Is your neighbor’s barking dog affecting your quality of life? Nuisance Barking is against the law in most areas.
- Are you losing sleep?
- Is the barking negatively affecting your health and/or well-being?
- Is the barking affecting your personal relationships?
- Can you hear the barking in your home, with or without the windows closed?
- Does the barking disrupt the enjoyment of your front and/or back yard?
You have the right to the peaceful enjoyment of your home. If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you owe it to yourself and your family to contact the dog owner. How long does your quality of life have to be affected before you act? Weeks, months, or even years?
Before contacting animal control, it is recommended that you contact the dog owner first.
Ultimately it is up to the dog owner to accept responsibility and actively pursue a solution to the nuisance barking. This is the best possible outcome. Do you really want to contact the authorities if you don’t have to?
