The Ultimate Dog Care Guide for Working Pet Owners

working pet ownersYour dog knows the routine; in fact, he has come to expect it. He watches as you perform your daily rituals of showering, dressing, making coffee, and getting your supplies together. His tail wags hopefully as you tell him to “Be a good boy! See you tonight!” Although you can’t see him, he’s surely listening as your car drives away and he settles in to await your return in the evening.

Thanks to our society’s prevailing view of pets as family members, working pet owners often worry about their pets’ emotions as well as their own. According to a study by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) in 2000, 75 percent of working pet owners feel guilty about leaving their pets home alone while they are at work.
