1. Barking dogs
A barking dog can be a noise nuisance. It may be the problem only occurs when the house is unoccupied and so it is not known about until a complaint is made.
The majority of noise complaints are about dogs which bark when left alone, due to boredom. This can happen when left both indoors and in the garden. The owner could be taken to court if nothing is done to stop the nuisance.
For help and advice on how to control your dog's barking, read the Dog's Trust's guide (PDF 239kb) on the issue.
