Help with a Barking Dog

My boyfriend is working the night shift for several months, and our neighbor's dog's barking is waking him up in the morning. We are looking for suggestions on how to handle this.

Our neighbor has a Rottweiler who is very sweet, but very loud. He keeps her in the yard right next to our bedroom during the day, and the dog whines and barks for several hours at a time. We understand that dogs are going to bark and that it's not the neighbor's fault that my boyfriend needs to sleep during the day, but we'd like to find ways to minimize the noise. We're planning to tell our neighbor what the situation is, with the understanding that he might not want to make any changes, and my boyfriend also runs a fan and a "nature sounds" cd to drown out the noise. Does anyone have any other specific suggestions that might help with the barking, or help him sleep through it?
