Happy home alone
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.
