What Can we do About our Neighbour's Noisy Dogs?

Noise Dogs Barking Nuisance Noise Levels

Q.Since our neighbours moved in around 9 months ago we have had constant issues with their dogs continuely barking day and night. They live in a small two bedroom house with a tiny garden and the dogs are labradors.

Their barks are really deep and loud and can be heard easily in our house. Whenever they go out the dogs bark non-top for hours, keeping our one-year-old awake. When they go into the garden it is horrible and they go mad if they hear us at all. What can we do?
(Mr Paul Fairless, 22 September 2008)

A.

Persistent dog barking is not acceptable by law but before you take any formal action, it might be worth visiting your neighbours first and explain the situation to them as they may not be aware that there is a problem.

It can be a nightmare to live next door to a dog that is Barking Persistently, but the good news is that there is usually a reason for this behaviour. If both of your neighbours are out at work all day, the dogs are likely to be barking because they feel lonely and/or bored.

There could be other explanations, too. For example, they could be neglected and have medical problems, or they might simply be defending their territory. Alternatively, the owners may simply not know how to train them or they haven’t even bothered to try. Whatever the reasons, it’s not acceptable so if the barking continues after you’ve spoken to your neighbours, then you should contact your local authority’s dog warden service.

Monitoring Noise Levels

Once you’ve explained the situation, you’ll usually be given a record sheet to complete in which you’ll be asked to rate the level of noise, the exact time(s) it occurs most often, for how long it persists and how it affects you and your family. If the dog warden then decides to investigate, they may want to come and install sound monitoring equipment in your home.

If that happens, and the results indicate that the law is being broken, then the dog warden is likely to pay a visit to your neighbours. Initially, this may be done with a view to informing them that there is a problem and also to check on the welfare of the dogs in question.

Possible Court Action

Issues such as the suitability of the property to keep two Labradors may also be discussed and, at this stage, they may offer training advice to the owners. However, if the noise persists after the owners have been given a deadline by which to resolve the problem, then the local authority can issue an Abatement Notice. Then, if the barking does not stop, the owner could very well be taken to court.

However, there is also the chance that your local authority might deem the barking not to be a statutory Noise Nuisance. In that event, they should be able to provide you with an information pack should you decide that you want to take the case to the Magistrate’s Court yourself.

I need some advice. We moved into our semi detached house a few months ago and the neighbours have loud barking dogs. They have pet dogs which they walk during the day but they also gave other dogs that do not get walked and live in the garden, barking throughout the day. We have heard from another neighbour that they are breeding them. They are Caucasian shepherd dogs. We are worried for when our cousins child comes round as the dogs jump on the fence and bark and growl. I'm aware this is not a banned dog, is this correct? I'm not sure what to do about the noise and about having such dangerous dogs living next to us. Somebody please help! Thank you.

We moved into our house in 3 months ago and are having terrible problems with our neighbours dogs barking. They have two pedigree dogs (male & female) which they advertise on breeding websites. People bring females to the house to mate with their male dog (in the garden...more barking, which can go on for a couple of days astheir male dog doesn't seem to understand what he should be doing) and their female has just had a litter of puppies. They have a small backyard, no grass. Every morning between 7-8am both dogs are put out for up to 1.5 hours and they bark and whine constantly to be let back in. The female also paces round and round, with her ears flat to her head, panting and looking through the patio doors at the owners, who either ignore them or shout at them to shut up. This daily disruption is driving us nuts..... Once they've been let back in, they're only let out again a couple of times during the day to do their business and they bark a couple of times, which i think is normal and not an issue. At no point since we've moved in have I ever seen our neighbours take these dogs for a walk, despite the fact we back onto a park and the park entrance is about 50ft from our house. We have spoken to them and it ended badly, with both parties shouting and he became really aggressive and threatened to shoot our cat. We've since found out a previous owner of our house complained to the council about the dogs barking several years ago, so this problem seems on-going. We've been in touch with our local environmental office who have agreed to write to them, so I'm now waiting for their reaction. I'm worried to leave the house incase the neighbour says or does something and I'm worried that, in the end, there will be nothing that can be done. I love this house, but it's totally ruined it,I feel like selling up to be honest....

SUPA - Your Question:
I live on the 6th floor. My neighbors with their 2 dogs live above me but on the left. Every bloody morning these dogs are barking with a high pitch (I suppose it's a small dogs). I am working as a chef. This job is a bit stressful and demands constant focus. Now I can't work properly because I don't have enough sleep. Every morning I can hear barking and they don't even live just above me! It's next flat on the 7th floor! Can you imagine how is it for other neighbors? I don't know what to do. Probably I will complain to the council. The thing is - even if I will speak to these people what can they do about the dogs?

Our Response:
It's really quite cruel to keep dogs on the 7th floor - it's not a case of simply letting them out quickly in the morning we assume. Start by popping up for an informal chat, they may not realise how annoying it is. If you're not comfortable with that try an informal note followed by a more formal letter. We have created a couple of templates here that we hope will help. If this is not successful, you should report it to your environmental health office.

I'm absolutely demented with my neighbours dog. Let like crying or ripping my own hair out most days. She's an old older lady really nice and pleasant has lived here many years before I have which is why I feel.I can't say anything to her. She has a rottweiler it's way too big for her she can't handle it for a start my daughter has a fear of dogs so that in the first instance doesn't sit well with us. It has went for another child who was at my door waiting for my kids to come out to play.Every single morning just after half seven she leaves the house and that's it my day is ruined no long lies for us ever. I work part time so on they days I can avoid the noise. Other days I try blank it out but it's really getting me down. It barks and howls for hours when its in on its own. I mean hours five or six sometimes more doesn't give us a break I'm losing my mind with it. We live up a close too so it echoes all over. She has no letter box and I'm not sure if it's locked in the hall cos it just seems to stand at the front door all that time her door is about two meters from my front door. Sometimes it feels like it's howling through my door. She knows it does this. There is two other neighbours who are also older women they have all lived here the same length of time as her and don't do anything about it. I think it's because they like her too much which I under and cos I do too. I'm due a baby in 7 weeks at my wits end what should I do?

Seems I'm going to have to contact the local authority about nuisance barking then. My neighbour with ajoining garden lets his 2 yorkshire terrier yappy dogs out at just after 5 every morning . Wonderful if I need a 5 o'clock wake up but trust me I don't. 6 o'clock is sufficient. It is wearing me down . They are even known to be barking very late at night God knows when the owners sleep! It is so irresponsible andrude i would never let a dog if I had one bark at these times of day.

jj - Your Question:
I've had a problem with neighbours dog consistantly barking for 4 years, I've made numerous complaints to the council, filed all the noise log sheets in and still the council didn't bother doing anything, they kept saying they have to be carefull how they handle the situation because the neighbour with the dog was foreign, however because I have more than 1 dog they told me that if my dog barks at my door any longer than 2 minutes I can receive a letter about the noise. But it's acceptavle for someones dog to bark all day outside, because they are foreign.The council tennancy agreements are not worth the paper they are written on, as they are promoting racism, by not treating everyone no matter the nationality. and from now on I'll allow my dogs to bark allday if they have a mind to, and if the council send me 1 letter I will be seeing them in court. It's not only us responsible dog owners that should have to abied by the laws in this country.

Our Response:
Have you also tried the environmental health department? They will not be involved in your council house tenancy issues and will deal purely with the noise problem. If you want to make a complaint about the way the council has handled your problem, you can try the Local Government Ombudsman

My home was so peaceful and quiet until my new neighbor got a dog who barks unnecessarily any time it is let out into the garden. I work shifts and my bedroom window is next to my neighbors garden. I've tried on several occasions to explain to my neighbor about the fact that their barking dog makes it very hard for me to sleep but to no avail. I have reported to the landlord and to the environmental protection agency and I've been given a log book to fill. I'm filling the logbooks and sending them to the land lord but the dog still barks in the garden and keeps me awake for months now. How long should this go on for?? Can I sue the landlord for ignoring my complaint??This is driving me crazy. I need help.
Sag - 2-Oct-16 @ 1:41 PM
I have 2 small dogs. One is 14 and the other almost 2. We have recently acquired new neighbours (we live in a block of 3 townhouses) whose downstairs living area has been converted into an office, with staff and all. Our walls adjoin and as much as they love our pups, and are lovely people themselves, they have now told us that on some days the dogs bark all day when we are at work and this is disturbing their ability to work. The dogs stay inside and only go outside to do their business through the doggie door. The younger dog has a high shrilled yap and the older dog is a bit deaf and senile and sometimes barks because the younger one starts yapping at every movement. What can I do to stop this - it is very difficult to prevent them from barking when noone is home. They have a multitude of toys and comfy sleeping spots and a dog walker takes them out on Mondays and Fridays for a couple of hours each time. HELP!

I have arrived home to a letter from the council telling me my dog is persistently barking for long periods. I was so upset. I thought we had a good relationship with all of our neighbours.I wish they had spoken to me. We had recently spoken to the chap who treats our lawns to say we needed to know when he was going to call so that we could ensure he didn't set the dog off as I was concerned this would be annoying. If someone is in the garden then he will go crazy! Now I am not sure if this is as a result of the gardener's unannounced visit or if this is a problem every day. My dog has barked in the night twice in the last 6 months and we beleive this may have been a prowler that set him off. I have no idea what is at the root of the complaint.My dog is a rescue with a troubled past, but even the most loved dog has to be left for short periods. I now need to get some clarification from the council as to the detail of the complaint so I know how to deal with it. I understand some people may not want to approach their neighbour, but we have always been pleasant to everyone around us and I feel so hurt that they couldn't offer me this courtesy.

I have an on going problem with a neighbour's dog that barks the whole time that it is left out in the rear garden of the premises. I have written a polite letter to the owners advising them that this is a nuisance and that either accompanying the dog I when it is in the garden or simply not shutting it outside may be the answer as it only seems to bark when it is shut out behind a closed door, ( I also have a dog and would and never shut my dog outside.....he seldom barks anyhow).The result is that the owner has become very defensive/aggressive toward me and when ever he sees me shouts abuse , this is a difficult situation that would be so easily remedied, I think that some folk 'take on' a pet dog without realising that it is a major commitment not simply a 'thing' to be shut outside whenever the owner feels so disposed.I don't want to approach the local Council but shall have no other redress unless the owner deals with this problem.It's NOT the fault of the dog after all but the fault of an irresponsible owner .

My next door neighbours are renting and acquired a dog some months into the tenancy. They left the dog outside all day, every day and it barked its head off morning, noon and night. I had a word with them and the dog only barks when they let it out so it only happens a few times a day for less than 5 mins each time. The issue is the time of the noise: the barking happens between 6.30am to 8.30am or between 10.30pm to 11.30pm. I'm so very grateful for the improvement but I now get woken up early or get woken up after I've gone to sleep. (I work two jobs so sleep is important!)Is it unreasonable to approach them again? I guess my question is more around what is acceptable noise when it comes to a dog barking? My husband thinks that that's just what dogs do!
Dita - 14-Aug-16 @ 5:47 PM
HD21 : 15 dogs is excessive. Is this amount usual or is the neighbour looking after other people's dogs/a dog walker for example?If the dogs live there permanently, how big is the garden? I have 6 small dogs, but have a 70 foot garden which is quite wide and I have no neighbour at the rear or front or one side. The only neighbour's house is separated by a garage/part of their garden, otherwise I would not have 6 dogs. If the person only has a tiny garden, as you said there is a smell, sounds like they are not collecting the dogs waste, which is a health hazard to the dogs and people with flies etc. Maybe contact your local environmental health dept to enquire about all this and see what they say.

My problem is that I've had a letter, posted by a neighbour complaining about my 2 German Shepards. We're proud dog owners and love our dogs like they're kids. They're well looked after, walked daily, friendly, non aggressive and playful. Now yes they're noisey when they bark. We let them in the garden often but always supervised. If they begin to bark, normally because the neighbours either side have dogs so if they're out at the same time they bark at each other. One of us will immediately get the dogs in the house and not let them out for a good hour or so. They will also bark at bins being moved or postmen etc. Protecting their territory basically. I can honestly say they bark on average 4-6 times per day, never longer than 30 seconds per time as we get them in. The letter stated they are causing problems as this neighbour works night shifts. Now I want my dogs to enjoy the garden, but I'm angered as not 1 neighbour has knocked on the door. If they did I'd simply ask when they worked and I'd let my dogs out around their routine. I have a good idea who it is, as they often moan when the dogs bark, or shout abuse over the fence, but they have a dog and it's their dog running out the house barking on a mission that sets my 2 off. I don't mind personally as dogs believe it or not.....bark. I know 100% that were doing nothing wrong and surely if the council investigated theyed side with us. I just wish people would talk rather than throw toys out the pram. I'm more inclined to not assist the neighbours now. What do I do to protect my rights as a dog owner?

Laulau - Your Question:
I have a neighbour oppersit me and they have three German shepherds and they bark from 6am till sometimes 11pm give or take, to add to the matter they seem to run a doggy day care so there's more dogs barking too. I live in a small cul-de-sac and have a small child and it's disturbing her sleep. It is driving me mental. any suggestions as to what I should do?

Our Response:
Yes call your local environmental health office and report it as a nuisance. They may also be able to investigate the doggy day care aspect, to see whether planning permission has been given. Usually there is a limit on the number of dogs allowed.

Jezebel- Your Question:
Why are people on here so quick to inform the council of dog barking.Why not just approach your neighbour in a nice diplomatic way (don't go round when angry) and speak to them. Most dog owners are not aware that the dog barks, howls, etc when they are out and I'm speaking from experience here. I was off sick work with Flu once and my neighbours dog kept waking me up doing absolutely crazy when the postman came and howling on and off. It was so bad, I thought the dog would break through the window and get out. At first it really annoyed me and I was going to send round my rather angry boyfriend to "have a word".I thankfully changed my mind and when I was feeling better, I went round and spoke to my neighbour, who, was absolutely mortified. He was so apologetic and was totally unaware his dog did this when he was out. He promptly dealt with the situation and on my next day off I hardly heard a thing, other than the odd bark, which to be honest you'd expect from living next door to a dog owner, but nothing like before. So why don't people just approach the neighbour instead of crying to the council and totally pissing them off in doing so?

Our Response:
Yes we always advocate going round and having a polite word with your neighbour before considering anything else. Unfortunately many of the people who resort to these pages, have already tried this and are now looking for the next step. We're really glad you've resolved your issue amicably and thanks for sharing.

My neighbours have been in there house over a year now and they leave there dog for 2 hours at a time and it howls and barks and can be heard all over my house this is everyday and on Saturdays they leave it 8 to 9 hours so I have constant Barking and howling the council have been out to have a word but it hasn't made a difference I get abuse from my neighbour saying get ear plugs and live with it, this is making me poorly because when it's constant it does get on your nerves the council want to hear him howl before they take it further but every time I ring them there inst a officer around to witness this, any advice would be grateful has its making my nerves bad

Our Response:
The council is the body that can deal with this complaint most effectively. Was it the environmental health department that you contacted? You could also consider a private legal action, but this might be costly (and difficult to prove etc). If you are unhappy with the way the council has dealt with your problem, try talking to your own ward councillor.

I live with my parents in a new build and the problem we have is that the houses seem to be made of the thinnest materials they could find. A lot of people have dogs round here and i have nothing against most of them as they are well behaved and the owners usually tell them when they are barking to stop. There is one dog that lives across from our garden and the owners let him out early in the morning everyday of the week and allow him to bark till they get back which wakes me up every morning without fail this is occurring around 7am to whenever the owners let the dog back in which can sometimes be a couple of hours and the dog will back consistently throughout this time and it's a high pitch bark that sounds like a trainer kicking a polished floor. I do go to bed daily late at night because quite often I am kept awake by a chronic illness so when I do manage to fall asleep it's short lived as the dog gets let out and I'm wide awake again. I have talked to my dad about going round and asking them politely to possibly stop there dog from barking as they may not know because I think they go out but he said that will make us look bad. I haven't had a full sleep in what I'm sure is months and don't really know what to do about it, as I have dogs at my mums I know that they can be trained not to bark and I don't want to make a formal complaint as it seems a bit unnecessary so I'm thinking about just posting a note through their letterbox and hoping that they will stop his constant barking !

I live in a rented house in a lovely cul de sac of eight houses. We chose it because it's a nice place to bring up children. I work as a child minder and as a result have at the most three parents drop children off and collect from me.One of my neighbours has become quite nasty, pointing out that she paid a lot of money for her home and that this us a private road and a business should not be operated from here. I do leave space on my driveway for my parents. Unfortunately sometimes there are lots of cars in the road and it all becomes cluttered. I have asked my parents to be considerate , not to speed or block people's drives. I think she's just being mean. She also moans about children playing outside, I have no idea who some of them are as they are nothing to do with me but it all started when I moved in apparently.

Hi, we have 3 dogs, an old lab cross (17yrs) and 2 Jack Russel cross (5 yrs). I have lived in my semi detached 'council' house since July. My adjoining neighbour banged on my front door tonight. All dogs barked. I answered it, they shut up. My neighbour said "Exactly, that's what I'm here for. My husband is on nights and he hardly got any sleep today because they've been barking all day." I explained that I have had a few deliveries today, pre Christmas etc. She said "Well I'm the same as him I can't tolerate dogs barking all the time!" I said I was sorry and would try to keep them in the kitchen in the day time. Then she said it happens at 5am also. Well, my son gets up for work at 5am! I have asked him and the dogs don't even flinch when he gets up! Also if they did I would soon tell them to shut up as I need my sleep too!! I am really upset about this, and I am possibly reading too much into it because I have depression, long story. I also have a daughter with a rare chromosome disorder and severe learning disabilities. I can honestly say they only bark when someone comes to the door. Please someone give me some advice, I thought we'd be happy here but my stomach feels so heavy and my head is all over the place. Oh and if I go out, my dogs come too. They are never home alone! Help!!

I live in mid terrace. No tennent has stayed here more than 6 months. I can hear neighbours one side from 4 in morning when he goes to work til 2 the next morning when she goes to bed. The yappy dog gets put outside from 6-9 even morning 7 days a week. And the is shut outside upto 6 hours a day. The people the other side of them had to sell their house because of the noise. I'm the only one the neighbours still talk to. He's a very big nasty frightening man. I sent an anonymous letter but nothing changed. I spoke to environmental health people but I can't put in an anonymous complaint. I have mental health problems and would be too scared to tell them my name and address but withOving being the only choice I know I'll be back in hospital soon cos moving puts my health back months.

Our Response:
Environmental health is your best option to get anything done about the noise, but you cannot complain anonymously. Environmental Health will however, attempt to ensure your confidentiality.

I have mental health problems and would be too scared to tell them my name and address but withOving being the only choice I know I'll be back in hospital soon cos moving puts my health back months.
