Training cats might sound counterintuitive to those who have never owned cats before, but actually, they are just as intelligent as dogs and are perfectly capable of learning new behaviours. Even the daftest moggie can learn to use the litter tray so there's no need to worry.
The best part about this particular training is that cats are much like humans in that they like to use a designated toilet area. Just like you wouldn't want to go in the kitchen or living room, cats also don't want to go anywhere near their food, bed or socialising areas. This means that once you have designated an appropriate area, your ambitions will be aligned and training won't be difficult at all.
One of the things that hasn’t changed over the generations—or even centuries—is that “man’s best friend,” the dog, continues to be a popular addition to a home as a pet, or just as a four-legged member of the family. The worldwide popularity of dogs is just as vibrant here in Australia as it is anywhere else on the globe.
Unfortunately, even if the popularity of the dog as a pet hasn’t changed, a lot of things about our lifestyle in the 21st century have. Life, especially in urban centres, is a lot more fast-paced and demanding. On top of that, in heavily populated areas, space, understandably, is at a premium. For people that choose to have goldfish, ro-dents, or even cats as pets, this isn’t as difficult a situation, even when people are working longer hours, spend-ing more time away from home.
But if you have a dog, and you really care about your canine companion, things become a bit more challenging, especially if you have a larger breed. With more people in cities living a condo/apartment lifestyle, then working fulltime on top of that, being able to take proper care of a dog can be a real test. One of the ways that this problem is being addressed is with the rise of the “Doggy Day Care.”
If you’re not sure what this is, or whether it’s right for you and your dog, here’s what a doggy day care can do for you.
