Teacup, a two-year-old mixed breed dog, keeps barking whenever her owner Tom is away at work. Tom recently transferred into a new house with a spacious fenced-in backyard. At this time, as Teacup would normally do while Tom is not around , she would not stop from barking. The barking dog progressed so badly that neighbors in his apartment building regularly complained, forcing Tom to find a new place of his own. However, Teacup continues to bark and Tom is worried about the complaints of his new neighbors. Teacup does not bark while Tom is home, so he must look for a way to stop the dog barking while he is at work.
Ever since Tom transferred , he pointed out hindrance from an outside source causing Teacup to become aggravated and to bark. With Teacup’s current status, frustration is not an option, Tom has spoken to his neighbors and no person or animal provokes Teacup from over her fence. Moreover, since the change of surroundings has changed the placement of things, Tom can be sure there is nothing that would cause Teacup to bark. And, Teacup’s food dish. Water bucket, and toys are all well within the dog’s reach.
Teacup was then brought by Tom to her vet, and fortunately any medical condition that may cause Teacup to bark was ruled out. Since Tom is always away from home every morning when he was still in his previous home, Teacup’s veterinarian suggest that Tom look at the idea of boredom barking. Since the odd seems to make sense, Tom starts looking into his idea of keeping Teacup entertained during the day.
At the beginning, Tom calls a local pet sitting business that specializes in taking care of dogs during the day while their owners are at work. The staffs in this institution were very professional, they promise to visit Teacup twice a day for one-half hour at a fixed schedule. During Teacup’s visitation, a person would walk the dog around the park and plays with her most of the time. Though this situation worked out well and Teacup did not bark as much before, she still barked.
Tom decided to enroll Teacup in the “doggy daycare” provided by a local kennel to stop the incessant barking dog. This class acted as a dog version of conventional daycare and let the dogs play together and with employees to prevent boredom. Tom drops Teacup off on the dog daycare center on his way to the office and picks her up on the way home. This setup makes the dog and the owner happy, it works perfectly well for both Teacup and Tom. Even though the fees for the “doggy daycare” are more than leaving Teacup at home during the day or even hiring a dog sitter, Tom feels the amount is well acceptable when he sees how happy Teacup is at the end of the day and the reality that his neighbor’s complaints have ceased. Moreover, since Teacup was otherwise an only dog, this “doggy daycare” lets her to mingle with other dogs, ensuring she is well developed socially and emotionally.
