Happy Love Your Pet Day!
Many homes in the United States have at the very least one dog and cat. Their unconditional love and companionship is something that we humans could learn from. Our Furry Companions give us so so many benefits without asking for anything in return. For National Love Your Pet Day, perhaps you want to get your Furry Companions a new plaything or a unique treat, or perhaps you would like to take them for an additional long walk or merely spend some additional "alone time" with them. Whatever you end up doing, Cherish your Furry Companions!
Happy Love Your Pet Day!
Does your dog growl or bark when an unknown person approaches your home or loud noises at night? It's any issue many dog owners deal with.
Dogs may also growl or bark when they see prey, such as squirrels, and they may bark for attention, food or if they are distressed. Dogs often growl when they are fearful or trying to assert themselves in a situation. If the dog's fear or assertiveness is alleviated by barking or growling, the dog will learn that their conduct is appropriate and the conduct may become more severe or frequent.
Socializing your puppy dog can help
Acclimate your pup to a variety of different people, noises, settings and situations to help lessen anxiety as your pup grows. Proper training is essential to preventing conduct concerns, such as barking and growling.
Cold weather affects pets just like their people. While you are taking precautions to protect yourself from cooler temperatures and environmental changes, you need to safeguard your dogs and cats, too.
Pet care and lifestyle expert Charlotte Reed shares her top tips for dealing with changing weather conditions and other seasonal concerns:
1. Daily dressing
Fluctuating seasonal temperatures, changing weather conditions and daylight savings time make it necessary for you and your dog to dress for warmth, dryness and comfort, especially when you both are walking in the morning and evening hours. Pet owners need a coat with lots of pockets, like the 4 Season Convertible Jacket from Let’s Go Design that is waterproof with reflective piping. Constructed with lots of specialized pockets plus features like extractable pick-up bags, treat liner, belt/leash, hood with visor, retractable keychain, you will always be ready no matter what the weather forecast. For your pet, consider a full weather jumpsuit like the Cover All Doggy Rain Coat, which is made of breathable, ultra soft nylon that doesn’t make noise when dogs move around. Plus, it’s easy to put on and keeps your dog’s back, legs and chest comfortably warm. It even has a hood to protect the neck and head! Remember, buy pet gear big enough so that you can layer it with a sweater when it gets colder. Also, consider a dog coat in a bright color like orange for maximum visibility.
