March Newsletter: Tips for Pet Parents During Covid-19
Tips for working from home with your pet
Establish a Routine Your pets may spend a large portion of the day sleeping while you’re at work. Avoid disturbing them when possible while they’re sleeping. Aim to wake up around the same time every day, and keep a consistent schedule. Feed them their meals at around the same time each day, and for dogs, try to walk them around a similar time.
Make sure your home is set up to keep your pets happy and comfortable. Create a hiding space for cats, and have your dog’s kennel or bed set up in a designated area. This gives them a space where they can relax, and if they have a space to go to, they may be less likely to bother you during conference calls!
Teach your pet a fun trick! Training can be mentally stimulating for both you and your pet. (For cats, training success often involves varying the reward – try foods like cat-safe baby food or canned tuna, and petting or verbal praise, until you find something your cat responds well to.)
