Handy Animal Handling Tips for all Pet Owners

Whether it’s a stubborn Shiba or a playful tabby, pet-handling can be a challenging task. Just like us, our furkids experience a range of emotions, ranging from joy to fear. However, unlike us, they’re not capable of voicing how they feel, making pet-handling trickier. As such, whether you’re a first-time pet owner or an experienced animal-handler, here’re some tips to bear in mind when approaching your pet.

It’s Never Personal Handy Animal Handling Tips for all Pet Owners

When it comes to your pets, remember that their behaviour is rarely personal and is, most of the time, a reaction to their surroundings. If your pet is from a pet shop in Singapore, feel free to pay the store a visit, to consult the staff on the behaviour of your pet. After all, the team would have spent a considerable amount of time with your pet, making them one of the best candidates to seek advice from when it comes to understanding and handling your pet.

With their assistance, you will know how to cope with your new found companion even if you are a first-time pet owner.

Visit The Veterinarian

In addition to paying a visit to the pet store, vets in Singapore also make a great source for advice. With their expertise in animal psychology, veterinarians are better equipped to understand your pet and, at the same time, find out the underlying reason for its behaviour. For instance, abnormal urination patterns exhibited by your feline could be due to medical and not necessarily behavioural issues. If so, the vet will be able to highlight this issue and in turn, provide a suitable. solution.

Limiting Affection Handy Animal Handling Tips for all Pet Owners

While it’s natural to shower your pet with affection, over-pampering them could result in a spoilt pet. Not only would they refuse commands, they may display aggressive behaviour. Giving in to your pet may also be sending them the wrong signal, that you are condoning their behaviour. It may be challenging, but it’s important to let your pet know when its playtime and when it’s not.

Just like how discipline is required for us to control our emotions and behaviour, the same is needed to regulate our pets’ behaviour. Be consistent about the rules in your home and be watchful of environments. Lastly, avoid physical punishments as these may end up counterproductive.
