A new law on Kauai allows enforcement officers to fine dog owners who don't control their dogs from incessant barking.

Kauai officials say if an enforcement officer observes excessive barking, the dog owner will be issued a warning and an educational packet on how to train dogs to be quiet.

The owner has up to 10 days to remedy the nuisance or challenge the claim.

If the problem is not fixed, the owner may be cited $35.

A similar law was repealed last year after some council members said it violated due process by allowing dog owners to be cited without verification of allegations.
