How to Work From Home with a Dog

Working from home with a dog can be a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, it gives us extra time with the dogs we love, but on the other, our dogs don’t always understand work schedules and deadlines. Balancing playtime with work can be difficult, especially if your dog is used to a high level of attention and lots of play.

However, there are ways to balance work and play. With some preparation, a routine, and planning, you can have time to play with your dog and enjoy their company while also working efficiently for your job. Explore these tips to find the perfect balance for you and your dog.

Take Care of Your Dog Before Work
Many dogs will be disruptive if they are hungry, want to go on their morning walk, or want to play. One of the easiest ways to help your pet be less disruptive is to feed, walk and play with your dog before work.

Even if it means waking up earlier, it will be a more productive day if your dog has all its needs met before you log on. Feed your dog a nutritious breakfast of high-protein dog food. A healthy, well-fed pup will be more playful and less disruptive than a hungry pet.

Feeding your pup the best organic, slow-cooked, human-grade dog food can ensure they get all the necessary vitamins and minerals without other fillers. This will leave them satiated for longer, reducing begging, barking, or disruptions while also giving them the energy to play, go on walks, and have healthy digestion.

Walk your dog for between 15 and 30 minutes, make sure they use the bathroom, and give them at least 20-30 minutes of your undivided attention for playtime. This should provide them with enough stimulation that they should be able to rest and leave you free to work for a few hours.
