Barking dogs

Barking dogs can become a nuisance and cause friction between neighbours, making life unpleasant for everyone.

Speak with your neighbour

If barking is becoming an issue, start by speaking with your neighbour.

You can use our sample letter (PDF, 125KB) to guide you in writing a letter to put in their mailbox, if you do not feel comfortable speaking with them.

Your neighbours may not be aware that it’s a problem (i.e. dog only barks when they’re at work etc.). This may resolve the issue without any further action.

Contact us

If you are unable to resolve the matter with your neighbour, you can write a letter to us including:

  • Your name and mailing address
  • Property address where dog is located

This can be done by mail or email.
