think about just having a kind of pet. However, the
maintenance of a pet can cause some concern. Knowing
how to choose the correct pet for you may be easy.
You may have had several pets as a child and know
you need a companion for your own home or you may
have always wanted a pet but been told you could not
have one. Whatever the case you may need to take
into consideration some key points to pet care when
deciding what pet is right for you.
all animals, the decision to keep one as a pet,
should only be done after due consideration is given
to the thought process. Taking the time to gather a
lot of knowledge on the subject and the availability
of the supporting tools that would be needed for the
comfort of the animal chosen should be the priority.
First some pets demand more care than others. For
example, dogs are very needy animals. They are very
sensitive towards their owners. I am sure most of
you have heard of dogs tearing up a house when left
along all day. Dogs can get bored even when they
have other dog companions and toys. They need the
human interaction. Most dog owners take their dogs
out for a walk before work and after work for the
exercise and play time. Other owners who work
outside will often let their dogs come to work with
them to keep them out of trouble.
Cats, on the other hand can amuse themselves and if
you put your valuables on a shelf, they cannot reach
and keep a clean house. They will sleep, look out of
windows, and play with toys while you are away.
another type of pet that is typically low on
maintenance except for cleaning the fish tank.
some small mammals that would make ideal pet choices
would include hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, rats,
mice, rabbits and chinchillas.
Pet care is very important when you own a pet. They
need attention from their owners, positive
reinforcement, training, and love. Fish are usually
excluded from this statement, as they just need
food, proper tank maintenance, and a few plants to
sustain life, however the point is proper pet care
is required when you own any pet. The decision will
be yours to make in choosing what the right pet is
need high maintenance and require the most training
they are also one of the best pets to own. They can
alert you to danger, alert you to someone at the
door, and give unconditional love back. A dog only
asks in return for proper care and a great deal of
attention. If you cannot be home all the time, you
will want to make sure the dog has a roof over their
heads in case of inclement weather, and a huge yard
to play in. Some dogs can jump fences so it may be
best to have a dog run in the yard so they can move
about, but not escape.
the other hand can be high or low maintenance
depending on breed as well as personality. Some cats
require hours of people attention while others shirk
attention. Some cats belong to a one pet household.
They do not like to share their owner’s affections
and will become upset if not mean towards the
infiltrator. Others need the playmate’s attention to
live happily. It will be hard to determine just
which type of cat you own when you first buy them as
kittens as their personalities are just developing.
Pet care is the most important factor when you are
deciding which pet is right for you and your home.
You will want to consider all the pet care needs of
the animals you are looking at as well as the breed
you are looking at to determine if they will have a
happy place in your home
