Councils tabbed in pink have allowed barking complaints to remain unresolved for up to six years and more
despite the potent provisions of the Dog Control Act that generally permit resolution within an hour.
Those contemplating the lodgement of barking complaints, formal or informal, are warned that it's quite
common for the complainant to be treated as the nuisance and not the offender.
Be warned also that councils have no sympathy for your suffering. Their common view is that if you don't like
the din then you should move out.
