Just a couple of suggestions:
1. Get some photocopies of your blank time/occurrence sheet (or create your own on computer) so you can continue when the first one runs out, or your month runs out.
I would hope you would still be able to get Environmental Health intervention even if the dog(s) didn't start up again until after the first month had finished. You might want to check this with the EH.
If you had a full record of subsequent re-occurrences of noise nuisance I can't see they could ignore it.
2. I watched a tv programme some years ago where they had found success training dogs to stop barking with an essential oil contraption on their collar that emitted its fragrance as soon as the dog started to bark. Apparently, the dog becomes distracted and intrigued by the new odour it immediately detects and stops barking to search out its origin.
No idea what it's called, though, and I'm not sure if you can get the same sort of thing for the shouty owners!
