Quick view: 4 Tips to Keep Your Dog Active During Quarantine
Written by Guest Contributor: Kevin Li, CEO at PlayDate Millions of Americans are all feeling the effects of self-quarantine. It’s a necessary part of the process to keep our families healthy and safe. On the plus side, the World Health Organization has stated that “there’s no evidence that [our pets] can transmit the disease to humans and play a role in spreading COVID-19." Unfortunately, as we spend more time indoors, our dogs spend less time outside (checking pee-mail, chasing furry friends at the dog park or meeting new human ones). Ultimately, they’re not getting the much-needed mental stimulation and exercise that they need to stay healthy and happy. We can get so focused on the very critical issues of staying healthy and safe that we can sometimes forget that our pets are looking to us to keep them healthy too! We need to do whatever we can to keep them active and stimulated while under self-quarantine. Here are four ideas for keeping your dog stimulated during these trying times, some of which we as dog owners should be doing regularly even during normal times:   Tip 1: Hiding treats around the house Dogs love to hunt, find and sniff in the wild.

Life has a funny way of mixing things up every once in a while and we find ourselves at home more than usual. As dedicated pet parents, it’s our job to make sure we provide our pets with the tools they need to stay safe and engaged when life looks different for them, too. Here are some basics to keep in mind: Your pet’s body language speaks volumes While Wags and Mouser can’t talk to us, they definitely know how to walk the walk. Dogs and cats have spent centuries learning how to best communicate with their owners using their ears, eyes, tail, facial expressions, and body position. Look out for these easy to spot body language cues to know how your pet feels: Spotting the signs of a nervous or anxious dog is one of the best steps to preventing your dog from fleeing. If your pup begins to exhibit destructive behaviour, whine or whimper, pace, avoid eye contact, tremble, hide, excessively lick, or other displacement behaviors it’s time to take steps to ensure your pet has what he needs to feel safe.    Keep your pet feeling safe and engaged with an enriched environment A dog who is happy at home usually feels less of a need to dash when she sees an open...

Quick view: Working Remotely: How We Make It Work
Working from home can be fantastic. You get to design your own office space, you don’t have that nosey co-worker poking their head in every hour, and you don’t have to change out of your sweats if you don’t want to. All of that is great, until your neighbor starts firing up every power tool they have, your kids demand their third snack of the day, and your dog poops on the rug. Lots of people see working from home as a luxury, and it really can be, but it can also be difficult when surrounded by so many distractions. At PetHub, we are lucky to have the option to work remotely, and many of our employees do this every day. So our team took some time to provide you with some great tips on how to make working from home be a productive and successful part of your work life!   Lorien - Chief Operating Officer From the beginning of PetHub in 2010, there was a culture of remote working. Because the company was started by my life partner, Tom, PetHub has always been a literal part of our HOME. Our first 3,000 tags were fulfilled from our dining room table. Customer care tickets were first answered from our living room couch. Product photo shoots in our backyard. Trade show gear... (go to article)

Quick view: 5 Ways To Fix Your Dog’s Home-Alone Loneliness
We know that when you’re at work or out running errands you’re thinking about your dog. You wonder if they are safe. You worry about whether they are bored and you assume they are lonely. What’s a pet parent to do? You can’t always stay home. You certainly can’t take your dog with you everywhere you go (remember, NEVER leave a dog in a car)! What’s a pet parent to do? We have some suggestions and have come up with five ways to “fix” your dog’s home-alone loneliness and relieve some of his separation anxiety.   Tire him out. Every pet parent knows that a tired dog is a happy, and probably less-destructive dog, right?
