Tips for being a great pet owner! [samo na englleskom]

Our pets are amazing additions to our lives and they enrich us in so many important ways! Pet caring hobby provides a rich experience to learn so many things and values in ones life. The benefits you got through pet keeping are countless and the following points give us a brief idea of what we derive out of this great hobby.
-Pet caring will help you to learn about the attitude of responsibility.
-It helps you to learn how to take care about others.

-It will help you to learn an attitude of patience.
-Pet caring will help you to learn about the various aspects of animals like theirnature, diet habits, their behavioral aspects etc.,
So how can we repay our pets given that they give us so much? Surely there is more that we can do than just feed them.-Using metal water dishes outside in winter may be a risk, because your pet's tongue could stick to the frozen metal. In the summer medal bowls can get very hot, and burn your dog. Water should be changed at least twice daily in the supplying container.
-Scheduled mealtimes are usually regarded as better for your puppy than free feeding where the dogfood bowl is always filled with food. The advantages of scheduled feeding include the fact that pets that eat at scheduled times tend to be less obese than free-fed pets. Your puppy should also see that YOU, the pet owner, are the food giver. This will help your puppy see you as the leader of the house or the ‘alpha dog’ which can help with behaviour problems.
-Do not make your dog walk on extremely hot or cold asphalt, cement, etc... the pads of their pawsare not made out of steel! If it is too hot for you to walk barefoot, then chances are that it is too hot for your dog, also.
-Rub him behind his ears. If he is into this, he will lean his head into your hand and pretty much guide you to where he wants to be patted and scratched.
-Not all pets are good choices for all people. Some pets need more space, more exercise, more interaction, have more health problems, have exotic diets etc. Buy a book or do some research online BEFORE you get a pet so that you know what to expect.
-Most pets need human attention. When we take them home, we become their surrogate families and they depend on us for attention and interaction.
-Adventure! Mostly for dogs, this means getting your dog used to the outside world and different people, objects, riding in cars, meeting other dogs etc. This is best done at a young age so that your pet is less fearful of new experiences!
