    Barking dogs

    If a barking dog in your neighbourhood is causing a problem for you, try talking to the dog owner first if possible. You can lodge a complaint with Council using our Community Disputes and Lodgment form (accessible pdf 177KB). To help us investigate and help resolve the problem, we'll ask you to fill in a Barking Dog Diary.
