We do not practice dog barking claims. The information is provided here to be helpful. We get calls from Perris residents all the time about  barking dogs.

The City of Perris Municipal Code regarding Stray or Barking Dogs:

8.08.320 - Loud animals.


It is unlawful for any person to keep or allow to be kept or suffer or permit any animal to remain upon the premises under the control of such person when such animal habitually barks, whines or makes loud or unusual noises in such a manner as to disturb the peace and quiet of the neighbors surrounding or in the vicinity of such premises, or whose barking or howling or other sound or cry interferes with any person of ordinary sensitivity in the reasonable and comfortable enjoyment of life and property.
