If attempts to resolve the problem through talking to the dog owner are unsuccessful, mediation is a worthy next step. It is a good alternative to a lengthy investigation and legal action, and helps foster a good relationship between neighbours.

The Victorian Government’s Dispute Settlement Centre provides a free and confidential mediation service for people to deal with dispute or conflict.
