Pets are wonderful addition in the family. They are also very distinct in their personalities and characteristics. Some pet owners don’t go for the conventional cats and dogs some go for the more exotic like tarantulas, snakes and lizards. However, if you are one of those who have the fluffy ones like cats and dogs, there might be a time where you need a cat or dog trainer to help you with their unruly behavior. Not all of course because some are easily trained but some also do not.
If you are planning to get a dog you should consider your lifestyle. There are dogs who prefer a high energy lifestyle and there are those who likes to plant themselves on the couch and cuddle all day. If that is so, learn what your dog will be like. If you like lounging around get a dog who doesn’t like to have a high energy work out.
- Pets for Aspiration
Never ever get a dog because you wanted to start a healthy lifestyle. This in some cases will leave the owner and the dog frustrated. You should consider the dog’s lifestyle and yours so make sure that you are able to give them a lee way. If you have a high energy dog make sure to take it for walks or play fetch with it.
- Appropriate Equipment
There isn’t much to the equipment of your pet, maybe a pet bed, some bowl for dog food and water, a collar and leash and some treats. However, there are some things that you should consider for the dog you have so if you aren’t sure ask an expert.
- Dogs Temperament
As an owner you should prepare yourself mentally and physically. Your dog will not be the same to others. Some, will learn fast, some will fight you all the way. For this it is required for every owner to understand this and to be patient with the dog. There will be techniques for this and if you aren’t up for the challenge you can ask help from a dog trainer.
- Names and Treats
Give your dog a practical name like Pao pao, Chow chow, Coco, Buddy, Rocco and many more you can choose from. This is so when you call them they will be able to hear the distinct sound and they will know that it is them you are summoning. Also, when you are still training your dog with their name give them treats so they know that they are doing a great job.
You should set a schedule for training for your dog. This does not mean that you should set an hour of training, rather you should set a 5-minute dedicated training for your day divided throughout the day. It is important that as owner you are consistent with this so that your dog will not have a habit of misbehaving.
