SOMETIMES DOGS NEED SPACE
Make sure your dog knows there are places they can go to be alone to rest and center themselves, because sometimes dog needs space, just like their human counterparts.
Just like people, dogs pick up stressors around them in their own lives, as well as off of the people they live with. So it’s great for them to know that they can take a little time for self-care, and go lie in their crate, bed, or even a little nook in the closet, to have some “me time”.
