Talk to Your Pets While You’re at Work

There is nothing like walking in the door after a long day at work and being greeted your dog’s excited bark, your cat’s happy purring, paws reaching to be picked up, and sloppy kisses. You enjoy this greeting after a long, busy, tiring day at work, but what was your pet’s day like? For some pets, workdays are lonely ones and for the people who love those pets, workdays are associated with a lot of guilt.

Pets who suffer from separation anxiety can get into a lot of mischief when you’re not home. They can disturb neighbors with loud barking, damage your home, go to the bathroom where they aren’t supposed to, and in the worst cases, even hurt themselves. There’s a growing trend among pet owners who want to help their animals cope with workday loneliness – Skype!

Many pet owners are using Skype to check in on their animals during the day and give them a little love through the wonder of technology when they can’t be there to scratch their ears in person. Pet owners who do this find that their animals seem a little less lonely, and they feel a little less guilty.

This is a fun way to keep in touch with your animals while you’re at work, but if you’re dealing with a serious separation anxiety problem, like if your animal is hurting himself while you’re gone, be sure to talk to your vet to work toward a solution.

How do you help your pet with loneliness during the day?
