Back-to-school is around the corner. Backpacks, pencils, notebooks - check. Bus schedule - check. Dog training in place - what??
Summer is winding down and routines are going to change for many of us. Start now to give your pets a smooth transition - and hopefully avoid unpleasant chewed-up surprises and trips to the emergency vet.
Here's your back-to-school list for your dog:
Start the routine early - with shorter away times
Exercise solves so many problems
Keep transitions short and smooth
Distraction is your friend
Keep it positive
