Services we offer
Council considers all reports of dog attacks seriously and where the attacking dog is still present, will respond as soon as possible.
If the dog attack has occurred previously, a Community Safety Inspector will respond on the next business day.
Council will require the following information:
All of the complainant's and witness' details will remain confidential.
Dogs can create an annoyance or nuisance to nearby neighbours by barking. When this situation occurs, it is primarily a dispute between two individuals and may be resolved by having a conversation with the owner of the barking dog to make them aware of the issue.
To assist you, please refer to the below letter, that can be used, should you wish to make contact with your neighbour.
Many times dog owners are unaware their pet is causing a problem to their neighbours and are happy to put measures in place to reduce the barking when alerted to the issue.
The City of Marion may intervene in some circumstances where evidence supplied by the person affected by the barking indicates a need for Council assistance.
In these circumstances we are able to work with the dog owner to provide advice as to what measures would best reduce barking levels.
