Be Dog Smart!
Staying Safe during lockdown
For those of you with dogs, you might find that they are delighted to have you around the house all the time, but we have to remember that some dogs might be slightly put off by this change in routine. This is a peculiar time for all of us, but we must remember that it is also strange for our pets.
At least we have the benefit of knowing why our regular routines have been upended. Our dogs don’t have a clue what is happening, and while many of them will be delighted to have their humans with them 24/7, some of them may find the shift in habits unsettling. The most important thing is to make sure your dogs remain happy, and comfortable in your home. If they are happy they will feel safe, and if your dog feels safe, then any children in the family should stay safe too.
With all these restrictions in place, dog walks are likely reduced and with everyone at home, their sleep pattern may be off kilter. While these changes may not seem like a huge deal to us, this could lead to frustration with our dogs so if at all possible, try to keep to your dog’s normal routine.
