Tips For Animal Communication

1. Start With You Own Pet

If you have a pet parrot, for instance, you should start with your pet. This is because you already have a connection with your pet, which will make it easier for you to connect with another animal. Keep an eye on how your pet behaves when he is angry, sad or hungry. This will give you a very good idea of their behaviors. If you have just bought a pet, you should start by saying good morning to him in the morning when you meet him for the first time.

2. Wait For Their Response

Second, whenever you say something to your pet, wait for them to respond. Don’t just keep on talking. This is just like you talk to a human friend and give them some time to reply. You should give the same opportunity to your animal as well. After all, they do need time to understand you and then give you a reply. Usually, they will reply you in their own way. It could be a gesture, a whistle or a random word. At times, you may receive an image. After all, we all have different ways of sending, receiving and interpreting the information others give us.

3. Give Proper Responses

While chatting with someone on your phone, you will respond to their messages appropriately. You may give them a reply and start chatting with them or you may tell them that you are busy right now. In the same way, you should “reply” to your new pet as well. Say whatever you want and they will understand it. If you don’t respond to your friend, they will stop paying attention to you. In the same way, your pet won’t pay attention to you if you stop responding to them. The worst animal communication mistake is to ignore your pet. Do you feel like your pet has already given up? If so, you can reach out to them to restore the connection once again. You have to make the phone call.

 

Take Care of Pets

 

Here are some key ways in which you can make sure you are being a responsible pet owner and carer!

Space: Pets need to have a place that is safe, dry, clean and cozy. While deliberating on the choice of our pets we must carefully consider the space it will require for the aquarium for our fish, corner for our cat or dog or cage for the lovebirds we so wish to have! If an entire room is too much to think of, a clear and demarcated boundary can be created for your furry friend.

Diet: According to the pet that you own, you must strive to ensure they are fed a balanced and nutritious diet. Every species and breed in turn has foods that are permissible and those that can cause greater harm than good. Make sure you check with the vet and only feed your pet the right kind of foods and appropriate portions. Just as food needs to be carefully monitored, so too you must ensure that your pet has adequate and clean drinking water available.

Exercise: All pets need their space to be able to flex their muscles and spread their wings. Pets like dogs need to be taken for a scheduled walk regularly. Pet birds must have enough room in their cages not to feel cramped. A daily exercise routine will ensure your pets are healthy and happy

Medical Attention: Regular checkups with the veterinarian will make sure that your pet is hale and healthy and will help to diagnose any ailments well in advance. Vaccinations must be given in a timely and disciplined manner.

Cleanliness: All pets have cleanliness and hygiene needs. Pets like dogs and cats must be bathed regularly and groomed to keep their fur, hair, nails and skin well cared for. The area your pets are housed in must be cleaned and washed daily to keep the surroundings clean and pest free. Make sure also to keep your pet free of parasites like fleas, ticks and worms. Fish bowls or aquarium water needs to be changed appropriately in a timely fashion.

Supervision: While most pets once trained and habitual to their environment tend to stay safe it is important for a new pet to be supervised till they get a lay of the land! Inadvertently leaving the cage open could let the parrot or parakeet escape, dashing out of an ajar door could let the puppy or kitten to make a wild dash out onto the street which could be potentially dangerous.

Remove Pet Hairs

Pets drop their hairs constantly and they shed out everywhere in the house. These small hairs can be very annoying when they go deep into clothing, couches, carpet and furniture. It is not just unpleasant in appearance, pet hairs are actually one of the sources of various kind of respiratory allergies. They have awful impact to the respiratory system especially for young kids.

Here are some easy methods to remove the hairs of your pets on furniture and clothing.

  • Vacuum Cleaner

This is the most effective and handy technique. A suitable vacuum cleaner can cover and clean up a large piece of area. Using vacuum cleaner is in particular good for carpet, blinds and large couch. Many vacuum companies have come out with attachments to help suck up pet hairs from difficult areas such as carpet. You may use two special attachments to deal with larger flat surface e.g. carpet and then a sucking tube on gaps and hanging pieces such as curtain.

  • Rollers or Tape

This is probably the cheapest, simplest and yet effective method. It works exceptionally well for removing pet hairs from clothing where there is an uneven surface. Simply move the roller back and forth over the problem areas until all hairs have been picked up. Remember to peel off the piece when it is fully covered with hair. Then a fresh sticky piece will appear to work again. Similar technique applies when you use packaging tape, duck tape or scotch tape. Wrap you hand with the non-sticky side toward your hand and the adhesive side face out. Brush your hand over the desired area and pick up the hairs thoroughly. However rollers and tape method may not work so well for larger piece of furniture like sofa and carpet. It can be a tiring job if you do so.
