Citizens are often unaware that their dogs bark for extended periods of time while they are away from home. The City of Poway contracts with the San Diego Humane Society for animal control and dog barking complaints. Please call 619-299-7012 and leave your full name, address, address of the dog(s) and basic details about the complaint on the message line. An Animal Control Officer will notify the owners in writing about the barking.
Please understand that a barking dog is not necessarily a violation of the Poway Municipal Code and that calmly discussing a barking dog problem with your neighbor is often the best way to handle the situation.
