June 24, 2011 - PRLog -- JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA  –June 24th is “Take Your Dog to Work Day,” designated to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage their adoption from the various rescue organizations. This annual event asks pet lovers to celebrate the humane-canine bond and promote pet adoption by encouraging their employers to support TYDTWDay by opening their workplace to employees’ four-legged friends on this one special day. Business and Life Coach, Jaynine Howard, takes a breather to join in the festivities.    

“Being a dog owner, foster mommy and businesswoman can be chaotic,” says Howard, Dream Catcher, “As difficult as it can get, it’s also an absolutely wonderful experience. The key to survival is simply to remind yourself to be the pack leader and only expect behavior out of your dog that you would expect out of an employee. This means no loud barking or fighting and only eating in the designated dining area. During Take Your Dog to Work Day, I want to share some of what I’ve learned so far about being a doggy mom who works from home.”

Here are some of the helpful hints on how to work and be a dog owner without going too crazy:

1.   Make a plan. “Planning is key for any business, but you need to really be on top of things to manage your business and your dogs,” she says. “Once you have a plan to stick with it.”

2.   Develop a schedule. “Just like kids, dogs thrive on a schedule; it helps them and you to know what to expect and when to expect it,” says Howard.  “Once you have a set schedule for them, you can schedule your work around it.”

3.   Supplies. Howard suggests keeping a notebook with you and whenever you remember something you need to get done, write it down and refer back to it when you get a chance. It is also a good idea to have a lint brush handy as well as dog toys and dog treats. You will want to reward good behavior and provide something for them to chew on so your stiletto does not become a dog chew toy.

4.   Get some extra time when the dogs are down for a nap. “If you are a morning person, wake up a bit early to get some work done before the house wakes,” she says. “If you are a night owl, stay up a bit later than normal.  Just a couple of extra hours will get you farther ahead than you would think.” “Nap time is also a great time to make client calls without fear of interruptions.”

5.   Go to bed early, tape your favorite show that you are missing and watch it during lunch when you can use the pick-me-up.  “It’s important to give mommy some time too,” she says.
