24/7 Together: 5 tips to prepare your dog for when confinement ends

Our dogs are very important family members that can comfort us during these challenging days. Most of us are spending less time away from home, and in fact more time with our furry family. It is great to have more time with our canine companions and they enjoy the opportunity to be with us all day too.

For some of our buddies, that are already very attached to their family, this can lead to the belief that from now on we will all be together all of the time. Staying alone gets more difficult for these dogs, as they are not used to it any more.

With the help of the German dog trainer, Perdita Lübbe, we've created 5 easy training tips for you to prevent home-alone issues, when confinement ends and your normal routine restarts.
