Default Minimizing barking when home alone?

Hi to all, I'm new here and this is my first post.

I'm here out of desperation more than anything. My Girlfriend has 2 border terriers who live with her and her Dad, and they have to stay in cages during the day as both my GF and her Dad are at full-time work.

The neighbours have been complaining for a long time about the noise of the dogs barking during the day when they're alone, and we've tried lots to get them to be quiet but nothing seems to work. It's got to the point now where one set of neighbours are threatening to call the Environmental Services to have the dogs removed and probably put to sleep because of the noise they apparently make.

I'm just open to any suggestions anyone may have about how to stop the barking, or minimize the noise? It's a long shot, but I thought maybe someone would have come across this problem before and have a good idea of something to try!

Thanks in advance
