When your neighbors have a barking dog that they can't control, you may contact local authorities such as the police or the local Animal Control. Depending on your location, there are laws which make it so people may not legally have loud barking dogs after a certain time of day. Before you contact local authorities, try to encourage your neighbors to get their dog not to bark. If the noise continues, the law may either take the dogs away, or fine the dog owners until they find an answer to the problem. If your locality permits it, you could sign a neighborhood petition to not allow their dog to be outside during certain parts of the night.

Bark control is the method of curbing your dog's barking sound. Though it is a normal action for dog's, excessive barking may cause a disturbance for neighbors or other dog owners. Barking is usually seen from dogs when an unfamiliar person walks close to the dog or property that the dog is guarding or laying at. There are multiple ways to control dog barking, from dog houses with specially designed walls to shock collars that simply "buzz" your pet to make it aware that barking isn't necessary.

The sound of a ringing telephone in your neighbors house from you calling them to tell them that their dog is barking and disturbing you. You can also call Animal Control if this is during the "quiet hours", perhaps after 10pm and before 6am.

Depending upon the wording of the statute and the circumstances, yes, it can be. A constantly barking dog that cannot, or will not, be controlled by the owner, and disturbs the neighbors can be deemed to be disturbing the peace (or a 'public nuisance' or however the appropriate statute may be worded).
