Here is Breakthrough veterinary advisor, Vicky Payne BVetMed, DipCABT (RQF level6), GradDip VWHM, MRCVS, discussing the impact the festive season may have on dogs and how to support clients in practice.
If you are looking to home a pet over the Christmas break, it is important to socialise them properly and prepare them for when the festivities are over and the family returns to their normal daily routine. The following blogs are good resources to help you care for a new pet over Christmas responsibly:
- Training a Dog to Be Left Alone
- Separation Anxiety In Dogs After Lockdown (see the section on ‘How can you reduce separation anxiety?’)
- Having a Puppy During Lockdown
- Puppy Power: Training and Socialisation
