- Going Back to The Office? How to Help Your Dog Adjust
We've got a stash of tips to make this transition smoother than a pup's belly.
1. Reintroduce Their Crate:
Got a crate-trained pup? Now's the perfect time to bring back the crate for short intervals. Shower them with praise and treats when they willingly dive in – crate time can be a cozy retreat!
Puppy-Proof Your Pad (Again):
Whether your furball is a pup or a senior, behaviors might regress. Close off trouble zones, stash away tempting shoes, and clear the stage of anything they might turn into a makeshift chew toy.
Early Morning Pup Time:
Rise and shine a bit earlier to squeeze in some quality time. Morning walks, fetch sessions, or a round of tug-of-war can help burn off that excess energy, leaving less room for mischief during your absence.
Create a Zen Atmosphere:
Let's set the mood for serenity! Soothing music, a pheromone collar, or an electric diffuser can work wonders. Leave the TV on – it's like a friendly whisper saying, "Hey, your humans will be back soon!"
Cozy Up with a Bolster Bed:
Ever heard of a bolster bed? Picture a donut-shaped haven that mimics your dog's natural nesting instincts. Like a cozy swaddle for a baby, it helps them feel safe and relaxed.
Surround Them with Comfort:
Equip your pup with all their favorite chew toys. Leaving a worn T-shirt in their crate or scattered around the house adds a personal touch, making them feel snug as a bug.
Tech Time with Furbo:
Embrace the wonders of technology! Check in on your fur baby with cameras that let you speak to them – we're big fans of the Furbo dog camera, which even lets you toss treats to your dog through an app. Talk about next-level interaction!
Enter the Kong Bone, a timeless favorite stuffed with dried liver treats. The classic Kong toy filled with frozen peanut butter is a hit too. Keep things interesting by rotating different food-dispensing toys.
Puzzle Toys for Mental Gymnastics:
Treat your pup to some mental gymnastics with engaging puzzle toys. Save these for their "alone time," turning solitude into a tasty challenge.
