How do I report a barking dog?

Animal noise, especially barking dogs, is a common problem. Pierce County’s goal is to resolve the problem by encouraging neighbors to work together to find a reasonable solution. 

Communicate With the Animal Owner

Talk to the animal owner about the problem. Sometimes owners are not aware of the problem, especially when they are not home. You may want to share some helpful tips from The Humane Society with your neighbor.

Make a Complaint

Complaints can be submitted by telephone, 253-798-PETS (7387) or by using the online form. This will allow Pierce County Animal Control to send a warning letter and regulations to the animal owner, making them fully aware of the problem.
