Dogs And Cats Living Together, It’s So
When someone says the phrase “like dogs and cats living together” they usually mean that they are having issues
with their living arrangements.
Your pets can have a great life living together; yes that’s right your cat and your dog can be the best of
friends in fact they can be the play partner that other needs and that can all happen in the best of harmony.
There are some ways to start the relationship that will ensure that they can get along and here are some
dog training tips for you to follow to ensure that happens.
The Cat Is A Good Thing
You should start by associating the cat to a good feeling for your dog. For example when your dog is calm around
the cat praise him. Do not rush anything either, if you ever heard the song “you can’t hurry love” this is the
perfect time to understand that.
If you try to hurry the love you are bound to get scratched with some not-so-friendly cat claws and to get
frustrated by your dog’s persistence at getting the kitty. Instead when the cat comes into the room, make it sound
like a good thing to your dog.
You can perhaps even give him a treat for being nice and calm. The most important thing is that the dog feels
great about having the cat around. As for your cat, once it feels like the dog does not represent a threat it will
start getting closer.
If Your Cat Is Not Getting Close
If your cat is not getting close after a few days then it is time to get it close. Do not bring the cat into the
room where the dog is if your cat does not want to come in. Instead get your car to a room where it can be relaxed
without the dog in it. Then pet your cat and let it relax for a few minutes.
When you feel your cat is relaxed enough have someone else in the family bring the dog into the room. If the dog
has had a long walk then, that will help too because a tired dog is less likely to get excited.
Then slowly bring the dog into the room, if the cat starts getting nervous tell the person that is bringing the
dog to slow down. Do this until they are close to each other and that will be the beginning of a beautiful
relationship. The key here is patience.
Puppy and Kitten
Dogs and cats living together can be a beautiful relationship from the beginning if they are introduced to each
other as a puppy and a kitten. They both just lost their litter mates and the other can become the new playmate.
They both need that stimulation and that can create a bond between them. Granted kitties can be a bit wilder than
puppies so you may want to always keep an eye on them as they play at a young age. You are giving them a chance to
prove the saying wrong.
