Keep dogs safe outside

OK, we all agree that excessive dog barking is annoying, but sometimes they just have to let it out or they are communicating with other dogs in the neighborhood.

Why yell and get upset when you can simply bring them inside?

But make sure their barking isn’t to alert you that something’s wrong. Take a look around the yard to ensure it is safe before tying them to a runner. Remember: If another dog is loose in your neighborhood, it could reach your dog, who is tied up with no safe place to run away.
