No Time for Pet
Experts in the animal field agree that a dog requires a mere 15 minutes of one-on-one time with his human per day to be happy, healthy, and well-adjusted! That could be simply spent laying in bed at night watching t.v. together, playing ball in the backyard for 15 minutes while dinner is cooking, or going for a walk or jog!
Cats and dogs can also benefit from environmental enrichment. Setting aside a few minutes each day to make their lives more interesting could make a big difference to their behavior.
And don't forget pets reduce personal stress and can add years to your life.
