GOOD NEIGHBOR |  Whether he is known to your neighbors as ‘man’s best friend’ or the ‘beast next door’ is up to you–to practice proper dog ownership etiquette is to show consideration for the needs and feelings of those living around you.⁠
.⁠
If you are blessed with some yard space, allow your dog the freedom to explore outdoors without becoming a danger to himself or a nuisance to others by installing a wood fence Avoiding the installation of a fence by confining your dog to the indoors isn’t solution, especially if you own a large or active breed. ⁠
.⁠
Dogs require regular exercise and mental stimulation, without which they usually release pent up energy through chewing, digging and, the most aggravating to your neighbors, barking. ⁠
.⁠
Make the daily walk a pleasant experience for you, your dog and those with whom you will come into contact. Always leash your dog when walking, and maintain control of him at all times. Only allow him to greet strangers if they initiate contact, especially if they too are walking a dog. ⁠
⁠
⁠.⁠
Lastly, always clean up after your dog. Bring along several bags, scoop the poop no matter what, and never permit your dog to relieve himself on personal property, such as car tires, bicycles or children’s toys.⁠
Note that your dog’s need for adequate attention remains even when your schedule prohibits. If you must be away from home for extended periods of time, consider employing a trained and evaluated dog walker or sitter. They’ll keep your dog safe and allow your dog the exercise he needs in order to burn off some energy.⁠
⁠
Both your neighbors and your dog will appreciate your efforts to abide by proper dog ownership etiquette. Do so to ensure healthy neighborhood relationships and a happy dog.⁠
