Barking Dogs

Barking dog 2

Dogs that bark excessively can be a source of great irritation to neighbours. 

Dogs bark for many reasons. For a list of possible causes of barking, and solutions to the problem, see the website of the Victorian  Department of Agriculture.

If a neighbour’s dog is barking excessively, try politely approaching your neighbour about the problem. In many cases, they may not even be aware that their dog is causing a disturbance. Offer some of the information from the DPI website in order to try to find a solution together.

If this approach fails, you can report a barking dog to Council by contacting one of Council’s Customer Service Officers on 1300 520 520.
