What can the officer and the SPCA do to solve this?

Typically, letting the dog's owner know that their pet is causing problems encourages the owner to take some action to alleviate the noise. Education about remedies can be helpful (n0-bark collars, etc.)

If all else fails, the officer or the SPCA can issue a citation.

We have also had a problem with barking dogs at night especially when the owners are away....They were not receptive to the 'no-bark'collar idea. Also these large dogs get out and roam the neighbor freely. This could present a danger to a child or even an adult. Does Frisco have a leash law? I've been told that we do not have an animal control department. When an officer responded to the call, we we told that he really couldn't do anything about the dog being out. What is our course of action? Thank you for your response.

The City contracts with the SPCA for animal control services. They are on-call for after hours assistance at the discretion of the police supervisor on duty.

Yes, Frisco does have a leash law and the owners can be cited for violations.

Please call Captain John Bruce at 972.335.5502 to discuss your specific issue or email him at
