Back to school: part two

Back to school: part two

So what can you do to transition your pet back to a more normal routine where they are not getting the constant attention:

  • Leave the TV on so when you are gone, they don’t feel they are so alone.
  • Try interactive toys when you are gone.  There are puzzle treat boxes that pets have to figure out a pattern to get a treat.  There are also the kong toys that provide different avenues for retrieving treats.
  • Hire a pet sitter to stop by mid day for a walk or 30 minute play session.  More children are home schooled these days and may be looking for a part time job that would accommodate both your needs.
  • Hide treats around the home for your pet to find.
  • Make sure you have 1 hour of time just for your pet each evening at least for the first few weeks.
  • Radio can be a good alternative to TV for your pet.
