Can you change up frequency to see if that could work? Maybe trying to have a dog whistle on you and using it in short bursts (or even maybe a regular whistle/sound maker might work too) when that dog barks at you? Dogs can vary in responses and unfortunately it is better for the owner to correct behavior.I am not sure if this is over the top, but my neighbor has several dogs. 2 of them are quiet and I may have heard them bark on rare occasions. My neighbor has a chain link fence and I have a wooden privacy fence. For me to get my riding mower into the back yard, I have to unlock the gate on that side of the property. In addition, anytime I do any landscaping or yard work on that side of my house, the 3rd dog barks insensibly.
So I decided to buy and install an anti-barking device just behind my fence between the pickets as not to cover the microphone and speaker. I am a huge dog lover and feel that this dog is doing what it is supposed to do. However, this neighbor has been known to let this dog out, within minutes after bringing him/her inside, when they see me working on that side of my property (almost in an antagonistic manner).
So far, when this dog barks, it looks at the area where the device is and has backed up a few feet. But, it has not stopped the barking yet.
I remember back in comparative animal psychology course that a dog usually respond to a low growl because that is how mama dog corrects her pups.
