How to be a Good Pet Neighbor

Hidey Ho Neighbor!


It is important to be a good pet neighbor.  Here are a few dog to dog reminders.
1.   Don’t be “that” dog that barks continually.
2.   If you must use the neighbor’s yard for a relief station, make sure your human bags the evidence.
3.   If you go for a walk, always put your person on a leash.  Just click one end to your collar and show them how to hold onto the loopy handle.
4.   Never chase cars, bikes, or joggers.  They can all turn vicious and hurt you.
5.   Neighborhood romances never work out.  Don’t be a Mountie.

  6. We enjoy doing our hunting call howls for our neighbors now and then, but they never last more than a few minutes. As for romance, I never get involved with neighbors, but my boy crazy sisters are always having love affairs with the boys around here. They break hearts left and right. Most of their boy toys are in fenced yards so they kiss between the chain links...so sick! I stay to myself and ignore that behavior, embarrassing!

  13. Great tips! I find it difficult when I have more than one biped with me, but the ones not attached to me usually keep close to the others and if they wander off they come back again.

  17. Love that photo!
    And, oh, I do have to remind my two boys not to be a Mountie. They mostly practice on their sister -- and she gives them a good dose of what for in return.

  21. We try to be good neighbors, we stay in our own yard and if Bailey gets barking too much, Mom makes him come inthe house. But we have some neighbors that irritate us - our back yard neighbor never cleans up after their dog and it is disgusting along the fence line. And we have some new young labs, they live up the road aways, that seem to get to run free all they want

  23. We've got some neighbors who really need to read your post. The barking is ridiculous. They are forever letting the dogs out at all hours of the night and early morning and they must forget their out there. so annoying and more than that - so unfair to the dogs. We would love to be neighbors with Bentley.

  43. Can you tell Mauja and Atka that the barking thing doesn't make them a good pet neighbor? They'll tell you it's the nature of their breed, but I make them come inside ;)

  44. Sometimes I'm bad with #1 and #5, though to be fair I have one next door neighbor who is worse at #1, and the other next door neighbor who is bad at #2... :/ This is a good list for a code, though. *wags* - Gilligan from WagsAhoy.com
