I have not read all the posts on barking and bad neighbors.  I don't have time. 
 But I will say glad that most of my neighbors have dogs that bark more than 
mine.  I am anal about barking as someone else put it.  My neighbors are about 
the same overall.  Living so close as we do to each other (I have 1/3 of an 
acre and a 1 floor house) we have to be nice to each other.  I am glad we can 
co-exist with our dogs.
   
  If we did not live and let live, I would have forced a move by now.  But 
after the 9 months I spent remodeling my kitchen to what I now love, I ain't 
goin' anywheresssss.
   
  If I were attacked legally about my dogs, I would get a lawyer regardless of 
how casual any hearing is.  I would not be without slick representation.

I have dealt with many cases where it has been debark the dog or "get rid"
of it. Moving is not always an option either.

De-barking is a relatively safe (there is always a risk with anesthesia)
procedure that does NOT traumatize the dog. It is a huge myth to suggest
dogs are emotionally disturbed by debarking. Debarked dogs can bark. Even if
reduced sound comes out of their mouths, they don't seem to notice at all!
Debarked dogs that are not being constantly disciplined for barking, in
fact, tend to be much happier dogs!

Honestly, I don't think it's that black and white. I would find a happy
medium, a place I could afford that also accepts pets.
