Adjusting Your Dog to Apartment Living!
Moving can not only be stressful for you, but can also cause a lot of stress for your four legged friend! Apartment living is an adjustment but can be a very rewarding! It just takes a little encouragement, patience and consistency!
The first step to a healthy living situation for your dog is lots of exercise! Taking them on walks around the property and to our on site Dog Park is a great way to do this! Be sure you are always in control of your pet by having them on a leash! It is for not only the safety of others but for the safety of your pet. Also be sure to pick up after your pet! Not only is it rude to leave pet waste, it is also harmful to other pets and spreads disease.
To help your pet from barking when you’re not home is no easy task, but can be done! Create a safe environment for your dog, When you’re getting ready to leave for work, consider closing your curtains and turning on your television, radio or a white-noise machine. The combination of constant white noise and inability to see outside usually helps matters considerably. Another way to address doggie boredom is to provide Fido with some sort of entertainment to keep him occupied while you’re gone for the day.
Having a well trained pet will always help with apartment living! Just takes lots of love, patience, time & TREATS!
