Hi,

People in my area leave their dogs out all night and they bark non-stop. What can I do?

Thanks

You have a couple of options. We like to recommend that citizens contact their neighbors and see if a reasonable solution can be reached. If that fails, or if you are uncomfortable doing that, call police communications at 972.292.6010 while the barking is going on. An officer will be dispatched. An officer must be able to witness the barking in order to take action.
During the workday, animal control may be contacted at 972.292.5303 and they will investigate as well.

As a final alternative, residents can file a complaint in municipal court. This is rarely necessary, but there have been occasions where an officer has not witnessed the barking, thus can't take corrective action.

***What are the actual city laws about this situation?

Is there a certain time that they have to keep their dogs from barking nonstop outside? Maybe 8 pm to 8 am or something like that? I'd like to know what the deal is before I talk to the one couple who always have their dog out there barking.
