In the wild animals instinctively know how to live. Domestic animals cannot use this knowledge because humans have replaced their wild environment.
Pet owners provide food, shelter and health care. In some Milwaukee homes the pets have the run of the property, free choice feeding and they can snooze anywhere. However, when pets are confined to indoors for any length of time they get bored.
A bored pet gets into trouble. Dogs will use furniture as a wild animal tears into its kill. They will mess inside and use table and chair legs for chew bones. Cats climb draperies, use furniture for scratching posts and do not use their littler boxes. These are some of the main reasons Milwaukeeans give up their pets. This destructive situation can be avoided.
Owning a pet is a commitment for at least a decade. It is important to be realistic when deciding to add an animal into the family. If there is no room to fit regular daily pet time into a schedule than a live pet is not for you. Pets need several hours a day of quality attention; i.e.: training, playing and grooming, etc.
Pets need a job. Do not leave food for free choice meals. Make them earn their keep. People get paid for work and so should your pet. Expect them to sit and wait until you give them their feeding bowl.
Find an activity. Once you know your animal’s favorite thing to do use this information to get involved in a sport or program. If your dog loves to retrieve than disc dog might be an activity to consider. Milwaukee dog owners can contact organizations in the area like Bay View Bark to find more information.
To keep your cats from tearing up your apartment make sure to have at least one interesting scratching tower for them to climb, hide and scratch. Get them hunting toys, lights that have a moving beam and toys that move. In Milwaukee Pets Supplies Plus have a nice variety in their feline department.
For the total and fulfilling experience of pet ownership give your pet a job.
