Civic enforcement do not deal with barking dogs.
It is a noise nuisance and environmental health issue.
Constant barking and howling is annoying to neighbours.
It can result in us taking legal action against dog owners for causing a noise nuisance.
If a neighbour’s dog barks constantly and your neighbour does nothing to prevent it, report it to on our noise pollution page.
Environmental health will investigate.
If it is agreed that a statutory nuisance is happening they will serve an abatement notice.
