Okay so we know that dogs can respond to particular commands, but the question “does my dog understand me” becomes a little bit more relevant when we try to figure out how much pets actually comprehend when we talk to them. When you talk to your dog, a tail wag, bark or arching of their back can signify some degree of understanding. You might not be too far off the mark if you feel like talking to your pet is engaging in some degree of meaningful conversation.
Getting a great dog or cat sitter can be a fairly stressful experience. Distilling all the quirks that your pet has, their way of doing things and routines for your sitter can ensure that your trip goes off with minimal stress for yourself and your pet. Ensure that you set up an initial meet and greet with your sitter so that they can get an idea about your pets and get a complete brief on what it will be like looking after the house and its inhabitants. Make sure to let them know where you keep food medicine, toys and anything else that would be relevant for the pet sitter to know.
How far would you go to make your pet look more interesting? A pet salon in Yekaterinburg, Russia offers extreme makeovers and styling for pets, for those pet owners who are bored with how their pets look. Using bright, colourful dyes and styling fur into specific shapes, salon owner Daria Gotz has made it possible to make your cat look like a dragon (see above picture). Harmless fun? Can it really be 100% safe for your beloved animal companion to be subjected to this kind of extreme styling?
Cats shed fur. If you own a cat - or several - then you are constantly reminded of this every day as you wade through the abundance of fur your beloved fluffy companion has shed. You love your fluffy kitty, but even the most dedicated and loving owner may start losing their cool upon finding their favourite sweater (or their entire collection of sweaters) covered in cat fur. Luckily, there are several effective courses of action to take in order to minimise the extent of this problem.
The great thing about dogs is that it is quite easy to train them to play games due to their incredibly social nature. There are plenty of things that you can teach your pet which can be cute or interesting but the best things to get your furry friend to learn are games that are fun for the both of you. Running around in a park, searching for things can be a great bonding experience for you and your companion. We’re going to focus on games that are good exercise and most importantly, an absolute blast to enjoy together.
