Teaching Your Dog To Stay

Friday, June 3, 2016

dogstayIf you just adopted a puppy or even a full grown dog, you will really want to teach him to stay. The worst thing is when a new pup jumps on anyone entering your home. Here’s a quick easy process to achieve this goal.

Make sure that you dog follows the “sit” command before moving on to “stay.”

  1. Ask your dog to “sit.”
  2. Open the palm of your hand in front of you and say “stay.”
  3. If he stays, take a few steps back and reward him with a dog treat and some affection.
  4. Gradually increase the number of steps before giving him the dog treat.
  5. Aways reward your dog with a dog treat even if he just stays for a few seconds.

Sometimes it may take awhile before your dog learns to follow this command. Don’t be discouraged. Puppies have high energy and will take a lot longer. Keep at it, he’ll get it!

catwaterfountainMy cat Molly is being treated for hyperthyroidism and Kidney disease. I’m always watching how much water she is drinking. Right now it seems like she’s drinking a lot. This could be a result of her medical conditions. So how much water should your cat consume in one day.? Cat do not naturally drink much water. Drinking a sufficient amount of water is vital to a cats health. It accounts for about two thirds of a cats body weight. Cats have evolved to obtain their water requirements almost entirely on the moisture content in their cat food.So how much should a cat drink? A normal cat’s daily water requirement ranges from 5 to 10 fluid ounces per day (or an average of 60 ml/kg/day). Cats eating canned  cat food will receive much of their daily water needs from its cat food, since canned food is about 70 to 80 percent water.  I keep two water bowls and an automatic water bowl. Cats seem to like flowing water. I would always recommend that you include some wet food in your cats diet since it does contain a significant amount of water and make are that your cats water bowls are filled with fresh water at all times.

Thanks to The Endocrine Clinic for providing the statistical information in this post.
