Important Tips for Leaving Your Dog Home Alone

Then here are some tips to help. When we have time off, our pets receive a lot of extra attention, and when that goes away, it can cause behavior problems – like chewing and excessive barking. So, here are a few tips for helping your dog re-adjust, courtesy of Bark Busters: • Before you leave for the day, make a low growling sound. This may sound strange, but your dog will actually be relaxed by your voice. In the wild, the pack leader growls when they leave, which indicates theyll return soon. • Make sure your dog has its own shelter. This is about more than keeping your pet out of the rain. Having a crate, dog bed, or dog house is comforting to an animal – even when the weathers good. • Make sure they have things to do. Dogs love toys, but they get used to them quickly. Try using different ones for different days so your pet always has something new. If your dog spends time outside, scatter some food around the yard. Since dogs are natural foragers, looking for the treats will keep them occupied for hours. • Ignore your dog for a few minutes when you come home. Most dogs are so happy to see their owners that they lose control. That leads to unwanted behaviors like jumping, barking, and even playful nipping.To curb this behavior, wait until your dog settles down before you reward him with attention.

How do you confront a neighbor with an agressive dog?

There is suppose to be a leash law in my town, but the town has a population of about 200 people and no police department. The next biggest town has an animal control officer, but they will not come to our town unless it is a rabid animal or someone has been attacked. My son came back from the bus stop this morning and was in tears saying that a dog was growling at him and trying to bite him. I stopped getting ready for work and walked with him down the road. It was a big Bulldog type dog and it was slowly circling us and growling the whole time. I just made sure that neither of us made any sudden moves. I am trying to find out who the dog belongs too, and when I do I want to confront them about this dog. Since there is a leash law they are not suppose to let their dog roam free, but with no animal control I feel like the dog would actually have to bite someone before the local sheriffs department would do anything. How do I confront the owner when I find them?
Here is the problem with our mayor and city councel: We have had issues in this small town with aggressive animals, and have contacted the mayor, who happens to go to our church. They say they can’t do anything, because there is no animal control or police department in our town. The local sheriffs department won’t do anything either, as they say the animal has to actually injure someone. Stupid, I know. They have told me that if a stray dog or a dog owned by a neighbor gets in my yard, then I have the right to defend myself, my family and property, but just not to get caught firing a gun in town. Ignorant in my opinion, but since I and other neighbors have talked to them in the past numerous times about different "vicious" dogs, we know this is their stand on this issue.
