A tip for changing back to Standard Time

On Saturday evening in New Zealand, we’ll be changing clocks back to Standard Time.  This is often a difficult day for dogs, because suddenly they haven’t been fed at their ‘normal’ time.

An hour is a long time to wait in dog time!


So, for the next few nights, feed your dog 10 to 15 minutes later than the previous evening.  You’ll transition them to their new feeding in Standard Time with less trauma.
