Dog nuisance pack
If you are affected by a barking dog, the City offers a Dog Nuisance Pack.
This pack contains a 'letter to your neighbour' template, to help you make your neighbour aware that their dog is creating a nuisance.
Included in the pack is a dog diary and other useful information.
The dog diary provides rangers with a record of the date, time and duration of the barking and is needed for a formal complaint.
After an investigation, if the dog is deemed to be a nuisance the owner will be issued with an order to prevent a dog being a nuisance. This order will be in effect for 6 months from the date of issue.
