Cesar’s top tips:
>> START SLOWLY!
Going from being around all the time to away during the day is a big change for pets. Dogs thrive on consistency so if your dog isn’t used to being alone, ease them into it with short trips away. You can gradually add more time to your time away from home. The good news is that like humans, dogs are able to adapt!
>> PREPARE BEFORE YOU LEAVE!
Dogs, like humans, are diurnal, so taking walks in the morning is ideal. I recommend setting aside thirty minutes to a full hour. Once your walk is complete, reward your dog by feeding them when you return home. By providing a meal after the walk, you have allowed your dog to “work” for food and water.
>> PLAN FREQUENT WALKS!
If you are going to be away from home for extended periods of time, it is important to plan enough exercise for your dog. Dog walkers or a dog day care will provide exercise and stimulation your dogs need. Nervous about leaving your dog in someone else’s care? The Halo Collar allows you to track your dog’s activity and whereabouts, providing peace of mind for pack leaders everywhere.
>> HAVE THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT!
Focus on practical equipment that will help you and your dog, and invest in smart dog training!
