  1. Create a Routine.

Very much like humans, animals react very well to routines. Create a routine for Waking up, sleeping, eating, going on walks for your pet to encourage good behavior. Making routines lead to more disciplined animals, this inversely leads to better behavior around people and less stress. This also helps your pet not get anxious, as they are following a set routine. This also makes your life much easier, if you manage to sync your pet’s routine with your own! That way, you can co-exist and create a happy home for your furry buddies!

  1. Nutrition!

Make sure that you consult your vet and create a nutritious and healthy diet for your pet. Much like humans, pet require healthy and nutritious food. There are various options for healthy food that you can find for your Cat or Dog on www.dumbledog .com!

  1. Reward Good Behavior, Discourage Bad Behavior.

Much like dealing with toddlers, when training your pet, it is important to react appropriately to their responses to your training.

For example, if you are training your puppy always carry a bag of their favorite treats on your person to reward them when they follow your cues and respond to your training. If however, your pet doesn’t listen to your commands or does something undesirable like poop on the couch, it is important to make them realize that they have done something wrong. Hence, you should not pet them if they do something wrong, and discourage the bad behavior by a time out or sternly but gently saying no. It is very important to not use violence as a training method. Animals are complex creatures just like humans, and it is not justified to resort to violence as a training tool.

Instead use treats to reward good behaviors and timeouts to discourage the bad!

  1. Spend time with your pet.

Animals are selfless, loving and do not expect much. Make sure to spend some time playing with your dog, petting them and comforting them every single day.
