  1. What a Dog Needs (quarantine or not!)
    • mental stimulation (socialization, investigation)
    • physical stimulation (activity sufficient to cause physical fatigue)
  2. Dogs Will Be Left Alone More Now
    • a bored dog can become destructive
    • an often-kenneled dog can become anxious or shut down dogs are a pack animal and struggle when alone
  3. Ways to Help Your Dog Cope
    • doggy daycare (mental and physical stimulation)
