How to stop them barking at the builders?

The next door neighbour is having an extension built, when the builders are on the roof or going past the end of our garden the dogs go nuts.

So if I tell them to be quiet they are, if I'm in the garden with them they can restrain themselves.

How do I move to the next step whereby I don't have to be there? I've read The Culture Clash so I understand why they do this, but how do we get past it?

They like barking, it's a self reinforcing behaviour, they want to warn me of impending Hungarian attack. wink How can I convince them it isn't necessary???
