5 TIPS TO CURE
Being away from our beloved animals is hard, especially when we
know these social creatures need to be around people. Dogs,
especially, are privy to social stimulation. But now that fall has come,
and people are generally busier with activities, events, and the
holidays, how can we help distract our pets from being too lonely?
CURING SEPARATION ANXIETY IS A MAJOR PROBLEM
THAT MANY PET OWNERS WANT TO KNOW HOW TO
FIX AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO THEY KNOW THEIR
ANIMALS ARE HAPPY AND COMFORTABLE DURING
EXERCISE WITH YOUR DOG
It’s hectic getting back into a regular school or
work routine. Dogs experience similar
endorphin rushes when they exercise, so
consider taking advantage of a long jog or
taking advantage of playtime. It’s a great
addition to your regular exercise routine.
Exercising with each other can help lower
stress levels for both you and your pup. But it
can also improve your bond. In addition, your
pup will be tired afterwards and can take a
nice long nap after you bring them home.
REMOVE COMMON TRIGGERS
Dogs are intelligent creatures and they’re often hyper-aware
of patterns and routines. The sound of keys, the sound of the
hair dryer, or making coffee can alert a dog to your
impending departure. It might stress your dogs out, so make
sure you’re aware of which motions or sounds cause your
dog a heap of stress and try to limit the noise.
Perhaps, a family member can take the pup out for a jog
instead. Or you can eat together. Anything that distracts
your pup or calms them down will be the way to go.
Once your schedule starts to become busy, it’s easy to
be distracted all the time. But make sure you carve
out extra time to spend with your dog. It’s advised you
don’t teach your dog too many new tricks during this
time because it can only add to their stress levels.
Instead, try refreshing skill they’ve already learned. It
could help comfort your pup because they’re familiar
with them. It also gives you the opportunity to praise
and reward them with hugs or treats for their good
CHOOSE A DISTRACTING TOY
Your dog might have a favorite toy like a baseball or
a stuffed animal. But try soothing your dog’s
separation anxiety with another distracting toy
when you leave the house for the day. Avoid toys
that need interaction from a human. Instead, a toy
that dispenses treat or acts as a puzzle can help test
They will be able to entertain themselves for
hours. Plus, they won’t expect you to be there
when they see these toys. Not only will your pup
be entertained, but it can help lift their spirits
when you’re not around.
CREATING A RELAXING SPA
Humans often feel more relaxed after a spa day. Your
dog is no different. If your dog is expressing anxiety,
why not pamper them? Think about creating an
environment that is extra soothing for your pup.

dog relax and the Dog Appeasing Pheromone (DAP)

environment. The diffuser also helps calm the dog
down through thunderstorms, fireworkers, stranger
visits, and any other anxiety-inducing situation.
YOUR PUP WILL BE GRATEFUL THAT THEY
HAVE SUCH A THOUGHTFUL OWNER IN
THEIR LIVES. THESE TIPS WILL BE SURE TO
HELP CHEER UP YOUR PUP AND ALLOW
THEM TO ENJOY THEIR DAY, EVEN WHEN
THEY’RE AWAY FROM YOU!
