Survival Guide for Dog Parents Working From Home

Survival Guide for Dog Parents Working From Home

The Coronavirus pandemic has given your dog a great gift. Their favourite person in the entire world is at home 24/7. Although this may be the most exciting time ever for your dog, it can be stressful for dog owners who are working remotely for the first time. Working from home comes with a bunch of obstacles, and your dog can sometimes be one of them.

Is being a pet parent getting in the way of your working from home? Check out these tips to help keep your sanity in check and your furry friend happy.

1. Exercise and feed your pet before you start working for the day.

It’s a good idea in these times to rise early and take your dog for a run around the block then come home and feed him and begin your work day. Your dog will be tired from the exercise and will most likely doze off for a morning siesta leaving you to get on with your work for a couple of hours without interruption.

2. Make food and water readily available.

Some people prefer to feed their dog at set times throughout the day, while others like to have food out so they can snack whenever they want to. In these times it’s a good idea to leave out a small bowl of healthy food, and water that you refill as needed throughout the day so that you won’t have to stop working if your pooch gets hungry.

3. Create a separate, pup-free work space

The best way to ensure your dog won’t put a kink in the flow of your work day is to keep them in a separate area. Of course it’s nice to be able to pet your pup whilst listening in on a work phone meeting, however doing this will lead your dog to think he can get your attention whenever he wants. If you have a safe, fenced in backyard, leaving the door open so they can come and go as they please is a great way to give them more space and keep them occupied.

4. Take regular breaks
