Dr Louisa Graham’s Top Tips for Easing Back to Work…

It’s important you don’t change your pet’s routine too much and make sure you try and keep their routine consistent.

If they’re used to spending a lot of time with you, then try and give them some alone time. Dogs need to feel comfortable being alone in order to prevent behavioural issues such as separation anxiety when our daily routines change again by returning to work. Before you become busier post-lockdown, then continue to give them that space so they’re used to it when it’s time for you to go. Try and leave them alone in the house for short periods and build it up over time – a great tip is to associate this down time with something positive like a treat.
