We live in Crystal Ridge and have a huge issue with barking dogs at night and during the day when dogs are left outside all day.  What can we do about it?

Since we are within the city limits of Puyallup, the Puyallup city code covers your situation:
    6.08.150 Keeping noisy dog. The keeping or harboring of any dog or dogs which by habitual howling or barking unreasonably annoy, disturb, or interfere with the comfort, repose, health or safety of any person is declared a nuisance. (Ord. 3029  1, 2013; Ord. 1190 1(n), 1953).
