You have probably been in the situation where you prepare your house for company, anticipate a relaxing evening with friends and then are frustrated when your dog is noisily barking while you are trying to mingle with guests. Although your dog’s behavior may be undesirable, you can make him more relaxed around company by using pet products.
Be careful to avoid neglecting your dog before your gathering. By the time your visitors arrive, he may feel threatened by unknown people in his home or your dog may want attention. Plan some quality time with your dog before the company arrives so he is content or tired by the time visitors appear at your door.
Use a retractable or standard leash to take your dog for a walk before company arrives. Grab some dog toys and let him romp in the park or play fetch in your back yard. The exercise and fresh air may make him ready to relax later.
When you return, fill your dog’s bowl with fresh water and food. Make sure you use a dog bowl that does not slip or slide. Even if he is not hungry or thirsty, his dog bowl will have a beverage and food available when he wants it. If you put him in a separate room after guests arrive, leave some pet toys with him. If he can entertain himself and his needs are met, he is less likely to disturb your guests.
Essenti has retractable leashes, pet bowls, and scented floating rubber dog toys that will help prepare your dog for guests. Our rings, balls, discs and other toys can help make your pet tired before your guests arrive. Our non-skid pet bowls are washable and convenient.
