barking dogs

What recourse do victims of nuisance dog barking have?

Barking dogs and other forms of aural assault gravely degrade the quality of life of many in our community, including my own. Are there ways in which the victims of nuisance dog barking remedy this situation? Is reliance upon local government to enforce anti-barking laws, where they exist, the best approach. What other forms of recourse are there?
