A break from the daily work routine may sound heavenly to many people, but the opposite could be true for our pets.
As our friends at the ASPCA® explain, “Dogs and cats need to stay busy and engaged, but unfortunately most pets are unemployed—daily they sit at home, chronically bored and waiting for their humans to return from work.”
Regular exercise can be a great way to keep your furry friends ‘employed,’ and the animal trainers at the ASPCA has some great tips on “How to Keep Your Pet Happy and Active.”
They also have some great ideas for fun and games with your cat or dog!

Crate training dogs can be a very useful tool for managing your furry friend’s behavior. For instance, many people use crate training to house train, prevent destructive behavior or help pets travel more safely.
Our friends at the ASPCA® have some great tips about how to effectively crate train, how long your pup should stay in the crate, how to troubleshoot crate training problems and when not to use a crate.
