HEADING BACK TO THE OFFICE? DON’T FORGET TO MAKE A PLAN FOR YOUR DOGS & CATS!

PETA offers tips to help them cope with loneliness and boredom

DIANA MENDOZA, companion animal program manager, PETA Los Angeles

BACKGROUND:

As more people get the COVID-19 vaccine and states re-open, many Americans will be heading back to work outside the home. That may be good news for humans eager to get back to their old routine, but it will be a painful adjustment for the dogs and cats who’ve grown used to having someone to keep them company at home.  The transition can be traumatic for them.

PETA, the largest animal rights organization in the world, has tips to help guardians ensure that life after lockdown isn’t a huge let down for dogs and cats who are, after all, members of our family. Some advice includes:

  • Take your dog for an extra-long walk before work. Don’t hurry him along, get him tired so he’ll nap better.
  • Never lock him in a crate, which adds to stress. Dogs aren’t things to be stored, and if there’s a fire or break in, they cannot escape.
  • Make sure your cat has a view, even if that means pulling a piece of furniture to the window.
  • Gradually increase the amount of time you spend away from the house, and don’t become a blur, arriving back, hurriedly walking him, and then disappearing again.
  • Slow down. Spend attentive, quality time with him before you leave and when you get home.
  • Provide interactive toys for while you’re away, such as a puzzle treat dispenser for dogs and catnip-filled items for cats.
  • Always give a kind word, make a fuss, and offer a treat before you walk out the door.
  • If you do not use doggie day care, always arrange for a trusted friend, relative, or recommended dog walker to let your dog out during the day; because dogs aren’t machines, they, like you, have to “go.”
  • Talk to your workplace about allowing dogs at work, or at least having a “Bring Your Dog to Work Day” once a week or month.

On May 26, Diana Mendoza will be available for interviews. She will tell your listeners the best way to help animals adapt to our absence, and offer helpful tips to ease the transition.
