Dogs that bark excessively can be a source of great irritation to neighbours.
Dogs bark for many reasons. For a list of possible causes of barking, and solutions to the problem, see the website of the Victorian Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR).
If a neighbour's dog is barking excessively, try politely approaching your neighbour about the problem. In many cases, they may not even be aware that their dog is causing a disturbance. Offer some of the information from the DEDJTR website in order to try to find a solution together.
If this approach fails, you can report a barking dog to Council by contacting one of Council's Customer Service Officers on 03 5585 9900 or 03 5392 7700 or submit the online customer request form.
