Get a Pal for Your Pet
I can’t stress often enough that the reason why so many dogs get into trouble around the home is because they are bored!
Fortunately behaviorists and toy manufacturers are pushing the idea more and more that our pets need both mental and physical stimulation. (The same goes for cats too by the way.)
There are lots of fabulous puzzle toys for dogs that really test their intelligence and give them something to do to keepthem busy by trying to puzzle out and retrieve the tasty treats hidden within the puzzle. There are lots of toys to offer comfort and fun too.
There’s another way to keep your canine furkid happy too. Get him a friend!
There are many adoption agencies that are promoting two is better than one – for the pets’ sake!
Naturally, this has to first and foremost be a financial decision. Can you afford to double up on food, pet accessories and veterinary bills? And, if you can, the answer is to seriously consider getting a pal for your pet.
The PAL organization focuses on this very message. PAL stand for Pets Add Life. They are getting their message out there via a series of talking animal videos.
The latest one released this past Saturday is called Dog Wants a Kitty.
It’s really very funny. But what I really like about it that it stresses cross-species friendship too.
