Daizy914:  Hey! I’m a long time apartment dweller. I think the couch thing will eventually be resolved, although it’s obnoxious that it’s taking so long (can they not lift it?). 

So, the open door issue with the dog. I’d just tell them that your dog is kind of aggressive and has been known to bite other dogs and that you’d hate for anything to happen just because they leave the door open. Hah, it’s dishonest, but reasonable people know to keep their doors closed. So I think this is the only thing that will work.

Your other option is telling the landlord, but it sounds like you’re the only two tennants so they will know. How close of a friend is this person? Are you ok with stirring the pot? If so I’m SURE the landlord is not ok with a dog having free reign over the place. 

The dog barking issue is tough. Again I think you’ll have to say something to the landlord. Basically your move is: 

1. Move out. 

2. Get ok with everything that is happening. 

3. Tell the landlord everything and risk the relationship.

Daizy914:  Bleh, it’s definitely a sucky situation. I hope you get it resolved soon, I know you mentioned having a child soon. How long is your lease for? Maybe if you know, “I only have to deal with this for X months” it will be easier? Seems like moving might be the best option.
