The Most Common Dog

The Benefits of Dog Toys

Most dogs need chew toys, especially when they’re puppies and many dogs need toys to play with, especially when they’re alone.  The distraction and entertainment offered by toys will benefit both pets and their owners.

Why do dogs bark?
How to Restrain it


Some dogs are more protective than others, so when their territory is ‘threatened’, it can be met with barking. Looking alert or even aggressive is not uncommon. It’s also not surprising that dogs bark, yelp or howl when they’re scared or startled.

Dogs that Jump and
How to Stop them


A dog that jumps on its owner or on his owner’s guests doesn’t know his place in the house. He thinks he’s the pack leader and wants to make sure you and your guests understand that. This can be quite frustrating, but it’s a common behavioural problem that can be avoided.

Cat Behaviours

Bites and Scratches
Cats


Most cats are relaxed, peaceful and tend to avoid  confrontation. Still, there are times (as most cat owners know) when kitty can throw a crazy claw or nibble just a little bit too hard. A bite or scratch can be painful and also get infected.
