Barking dog next door

We have a dog next door that barks day and night. Owner won't do anything about it.
I have heard there are devices that you can set up near the fence, and when the dog barks, it emits an audio signal that hurts their ears but is too high for humans to hear. The idea is to train the dog to stop barking.
Anyone heard of such device?
Thanks in advance.

That's what dogs do. ;)

Are you inside the city limits? If so, and the dog barks at later hours (say, after 9pm), the local authorities can /maybe/ make them do something about it. That would depend on the local statutes. ;)

Not that works long range. Most sound emitters are attached to the collar. I would think something on the fence line would cause more problems. Every time there's a loud noice, it may go off. Plus, other dogs in the neighborhood could hear it. How would that affect them? At a greater range, it probably wouldn't 'hurt their ears', but it may make /them/ start barking.
Your word-wrap is still borked. It appears non-existant, now. =/

I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

Most neighborhoods in the US have noise ordenances that police can use to fine dog owners for dogs that bark obnoxiously.

The dog had NO RIGHT to disturb your peace. If the authorities won't do anything I'd give him a lead pill.

anything about it.

That's nonsense. Dogs do not have rights and are not citizens. YOU have a right to the peaceful enjoyment of your property, however. See and attorney.

Still barked

Thanks. I guess you can beat just dealing with it directly.
I heard that one reason dogs keep barking is that they think they are being rewarded for doing it -- the barkee comes out, the barker barks, the barkee leaves - hence the barker thinks his barking has scared the barkee away.
Another suggestion I heard was for the barkee to become the barker - like you are saying. Go straight over and stay there until the barker backs off -- just like he does.

My mother-in-law buys me things at Big Lots that she thinks I need. One was this little blue box about half the size of a pack of cigs. It has a 9v. battery and a button. When you press the button, you don't hear anything, but the dog does. I use it when my dogs are being hard headed, and when I work and there's a dog that just won't STFU. It works on about half the dogs. Trick is distance. Not expensive, and maybe what you need. Point it through a slat or knothole, or hold it over the fence. When a dog gets something back that's unpleasant for barking, they will usually back off with continual training. That's how bark collars work. If not, there are a lot of anti-barking devices that you can mount on YOUR property that will give him a pretty good blast that no one else hears. They are spendier, but work when you're not there. And you can disguise them or just say it's a mosquito and moth repeller.
Good luck.

I have the same problem. I bought a boat air horn for about $20 and when he keeps barking for more than 15 minutes or so, I walk up to the fence, point it right at him, and give him a 2-3 second blast. That usually stops him. His owner is a real prick and won't do anything about it. He doesn't seem to mind me blasting his dog though.

You made me think of a possible solution. I have had an occasion to install a high frequency buzzer (3000hz) into a 6 foot x 4 inch PVC tube. Believe it or not if you insulate the butt end of the tube the sound will almost disappear completely unless you are in the path of the end of the tube. I believe the buzzer I had was 90db at a foot and required just .003 amps at 12volts. Sound at this high frequency requires a minimal amount of power, so you can leave it running continually without any real cost.
My suggestion for you is to find a 20000hz or more buzzer that you can't hear and mount it in a PVC tube of the appropriate size. Aim it and wait for the dog to commit suicide.

Ultrasonic aids are available all over the place. They will work if you can put it close to the dog. Camouflage it so it isn't obvious.
As for all the hooey about notification of the authorities, fergeddabout it. I complained for months. Got a neighborhood arbitration face to face with the creep, and then at the end, he refused to sign the papers he had agreed to at the beginning of the meeting. We moved shortly after that. The dog is probably still barking. In some communities, you can get more done, but in some, they can't do dick.
