Leaving Your Dog Alone All Day: 5 Tips  

Place it safely A safe location will reassure your pet while you're away. It could be a room or dog's crate. Due to confinement, separation-anxious dogs do best in kennels.

Leave durable toys for your dog to play with and gnaw on while you're away. Chewing is a wonderful stress reliever for dogs. Available chew toys help dogs cope with loneliness.

Pro Tip A dog's kennel is often its den. Knowing how to make your dog like its crate keeps it safe and comfortable when you leave it there.

Leave TV/radio On Leave the TV or radio on to quiet your pet while you're away. Due of their gregarious nature, dogs can experience company from even a screen or speaker.
