All the towns have an ordinance against barking dogs. In Sunbury, the time is 10 minutes.

As the city looks for more revenue- you can expect more fines.

What to do?

Jot down the day and time the nuisance dog barks. Then after you have a list- make the report. It helps also to get it on tape.

I can not think of any fines in PA that are cheap.

There are some things that the only thing a person understands is a fine.

I see more people now have dogs. A huge increase in Sunbury. But with that- irresponsible owners.

Intermittent barking for a longer time period is against the ordinance.

Two of my neighbors- make that 3- their dogs are no problem. But 2 others ARE.

I have lived in several towns with such ordinances but they are rarely enforced. One neighbor had dogs that they left outside all day, and would bark for hours NON STOP. Some of us neighbors would take turns calling the cops. Some times the dogs would magically shut up when the cop showed up, and other times the cop would talk to the people about it, but as soon as he left the dogs started up again. That neighborhood was a living hell simply because of those people. I couldn't even have a BBQ in my back yard because the dogs would bark at my guests the whole time.

I live in the north Philadelphia area i live in between of two house's were my awesome neighbors have dog's the one on my right side have two little dog's who bark the whole entire day and night those dogs bark at anything.

Is scary I'll try to talk to that neighbor but nothing happens can't use my back yard cause at my right there's two dogs barking at us with no end.
And then at my left is a pitbull trying to jump the fence and bite whoever is at my yard.

This won't be enforced when Sunbury has other more important issues like those Cameras $$$ they installed that nobody knows how to use. Also where does fart pipes and trucks figure into the equation?
