The ultimate outcome of these disputes is that the court may order the removal of your dogs from your premises or order their destruction.
Disputes regarding barking dogs can be very costly to litigate and therefore it is important to obtain advice regarding allegations that your dog barks excessively well before the council issues any charges against you.
If you contact Melke Legal before the prosecutions are issued, action can be taken to either best prepare your defence to these prosecutions or reduce the barking so as to avoid a prosecution. It is usually much more difficult to defend these cases if the prosecution has been commenced before you consult Brett Melke.
However, Melke Legal is experienced in the kind of arguments that can be raised to defend charges involving barking dogs and in what actions can be taken even after the issuing of charges to either defend the charges or reduce the implications of a finding of guilt.
Often alternative orders can be negotiated instead of destruction or removal of the allegedly barking dogs.
