What Can I Use to Stop the Neighbour's Dog Barking?

Q.  The neighbours have a neurotic maltese that barks at everything from behind 2.4m colorbond fence.  Do you have any ideas on how to stop the dog barking?

A.  That is tough one.  The PetSafe Ultrasonic Bark Deterrent is one option.  You can be hang it on your side of the fence but make sure that is is above the colorbond fence and in direct line of sight to the dog.  Angling it down a little into the yard will may help.  Also for it to be effective it needs the dog to be coming towards the unit for best results.  It is important to note however, that if the dog is barking all over the yard it is not likely to be very effective.  You may need to approach the neighbour or your local authorities on this one.
