Please Stop Letting Your Dogs Continue To Bark
Being a pet sitter I am an early riser, so it does not really affect me however, my husband works all week and would love to sleep-in on the weekends. Also, my neighbor’s that work all week long, would appreciate the sleep-in. There is a dog in our neighborhood that barks EVERY morning from 6:00am until about 8:00am. I have 3 dogs of my own and I do know that dogs need to go out and do their business first thing in the morning, but BRING THEM BACK IN. Have some courtesy for your neighbors. It is unfair to your neighbors to be woken up on the weekends to a barking dog.
As a pet sitter I also have come across many dogs that do bark when they go out. To help relieve this go out back with your dog and stand there and watch them to make sure they did their business and then BRING THEM BACK IN. It is not a difficult thing to do. It is out of respect to the ones around you.
Another thing you can do is try to take them for a walk instead of letting them out back to bark and wake your neighbor.
I hope this blog helps to open the eyes of the people who let their dogs out to bark in the wee hours of the morning. It is just not right.
