If your dog gets bored waiting for you to come home, he or she will look for other activities. One such activity is staring out the window.
Dogs love to look out the window. They will look for other dogs, for humans, wait for the mailman, or even watch for squirrels or birds.
Looking out the window is actually an excellent enrichment activity for your dog, and it will help to keep the dog from getting overly playful or destructive.
