Keeping Your Dog Busy While You're Out
Most pet owners live a busy life and juggle between school, work, personal life, and their pets. Some of us are not lucky enough to work in a pet-friendly office or bring our pets to school. Our dogs typically end up spending a portion of the day alone. The truth is that without stimulation, dogs will find their own way to entertain themselves while you’re not home. We all know that a bored dog can be a destructive dog. Potentially finding a way to damage the whole house while you’re gone.
Sometimes our pets develop some skin conditions that we are not familiar with and we don’t know what to do until we book an appointment with the vet
