Dogs are more than simply pets. They become a member of the family. This is why they are often referred to as “fur babies.” Unfortunately, the time you are given with your dog is often way to short, but there are ways in which you can help your pet live a longer, healthier, and happier […]
This week has been miserable so far. Yes, I am very happy that our noisy neighbors probably transferred to a different room not adjacent to ours from another house because I do not hear their loud voices anymore.
It had been bliss lately. But since these days the sun rises so early in the morning, the neighbor’s dog on the other side of my wife’s house barks loud around 5:30am. Yep, very consistent.
Hence, I tend to wake up around this time. I also sleep late so what is the result? Oh man … tired eyes. Wish it would rain at least from 6am-8am. That would certainly drown the loud barks every early morning.
While the rainy season is looming, there does not seem to be any indication that it will rain consistently as it has not happened consecutively … yet. Brief splashes of rainfall were experienced for a few minutes then those were it.
I figure this week will be a long week. I hope I can sleep early tonight but I am not getting my hopes us since I tend to sleep late. I just hope tomorrow won’t be another agonizing sleepless experience for me.
Pets can get stressed when their environment changes, which it often does during the holiday season when you have lots of family gatherings or unfamiliar guests in and out of your home for holiday get-togethers or even something as small as a change in their meal times or general schedule.
If you think your dog does not do this, then I guess you are lucky because in my experience, most of my dogs tend to stay with me and cuddle up close whenever they are in new territory. It takes some time before they get acclimated to their environment.
It could also be that your pet is stressed from holiday travel like long car rides, crate travel during flying or from being left at home for longer periods of time while the family is traveling. All of this change causes stress for your pet and triggers pets to misbehave.
