Barking dogs

Report a barking dog

Before submitting a report, please make sure you have read our guidance and suggestions on the previous page of this section.

What we will need to know

We will need you to tell us:

  • your name, address, and a contact telephone number
  • the address where the dog lives
  • how the noise from the barking is affecting you.

What will happen next?

If you choose to submit a report, we will send you an email with a link to download a diary sheet for you to log when and how the problem affects you.

Your diary sheet will need to be returned to us to. We will then review your case to see if we can help.

If no diary is returned within 4 weeks of the original complaint, we will presume that the matter has been resolved and your complaint will be closed.

Fairness and confidentiality 

We investigate complaints as an independent body. Both parties are our clients and we have a duty to treat both fairly, respecting privacy and, where appropriate, confidentiality.  We will not advise you of the discussions we have had with other parties.

Information received (your details) will not be released unless we are required by law to do so. Should enforcement action be taken your details will be made available to the court.
