When you hear the word “training” in reference to pets, you probably think about training dogs. And, as the old saying goes, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” But what about cats? Can they be taught and trained, too?
During a global health crisis, our everyday lives are disrupted. As people work remotely, schools close and social events are cancelled, we are spending a lot more time than usual at home. While we may be going stir crazy ourselves, our pets are also likely to be affected by these changes—and not necessarily for the better!
It’s officially springtime, and the nicer weather is encouraging people everywhere to open the windows, grab the cleaning supplies and do a bit of spring cleaning to freshen up their homes. Although spring cleaning can be a refreshing chore, for pet owners, it can also be the source of danger for cats and dogs.
Not all relationships last forever, and there may come a point when you and your partner decide to part ways. This process can be extremely painful…but it’s even more so when you share ownership of a furry friend. Having a pet in the middle of a separation can be tricky—both for you and for your pet.
Few things are more frustrating than coming home and happily greeting your dog, only to be met with a pile of stinky dog poop on your freshly cleaned floors. When this happens on a single, rare occasion, you might think nothing of it, but if your dog is regularly pooping in the house, you might begin to think they’re doing it on purpose.
Every time you use a kitchen utensil, plate or bowl, you more than likely put it in the sink or dishwasher to be washed thoroughly before you use it again. This is common practice to avoid spreading germs or allowing bacteria to multiply. But when it comes to a pet’s food or water bowls, many pet owners can’t recall the last time they washed them!
Cats are cuddly, fuzzy and soft…that is, apart from their claws! Cat claws are a major point of concern for pet parents because of their capacity for destruction—namely, toward your furniture and rugs.
Your pets are surrounded by noise and strange machines within your home. Ringing phones, firing furnaces and televisions complement the sounds of people walking around, closing doors and clanking dishes. But when the time comes to clean your home and you pull out the vacuum cleaner, your pets are likely go running.
For many families, their dog is their first “baby.” If you’ve raised them since they were a puppy, your family is all they’ve known, and you’ve gotten the joy of watching them grow and learn over the years. Unfortunately, this dynamic can get more complicated when a new baby is on the way.
When going through a separation, it can be hard enough to determine what to do with one pet that both you and your ex love and adore. However, when it comes to divorce and multiple pets, these decisions can be even harder.
