Tips on Keeping Your Pet Happy While You’re Out

  1. Exercise your pet every night- Keep your pet physically active by taking your pet out for walks or by playing with your pet each evening. If you can, exercise your pet each morning as well. This will help your pet stay active and healthy even when the house is empty.

  1. Enroll your pet in daycare- Pet daycare enables pets to socialize and spend time with others. Enrolling your pet in daycare even for just one day will help keep your pet mentally, physically and emotionally engaged throughout the day.

  1. Get your pet a dog walker or a sitter- If you can't afford a pet daycare; consider getting a dog walker or a sitter who will come visit your pet once during the day.

  1. Give your pet fun, interactive toys- Your pet will need something that will keep him or her busy while you and the kids are gone. Give your pet a fun, interactive toy to play with while you're gone.

  1. Take your pet to the vet- If your pet is listless, unhappy and lacks energy, back to school time might not be the problem. Your pet could be ill or experiencing a medical problem. Take your pet to Mokena Animal Clinic Ltd to ensure that your pet is healthy.
