support networks for people who do need to leave their pets home alone
Remember you aren’t alone. Around 92% of pet owners leave their animals alone at least some of the time.
• Ask friends or neighbours to visit and spend time with your pet – even better, if they have a pet of their own, you can offer to return the favour.
• Dog specific on-line networks are a great way to find other dog owners in your local area to potentially swap puppy play dates with.
• Also remember there are now doggy day care and dog walking services available in many areas.
