How do you know the neighbours dog didn't consent?
Its pretty clear you need to kill your neighbour and his dog. Do it, you know i'm right.
Earplugs don't block out all sound. Not even close. They do take the hard edge off of sounds, especially like doors closing or the snap of a dog bark.
I started wearing earplugs when I had to sleep on a ship next to a couple dozen other dudes within 6' of me. Still wanted to torture and murder the ones that snored. Still wanted to break the fingers of the ones that set their alarms 1.5hrs before they had any intention of getting out of their rack. I kept wearing them when I worked nights. Now that's just part of how I sleep.
But as far as waking up to the alarm clock, the most important thing, earplugs or not, is to wake up when it goes off and not use the snooze feature. If you've spent your whole life hitting snooze, first, decide when you need to wake up and set the alarm for that time and then get up at that time, but if you don't then you are training yourself to not fully come out of sleep when the alarm goes off.
But honestly, 90% of the time I wake up and look at my clock 3-4min before the alarm goes off and get up. If I actually sleep until it goes off hearing it, even through earplugs, makes me wake all the way up.
I think if you get enough sleep, you won't have a problem with hitting the snooze. I've never had that problem. Typically wake up 10-30 minutes before alarm goes off.
The only way to stop barking dogs is to go barking-dog postal. Barricade yourself with a fortress of armaments, then unleash a cacophany of barking dogs through a huge sound system in the middle of the night and go live on Facebook announcing to the world that you will not turn off the barking dogs until someone does something about the real barking dogs in your neighborhood. It might work but I don't know if you will still be alive afterwards to find out.
But, yeah, I can relate to how you feel. Hang in there, earplugs sounds like a better idea.
If you're a light sleeper, a sleeping pill might put you out enough to ignore the barks along with earplugs. If that doesn't work, record the barks for a couple hours on a Tascam recorder and present it to the police when filing a report so they know you mean business.
Actually decent advice, play death metal on your stereo all night, point it toward your neighbours house and stay the night at a motel.
When i used to work night shift i had a hell of a hard time sleeping, they were building a bunch of town houses around us, they would start building at 8am everyday, just at the time i was going to bed.
That night I did go out and record video of it on my phone. Going to contact animal control about it this week. Ive had problems with my ears so wearing earplugs to bed id like to avoid if possible.
We use white noise machines. Actually, we use an app on our phone. It's basically a static sound. Helps my kids (half are light sleepers) and my super light sleeper wife miss those kinds of noises. It still allows my wife to hear the big noises. I do have a legit worry about someone getting in my house if they're fairly quiet, though.
Will it look like this?
I use white noise on our echo dot. There is an Alexa skill called ambient noise with maybe 50 different kind of white noise. It's great.
The app we use has something like 40 choices from white noise to rain to waves crashing to heartbeat to cars driving, etc.
Get your neighborhood mailman to take the pooch out. Seriously, no one here watches Seinfeld anymore? Cmon
Crashing waves sound no bueno.
We use the static option.
There are anti-barking devices, some advertised as being for a neighbor's dog.
I feel your pain, though. We had a neighbor with a yapping ankle-biter. She was a very nice neighbor who worked odd hours, would let the dog out and then fall asleep for 8 hours. Why can people sleep through their own dogs barking?

We prefer waterfall
I prefer golden shower.
Tell us something we don’t know.
@ you guys using earplugs,
Are you using the basic foam plugs? the swimmer plugs? Or something else? I'm ready to try this again. I had 2 hours of police helicopter last night. ****ing ruined my night (and today, for lack of sleep).
