You're lucky. If a dog woke me regularly and it wasn't handled said dog wouldn't survive long. Sorry, my sleep trumps a dog.
Today I hate it and would give just about anything to be able to live out in the country with NO NEIGHBORS.

Try one of those vibrating collars.
They are made for the exact situation you are in.
No shock...just a vibration that will stop the barking.

It sounds as though you are trying your best, but truth be told - It's annoying, no matter if I am awake or not. Responsible dog owner (in the city an with close neighbors) includes keeping the dog quiet. Just because quiet hours are 10-6 doesn't mean it's ok for the dog to bark non-stop 6-10. You want your dog to roam free and have the space to "be a dog" without neighbors to hassle you, move... animals belong outside anyway (IMHO) I'm a dog lover, btw...

I literally stress myself EVERY SINGLE MORNING about making sure my dog stays quiet so that some stupid broad doesn't complain to the whole neighborhood about my dog.

I agree with this for the opposite reason. When we moved in it was so quiet, since then everyone new came with dogs, some many dogs and they ALL bark day and night. No more quiet sitting with our morning coffee by the pond, no more sleeping in on days off.
I am stunned that people let the little kids be awakened early on their days off school...no one seems to care that they change everyone elses lives. Change, I mean destroy!
