When Dogs are Home Alone

Have you ever wondered what your dog is doing when you are out of the
house? Fido can't surf the internet or pick up the phone and invite a
few friends over for brunch and bridge.

A nice long nap is often the answer for many. Ours "watch" classic
Western movies , and while the plot may not fascinate them, they do
seem content in front of the big screen with some Gene Autry music and
lil' doggies of the big screen to watch.

Some dogs will, I admit, get into a bit of trouble, barking, whining and
chewing up the leg on a chair or a shoe or two:) They may pee in unwanted
places, throw up, over eat or refuse to eat. Almost any behavior out
of the ordinary may be a tell tale sign At times this may be the
product of separation anxiety, but in many cases B-O-R-E-D-O-M

There are ways to combat the boredom and unhappiness causing unwanted
behaviors. The key is to keep Fido busy when you are not at home.

By so doing,his days will filled with fun and you are less likely to
be met by a house in disarray or an unhappy Fido when you get home.

Here are a few ideas:

1.Make sure Fido has an array of safe and fun toys to play with when
you are out.

2. Ask a friend or family member to stop by and visit Fido for a short
time. Even 15 minutes, a quick game of fetch in the yard, or a quick
walk will be a welcome interlude in the day.

If this is not possible, check with your local dog rescues or your vet
to recommend a local dog walker. It's typically low cost and would
be fun for Fido !

3.Doggy camp or day care is another option. Some will even pick Fido
up for the day and bring him home when you are back.

He'll have play time with other dogs, some camps have swimming pools,
a massage therapist and spa services as well. Just make sure you inspect
the facility first and get reviews on them before entrusting Fido to
them for the day.

4.Take Fido for a LONG walk before you leave or engage in some high
activity level play. If he is tired he will typically be happy and enjoy
his nap waiting for you to get home.

Follow these tips for your peace of mind and Fido's happiness amd well being...you'll be glad you did
