THE UPS AND DOWNS OF DOG OWNERSHIP

Ah owning a pet. If you have one, you know how it’s a love-hate relationship. Hopefully more love than hate! You absolutely adore the pup you call your pal. They’re furry friends that you know will always be loyal to you. One of the sounds you look forward to hearing when you get home is that boisterous bark that shows how excited they are. But, there are times when they can require a bit (more like a lot) of patience.

The pooping and the peeing are just the start of it. All pet owners have unfortunately stepped on these icky substances at least once in their lives. Another is when that boisterous bark gets a little too boisterous at 1 in the morning. The list goes on and on but the love that you get back makes it worth it.

A Walk in the Park

In reality, walking your dog in the park isn’t always a walk in the park. By that, I mean that for more excitable hounds it almost be like a game of tug-of-war. You want to go one direction while the dog wants to go another. What’s worse is if they escape your grip! For times like these, you can trust the Yippr LED Lighted Dog Leashes to keep sight of your dog at all times. Even during the night! If you’re having difficulty getting your dog to stay calm why not do it little by little. Don’t expose them to everything just yet. But give them time to get used to the sights before exploring.

The Home Bathroom

Another difficulty is the bathroom situation. If not properly trained, your dog will look at your home as a bathroom. Every single corner of it. Gross, right? You need to act fast before they get used to it! This requires more vigilance as you’ll need to watch your pup right before it’s about to do the deed. Caught in the act I’d like to say, but don’t just watch. Bring them to the outside or a place where they’re supposed to do this. They’ll eventually get used to the behavior of pooping and peeing in the right place.

Having a pet is like having a child. It can be incredibly difficult but will give you immense joy. Just make sure to train and care for it so you avoid the many hassles of pet ownership. There’s a reason why the call the dog a man’s best friend after all.
