Excessive barking is a nuisance to neighbours and should be addressed.
Not only is it against the law to allow your dog to wander, pets wandering at large can pose a serious public health and safety risk.
Under the Animal Management (Cats & Dogs) Act 2008 dogs identified as restricted are required to have a permit and registration. If you are a victim of a dog attack contact Council immediately.
Dog owners must take responsibility for how their dogs behave in the community. Every dog can bite for any reason.
