My neighbours have a beautiful dog, he is crying because they both work ft and at the weekends go out all day/or all night. They are 21-22yo. It is heartbreaking to listen to.

We have said to them "ooh he misses you when your out" and had the "he's crying all day" chat. They didn't know because he stops as soon as they get near the house in the car.

The crying did stop for a week, she came home at lunch and took him in the car for a walk (15 mins from getting home to getting back from the walk) and his DM came round to see him.

That's all stopped now. The dogs been crying all day. I don't think they realise their duty to the dog. He's only a year old. His crying sets the other dogs off barking.

Is there anything we can do? I think he'd be better off with a family who'd be there with him all day. Pets aren't toys you can just leave in the house all day. The left him alone all night on bonfire night, it was his first one and he sounded terrified all night.

How is your relationship with the neighbours generally? Are they otherwise reasonable people? Ideally I think the next step would be having an honest but tactful conversation with them saying what you've said here. Maybe highlight how much better it was when she came back at lunchtime and how the dog is so lovely and obviously very people oriented etc, and maybe suggest a dog walker? Persuasion would be my tactic, rather than barging in and demanding they re-home the dog.

Well I'm not the neighbourly type (bit shy) but Dh talks to people. I think a dog walker would help during the day.

What about night though?.

I'm worried about complaining in case they hurt my cat.

god i would have the dog for them..couldnt bear hearing that all day...not meaning you should at all tho

maybe suggest they set up a video thing so they can check how the dog is

you can download an app called 'presence' that uses an old smart phone or iPad to record

i used it to check my dog , who is fine during the day and sleeps ..but i have a dog walker who takes her out for long walk

I don't know. But he's all I've got and I worry about him.
