persian2persianAccording to the Cat Fanciers Association, the Persian is the most popular pedigreed cat breed in the United States. It could be it’s long, beautiful coat that makes everyone love it or maybe it the Persian’s playful personality. Toys that he case chase will keep hi occupied. They also love cat toys containing cat nip. It’s also quite and easy going and most Persians readily adapt to new households and accept other pets. This makes the breed relatively easy to care for. ¬†Persians do require extra grooming. Their large eyes are prone to tearing and infection so a Persians eyes and face should be kept clean. The breeds long fur can also become matted so they should be brushed daily. Persians are a pleasure to own and all the extra care is worth it!

Litter Box Training For Small Dogs

doglitterYou’re not feeling well or it’s snowing, raining or extremely hot or cold outside and you really don’t feel like pulling your dog leash on and taking him out for a walk. It is actually possible to train a small dog to use a litter box? ¬†You can train a rabbit to use a litter box. The advantages of this is that it could eliminate bathroom accidents. It’s great for people living in apartments. Your dog would be able to go at any time during the day. It also reduces the number of trips outside. This really helps in bad weather when lots of dogs don’t like going outside. Small dogs have small bladders and having a litter box will make it easier to have them go more frequently.

First of all, you’ll need a litter box especially made for dogs. There are some companies like Purina who make them. They’re also available through most pet retailers. You can use a large cat litter box. Put the box on a surface that’s easy to clean like a tiled floor.

To train your dog, you can shift your puppy from using newspaper to the litter box. Instead of taking your dog from the crate to the yard, take him from the crate to the litter box. Aways reward him with a dog treat when appropriate. Correct him if he goes somewhere else and praise him when he is successful.

You’ll be glad when he’s watching the rain or the snow through the window in a nice, warm apartment rather than struggling with him in the cold, damp weather.
