Whether you’re having problems with cats making their way onto your dinner table, dogs digging up your lawn or birds escaping their cages, you’ll need help keeping your pets under control.
Here’s a list of handy tips for looking after your animals so you can avoid all those pet-related worries.
1. Hydro therapy
Tired of the cat jumping onto the table during meals?
Fill a spray bottle with water and whenever the cat hops up, give him a squirt.
Eventually the mere sight of the bottle will send the cat running.
2. Saved by the bell
Here’s an easy way your dog can let you know he needs to follow the call of nature.
Hang some bells from the doorknob and your dog will quickly learn to associate the sound with the door opening.
Soon he’ll be nudging the bells himself to tell you it’s time to go.
Saying, ‘Outside? Want to go outside?’, and jiggling the bells for a few days every time your dog goes out can speed things along.
3. For a rainy day
Use a plastic storage bin to make a doghouse that will withstand a rainy day.
Cut a hole in the bin that’s big enough for your dog to pass through.
Flip the bin over on its lid, stick a dog bed inside it and you’re done. Cats will also appreciate this type of semi-enclosed housing.
