Earlier this year a neighbour got a pair of puppies, thankfully Bungo and the puppies get on, however, recently the puppies have been getting braver and they've started running round to my door, sometimes I've come outside and they run round and they won't leave me alone, other times they just run round to my door and Bungo is doing his 'there's someone out there' thing, I open the door to find the puppies literally just the other side, thankfully I have a gate across my door because without it I think the puppies would run inside! My problem is that Bungos behaviour has changed and he hears the puppies and he barks and lately has started jumping at the door and being a right PITA. Thankfully it's not too bad at present being winter, but I want to get this sorted before the weather warms up and the puppies are outside more and potentially become a bigger problem. I can't talk to the neighbours, but was wondering if there was anything else I can do? So far, if I know the puppies have run round I just ignore Bungo as I don't want the puppies being rewarded for coming round every time and I don't want Bungo thinking his behaviour gets me to open the door, however if I don't know its the puppies I have to open the door incase there is someone out there and I didn't hear them knock or something. Is ignoring him the right way to do this? Or should I just let them say hello?
