We have had our youngest dog for over a year now. Hes been great but just recently hes become really territorial. He barks and growls at our neighbours when they go in their backyard and has recently started pulling pailings off the fence to get into their yard. My husband and I are running out of ideas on what to do to help fix this. Our neighbors are the most lovely people and have not done anything to him to provoke him or encourage this behaviour.
