As much as we love spending time with our furry friends, sometimes work and other obligations get in the way. If you're a dog owner who works outside the home, you may worry about leaving your pup alone for long periods of time.
In this blog post, we'll share some tips for keeping your dog entertained while you're at work, so you can come home to a happy and relaxed pup.
1. Provide plenty of toys
Toys are a great way to keep your dog entertained while you're away. Consider puzzle toys, chew toys, and interactive toys that dispense treats. Rotate your dog's toys regularly to keep them interested.
2. Create a safe and comfortable space
Make sure your dog has a comfortable and secure space to hang out while you're away. This could be a crate or a designated area of your home. Provide your dog with a comfortable bed or blanket, and make sure they have access to water.
3. Hire a dog walker or pet sitter
If you work long hours, consider hiring a dog walker or pet sitter to come in and take your dog for a walk or play with them during the day. This will break up the monotony of the day and give your dog some much-needed exercise and socialization.
4. Leave the TV or radio on
Leaving the TV or radio on can help to soothe your dog and make them feel less alone. Choose a channel or station with calming music or sounds.
5. Consider doggy daycare
If your dog enjoys socializing with other dogs, consider enrolling them in doggy daycare a few days a week. This will give them a chance to play with other dogs and burn off some energy while you're at work.
Leaving your dog alone for long periods of time can be stressful, but there are ways to keep them entertained and happy while you're away. Provide plenty of toys, create a safe and comfortable space, hire a dog walker or pet sitter, leave the TV or radio on, and consider doggy daycare.
