Council

2 Small Street

SUBURB 2000

8 December 20xx

Dear Sir or Madam

I am writing to respond to council's notice of intention to issue a nuisance order dated 5 December 20xx which I received on 7 December 20xx.

I have two pet dogs. They are both 6 years old and I have had them since they were puppies.

Since I first received complaints from my neighbour at 2 Big Street in October 20xx, I have taken steps to stop my dogs barking.

  1. I employed a dog trainer, Ms Molly Stephens of Stop the Bark Pty Ltd to help me. I have attached a copy of her report recommending steps to reduce barking. I have done all the things recommended in the report as listed below.
  2. My dogs are regularly exercised. I have taken them for a run in an off lease dog park mornings and evenings every day.
  3. I have arranged for a dog walking service to come to my house twice a week to walk my dogs during the middle of the day while I am at work.
  4. I have provided my dogs with treats and toys to keep them occupied while I am at work.

I have asked my neighbour at 2 Big Street to monitor the noise since making these changes and she has reported to me that the barking is much reduced. I have received no complaints from any neighbours since making these changes.

I feel that these measures mean that my dogs will not cause a nuisance to any neighbours.

 

Regards,


Frank Melman
