Responsible Pet Owners Curb Excessive Barking

Sometimes pet owners are not aware that their dog or cat is disturbing others. When possible, neighbours are encouraged to speak to each other in a respectful manner. If speaking with the pet owner is not successful or not possible, residents can make a complaint to Greater Sudbury By-law Compliance and Enforcement.

If an investigation shows that excessive noise is ongoing and not an occasional occurrence, the pet owner will be informed of the complaint. The name of the person submitting the complaint will remain confidential, unless the complainant is required to testify as a witness in court.

Pet owners receiving their first complaint will have a reasonable chance to resolve unwanted noise. Many excellent resources are available to help pet owners, including local classes, trainers, books and online education.

If excessive noise continues, the pet owner may face a fine of up to $5,000 under City of Greater Sudbury By-law 2002-285 to Regulate the Keeping of Animals and the Registration of Dogs and Cats.
