Signs of Boredom:

Dogs that bark continuously, get into the trash, chew on furniture/shoes etc. These are signs of bad behavior stem from boredom. The is especially notable in high energy breeds. Luckily there is a simple mixture to reduce boredom. Release energy and establish a routine. If a pet is crated, or home alone for hours at a time an owner’s life will be more and more difficult. An owner will have a hard time training, an owner will incur higher vet costs and peers will hate to see that badly behaved dog heading their way. Boredom in pets can lead to destruction of personal items, high vet bills and even death because a pet has eaten something harmful while an owner was away.

Boredom will become an issue at some point, just as a toddler might do. He or she is going to find a way to get in trouble. However, the trick is to minimize these issues is to keep pets on a schedule. Just like toddlers, dogs do not like surprises and love routine. Whether a two legged or four legged parent you have probably noticed this but might not fully understand the importance of routine.

Good Practices:

Chances are you have already established some kind of routine with your pet. It probably goes something like this, wake up and let Fido out to use the restroom and then come back in and feed. Then get ready for the day, let Fido out one last time before leaving for work. Possibly leave a Kong with peanut butter if in the pet’s crate. This helps but lets take it a step further. Keeping a pet in a crate for more than five hours is not appropriate for any dog. Even five hours is considered by some experts as to long but for the sake of beginning lets say five hours is okay if the appropriate measures are taken.

Exercise, this is the best reward for a dog. Yes even better than a bone, a pet might disagree but this is true. Exercise alone will improve your pets behavior, deposition and make training much easier. Pets thrives on attention, exercise and positive reinforcement. Leaving your pet in a crate for extended periods of time only bottles up energy making your job twice as hard once you get home when all someone wants to do is sit down and relax after a long day.

Recommended Routine:

First, one should take a look at their schedule and if it is a busy one the idea of a pet sitter and dog walker can dramatically improve behavior and make your life much more easy. This increase in cost might actually reduce future vet costs and they save pet owners a lot of trouble. A good pet sitter can not only help out to get your pet on a routine, but also if something comes up last minute at the office established companies can feel emergency requests. Traveling is also a great time for a pet sitter and dog walker. Traveling is difficult on your pet because it is hard for them to maintain their routine if they are staying at a kennel or boarding house. There are some companies such as Blue Chip Pet Care, who will tailor services to keep pets on their normal routine. Pet feel safe and comfortable in their routine and at home. This not only reduces stress on owners and pets but when owners return there is no ground lost.

Secondly, owners can also start out with a good walk in the AM, then off to work. Possibly have a good bone for the pet while you are away. Elk bones are the best because they splinter the least. Pig Ears, Raw Hides and lactic can be dangerous if the pet is home alone as they can become choking hazards. If an owner lives near a railroad crossing or in the city a noise maker is a good investment or play classical music on low column to create a more relaxed in environment. Once back home, try another dog walk before dinner or a quick let out then longer walk in the evening. This will re-charge the owner and also get some of that energy out of the pet. Hold off on treats while you are away because depending on the ingredients they can provoke the problem. Have a safe and happy holiday!

Family Dog – Longplay

A longplay requested by UltimateRugratsFan. Nope, nothing is missing and this feels more like a shortplay. This video is the game. I could go on and do my usual long rant/review of the game, but who cares? It’s a 10 minutes game. Just watch. Don’t forget, if you have requests like for another video game I should consider for a similar treatment as this one, just ask here or on my channel or even by sending me a personal message and if I can make it, there are good chances that I will… eventually! You can always see the current list of games already requested so as to avoid doing the same request twice (don’t worry if you do) or to see why it might take some time for me to complete your request: Note that the list is in no strict order, especially since most of these were simple suggestions made with no sense of urgency. So don’t be intimidated by the list, don’t be shy to ask me to do a game like this, even though you might see a lot of games already on the list.
