One of the most important things you can do to keep your dog healthy, happy and out of trouble is to make sure your best friend isn't bored while you're away.

While it's true that they'll nap a good part of the time, you want to make sure that when he's awake, he has constructive, fun and challenging things to do.

Freeze some kibble or treats into ice cubes, then put a few cubes in your dog's dish on your way out. He'll stay busy licking the cubes to get to the food hidden inside.

Stuff a sturdy rubber toy with kibble, peanut butter or cubed cheese and leave it for your dog to play with. He'll love the extra treat and get a great chewing workout while he's at it.

Create a scent or food trail. Leave a trail of tiny dog treats through the home, or simply rub a piece of aromatic cheese onto several non-absorbent places, leading to a small treat.

Leave the radio or television on low volume in another room to give your dog the feeling that someone else is home with him.
