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.
Strathbogie Shire Council welcomes feedback from its residents and will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as possible.
If you would like to keep in contact with Council and stay up to date with the latest Council news, please register your details here.
