 200+ lb father climbed up 3 4" thick steps and into the tree) and popped the dogs with bright pink stink bullets whenever they started barking. Granted they were a collie mix and another thick furred mutt, so it really didn't hurt them. After getting popped every time they did it over the weekend, they quit and went to go lick their "wounds." Never did bark at sirens after that.
