Everybody knows that window films can be applied to doors and windows in the interest of privacy. It’s certainly a popular product for peoples’ showers and bathroom windows. But there is another resident in 47% of American homes who can also benefit from the use of privacy window filming: man’s best friend.
That’s right! You may not realize this, but if you have a dog that barks excessively, especially when you’re not home to monitor behavior, you’re stressing your furry friend out!
Excessive barking’s not just annoying to neighbors and-as the old joke goes- the mail man; it’s actually really stressful for your dog, too! When dogs bark at passers by, they’re either doing it because-
A) They’re protecting the house from a perceived threat, or…
B) They see someone they’d like to play with.
Either way, dogs get very over-stimulated, and, according to pet behavioral experts, are more prone to some destructive behavior during these fits.
So for many pet owners, the old rule of Ockham’s Razor, which states that the simplest solution is the best, applies here. When outside forces become visible, the dog freaks out. Therefore, block whatever’s driving him nuts, and you’ve taken care of the problem!
Privacy Window films, especially ones meant to look like acid etched or sand blasted glass, are a super effective solution to this issue. They block out those offending stimulants that are driving your dog crazy, making window film a fast and reasonably priced installation to make, since you don’t have to actually replace the window.
Plus, the high quality privacy window films that are now available are also really attractive additions to the room, and some are even available with décor friendly patterns. They serve to block out visuals, but still let in light so your room looks bright and cheery, so that everyone living in your home, from your furry friend, to you, is calm and happy.
