Fall Into an Autumn Routine With Your Dog

For many families, back-to-school means back to routine. It’s a time when we say goodbye to the chaos of summer and hello to cooler, shorter days ahead. Whether you embrace getting back into a routine, or wish you were still in vacation mode, your dog may be a little confused as to what’s happening.

Your pup went from a home filled with people to a (possibly) empty house. As I write this my own three-year-old golden lab is on the floor beside me catching up on sleep, the sleep that was impossible to get when friends and family were coming and going and she didn’t want to miss out on a single moment.

Now is the perfect time to get your dog back into a routine and prepare for a safe and happy fall.

Make Your Goodbyes Quick
This one is hard, I know. But your dog may pick up on you feeling sad or guilty for leaving her home all day, which can make her anxious in return, so try to make the goodbyes quick and matter-of-fact.

Plan on Longer Walks in the Morning and Night
During the summer was there always someone around to walk your dog whenever he needed? Now that the kids are back in school plan out longer walks first thing in the a.m. and in the evening so he’s getting the exercise and interaction he needs and craves.

Reflective Gear
With the days getting shorter, stay safe by investing in reflective gear for both yourself and your dog to keep you visible when the evenings become dark.

Watch Out For Piles Leaves
Who can resist jumping into a pile of leaves? While it’s tempting for your pooch, try to keep a close eye on him because the leaves could be hiding rocks, burs, or hidden hazards you don’t want her getting into.

Get Grooming
‘Tis the season! Depending on the type of dog you have, you’ll want to stay on top of brushing and grooming as she loses her summer coat to make room for heavy protective winter fur.

Watch Out For those School Projects
Glue, markers, tape, scissors… when your kids work on school projects at home, it all comes out and is sometimes forgotten to be put away. Create a safe area (a drawer or closed lid box) where you can keep all the supplies so your pup doesn’t get into it.

Last but not least, take lots of pictures and show them to us on our Facebook page! Nothing makes us happier than seeing your pets.

Wishing you a safe and happy autumn!
