Gotta Love Them Red Dogs!
Well, here is the drill. We had new people move in behind us (which I don't mind)-- However, they have 5 of the loudest kids I could ever imagine. This is not a huge deal because it is just during the day but it is obnoxious at times. My problem is coming in with the dogs though, they are so used to no neighbors besides older couples and quiet living. I have noticed on a few occasions when the kids are outside O'Malley (my APBT) and Ember (Black Labrador) flip out-barking,running fence line, and even a few growls. Now, I have NEVER had either of my dogs show ANY aggression to kids other than this. We have friends with kids that my dogs allow to crawl all over them and run with them in the yard. How should I go about correcting this? I don't want to make it seem like punishment for loud noise reaction in general but rather pacing the fence acting a fool with kids present....ya know? I have been placing them in thier kennel for now but why should they be confined to a kennel when they have an entire huge fenced yard to run?!
