What can you do about a neighbours dog barking?
1. The first step is to talk to your neighbors.
If they're away from the house all day, they may not even know about the barking.
If the dog barks every time you step into your yard or venture near his property, try blocking his vision by planting a hedge or erecting a fence or privacy screen.

Ignore the barking
- When you put your dog in their crate or in a gated room, turn your back and ignore them.
- Once they stop barking, turn around, praise them and give a treat.
- As they catch on that being quiet gets them a treat, lengthen the amount of time they must remain quiet before being rewarded.
You can baby your dog as you would a sick child and give him homemade food such as boiled potatoes, rice and well-cooked, skinless chicken.
In certain situations, your dog may require fluid therapy, antibiotics, a change in diet, antiemetics (drugs to help control vomiting) or other medication.

Although six months old is the average age of a dog's first heat, this can vary widely.
Some dogs can go into heat as young as four months, while larger breeds may be as old as two years before their first heat.
Responsible breeders never breed a dog on her first or even her second heat.
