Back to School an Important Time for the Family Dog, Too
Aug 19, 2015 07:17PM ● Published by Steven Jack
It's that time of year when we find ourselves sending kids back to school all set to see what is ahead of them in the new year — such a great time of excitement for everyone.
However, what is the family dog doing now that everyone has gone back to school and life is returning to a somewhat normal pace? Now that the kids aren't all coming over to hang out, what is the dog doing?
Now that sports and after school activities take a front and center position of priority once again, what is your dog doing all day? Well likely the dog is sitting around wondering where all his/her fun playmates are. How sad for your dog.
The benefits to your dog are huge and you will enjoy them too. By giving your dog a safe place to go play during the day, you will be not only encouraging your dog to be a bit independent of you but you will be increasing his/her social skills in the process.
Dogs are better balanced and more well rounded members of our families when they have the opportunity to run and play in the fresh air.
