When can you let your dog roam the house?
Generally the dog should be fully mature (1–2 years old), and it’s a process. Start by leaving the dog loose in a small area for a very short period of time. If the dog gets into stuff, he’s not ready. If he behaves, very slowly increase the time he’s allowed out and the amount of space he has to roam.
How do you keep your neighbor’s dog off your property?
How to Keep a Neighbor’s Dog Away From Your Yard

- Surround your perimeter with sturdy thorny or prickly plants or shrubs, which add value to your property.
Is it OK to let my dog roam the house at night?
As far as he’s concerned, no danger will sneak into his house at night. My dogs are not allowed to roam the house at night until they are well-trained, well-behaved and mentally mature (usually 2 to 3 years of age). This way the dog can sleep in his crate if he wishes or he can move around the bedroom.
Is it a problem to have a Pitbull neighbor?
Not that it’s a problem to have a pit bull neighbor, but your neighbor doesn’t seem to realize the importance of teaching a dog to come when called and keeping the dog confined to his or her property when not on a leash. Should you be afraid of the dog because it’s a pit bull? No.
Can I report my neighbors dog for running at large?
Practically all communities have leash laws and statutes that prohibit allowing dogs to run at-large. Roaming dogs of any breed can be both a health and a safety hazard. So, if your neighbor refuses to be responsible, don’t hesitate to report him. In most cases, you can do so anonymously.
Are pit bulls friendly with other dogs?
But, it’s a good idea to exercise the same caution you would around any dog that you don’t know very well. Unless they have the misfortune to be owned by someone who wants a mean dog, pit bulls are typically people-friendly. They may, however, have a tendency to behave aggressively towards other dogs and domestic animals.
