Getting back into school can be busy, draining, and sometimes confusing. This transition does not only confuse humans, but it also confuses pets. The summer months tend to represent a time when a lot of families pick the responsibility of introducing a new pet into their home. Now, just a few months later, this new companion will be confused by a stark change in the habits of the humans within the household. The team at Pet Kept Secrets (PKS) wants to help with a few pet-friendly tips to make this transition go over as smoothly as possible:

#1 - Make time alone at home exciting. Take some great treats and hide them throughout the house or yard. This way Fido/Mittens will be rewarded for having safe, non-destructive fun, and exploration.

#2 - Tax free holidays. Some states offer weekends where all sales taxes will be ignored for 48 hours. These weekends not only represent opportunities to save money on back-to-school items, but also a great opportunity to pick-up some less expensive pet gear, treats, and toys. Take a moment to pick-up these items to help ease the new lonely hours that your pet will experience.

#3 - Reinforce the responsibility of being a responsible pet parent. Now that the children are at school it is important that they do not forget about what they promised. Plan time within their schedule that is clearly labeled as time to spend with their pet and show him/her some much needed attention.
