How to Talk to Your Dog in Three Steps

How to Talk to Your Dog in Three  Steps



















Have you ever wondered what your dog was thinking? What he or she really say to you once they tilt their head that way? Or why they are doing certain things? While an animal psychologist might attempt to offer you evidence, it's never completely accurate. So why not just take a couple of minutes each day to find out the way to communicate together with your dog and obtain the answers straight from the horse's... um, dog's mouth? Before we get to the three simple steps you'll do to speak together with your pet, let's mention those doggie psychologists for a moment. Psychologists specialize in behavioral patterns and why we as humans do what we do. Animal psychologists do an equivalent, but we as humans know that psychology isn't so correct. So it stands to reason that doggie psychologists wouldn't be too right either. Besides, it isn't like they ask the dog to seek out out why they are doing what they are doing, i…

Seven Steps to Make a Dog and Cat Live Together



Seven Steps to Make a Dog and Cat Live Together



      Whether you bring a dog to a house where a cat is living, a cat to a house where a dog is living, or you're trying to adapt already existing animals to live together better, you'll need good preparation to build a good relationship between them. First, make sure your home has ample space to keep them apart. You will need to separate the animals for several days, so your home must have several rooms. Also, make sure your dog follows your orders. You will need to retrain him for obedience if he doesn't respond well to your orders. Don't make their first encounter together bad because of the dog's aggressive treatment. Here are some steps that you should follow to make your dog and your cat live together:

Separate them for 3 or 4 days before their First Meeting
                  The first step is separating them for 3 or 4 days before their first meeting. Don't make your dog chase your cat. Separate them first, and wait 3 or 4 days before presenting them face-to-face. Animals need time to learn about each other's smell and get used to new homes before dealing with other animals. The cat and dog will treat each other aggressively if you force them to deal with each other suddenly. Separate them in different rooms until they calm down. Another trick is mixing their smell by petting the cat then petting the dog while they are separated
Exchange The Rooms Between The Dog And The Cat

       The second step is exchanging the rooms between the dog and the cat. This allows them to smell each other without confronting each other. Smells are a very important way to introduce animals to each other. Try wrapping a towel around your cat then place it under your dog's bowl. This helps the dog to get used to the cat's smell and accept it.

Let Them Smell Each Other From The Door Bottom


     The third step is making them smell each other from the door bottom. This helps them accept the new smells of each other, even though they don't see each other.
Try feeding them near the two different sides of the same door. This forces them to cope with the smell of each other.

Let Them Get Used To The Presence Of Each Other Without Any Physical Contact
    The fourth step is making your pets get accused of each other’s presence without any physical contact. Hold the cat in your arms until it calms down. Ask a friend or family member to bring the guided dog into the room slowly. Don't let them contact physically. Place the cat in a box while the dog is wearing the collar. In this way, you get sure that there is no physical contact between them during the first meeting.
Show Them An Equal Amount Of Love During The First Meeting

     The fifth step is showing them an equal amount of love during the first meeting. Animals feel jealous when a new pet gets more attention than them. Show both of them the same amount of love during the first confronting.

Separate Them Again


      The sixth step is separating them again. Do not force them to stay for a long time; this will exhaust them, which may lead to conflict. Make a good first meeting by making it fun and short. Increase the number and duration of the meetings gradually.

Leaving The Dog Collar When The Pets Are Calm


        The seventh step is leaving the dog collar once the pets feel comfortable toward each other.  Leave the collar around the dog and let the cat roam in the room. After a couple of weeks, your dog must have gotten used to not chasing the cat. Never let your dog and your cat alone to avoid any aggressive treatment.
