Constant barking or whining from a dog can be disturbing and annoying for neighbours.
The noise from a barking dog can be classed as a statutory nuisance, which means the Council can decide to serve a noise abatement notice. This requires the owners of the dog to exercise control over its barking.
There are many reasons why dogs bark. Our leaflet How To Deal With Barking Dogs lists the main triggers together with suggested remedies.
If all of the ideas above have not worked and your dog is still barking, you could try using an Anti-Bark Collar. This is often good for dogs that are left outside. These are available from pet shops or veterinary surgeries, who can also provide advice on their use.
