Some say that owning a pet is better than anything else you could own in the world. Some of you would even say that you aren’t interested in starting a family; your only desire is to have a little fur baby who loves you just as much as you love it. And it’s true, they do capture your heart. Whether you chose to go down the route of rescuing, or having one from their earliest days, that intense feeling of love is always going to connect the two of you. Or perhaps three or four if you really love your animals. Fur babies can come in all shapes and sizes, depending on the type of animal you’re interested in the most. The most common are cats and dogs, but there are so many more weird and wonderful pets that you could choose from. Whatever chosen, we should all have the common goal of making them the happiest fur baby alive, and here’s how we think you can do just that.
Building The Right Kind Of Bond
Building a bond with your fur baby is going to begin from the moment that you lock eyes with them. You’ll know from that moment on if they’re going to be the right pet for you, and it should hopefully be love at first sight. To build a strong bond, you should focus as much time on them as possible, especially if you’ve picked out a puppy. Puppies are notorious for needing time and attention, and without building that bond within the first few weeks, you’ll struggle to get them to be obedient in their teenage years. Taking them to puppy classes, socializing them with other humans and dogs, and taking them for long walks, will all help with obedience. You also need to make sure that they don’t become protective, or clingy towards you. Protective dogs can be rather aggressive, and clingy can mean you won’t be able to leave them at home alone for too long. To make sure this doesn’t happen, leaving them alone for an hour a day, in the beginning, will build up their tolerance to being without you.
Technology Can Help More Than Ever Before
We’re at a time where technology is aiding us with absolutely everything, more than it ever has before. But we don’t often link technology and caring for our fur babies together, but there are some new gadgets that we think you’ll love. For cats, there’s an automatic water dispenser that will track how much water your cat is drinking during a day. Or, there’s a food dispenser that will interact with the paired collar, dispensing food for your dog when they need it, and you might not be there. Have a look at pet technology news to keep yourself updated with all of the latest technology that might come in handy when looking after your fur baby. Even technology can now help you to be a better pet owner!
Giving Them The Best Life
Finally, just make sure that you’re giving them the best life that you possibly can, be showering them with love and attention. At the base of it all, all your pets want is food, water, and love.
