And, what to do about a problem animal in our neighborhood
We welcome pets at Frisco Ridge. Cats, dogs, guinea pigs and hamsters add to the quality of our lives and their love and loyalty make us happy. There are very few rules pertaining to pet ownership at Frisco Ridge.
Basically, each residence is limited to two cats, dogs or similar domestic animals. We simply ask that you make sure your pet(s) is/are not a nuisance to your neighbors. If your dog is barking repeatedly, please bring it inside. You never know what hours a neighbor works and sleeps.
Keep your pets in a fenced-in area so they cannot roam the neighborhood. When you take them for a walk, please keep them on a leash. Your dog may seem friendly and unthreatening to you, but it may be frightening to a child or someone who has had a bad experience with a dog in the past. Please practice common courtesy. And finally, commercial breeding is not allowed.

What to Do if Your Neighbor’s Dog Keeps Barking First, we recommend speaking to your neighbor about it: perhaps they aren’t paying attention. If it continues, document the dates and times. Then report it to the Yukon Police Dept by calling their NON-emergency number: 405.354.2553. The police will give a warning and eventually fines and restrictions may be imposed. They take it pretty seriously.
