|How often do you walk them? When my Dachshund misses a few walks, she gets more vocal. She gets bored and creates a job for herself.
We have a beagle next door and 2 across the street that pretty much bark continuously when they're out. None of them get walked, they are bored, and it's become a habit.
It's tough living next door to a barky dog because Lupi's instinct is to join in. If she started barking with them, I would bring her right back inside. Eventually she learned that she needed to be quiet. Now she will mostly ignore the barking going on around her and just lay in her sunny spot (her favorite thing to do in our yard)
Try going out with her and see what's getting her going. Is there another dog nearby? Squirrels? Are there noises she can't figure out? Or is she trying to get you to go outside and play with her?
Once you know why, you'll have a better chance of solving the problem.
