We have been pretty lucky so far... we live in a bungalow at the end of a dead-end street, so we've only have 3 immediate neighbors. Plus one is an emplty house, our next door also has a dog and over the fense on the other side is somekind of a squatter area where I hear dozens of dogs.

In fact, the entire neighborhood has got dogs (some houses have 4 or 5) and the only house without a doggie that I know of among, say, 20-30 houses in the area is the one in front of our house. (even the kindergarten at the end of the road has got a doggie!)
Our dogs would of course back whenever people or dogs come to our front gate, but we trained them to go back to the kitchen when so told. (credit to my hubby) And since our next door doggie is quite old, our dogs work as their watchdogs and as "doorbells" because the next door doesn't have a doorbell
In fact, they come out and check when our dogs back, and they are quite impressed that our dogs caught an intruder in our premises a while ago.
Now that we'ge got a rottie coming soon, we will have to once again train him real good and try not to cuase any inconvenience to the neighbors. I guess that's the only way to keep DBKL away.
Hope things will be settled in a good way with your neighbor aunty's dogs....
