Dogs that bark incessantly could be bored. Owners should try to relieve the dog’s boredom by:
taking it for regular walks
providing chew toys and bones
change the position of the kennel, etc.
If your dog barks as a result of separation anxiety (if it suffers when separated from the owner) then consider: leaving the radio or television on when you are away to distract the dog or contact an animal behaviourist.
Perseverance does pay off, however, if your dog does not respond to your attempts to quieten it, contact our Enforcement Officers for help and advice.
