Barking Dogs Information Night

Posted on: 24.08.2018

Wollondilly Shire Council is hosting an information session to help residents address the problem of barking dogs. A professional in the field of canine behaviour will provide information about:

  • Why dogs bark
  • How to determine the extent of barking
  • Solutions to barking
  • How barking dogs can be investigated by Council

Council routinely receives reports of nuisance barking dogs within the Shire and is taking a proactive approach to the issue by holding this event.

The session is geared to provide practical solutions to address barking dog issues for pet owners, as well as those who are impacted by this behavior.

Acting Compliance Manager David Savage said, “Dog barking can be very disruptive to neighbours and can impact greatly on people’s enjoyment of their homes.”

“Excessive barking generally occurs for many reasons such as boredom or lack of attention, which can be alleviated with the correct training,” he said.

The information night will be held on Tuesday 25 September 2018 between 6.30pm and 8pm at Wollondilly Shire Council Administration Building, 62-64 Menangle Street, Picton.

If you would like further information or would like to book a place, please email council@wollondilly.nsw.gov.au or call 4677 1100 by 11 September.
