My neighbor's dog is barking every time I unlock my front door.

My neighbor's recently acquired tiny dog is barking every time I'm in the hall, effectively alerting the entire building to my comings and goings, particularly late at night. How do I make it stop?

Our apartment doors are very close together, and the sound of my key turning in the lock will invariably make the dog start barking for a couple of minutes. I don't really have any other interaction with the dog or the dog's owner except for passing each other in the hallway maybe a few times per week, with much comically inefficient lunging and barking (from the dog) and polite apologies (from dog owner lady).
Given that I am not the dog's owner/trainer, is there something I can do to convince the creature I am not the threat it is valiantly guarding against?
