It's Back-to-School Time! Is Your Dog Ready?

 
Labor Day Weekend is here! While it's technically summer until September 22nd, Labor Day weekend unofficially marks the end of summer here and thoughts surround notebooks, laptops, backpacks, and school supplies as next week marks Back-to-School time here in our area! While kids and parents may or may not be ready to get back in the educational swing, the question is, are your pets ready for the change? Here's a helpful FiveSibes infographic with our top tips to help make this time of year less stressful for the entire family (and some of these tips are applicable to other pets as well! We had a dwarf bunny who would get so excited, he'd get bunny "zoomies" whenever my daughter came home from school!):

Enjoy the Labor Day Weekend and have fun celebrating what's left of summer. And for those already in school, and to those about ready to begin, here's to a happy, safe, and successful school year for all!

 

 For today's FiveSibes Flashback Friday memory, once again here's our very studious Bandit, in a photo from 2012, all ready to dive into some homework! Will you or your dog be starting school soon?

 "Woo. I love school! I'm studying the languages 
of Dog and my native Siberian Husky."

  The Flashback Friday Blog Hop is brought to you by us - the FiveSibes!  We welcome our co-host Love is being Owned by a Husky! We hope you'll find a photo or video from Memory Lane, post it, and link up to our Blog Hop each Friday! If you don't catch it on Friday, you can link up any time during the week! To catch our past Flashbacks, just enter "Flashback Friday" in the search box.  Come join us! We'd love to see your pets' Flashback pics! Just grab our badge below:






We are also joining in the Pet Parade, hosted by Rascal & Rocco, Bionic Basil, our co-host, Owned by a Husky, and Barking from the Bayou! Be sure to visit them and their hoppers!

    1. Thank you! You guys start earlier than us, but then your summer starts earlier, too, right?! :-)

  5. Love your infographic artwork! As a dog trainer, I have a lot of new dog training students enroll in the fall. Maybe they read your tips. :)

    1. In February, that is very different! How long does it run? Thanks so much for your kind words! Hope your school year is going great!

  7. What a fun infographic! I pinned it. I love the idea of the dog escorting the kid to the bus stop.

    1. Thanks so much! I had fun creating it! I really appreciate the Pin! :-)

  8. It is so hard to believe that it is already time for school to begin again. My husband is a school bus driver for the intermediate (special needs) school district in our area. The kitties won't be going back to school, but they will notice the schedule change. I love your infographic! Have a happy Labor Day!

    1. I know! Even though we had a nice, lovely long summer, it still went by so fast! Tuesday the kids go back here! I hope your husband has a safe and good school year! I'm glad you liked the infographic! Enjoy your Labor Day!

  9. Those are some good tips for us and the pups!

  10. This looks like a great Infographic but unfortunately it's too small for me to read and I can't get it large enough to see - it's probably my PC's limitations. I pinned the post but can't get the InfoGraphic to Pin. Grrr! I so need a new computer! I'll try again on my phone, I bet it will be better. Back to school is definitely impactful to pets, they're like "Hey, where did everyone go? What's happening?" Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks, Cathy! I sure hope you'll be able to see it on your phone! Could be a good reason to get a new PC! ;-)

    2. Yes it is back to school here but my daughter graduated a few weeks ago. Some good tips. Kilo still likes to play rough house games at 4.00-4.30 every day as the little boy he lived with in one of his homes came home from school then.

    3. Thanks! Congratulations on your daughter's graduation! Wishing her much success on all her future endeavors! Isn't that something how Kilo remembers that play time?!

  11. Without kids in our house, back to school season isn't too different for us. We do look forward to seeing the kids walking to school on our morning walks, though! :)

    1. There is something so sweet about that time of year, isn't there? My daughter graduated 10 years ago, but seeing the children all walking and laughing on the way to school brings back those days of innocence and youth. She's having a baby in November, my first grandchild, so I'll be looking forward to being part of that again!

  12. I don't have kids but Layla but its a great post for those that do

  13. Great tips - Back to School time is a critical time for Pets... Once the family is back in the school routine Pets can get bored & lonely... & might wander. So, thanks for addressing this topic.

  14. These are great tips. Humans forget that animals get used to the summer routine and we miss everyone when things change up. Great infographic.

    1. Thank you, Lola! I know our Huskies miss us if we leave for even an hour to go to the store! I remember when my daughter was in school, our pups, although we had only one of our Sibes and our senior rescue dog (her buddy since puppyhood) at the time, oh they really missed her and loved when she walked back in the door from school!

  15. These are great tips! I had no idea bunnies were so 'in tune' with their people. Loved reading that your daughter had such a connection.

    1. Thank you, Sadie! Sugar was just so amazing! Truly a wonderful little bunny that was besties with my daughter and our adopted shelter dog who was just a puppy at the time! He loved to lay on my daughter's lap, with the puppy, and have my daughter read books to him, go for rides in her Barbie car, and just hang out and watch TV on the arm of our chair at night!

  16. We never thought about needing to help dogs with Back to School.
