My SO and I moved into a duplex house a few weeks ago. This past weekend we got a new pet, Finley.
When Finley doesn't like something we're doing, he'll scream. Loud. It's actually rather ear-piercing. But as part of his training we need to let him scream and ignore it, to show him that it won't faze us. Essentially we're getting all the screams out now (while he's young) so we won't need to deal with them later. The worst of it will be in these next two weeks, but it may still happen every once in awhile for the foreseeable future.
However, since we share a wall running the length of the house with our neighbors, I'm worried that they'll hear these screams and either be annoyed, think we're torturing animals or humans, or worse, call the landlord or some other authority.
As such, I'd like to warn them that there will be loud screams, as this is inevitable with our pet while he's young. That being said, both my SO and I will be at home at all times with him for these next two weeks. So we can move the training times to literally any time that's good for our neighbors. I'd also be more than happy to buy them a pack of beers/a basket of treats/etc. for the trouble if it will help placate them.
We have yet to talk to or even see our neighbors, so we have no repertoire established and no relationship with them as of yet.
How can I let my neighbors know that our new pet likes to scream while he's being trained and decide on a good time for them while making the process as painless as possible?
