Nuisance from dogs

Barking dogs

Often owners of barking dogs are not aware that they are causing a noise problem as dogs usually bark when their owner is absent. Please read our leaflet on dogs.

In law a barking dog can be a noise nuisance and the owner can be taken to Court if they do nothing to try and stop the nuisance.  Dogs usually bark for the following reasons:

  • loneliness
  • boredom or frustration
  • attention seeking
  • defending its territory
  • medical problems
