Environmental problems Tackle a noise problem

Noise from barking dogs

The constant barking or whining of a dog can be annoying, the problem often occurs when the dog's owner is out of the house so the owner doesn't know until someone complains.

Problems of excessive dog barking can often be resolved informally by politely explaining the problem to the owner and trying to come to a compromise. However, this informal approach may not always be successful and some people may not be prepared to speak directly to the owner.
