In celebration of National Good Neighbor Day, we are rerunning one of our most popular posts on being a good neighbor. Enjoy!
Are you a good pet neighbor? There are a few common courtesies that will keep you from being “that person with the dogs/cats.”
• Do not let your pet roam free. Pets that are loose risk being injured/killed by a car or angry neighbor.
• If your dog takes care of its business in the neighbor’s yard, you must pick it up. This is a major complaint in neighborhoods and apartment complexes.
• Don’t allow your cat to use the neighbor’s garden as its litter box.
• Even if your dog’s voice is music to your ears, the neighbors don’t share the joy. Do not allow incessant barking.
• Never assume that other dog/cat walkers want their pet to mingle with yours. Don’t let your pet approach another animal without the owner’s permission.
We are all ambassadors for our four-legged friends. If they are frowned upon by the neighbors, it is ultimately our own fault. By following the “Big 5” your pet will be a welcomed addition to any neighborhood.
