My dog keeps barking at night, how do I stop him?

How do I get my 9month old male Cavalier King Charles to stop barking at late hours of the night? I'm sick of getting up at such ungodly hours to find him outside barking at absolutely nothing!

imagine how your neighbors feel...

There are a few options:

Get to the dog and scold him as SOON as POSSIBLE! if you wait till the dog has barked for an hour, he wont make the connection.

Bring him in at night (garage or shed)

Consider a muzzle (these dont hurt the animal.)

Avoid shock collars unless you're willing to wear one around for a day first... XD

I am so worried about the neighbours, I guess it's just something I will have to train him out of by scolding him. I couldn't imagine using a shock collar. Thanks for your help!

There might be ground hogs or mole rats or something, pull the blinds down at night

Why is he outside late at night, and at 9 months old? Bring him in at night and have him sleep in your room, like the house pet he is supposed to be. The barking will stop.

He does sleep in my room. We don't have a dog door yet so I sometimes have to get up & let him out for the toilet, but half the time he just barks. I guess it's something I will have to train him out of.

I see, I misunderstood from your question. Perhaps he is not tired enough to sleep through the night yet. Try to exercise him a couple of hrs before bed.
