With that in mind, creating a comfortable space for your dog to relax and roam while you’re not there is really important. It can give you some peace of mind that there is a ‘safe’ zone for them to be in, as well as provide comfort to them.
Whether it is an entire room for them, or just the corner of one, here are some top tips to help you to create a comfortable and safe space for them to be when you’re out of the house.
Set Up Their Room
Baby gates, locked doors, or crates can all help this. Then you don’t have to worry about them causing damage, or them getting hurt in any way.
Keep Your Dog’s Safety As Priority
Do a mini-risk-assessment of the area so you can secure cables if they are on display, as well as picking up small things of the floor, and making sure that the room is the right temperature.
Create a Cozy Bedding Area
They can sit and rest, as well as snuggle down and sleep, and they’ll be able to do so in comfort. Think a dog bed, large pillows, throws and blankets. Even something like a personalized Print Your Pet blanket could be a fun touch for the bedding. No need to go overboard, but make sure that it is comfortable and safe for them too.
Add Fun Toys & Games
A chew toy, a rattle toy, or a puzzle-style toy can all be good ideas. Click for some of our favorite puzzles! Just make sure they have no small parts that can hurt your pet. Some people leave the radio on for their dog or their TV with something like Animal Planet on, so the room isn’t in complete silence for them.
