I’ve posted about dog theft, now another topic that I would like to disscuss is neighbors trying to hurt your pets . Sometimes we do not really know who we live beside, some people are just ignorant and don’t care about anyone but themselves. I’ve faced this problem head on and it’s horrible, makes me sick to think about. After doing some research I’ve found out I’m not alone and wanted to address it because more people are probably going through it as I’m writing this post. Picture this, you are living in a house with a neighbor that hates dogs so they put dangers in your yard hoping your dog eats them, glass, chicken bones, auluminum foil, and cigarette butts. What are you to do, call the cops or confront them ?
Calling the cops – When you call the cops sadly they will not do anything unless you have evidence, so get yourself a video camera and if you see them doing anything get them on tape. Another idea I suggest is getting a security system for the outside of your house, I’m not saying go out and spend 1,000 dollars. There is an app availiable on google play that turns your old phones into security devices called ” Home Security by Alfred Labs Inc.’ It’s free, but you can pay for a more advanced version.
Confronting them – Neighbor fueds can be started over this, personal experience recently has told me confronting neighbors can be dangerous. Some neighbors are just rude, ignorant, and want the drama. For example, I simply asked a neighbor to please stop throwing chicken bones in my yard and was threatened, which has turned into harassment, loud parties, and much much more that can spiral out of control.
You are not alone in this situation, I’m going through it also with young kids that like the drama. Sad thing is Lilly hasn’t done anything to anyone, she’s always on a leash and doesn’t even go in the neighbors yards. Everyone on my block loves her and says how beautiful she is, and I’ve never had any complaints. It’s sad that she can’t even go in her own backyard because I’m scared they might put something toxic hidden somewhere.
Are you going through the same thing or had to move because of the situation? Comment below with your story.
