Get one of those dog buzzers (not the zappers), I mean the one that makes the dog whistle sound.

Barking dogs = nuisance barking = not enough exercise or mental stimulation.
Your dogs are bored and finding an outlet for their physical and intellectual frustration.
Run them until they drop every day. Find interesting things for them to do. Swimming, hide and seek with toys and treats, meet new dogs, walk new places, go to pet stores, etc.

Answer by Sophie
I would take them to a trainer and ask them for help, plus when they are out side interact with them so they don't feel lonely or scared, or give them something to play with

Dogs bark for different reasons so you need to figure out why they are barking before you can try to stop it. But if they're outside, they're either barking because they want to be back in the house, or in response to some perceived threat -- a passerby, a dog going by, a mysterious sound, a nearby bark, etc. Usually if one dog barks the other dog will bark, too, just in case it missed something.
I would keep the dogs in the house where they couldn't see passersby.

My Golden Retriever loves to bark and bothers my neighbors. We purchased a high tech shock collar. The dog knows when it is on not to bark, when it is off, he knows he can bark...dogs are like children, you have to do what works for them and teaches them. Some dogs would shut up if you put a vibrating or citroenella collar which spritzs them with a spray when they bark, others are more stubborn and require a static shock now and then to teach them not to bark.
The cruelest thing that can happen to a dog, is to lose it's home because the owner can't manage them.

When it comes to teaching your dog to stop barking, the opposite is the way to go. Start when he is barking, keep saying "speak", encourage him to bark and reward him with a treat.
