Dogs barking noise

Small dog barking

Dogs usually bark because their owners are out and have left them at home alone. They will not usually bark while their owner is there, so the owner can be unaware of the problem. If you are disturbed by excessive barking, you should speak to your neighbour to see if the issue can be resolved amicably.

If the nuisance persists, the council's environmental health department may become involved and can provide advice to owners on ways excessive barking can be avoided.
