    "My thanks to Chris and Damon for their nice work on my house. They worked hard, got things done in the time they had predicted, and were polite and professional. Their work was very good- the living room ceiling looks fabulous, as there was quite a bit of water damage before. I am very pleased with the results, exactly what I wanted. Thanks so much."

    Approach your neighbor one more time. Try to be as sensitive as possible, as the neighbor likely cares about the dogs deeply. “If you say, ‘I think he’s stressed,’ you’ve already said, ‘You’re not a good pet parent,’ ” said Andrea Arden, a dog trainer.
