Have a long leash on the dog and be in the yard with him. Reel the dog in after one or two barks and encourage him to stop barking. Reward being quiet. I tell my dog, "all done".

The dog thinks it is his job to alert you that someone is nearby. If the dog is in the yard alone, barking at neighbors and people passing by is something interesting to do. It is your job to teach him the proper response to people being on the other side of the fence
