What constitutes a barking dog?

Continued and repeated barking that disturbs the peace of a neighborhood is a violation. Of course, we recognize that dogs will bark when they see something or someone, and we do look for a cause of the barking. Sugar Hill Municipal Code Article II Sec. 10-32 addresses barking dogs in the Nuisance section as any “animal which excessively makes disturbing noises including, but not limited to, continued and repeated howling, barking, disturbance or discomfort to neighbors or others in close proximity to the premises where the animal is kept.”
