Welcome aboard, Spinner. This is a general question we ask all newcomers: "How would you address a neighbor's dog that barked incessantly and kept you awake at night?"
You will be judged on creativity, the probability of your plan causing PTSD to the neighbors and the likelihood of your plan being successful.
Depends on 2 things :
1.). The kind of dog - if it’s one those tea cup, miniature or dwarf creatures that yap, squeals or barks at a high pitch octave just to be heard …. Or
2.) If it’s an award winning, best of breed, clear genetic line of greatness lab or golden retriever . . .
if 1, send the half Persian/half bobcat, cat that my daughter loves to “sic” him !!! Or,
2., get up, hitch up the boat, pick up the poor thing, and head to the camp, knowing that that dog is hurting as bad as I am missing the water & that it’s not duck/goose season and we both need a little “on the water” time again, whatever month it is!
Have had 3 “really”good dogs in my years but they were all field dogs (Britney’s & English Springer Spaniels), but never duck or goose dogs, all my buddies had the water dogs. But hopefully it’s still not to late on that. SpinnerBaitJig
