Are you still working from home and struggling with the isolation? If so, top Sydney Pet Sitter Odette McCarthy has some tips for how life in lockdown can benefit your dog!
Does Covid continue to have you feeling cooped up, cabin-fever style? While restrictions are easing, most of us are still confined with our canine. Of course, your pooch would kill for these circumstances to carry on. After reading these pup-tential points, perhaps you will want the world to remain this way as well! Make the most of life in lockdown and see how a pooch can make these remote moments paw-some.
Life in lockdown is a great reason to spend quality time with your furry friend
Life in lockdown is an exceptional excuse to hang with your bewhiskered bestie. A Cavoodle companion can enjoy their favourite dog food beside you while you wolf down your Weet-Bix. A Pomeranian provides a pal as you print out reports. Fido is a ready friend for a night of Netflix and Snuggle-with-the-Puggle. What bigger or more brilliant an excuse will you ever again have to spending time with your furry BFF? Being a socially lone wolf myself, I can state in certainty that minding a Mini Schnauzer, a Maltese Terrier, or any mix can make a difference to your mental merriment.
It’s a chance to give your pup the attention they need
Don’t be lazy and lie in bed – get the pup up! During these dreary days, a doggo can be your daily drive. You’ll be hounded to get up for a morning wee, or to prepare their breakfast. What other being would give paw-some reminders to get up, get dressed, and make a meal?! Listen to doggo and go for that joggo! You will both benefit from abandoning the house for a bit; in fact, you could use this time as a chance to work on their Dog Training. If there are any tricks or behaviours you’ve wanted to teach your furbaby, there’s never been a better time!
During life in lockdown, have some candid conversations about canines
During the WFH era, you can enrich social encounters in isolation and grease your cyber-gab with discussions about dogs. This is especially true of video meetings; whenever a conversation veers into awkward terrain, simply summon your furry friend to the camera. I promise you this: the moment your colleague(s) see your dog, your pow-wow will pivot onto the topic of pooches.
Indulge in dog-centric social media
One of the biggest perks of being a Mad Paws Pet Sitter is the chance to post furry content on social media. While living life in lockdown with your furbaby, you can double your dog-centric output!! See the likes and comments come pouring in when you post yourself with a teeny Terrier in a pink fluffy jacket, or a massive Mastiff posing together as though the two of you are about to drop the next chart-topping rap hit.
No matter how good you see yourself in a shot, a foxy fuzzball will always make you look more magnificent. And why not try your paw at creating a doggone account? On Instagram, Jiffpom the Pomeranian boasts over 10 million followers. Not too bad considering Jiffpom starred in a Katy Perry music video, is about one 1 twentieth of her size, yet holds over a tenth of her number of followers. Dig out the dirt on how distinguished your doggo can become and display them across the digital realm. In short, focus your isolated efforts on a paw-sitive pet project online.
One takeaway from this: If you have canines on the cranium, you won’t feel alone!
