A barking dog can become a nuisance and cause friction between neighbours, making life unpleasant for everyone involved.
If you have an issue with a barking dog you can lodge a complaint, but there's a few things we ask you to do first.
If possible, speak with your neighbour. They may not even know it's a problem (ie dog only barks when they're at work etc.). This may resolve the issue without any further action.
If you are unable to resolve the issue with your neighbour you can lodged a complaint with the Local Laws Team. Any complaints regarding barking dogs MUST be in writing and contain the following information
