Uhg that sucks.  As a dog lover I always feel so bad for them in these situations, but after a while it just gets so annoying.  If you know the neighbor isn’t going to react crazy I would have FI go and talk to him.  Just in a casual way like “Hey not sure if you noticed but your dog has been making a lot of noise, we can hear it pretty loud from our place.”  And depending on how bad it is, you could call the police or other local authorities with an anonymous request for them to check in on it.  They probably won’t do anything but if they knock on the door it could shame neighbor into actually being a better pet parent.  But that is a last resort option.

Call your neighbor and ask about the noise.  I would be pissed too, but the first step is to politely comment about it and see if he does anything to fix the situation.

Would you be open to the idea of looking after the god for a bit?  I’d approach him and say something like: “hey… I see you’re looking after Fluffykins, I’m guessing by his howling that he’s not a fan of the great outdoors…  our dog would love to have a playmate for a couple of days, would it be ok if he came over to stay with us for a bit?”

If you’re not keen on that, just be honest and tell hte neighbour that it’s upsetting to you, and to your dog to hear the constant barking/howling, and ask if he can please take the dog inside for the bulk of the day.

If THAT doesn’t work, make a noise complaint.
