A complaint must be signed by neighbors within a realistic distance of the pet owner. If the dog owner still does not do something about the barking, they may have to appear in court.

Remember, if your dog is doing the barking; avoid unpleasantness for yourself and for your neighbors with some sensible training for your dog.

In addition, if you are unlucky enough to be the neighbor of a barking dog, remember that you can do something about it. There ought to be a law, and there is!
