If you have a loyal pooch at home never forget to let them know how much you love them. It's sad to think that all day while we are at work they are all alone. I can't help but wonder what they think about or do all day without us.
Do they sit by the door just waiting for the knob to turn? Or do they keep themselves occupied by playing with their toys? I've actually considered getting one of those cameras so you can watch your dog, give them treats, and talk to them. Maybe that would make them feel a little extra happy.
But no matter what your dog does during the day, they definitely can't wait for their humans to come home and give them lots of cuddles and kisses. So after a long day don't go home and neglect your dog because all you wanna do it eat dinner and go to bed. Sit down for an hour or so and just pet them, maybe practice some new tricks. Reward your dog so that they know how much of a good pup they are.
If you know you are going to have a long day at work and won't be able to give your puppy the attention they deserve, then maybe consider something like doggy daycare, play dates, or a dog walker. This way they still get that socialization that they need and they get to run off all their energy.
And a little tip to those busy people out there that think they need dogs. If you don't have time to give a dog attention and love, then do not get a dog!! It is essential to their health that's they get love and exercise!
Sincerely, a very passionate dog mom
