National Walking The Dog Day
In a recent survey by DogBuddy, almost half of dog owners leave their dog home alone during the day. Your dog is your best friend and confidant, so it’s no surprise that almost three quarters of dog owners feel guilty about leaving their pup home alone.
Many dog owners put home destruction down to dog boredom and general naughtiness, little do they know that this isn’t the case. Nearly half of dogs show signs of separation anxiety when left alone – excessive barking or damaging the home are both symptoms.
What can we do on #walkingthedogday?
We caught up with TV celeb and PupAid Founder Marc Abraham (Marc the Vet) and Tamsin from rehoming charity Blue Cross about today’s National Walking The Dog Day. Marc tackles the subject of dog loneliness and airs his thoughts on the importance of exercising your dog for both mental and physical stimulation.
