Why we picked this?

Good Woofy is a handy tool that will no doubt be appreciated by you and your neighbors. You must first record a command that will help quiet down your dog and a command that will praise them when they obey. Then place your iDevice somewhere where your pet can’t reach it yet where it can be heard. Activate the recording feature and head out. Good Woofy will listen for barks and record what it hears. When you return home you’ll be able to view how often your dog barked and playback the recordings. The app also includes the ability to adjust sensitivity, share stats, and share recordings.

You have a dog that needs some additional training.

You don’t have a spare iDevice lying around.
