While most Australian’s spend over 40 hours in the office every week, their pets will spent just as much time lounging around the house; a routine that might seem appealing to the former but is actually tedious for the latter. Pets that stay home all day with no company are likely to get bored, so all pet owners should take note of the following boredom buster tricks and other tips.
Even though at times it may not seem like it, pets relish every single second they get to spend with their owners. By making an effort to spend quality time with your pet before and after work you will leave them feeling cherished, and give them something to look forward to during the day.
In an attempt to ward off boredom many pet owners leave their cats and dogs with hundreds of toys to play with during the day. While the idea of leaving them with comforts is novel, having hundreds of toys on-hand can actually accelerate feelings of boredom. Choose a couple of stimulating pet toys to leave with them during the day, or even opt for a few pet problem solving toys to stimulate them even more.
If you work late hours and will only be home well after dark it might be worthwhile to have a close friend or pet minder spend an hour or so with your furry friend. A brief stint of company can do wonders for a bored dog, and will keep them occupied until you get home.
