Separating Business From Pleasure

When your work happens at home – or perhaps, your home is your business – it’s not always easy to turn off the computer and take time to enjoy yourself. But it’s not just your time that needs to be clearly defined as belonging to your business as opposed to taking time to relax, other areas, too, need clear definitions.

First, you need separate insurance for your business, even if it is in your home. Your home insurance coverage will not cover anything that is damaged or stolen when it is for your business.

Every day needs to be the same and you need to give him constant attention when you can; this will make the toilet training procedure a lot easier. Your training process will take longer if you are working out of the house quite often as your dog will need to go and the house is the only place that he can.

Dog Hygiene Basics

Giving your dog a bath is important, but not as critical as most people seem to believe. If your dog is healthy, he really doesn’t need to be bathed more that once every few months, but most of us put them in the tub or under the hose more often to get rid of that doggie smell and look shinier. Although most dogs do not enjoy getting a bath, it is a good bonding experience. They will appreciate the contact and attention they get from their owner. This is also an excellent time to do some other required “maintenance” tasks that we often forget about, such as ear cleaning, brushing their teeth, and checking for fleas and ticks.
