Halifax dogs are under scrutiny for barking at a dog park.
The municipality recently erected a sign at the off-leash area of Shubie Park asking pet owners to "control your dog's barking" or take them elsewhere.
The move raised the ire of critics who argued that in dog parks, dogs should be allowed to be dogs.
"The Mime for Canines class I am offering is almost fully booked," one Twitter user, Andy Bowers, joked on Tuesday while linking to a CTV Atlantic story.
But city spokesperson Tiffany Chase says the city had received a number of complaints from homeowners who live across a small lake from the Dartmouth park.
Chase says the signs appear to be working, but if the complaints resume the city would have to look at moving the off-leash area elsewhere.
