Dogs LOVE routine. I’ve got two puppies (well I call them that because they’re small lol) Kimo is the long haired chihuahua mix he is 10 years old and Balthazar is the short haired one who is 3 years old. Today I wanted to post about my routine with them.
At 9:30AM – I take them out to walk then let them eat breakfast. Then they hang out with me while I mess on the computer or watch a movie.
12:30PM – I let them out again.
Then they hang out with me as I clean the apartment and read a book.
If I plan on leaving the apartment I put them in their kennels. I find they are much calmer when I leave them there. When I get back I take them out to walk again which is usually around 4-5PM.
Then we hang out just around the apartment again then the last time we go out is around 7:30-8PM.
They seem to really like this schedule and every time I divert from it I suddenly find they form selective hearing and they just generally get anxious. Dogs are funny like that! I am only able to have this routine for them because I currently don’t have a day job. It will be interesting to see how my routine with them will change in the future.
Do you have dogs? What is your everyday routine like with them?
