1. Leaving Toys Everywhere

Doggies like to play with toys to keep themselves entertained, but they can get easily distracted and tend to move on to other playthings, therefore leaving stuff in random places. Keep their toy basket well hidden if you don't want your house to be scattered with stuffed animals and rubber balls.

2. Sleeping And Dreaming

Like us, dogs often take a nap when they're bored, but what's surprising is that they also dream in pretty much the same way we do. When they flex their legs and twitch their eyes while sleeping, they're likely to be dreaming about something they've experienced earlier that day.

3. Destroying Stuff

Don't get mad if your pooch makes a mess when you're not home. Dogs tend to get anxious when they're left alone, and they often do some chewing or digging to calm themselves down. Make sure to keep your valuable possessions out of their reach. Moreover, you should also ask for professional advice if destructive behaviors occur frequently.

4. Eating

Don't take away your dog's unfinished meal too quickly! Many popular dog breeds are grazers who prefer to spread out their meals throughout the day. So, when you're at work, your furbaby may be snacking at home!

5. Barking And Howling

When your dog is left alone, he may fret about your absence and voice his distress by barking or even howling. If this kind of behavior is persistent, you should consider taking your pooch to a vet before his separation anxiety gets any worse.

6. Playing With Buddies

If you own more than one dog, you probably have noticed that they can be quite vigorous together. Make sure they get along before you leave them unsupervised, or they'll likely turn your lovely home into a "battlefield."

7. Waiting For You

More than anything else, your doggie will wait patiently for you to come home. Dogs are social animals who desire human companionship, so be sure to try to play with them for a while when you get back to show them some love as well.
