When you are away at work, you should make sure your dog has some type of entertainment while you are away working. Have you ever returned home from work only to find that your dog has become bored and then left you a bit mess to clean up? Most often upon returning home, you may find out what your dog does to occupy itself while alone at home. When you plan to work away from home, you should train your dog to stay alone at home. This especially applies to new puppies since they can get into all sorts of mischief while you are working.
