roaming freely in the backyard. does that mean he's
going to be in the yard unattended? it might be better
for you and your dog if start talking to your neighbor. this way
you can intorduce your dog to your neighbor. i made sure my neighbors knew my pup and my pup knew them. many times called my neighbors
to come outside when my pup was in the yard. i asked my neighbors
to play and to treat my pup. now when my nieghbors are in their yard
and my dog is out there's no barking. my dog is 3 years old and my neighbors still play with him.
if you're not going to talk to the neighbor i think
you should make it a point when the neighbor is outside
to come outside with the pup. if you're outside with the pup
you can make the necessary corrections. who knows, your
pup might not be aggressive towards the neighbor whether he meets
her or not.
I want my GSD to roam freedly in the fenced in backyard but I don't want him barking his head off everytime my neighbor walks outside the house ( neighbor is old and will most likely call the police )
