Powis Circle in Kittybrewster, Great Northern Road, Mastrick Drive and Mastrick Junction were also serial offenders.

An Aberdeen City Council spokesman described the action taken when residents raise the noise complaints to the council.

He said: “We contact the complainant to discuss the complaint and advise on the actions the dog wardens may take.

“Where appropriate, contacting the dog owner to advise that complaint has been made and the actions that may be taken to minimise annoyance to neighbours.

“Liaising with other council services and agencies where appropriate and follow-up visits where appropriate.

“Leaflets and supporting information are provided to complainants and dog owners where appropriate.”
