We all know that dogs, like people can get bored—some more easily than others. And when they get bored things happen —things that will help you be able to post on the Dog Shaming website—like destroying blinds, eating shoes, socks, furniture etc. Dogs can get bored and they want to amuse themselves—play if you will. So they’ll look around for things to do while you’re gone. If you have plenty of dog toys available and maybe a doggie door for them to escape outside for awhile that can help a lot.
How can you know if they’re bored? Well there are many signs like excessive barking, mischief, destructive chewing, escaping and even hyper greeting when you return. Modern Dog Magazine has a blog about how to tell when your dog is bored and what to do about it—read about it here.
