A long time a go, far away... my friend moved to acreage - and she had several dogs, one of whom barked at strangers - and stray wombats
And the neighbours complained. And she said - she'd shut the dog up - when they shut up their 6am-on-sunday honking geese.
I don't know how people in the country can complain about dogs - when they've got sulphur cresteds nesting in the trees next to their house. My unfavourite noise - is rev heads tuning their cars after 10pm. Or 2am... whatever.
