Dog trainer

Dog trainer | Pet Adoption | Scoop.it
Your first instinct may be to train the dog yourself. However, sometimes it is not the dog that is the problem, but the owner. It is much more difficult to find fault in yourself than it is in your dog.
Info4Pets's insight:

Do you need a dog trainer but you are not sure where to find one or whom to trust? This article will give you suggestions as to how to handle both problems.

 

When you first acquire a dog, you are looking forward to the calm, organized walks you will be taking with them. You are also looking forward to taking your pet to the dog park to interact with the other dogs. Unfortunately, in some cases, these positive interactions don’t happen. Instead, when you take your pet to the dog park you end up being the one interacting with the other dogs while trying to break up fights that your dog initiated. Don’t despair – all you need is a good dog trainer.

 

Your first instinct may be to train the dog yourself. However, sometimes it is not the dog that is the problem, but the owner. It is much more difficult to find fault in yourself than it is in your dog. For instance, if you are a nervous individual, your dog can feel that and they will begin to feel nervous and anxious. When you combine that nervousness with the interaction with other dogs, it can become an unpleasant meeting. As you become more nervous about your pet’s behavior they too become more nervous and agitated, as well.

 

If you are able to fix certain habits in yourself right away, you may see a change in your pet’s behavior. However, most people are incapable of doing so without first having a third party point out the behavior that needs to be modified. Therefore, it is better to involve a third, impartial and professional party – the dog trainer.

 

OK, so you decide you need a dog trainer. How do you find one?

 

There are several ways of finding a good, reliable dog trainer in your area. Most people ask their friends first, which is a great way of finding someone you can trust. If you are referred to a dog trainer by a friend, make sure that you check on their background and experience, regardless of the referral source. Some dog trainers specialize in certain breeds and may not be as helpful for your situation. In this case, it is important to remember that different breeds have different characteristics that must be approached uniquely.

 

Just like with anything else, it is important to shop around for a dog trainer. A great online resource is www.info4pets.com It is a website hosting all sorts of useful information for pet owners nationwide – from dog breeders, adoption shelters, groomers, and of course, dog trainers. This site is especially important because you will be able to view fellow pet owners’ reviews and comments.

Things that make pet hotels so beneficial for your loved animals

Things that make pet hotels so beneficial for your loved animals | Pet Adoption | Scoop.it
Info4Pets's insight:

Whether you are away for work or pleasure, you may not always be able to take your pet with you. In these instances, you need to find someone to care for your pet. If a trip is planned at the last-minute, it may be difficult to find a friend or a family member to sit with your pet. Additionally, it can get quite boring for your pet if they don’t have daily interaction with other pets. This is one of the main reasons why pet owners choose to put their dogs or cats into pet hotels.

Before a pet owner can place their pet into a pet hotel, there are several things they must do. First, the pet hotel will verify vaccines such as Rabies, DHHP, and Bordetella with the pet’s veterinarian. Some establishments may require further vaccination. Also, a flea-check will be performed once the pet comes in and if fleas are found, the dog or cat will be required to have a flea bath. Most pet hotels will also ask for proof of the yearly fecal check and that the pet has not been around transmittable diseases in the past month. While these procedures are enforced by most establishments, pet owners are advised to check with their pet hotel of choice for any additional requirements.

Once the pet is deemed healthy, they are usually invited for a temperament test where their ability to interact with other dogs or cats and the pet hotel staff is observed. It is important for a pet to be comfortable with their atmosphere so that they can have fun and be safe during their owner’s absence. While many dogs and cats adjust well to their new, temporary surroundings, pet owners are highly advised not to force their pets to stay at pet hotels if their temperament test does not go well. Many hotels will prohibit the pets from staying there if they cannot get along with the staff and the other “guests” during the test.

So where can a pet owner find a reliable pet hotel? There are several resources available for locating reliable pet hotels in one’s area. We suggest utilizing info4pets.com, which is a free tool for pet owners to find local pet hotels, supplies, vets, etc. What separates info4pets.com  from most other services is the ability for the pet owner to submit their own posts and to read reviews and suggestions from other pet owners.

Understanding how adoption shelters operate

Info4Pets's insight:

As per one of the surveys conducted by The Humane Society, around 4 million cats and dogs are abandoned by their owners every year. There is more than one reason as to why people leave their pets. Sometimes people start running out of time to take care of their pets, while others may develop certain types of allergies.

 

There may be times when owner passes away, or may move into a new house. Parents expecting a baby also sometimes feel that leaving the pet is the best option to devote time to the newborn.

 

Sometimes a person may feel that their pet has overgrown and they want a cute and cuddly animal, which could also be a reason why they leave them. But, each pet deserves a chance to live a good life and hence we have adoption shelters.

 

People often have a belief that it is difficult to tame animals found in such adoption shelters   . However, that is only a myth. As a matter of fact, dogs that you would find in such centers are already familiar with the household surroundings, since they have undergone trainings and know basic commands. So it is much easier to get such pets used to your household surroundings.

 

The process of adopting the pet of your choice from one such shelter home is quite simple and easy. You may get the process done in a very less time. Depending on which agency you have contacted for the adoption, you may have to go through a little examination. The staff of these agencies may check you to find out your suitability for the process, to know whether you can take care of dog or not.

 

This may be done by making a visit to your home and your background to see if you can provide a comfortable living space for that pet. Your landlords may also be called up to see if they are ready to welcome the pet or not.

 

Upon completing all the formalities, you are required to pay a certain fee, which is quite affordable. Before bringing the dog home, don’t forget to get neutering surgery done!

 

In order to have a successful adoption remember to treat your new pet as you would treat a family member. To find a reliable adoption shelter near you, visit www.info4pets.com
