Happy home alone

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

Dogs aren’t known as ‘man’s best friend’ for noth­ing – they are so­cial crea­tures and love be­ing around us, so it’s nor­mal for them to feel stressed or anx­ious when they’re left on their own. It’s im­por­tant to teach your dog to feel con­fi­dent and re­laxed about be­ing home alone from a young age and Lint­bells, man­u­fac­tur­ers of nat­u­ral pet sup­ple­ments, have some top tips for help­ing with this. En­cour­age your pooch to spend more time in their com­fort place, and in­tro­duce in­ter­ac­tive toys, chews or treats to this en­vi­ron­ment to dis­tract them.

Also, it’s al­ways a good idea to slowly in­crease the time you are away from your pet. Start with very short pe­ri­ods, such as spend­ing more time in your room and then grad­u­ally build up the length of time you are away, mak­ing sure they are re­laxed and happy through­out the process.
