Report a barking dog

If you're affected by a barking dog, first contact the owner and advise them of your concerns.

If this doesn't resolve the issue we may investigate and take appropriate action.

You will need to tell us:

  • Exactly where the barking dog lives - simply stating "down the road" or "over the back fence somewhere" does not help us to investigate your complaint

  • Has the dog barked before

    • If so, you will be asked for more information

  • Details of the barking including frequency, duration, reason for barking etc

  • Dog owner's reaction when barking occurs

  • Any further comments

  • Your full name - we need your name to send you a barking diary for completion over a two week period; please note that we are unable to investigate anonymous reports

  • Your contact details (email or phone)

  • Your address
