Weary over barking dogs in your neighborhood? The fastest resolve is to contact the Animal Shelter and file a complaint @ (951) 674-0618. Their standard procedure is three visits for repeated calls, and on the fourth visit, animal control will issue a public nuisance petition to the neighborhood. Once the petition is signed and returned, a public nuisance hearing is scheduled at the shelter. Evidence may be submitted in the form of video or audio recordings, or logs of barking activity. If the dog is deemed a nuisance, they may have to wear a bark collar, or bark muzzle. The goal of animal control is not to remove a dog, it's an attempt to educate the owner. If the problem persists, the dog owner could be summoned to court and the dog removed from the home. Tips for dog owners; lots of exercise, walks, leaving a television on when not at home, and asking your neighbors not to feed your dog through the fence. It only trains the dog to bark for food. Calls are taken Monday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Talking to neighbors is a good first step before resorting to animal control.
