A sudden change in schedule in terms of when or how long a dog is left alone can trigger the development of separation anxiety. For example, if a dog spends all summer with their family and suddenly in September when everyone goes back to school they are left for long hours, the dog might develop separation anxiety because of that change.
Now we are at the end of September the days are getting shorter and the temperature is getting colder, keeping your dog warm, dry and safe is very important at this time of year as we approach Autumn. There are a few things you should do to prepare your dog for the upcoming season change. Your dog will no longer be able to enjoy the evening sun and enjoy long evening walks with the family.
Summer is drawing to a close which means back-to-school time is upon us.
While your kids know the routine, it can be difficult for your pets to make the transition.
If you have a cat, dog, horse or you keep exotic animals that have access to the outdoors, your pet could be at risk from tick bites. When you go outside to enjoy the last of the summer with your pets, you need to remember to always check for ticks.
