Barking Dogs

Excessive barking is a nuisance offence under the Domestic Animals Act 1994.  If your neighbour's dog is barking frequently then you should initally attempt to speak to the neighbour before lodging a complaint with Council. 

Your neighbour may not be aware that the dog is causing a nuisance if the barking occurs when no-one is home.  If you cannot resolve the issue with your neighbour and the problem continues then you can contact Council on 1800 065 993 to lodge a complaint.

To lodge a complaint, council will require a noise complaint assessment to be completed.

Council also requires a record of the occurances of the specified noise on a noise log sheet for a period 7 days or the time as specified by Council. Once the log is completed, the assessment and log sheet can be returned to the Compliance derpartment at the Strathbogie Shire Council
