Our Dogs Also Serve as Our Security System

Our dogs not only offer us love and companionship but they also serve as our protectors. If any prowlers or burglars want to gain access to our house, a dogs bark will usually steer them away. I once had a little Chihuahua and his bark was so loud that he sounded much larger than his was. I lived in a third floor walk up apartment. There were six apartments on each floor. Anytime anyone would get up to the third floor, my little Chihuahua would bark up a storm. Some neighbors would complain until one day. Burglars gained access to the apartment during the day when most people were at work. They broke into several apartments in the basement, 1st and 2nd floors but they didn’t go near any of the apartments on the third floor because the terrifying bark of my little Chihuahua scared them away! He was now the hero of the third floor and all of the neighbors suddenly didn’t mind his bark at all. In fact….they liked it!

Another tip. Whether or not you own a dog, if you go on vacation, keep a dog bowl full of water and keep it outside either in the front or back of the house in clear view. This way any would be home invaders will be deterred thinking that their is a dog in the home.

Remember, pets are family!
