How do I report a neighbor’s barking dog?
Animal Control has established procedures to address barking dog complaints in 3 phases. The most efficient way to resolve the complaint is to consistently report the nuisance to Animal Control once every 7-10 days during a 3-4 week period. The county takes specific action if the noise hasn’t subsided after each complaint received. The process allows for voluntary compliance by the dog owner while establishing a defensible court case if needed. If too much time lapses between complaints, the process must begin anew.
