However, I have not been able to enjoy being in nature at all because we are surrounded by private houses who do not care about our mental and physical health.
Each of those houses have a private garden and a front yard that includes a parking space.
Now, getting back to the couple that is causing nuisance. Prior to the pandemic they had one dog. Although, I understand that buying puppies has been a trend with a 104% increase during the lockdown (Pets4Homes,n.d), other people should not have to suffer the consequences of a selfish purchase.
Before their purchase this couple already displayed some anti-social behaviour by letting the first dog pee and poo in the patch of grass that they do not own or financially contribute to clean. It was done late at night and in a quiet manner. However, with the arrival of the new puppy my anxiety has skyrocketed.
First, the puppy barks every time they step outside, unleashed.
Second, they are training it to pee and poop everyday, multiple times a day with a total disregard for others. I even know the dog’s name due to its owners screaming at it.
We should be able to enjoy a quiet sunny evening with our family in nature without being at risk.
