Steps to Tackle Antisocial Dog Barking

If you are experiencing problems with noisy dogs in the neighbourhood, here is some practical advice to help you.

Firstly, you should try resolving your complaint by talking to your neighbour to make them aware of the problem.  An informal approach is usually preferable, as involving East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) can sometimes damage relations with your neighbours.  A letter template is available to download from the ERYC website if you are more comfortable with that.

If you do want to complain to ERYC, you can report a barking dog online on the ERYC website or by calling ERYC on 01482 396301 with the details of your complaint, and somebody will be able to give you further advice. A noise nuisance diary sheet will need to be sent to you and returned completed in order to investigate your complaint.
