Barking Dog / Animal Noise

Many dog owners are not aware that their dog is barking and/or that it is a nuisance to others. Dogs often bark when people are not home so the owner has no idea of the problem.

It’s essential that you notify the dog owner of the issue and make several genuine, friendly attempts to solve the issue.

Have a neighbourly chat and allow them some time, at least a couple of weeks, to rectify the problem. Download and leave a Dear Neighbour Bark Card, or you could just leave a polite note in the letterbox giving the owners some information when the problem occurs.

If that fails, use the button below to report an issue.
