Barking and dangerous dogs
A dog constantly barking or whining can be disturbing for your neighbours. In law, a barking dog can be a noise nuisance and its owner can be taken to court if they do nothing to stop it.
Tell us about a barking dog problem
Report a barking and dangerous dog and tell us:
- the address where the dog is
- the times of day when the barking becomes a nuisance
- how many dogs are making the noise
- details of the owner, if known.
DEFRA have produced a barking dogs guidance leaflet and our animal welfare officers can also give advice.
