Noise from Dog

You can report noise from a barking dog.

The City may send a letter to the dog's owner within seven days of getting your complaint. The letter will explain how to curb the dog's barking. It will not include any information about you. For the City to respond to and act on your complaint, you must provide the address where the dog is barking and your contact information. Your information will not be shared with the dog's owner.

If a letter is sent to the dog owner, then the City will send you a letter with instructions about how to follow up if the dog continues to be noisy.

If the City has already sent letters to the dog owner, the City may do a noise inspection.

If you think the barking is a sign that the dog is being abused or mistreated, you should make an animal abuse complaint instead of a noise complaint.
