5. Leaving your dog at home alone too often
You did not get a dog to leave him or her at home all day long. They enjoy running, playing, and fetching, so when you leave your dog at home frequently without any stimulation, it gets pretty annoying. Not only is it something that can affect your dog’s behavior, training, and mental health, it can eventually lead to losing pertinent skills that he or she has gained over the years. If your life dictates that you are not home very much, if at all, consider options to keep your dog happy. There are dog sitters, day cares, and other dog-friendly places you can take him or her. The point is to spend time with this close family member.
