There can be a lot of reasons why a dog’s get-up-and-go has gotten up and went. And “laziness” is probably not one of them. Here’s how I explained it to a reader.
Q: My dog doesn’t enjoy going for walks. What can I do to get him up and at ‘em?
February is “Responsible Pet Owner” month, and that got us thinking: how do we view responsible pet ownership? While there isn’t an exact definition for it the America Kennel Club gives each of us a great starting point for how we view pet ownership: “Owning a dog is not just a privilege-it's a responsibility.” Whether you own a dog or a cat one thing is for sure, owning that pet comes with great responsibility.
Like people, dogs require exercise. While it’s easy to fall back on the traditional walk around the block, responsible dog ownership requires dog owners to discover the kind of exercise their dog loves. While some dogs live for their daily walk, others may prefer a faster pace, in which case a run or strenuous hike with elevation changes might be more appropriate. For other dogs, play is key. A rigorous game of fetch or tug-of-war might prove the best exercise for a playful dog who craves attention and stimulation, along with physical activity. Some dogs even like to swim or run agility courses.
It’s something all cat parents have asked ourselves at least once: Do our cats really like us, or just put up with us for convenience? Here’s what I told a reader who is a first time cat mom.
Q: I have a cat for the first time, and I’m not sure if she likes me or just the bowls of food I set down. How do people know if their cat really likes them?
I’d just taken my senior Poodle, Peach, outside to potty. Instead of doing her business, she stood blinking at me, shivering a bit in the cold despite her little sweater. I kept the sliding door open in case she changed her mind, and sat down to eat lunch.
