Cats and dogs are happy but confused to have their humans home in the middle of the work day during this pandemic. Experts say that pets might be confused by how different our energy and stress levels are when we're focusing on a work project instead of watching television or making dinner. So the pet gets stressed because we are!
Pets can be confused by the stressful energy their human companions bring into the home when they're telecommuting, something that can be reduced for dog and human alike with regular play sessions or walks.
**FYI: To avoid becoming too stressed, simply spending a few minutes playing with a dog every few hours can be beneficial for both owner and animal.
