And, even if your dog isn't "destroyed" your wallet might be. We're liable for the torts of our animals.

Dogs are torts waiting to happen, especially large, scary looking ones.

Re: Dog in the house


Now that I think about it...

I had somebody driving by picking up scrap metal a few months ago, so I flagged them down as I had a few pieces they could have.
He was trying to convince me to let him also take an old A/C condenser that was piped into the garage - only the fan worked, but that was still useful, so I didn't want it taken.

Saw the guy's eyes get really big.
And then heard Chipper my pooch barking coming from the back side of house, and here he comes down the side of the house - and for a somewhat small pup, he's got a very deep/loud bark, and some big choppers. So he can look pretty scary coming towards you if he wants to.

Turned around - man that guy was gone quick as lightning. Guess he didn't want the A/C box quite that bad :-)

But then we go out to mom's, and her tiny little white fluffball Maltese just bosses him around all over the place. But it's her house, so he abides by her rules.

I can feel him cursing me right now for leaving him with her for a week :-)
But all is good, and everybody's safe, and the work is going well.

Re: Dog in the house


Maybe another way to deal with this is to frame the arguments like you might if an owner insists on letting little children play in or near the work area.

Most of the time, people either move the little ones away when the work starts, or do it immediately if you ask them to. Johnny or Janey can't read and become an MD, if he or she's flattened by a tree.

But some people, and I've seen it with my own eyes, just don't have a problem with little ones in the workspace while some guys and gals are cutting down big trees. Or breaking up concrete.

I've found that the safety angle eventually prevails if you push it enough. A shame you have to, but there's a lot that's not good out there.

Maybe for dogs, too.

Re: Dog in the house


Back in the 70s I was working for a drunk and we were repainting the interior of a house. The customer had a small dog. My drunk boss knocked over a can of paint onto the carpet, he quickly grabbed up the dog, slung him into the paint and started chasing the dog thru the house cussing as he went. She apologized for her dog knocking over the paint, I cleaned up the mess the best I could. I didn't say anything because I needed my paycheck. I didn't work for him long.

Re: Dog in the house


Yeah, if you're dog doesn't like other people in "his" house (lol, we have a dog and know how that goes!) then you've got issues. You're going to have to put him elsewhere! I run a cleaning service in St. George and occasionally need to have someone go into my house to grab something for a job I'm doing. My dog goes CRAZY! But that's only a drop off. I can't imagine how hard it would be if it was something where someone had to be in my house with my dog for hours!!!

Re: Dog in the house


All went well - with the pooch out to stay with mom for the week. They were here for 5 days and all doors open, side gate open, up and down in attic quite a bit, and they were here for a couple hours after I'd leave for the day each of the days. Would have been a major nightmare for me and them if having to deal with the pooch the whole time.

But we are both loving the new A/C, etc... now that the hot times are coming back to SoCal for the summer :-). Last summer was rough (no pun intended) for both of us.

Re: Dog in the house


I take my dog to my grandma. She lives not far from me and it is great.
