Barking dogs

Dogs only bark if they are not happy. If dogs are barking persistently there is a reason for it.

If you are disturbed by barking dogs - first approach the owners.

If the dogs bark when they are left their owners may well not realise there is a problem.

If this fails, or you are not happy about approaching the owners, we may be able to help.

If you have dogs that bark - help is available, we can also advise you on what you can do.
