Anchorage puts bite on barking dogs

By Associated Press 10:50 AM December 30, 2013

Previously, dogs could bark up to 7 minutes during the day before animal control officers would consider a complaint.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – A new Anchorage law is putting the bite on barking dogs.

The Anchorage Daily News reports (http://is.gd/BY33OI) the assembly last week reduced the amount of time a dog can bark within city limits to give shift workers sleeping during the day a break.

Previously, dogs could bark up to 7 minutes during the day before animal control officers would consider a complaint. Now, the time has been reduced to 5 minutes of barking without the dog falling silent for at least 60 seconds.

The first complaint gets the animal owner a letter. A second complaint comes with a fine, ranging from $50 to $400 depending on if officers have had complaints about the same animal owner before.
