What can I do about my neighbor's barking dog?

If you are comfortable, speak with your neighbor. Some pet owners may not be aware that their neighbors can hear their dog barking. If it continues to be an issue, or if you do not feel comfortable speaking with your neighbor, contact Animal Control at 319.248.1800.

According to City Code (Code of Ordinances, 55.10), a noisy animal is considered a nuisance if it barks, bays, howls, or cries continuously for ten minutes or barks intermittently for a half hour or more, and the sound is audible across a residential boundary.
