Today, I was trying to fall asleep. Unfortunately, my next-door neighbor's baby began to cry. I closed the window and rolled over, unable to hear the crying anymore. My dog's hearing is better than mine, and so he started barking. Goodbye, good night's sleep. FML

You can't do much about the baby but you can teach your dog to STFU. Google 'how to bark train your dog'. There are also bark control collars. You're the boss start acting like it.

Not all dogs respond to bark training. Growing up, we had 2 dogs, a lab and a Schipperke. When the lab starting barking, we got her a shock collar and she learned to not bark. When the schipperke started barking, we got her a shock collar as well, and she learned how to bark around the shock or ignore it (even on the highest setting).

Now, the lab has passed on, and we got a new puppy. The old schipperke has now taught the puppy to bark all the time (she didn’t before they met).

You can always try proper training instead of negative reinforcement?

If they can apparently learn when to bark, they can learn to stop doing it. And it's definitely more reasonable to train a dog than expect a baby to stop crying.

My dogs only bark when people are in my yard or my neighbors daughter brings over her yippy chihuahuas. Oh ya, she walks them in my yard the calls to complain that my dogs are barking.
