We have neighbours with 2 jack russels, one HUGE boerboel, and a boxer cross something. They bark at everything, generally the jack russels yapping set the bigger dogs off, even with the owners at home they do not keep the dogs quiet. Whenever I venture closer than 10m (I have a large plot) to their fence, they bark incessantly. Is infuriating!!!
I agree with SimonB, I think you should look closer to home for the real issue, dogs require stimulation, not being locked in a yard the whole day.
