Barking Dogs


The City has recently received multiple complaints of dogs barking excessively, disturbing surrounding neighbors. This is classified as “unreasonable noise,” which is not permitted per Halsey Municipal Code 10.05.030.

If you are experiencing this issue, the first step may be a polite conversation with the dog owner. Often the barking is happening while the owner is away from home, so they may be unaware of the situation. If you are uncomfortable speaking with the dog owner directly, you may contact Linn County Animal Control at 541.967.3925. Please be ready to provide the street address for the residence you are calling about, as well as details regarding time of occurrence, duration, and audio or video if possible.
