I can understand dogs barking for a reason, then stopping. It is the non-stop part that drives me crazy. Especially when we have overnight guests as the barkers are just under the spare bedroom window. Our houses are pretty close together, but luckily the rooms that are the most bothered by the barking, besides the spare, are our public spaces, so the rest of us can sleep at least. But when they go out at night or away for the weekend (and have someone "check" on the dogs) OMG, it is honestly all I can do not to pull out the bb gun to try to retrain them.
They have been reported numerous times by all the neighbors, they just think it must be someone elses dogs that were reported. Our homes are on the inside of a curvey road so our back yards are small and wedge shaped, so the barking bothers at least 4 homes. And all the owners would have to do is to lock the doggy door when they go away. I wish some coyote or fox would slip in that door, then I am pretty sure it would get sealed.
