I had a neighbor whose dog barked constantly, and lunged at the fence anytime I was in my own backyard. I asked the neighbor to do something about the dog, like put it in the house - at least after 9.00p. The neighbor's reply - "dogs are supposed to bark - he lets me know if some body is in the yard". I explained that if it barks nearly constantly - you don't know if someone is in your yard or not. He mumbled something and said "I still ain't gonna do nuthin bout my dog".
Several calls to the police when the dog was barking after 10.00p finally resulted in some quiet some of the time.
I moved - now my neighbor has roosters.
