How do I stop my dog from barking, especially at night?

My dog is 4 years old and likes to bark randomly especially at night or when the neighbors kids are in their pool. It's reasonable that he barks at the neighbors on their pool because they scream a lot. But at night he barks at nothing or something I can't see or hear. I tell him to stop in my most stern but calm voice but he still doesn't listen. How do I stop him from barking at any time I don't want him too?

Dog should be inside at night. If you are leaving the dog outside, that is why its barking.

Dogs hear what we do not. They hear someone at the road or approaching long before we do. So, realize, that he is not barking at nothing. He is doing his job, alerting you. However, living in a noisy neighborhood makes it difficult because all of those alerts are not the kind you want to hear. Calm him down, hold him close and tell him it's okay - it's just the neighbors. You will probably have to do that for a while until he can decipher those noises from someone coming to the door.

I know someone who uses a spray bottle. They spray their dogs when they start barking for no reason or for a reason they don't need to bark. And it seems to work really well.
