Cat House Training Tricks

A kitten can be a wonderful addition to the right household, bringing with him an exuberant playfulness that resembles that of a young child. Depending on the situation, however, even the sweetest kitten can have some trouble with cat house training. Though most cats are extremely easy to house-train, there can be some real problems that leave you scratching your head, holding your nose and reaching for the household cleansers! While there are many reasons why a kitten or cat has trouble with house-training, there are some tips that can help with any problems.

Cats are creatures of habit, and their behavior can deteriorate badly if things that they relied upon have changed. Stress can play a part in house-training accidents, especially if the change is as significant as having been moved to a new home. There are several things you can do to mitigate this disruption. If at all possible, make sure that the move is the most stressful thing your cat has to deal with. Whether you have adopted a cat or kitten, it will be worthwhile to find out what sort of litter box set-up they were using before, if any. Keep their litter the same. In the case of a kitten, make sure that the litter-box is one with sides that are low enough that they can get in and out of it easily. For some kittens, house-training can be as easy as placing them in the litter-box a few times and making them aware of the texture of the litter.

To reinforce good litter-box behavior in a kitten, keep an eye on it, noting when it stops playing and start scratching at the floor or nosing around. When it does this, place it in the litter-box. When the kitten has behaved well, reward it with plenty of attention and praise.

There are a number of reasons why a kitten might balk at using its litter box. First look for any sources of change. Has the box been moved, or has the litter changed? If so, you may wish to change back, if at all possible. Another reason may be that the litter has not been changed recently enough. Cats can be quite sensitive to this condition and may reject the box until it has been thoroughly cleaned.

In the case of house-training problems, it may also be worth examining other members of the household, human or feline. Cats can bully each other sometimes, and the stress can result in all sorts of undesirable behavior. Similarly, if you have added someone new to the household, your cat can become annoyed or jealous. When steps have been taken to introduce and reconcile parties involved, it may also take care of the house training problems.

Keep in mind that using a litter box tends to come very naturally to cats, and if your cat has prolonged issues, it may be time to see a veterinarian. For the most part, however, if you keep these cat house training tips in mind, your kitten’s arrival to your home will be sweet and trouble-free!

Selecting a Dog House

They say dog is “man’s best friend”. Since time immemorial dogs and humans have shared a special bond with each other. Be it in helping a shepherd control his herd, accompanying hunters on their hunting trips, being a guide dog for a physically challenged person or even pulling a sledge over snow covered areas, a dog has helped human beings and has been the epitome of faithfulness and friendship. Dogs have always been there to guard, protect and help. Dogs have been kept as pets since before the dawn of civilization and today pet dogs can be seen everywhere.

On their part, human beings have taken care of this wonderful creature and rewarded them for their loyalty. Dog lovers can be seen all around and in most families that keep dogs, the animals become an essential part of the family. People take every care in ensuring the comfort and safety of their pet dogs. Apart from buying the best dog food and ensuring medicine and exercise for them, dog owners are now increasingly buying exclusive dog houses. However, the concept of dog houses or kennels is not really new and archaeological evidence has shown that Egyptians around 4500 BC used to keep their dogs in dog kennels made of mud and bricks. What is new is that these days people are not simply settling for concrete or even wooden kennels. They are going for more innovative kennels.

You can buy a dog house made of all kinds of material. They are being available in different shapes, sizes and types. Today, a lot of factors are taken into consideration before buying or building a dog house. Often, the house has insulated walls and roofs to provide the pet comfort and protection against the extremes of temperature. The roofs are even removable, which facilitates regular cleaning. A few houses can also be dismantled and taken along to be re-constructed at a different site. This is useful when you are going backpacking or travelling and don’t want to leave your dog behind.

When choosing the right dog house, you should take into account the size of your dog. Little pooches and similar smaller breeds normally live under the same roof as the owner and are most comfortable indoors. They can be bought hollow egg-like pods to nestle in comfortably. However, bigger dogs would require an outdoor kennel with adequate insulation. You should also consider your dog’s habits and likes and dislikes before opting for the best possible house. For example, many dogs have a strange liking of climbing on to the roof of the kennel and sitting there. In such a case take care to build the dog kennel in a way that the dog doesn’t get hurt.
