Barking Dogs

Are you having problems with a barking dog?

The best advice in the first instance is to speak to the owner who may not be aware of the problem.
  • If this doesn't help, contact us and we will get in touch with the owner to offer advice about reducing the level of barking.
  • If the problem continues, we can formally investigate your complaint and, where we believe there is a noise nuisance, we can take action by serving a Noise Abatement Notice. This notice gives the owner time to deal with the problem.
  • And if that doesn't work, the owner may face prosecution and a fine.
