Get Your Pets Ready For You To Go Back To Work With These Tips


You’ve been back at work for a few weeks now, and your pet is happy as ever. But does he need you to be home all day? Probably not. As much as I love my kitty and would never want to leave him behind when I go out, here are some tips on how to transition your pets back into their normal routines when they’re not with us:

New work routines can be difficult for pets to adapt to

While it may be difficult for pets to adjust to your new work routine, there are steps you can take to help make their transition easier.

  • Make sure your pet is healthy and well-groomed before leaving for work. This will help them feel more comfortable in their environment when you’re gone.
  • Create a special “leave-me” place where they can stay until it’s time for you to pick them up at the end of the day or week (if applicable). A crate with toys and treats will also help them feel less anxious throughout this period as well!
  • Bring along some food treats so they’ll know what’s coming next—and hope that they don’t get too hungry while waiting around all day long!

Keep a schedule

If you’re moving back to work, there are a few things that need to be done. The first is setting up a feeding schedule, walking, and playing with your pet. This can help increase their happiness while you’re gone and make them feel like they’re getting extra attention when you come home after being gone for several days at once.

  • Set up a routine for yourself as well: You should also set up an alert system so that if something happens while you’re gone (like a snowstorm), they know what their next step should be in terms of keeping themselves occupied or otherwise entertained until further notice. If possible, try not to let this happen again; it may seem like too much trouble, but trust me—it’ll be worth it!

Your pets might need some extra exercise and some special time with you to get used to your new routine.

The first thing to do is to make sure that your pets get enough exercise. Pets need some special time with you so they can get used to your new routine, but it’s also important that they don’t become bored or restless while you’re gone.

If you have a cat, consider taking her out for walks around the neighborhood or moving into an apartment where she can easily reach all the windows and doors in one room (or two). If you have a dog, take him on long runs through parks or along sidewalks near where he lives; he’ll enjoy running away from home while still feeling close enough to check in on things every once in a while!

Don’t forget about mental stimulation!

Mental stimulation is just as important as physical exercise and can be as simple as playing a game of fetch or taking the dog for a walk. It can also be more complex, such as teaching your dog new tricks or practicing obedience skills in advance of when you’re returning to work full-time again.

Care for your pet’s emotional needs as much as you care for his physical ones.

  • Talk to your pet about your new work schedule.
  • Give them lots of attention before you leave.
  • Keep the house as quiet as possible while you are gone.
  • Make sure they have plenty of food and water during this time, too!

You should also consider leaving them a note for the babysitter so that they know where everything is located in case they need anything while you’re away (or if something happens—like poopy socks on the stairs).

Pets are like people in that they’re happiest when they have structure in their lives

Your pet is like you in that it needs structure. The structure can help your pet feel safe and secure, adjust to change, bond with you, and feel loved. And if you’re going back to work after a long absence (or even if you don’t), having this kind of structure in place will make returning home easier for both of us!


Your pet might be a little confused about things when you leave for work. But don’t worry, he’ll get used to it! Just make sure that you keep up with his routine and give him plenty of love—and maybe even a treat or two.
