With the recent events surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak, a lot of people across the country have found themselves working at home with pets for the first time.
While our pets are certainly happy with this new arrangement, they don’t quite understand that we still have quite a lot of work to get done each day!
After all, when a dog or cat wants attention, they will usually do whatever they can to get it; serving as a massive distraction!
In this article, we’re going to take a look at a few tips on keeping your pets busy, so that you can focus on getting your work done.
Puzzle toys can be a lifesaver! A toy that is filled with treats usually serves as a perfect distraction; allowing you to get on with that important work.
There are many options out there, but they generally work all the same. They are a toy that requires problem-solving skills for the dog or cat to get the reward; which is usually a tasty treat.
All this mental stimulation will keep your food-driven pets busy and can even tire them out afterward, leaving you with plenty of time to be productive.
Designate Time for Play
This seems counterproductive, but hear us out!
By setting a designated time, you can give your pet the attention they so sorely want. The goal, however, is to try and tire them out as best as you can.
This way, when it becomes time to get back to work, your pet will likely have a bit of a snooze and not bother you further.
Of course, your mileage may vary depending on how energetic your breed may be. For the most hyper breeds, you may need to dedicate more time each day if possible.
