LOS ANGELES -- Barking dogs can lead to a hefty fine in Los Angeles.

The City Council on Tuesday approved an ordinance that fines owners of excessively barking dogs $250 for a first offense, $500 for a second and $1,000 for a third if a Department of Animal Services hearing officer decides the pooch is barking too much.

The ordinance is expected to get Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's signature. It would go into effect before the end of the year.
