Tips on Dealing With The Morning Rush

Mornings are a chaotic time in any household, and one family member that can get lost in the shuffle is Fido.  Your dog still needs attention, even though you are in a rush to get out of the house.  The American Kennel Club offers the following tips to help you prepare the night before to make sure your dog gets what he needs and you get to work on time.

  • Put your dog’s breakfast in his dish and cover it.  Don’t forget to put it on the counter out of his reach!  If his food is canned or perishable, make sure to refrigerate it.
  • Prepare for your morning walk in advance by leaving the leash and pickup bags by the door.  You can also leave extra bags by the door for your evening walk to save time when you get home.
  • Check the weather forecast each evening and get together any items you may need for the next day—umbrella, snow boots, etc.
  • If you have any toys that require you to fill them with a treat, such as the rubber toys you pack with peanut butter, stuff them and put them in the freezer.
