Under Article 694 of the New Civil Code, an act, omission, establishment, business, condition of property or anything else that “annoys or offends the senses” is a nuisance, and under Article 695, a public nuisance affects a community or neighborhood or any considerable number of persons.

Animal Laws - Barking Dogs

Whether you love dogs or can’t stand them, we all have to accept that fact. In suburban neighborhoods especially, dog barking can be as inevitable as road noise in homes near a highway. However, if your neighbor’s dog barks incessantly every time you step into your yard or howls all night, to the point that it affects your quality of life, you don’t have to just grin and bear it.
After all, you did not make the decision to adopt it and fail to house train the dog.

Dogs Are Very Social Animals and need regular interaction. Some dogs howl because they’re lonely, especially if they’re left alone or kept outside for many hours at a time.

    Where did you get this? I couldnt find it anywhere else.other than here.

  2. Hi! Good day! My neighbor’s dogs are continously barking for hours especially at night. I wanted to file a complaint. We don’t want to talk to our neighbors and confront because we are not in good terms. They are always noisy because their house is like a compound, living 10 families more or less. Please help me what to do. What law is applicable to them and I want them to be punished. I don’t believe that the barangay will help us or handle this issue. Please help me. Thank you.
