Most everyone with kids should be back to school by now, right? But sometimes it's a big change for your pet, having to deal with a new routine. Especially if it changes things like when to use the bathroom, or how much activity they get during the day. It could lead to bathroom accidents, or separation anxiety and other behavioral issues.

I'm an ambassador for And they have some great tips for how to help your pet get acclimated to the new routine. Here's a few:

1. Treats, Puzzles and Toys: Sturdy toys, treat toys like Kongs, and puzzle toys are great ways for your pet to entertain themselves. With these toys, they can spend time, they get something special and they tire themselves out.
2. Get your dog some doggy time: Doggy daycare or doggy playdates helps tucker your dog out. A tired dog is a happy dog. Also, if you replace time with the kids with time with four-legged friends, they won't miss them as much when they're at school. 
3. Training. Enroll your dog in obedience training, and be sure to include the kids in that training.
