With more time at home over the past year, many have found solace and companionship in their pets, old and new. In fact, Studies show that 11.3 million Americans have had a new pet during the pandemic. It’s no surprise that this had an impact on what Shipt saw in terms of the rise in pet-related items over the past year – up almost 140%.
“We know that one of the perks of being at home over the past year has been spending more time with our pets,” said Molly Snyder, Chief Communications Officer at Shipt. “As the world begins to open up, consumers expect more items to be delivered quickly and safely to their homes from retailers and brands they know and trust – and pet supplies are no exception.
Now that pet owners are slowly resuming their activities outside the home, including returning to the office, it’s more important than ever to make sure our furry friends are entertained and occupied when they are alone. at home. To help owners (and pets!) Make that transition, Shipt is helping get all of those pet essentials delivered so you can spend more time cuddling – plus, of course, help a lucky owner-pet couple win free pet food for one year. The delivery service also teamed up with best friends and rescues Henry and Baloo and their owners to share tips for keeping pets happy and healthy throughout the year.
“Henry had very great separation anxiety when we weren’t at home which is why we found him a best friend in Baloo. They both gave us so much joy and emotional support throughout. in their 40s, we want to make sure we can keep them just as happy when we can’t be with them all day long, ”the owners said. Cynthia bennett and André Sibilsky. “This partnership with Shipt is the perfect opportunity for us to have all of their essentials delivered throughout the year and to share the tips we’ve learned to make them feel loved even when we’re not with them. ! “
Henry and Baloo offer the following tips to help pets adjust to spending more time alone at home:
- Before you go, turn on the pet television to entertain your pet and for ambient noise. Humans are quite loud (we talk, do the dishes, listen to music), so pet TV is a great option to keep your home from suddenly being very quiet.
- We love pet cameras. Not only can you check on your pet from anywhere, but some cameras allow you to talk to them and give them treats! It really helps your pet to feel right at home even when you are not.
- Treat puzzles are a great way to keep your pet mentally stimulated while you are away. You can also hide treats in your house! We love using Shipt to keep our treats in stock and get all of our pet essentials delivered.
- If you are a dog owner, take a walk with your four-legged friend before going to work to burn some of his energy and prepare him for a nap when you leave!
Dr. Ragen McGowan adds some advice of its own:
- Pets thrive on routine, so start your new routine now, before you have to return to work, to keep your pets on a schedule.
- Find reasons to leave home to help your pets get used to your absence and also give them the opportunity to enthusiastically greet you when you return home.
