Many pet owners are not aware that their pet is causing a disturbance when they are not home. Be a responsible pet owner.
The Animal Care and Control Unit will focus on educating the pet owner on the dog's behavior and ways to change the behavior. However, if noise complaints become excessive at an address, the pet owner can face a misdemeanor criminal citation.
(City Ordinance Sec. 10-79.)
