Why Training is Crucial for Your Pet’s Wellness
Have you thought about how your pet's training can affect his health?
When training hours in the gym and school can benefit our health and wellbeing, if our pet's discipline training can benefit their health, is a question to ponder on.
For pet people and owners, love is unconditional.
I'm sure most of us love our pets irrespective of how disciplined they might be. For this reason, we may get annoyed if our puppy pees on an expensive carpet, but shrug it off because he’s too adorable!
But, what if we come to understand that pet's training can have significant health implication, mostly positive?
Wouldn't we want to take that step towards our pet's wellness?
So here's the guide you need!
This blog post will clear the air about your furry friend’s training and its relationship with their health.
What Kind Of Training Is the Best?
There are several ways to train your pet.
These are broadly classified under:
● Positive reinforcement
● Negative reinforcement
All these techniques are successful in disciplining your pet and teaching them ideal ways to live their lives.
However, positive reinforcement is one of the most pet-friendly techniques that not only teach your furry friend a lot but also keeps them happy and fosters healthy pet-owner relationships.
On the other hand, negative reinforcement includes punishments and isolating your pet comes on the harsher side of punishments.
Your attention is, after all, what they crave the most!
Why Dog-Friendly Training is Also Health Friendly
Dog-friendly training refers to a reward based training where for every 'good' or desired thing that your pet does, you reward them for it.
The reward is mainly in the form of their favorite treats or some awesome cuddles.
Training also inculcates schedules into your furry friend’s daily habits.
A good sleeping and eating schedule means that your pet is habituated to proper and timely meals as well as good hours of rest. Also, adequate exercise and playtime included in their routine keep your pet active and energetic.
This will not only be good for their physical fitness but also mental well being.
Well rested and well fed-pets are calm.
Training also means that your furry friend will get accustomed to hygiene and understand the right places to poop or pee.
This is one of the most important health benefits for you and your pets!
It is not always possible to be there to clean your pets' waste. By the time you get it cleaned, your pet may already have been exposed to germs and other dangerous bacteria.
Teaching your pet good manners has more benefits than you think.
Sure, you can post cute videos on the internet, you can also feel proud among relatives, but most importantly, you can drive away a lot of anxiety from your pet's life.
Not knowing what to do, what is expected of them, or how they should behave in unfamiliar settings can cause stress and anxiety in a pet. A well-trained pet will know that their owner would be happy with certain behaviors and will stick to that behavior.
This will not only make you happy but will give him peace of mind.
Healthy and Happy
Whether you take professional help for its training or you do it yourself gradually, the ultimate aim is for your pet to be healthy, happy, and the adorable little thing it is!
At the end, who doesn't want a clean, obedient and trained pet?
