You can call the police if your neighbor's dog is barking, but never dial 911 to report a barking dog. Use the police department's non-emergency line. Before you call the police, however, keep a few things in mind: Calling the police could escalate an already unpleasant situation.
Contact the authorities. This generally means getting a homeowners' association involved (if you have one), and contacting police or animal control. Authorities will most likely perform a wellness check on the dog and give your neighbor a warning that the problem must be resolved.
Fortunately, there are some things you can do to make that pup clam up and get the peace and quiet you need without being a jerk.

Steps to take when the neighbor's dog is barking
Remove the Motivation: If possible when you dog barks at the neighbors, bring them to another room and distract them. Letting them continue to bark, or even opening the doors or windows is rewarding them for the barking behavior. This can be especially useful when your dog is using a protective or greeting bark.
Use A Whistle Or Noise Emitter When the neighbor's dog starts barking, give the whistle a blow. It may cause more barking at first, but if the pup comes to associate their barking with the irritating whistle sound, they may eventually stop barking to avoid the noise.
File a noise complaint Call the police: If all else fails, you can try filing a police report. While a barking dog isn't the top priority for the police, they may give your neighbor a citation which will send a message you're serious about quieting the barking dog.
Try adding some extra walks or runs each week, as well as additional training sessions to exercise your dog's brain. If your canine companion knows basic obedience, you can teach him tricks and strengthen the skills he already knows. This will likely decrease the barking, but may not stop it altogether.
Block The Dog's View If you find that your neighbor's dog barks every time you go into your yard or get close to the neighbor's property, the dog is probably being territorial. A good solution for this kind of barking is to block the dog's view with a fence, some kind of screen, or some privacy bushes and trees.
Ask a friend or family member to immediately call the veterinarian (or an emergency clinic if it is after hours), in order to provide additional advice and prepare for your arrival, if necessary. The first step is to make certain whether your dog is breathing.
Contact your local council - if speaking to your neighbour hasn't worked or isn't an option, try contacting your local council about the noise complaint. This can help resolve the underlying issue, and if there is a welfare complaint they'll contact us.
Ultrasonic sounds travel in a straight line much like the light beam of a flashlight. Setup the device so it is pointing toward the area where the dog is barking. Ultrasonic sound will not pass through solid objects, so place the device high enough that the sound will pass over any obstacle, such as a fence or shrubs.
