Pet Tip

You JUST got a new dog – Don’t freak out – Pet tip 255

Today’s domestic dog is still closely related to the wolf. Like all wolves living in a pack, dogs must be part of a stable family and feel safe. Most domestic behavioral problems occur when the dog is confused about how to act/behave in different situations such as your home or out on a walk.

It is recommended that you keep Fido confined no matter his age for at least the first month in your home. This will allow him to settle in more comfortably and adapt to your lifestyle. At the same time, confinement will reduce such misbehaviors as chewing and separation anxiety.

Here are a few general rules to help you to prevent misbehaviors when you bring Fido home:

My parents adopted Gypsy from the Ottawa Humane Society in January 1979 (when my mother was pregnant with me!) when she was about 2-3-months old. When I was a toddler, I would not leave Gypsy alone! I used to chase her and pull her tail. I don't think she forgave me until I was maybe 10-13-years old. She was very affectionate (especially with my mom), but was a bit of a loner and she definitly had her bad moods! She was an indoor/outdoor cat her whole life but never went too far from home, especially in her older years. Unfortunately, after the "Ice Storm" in January 1998, she acted differently and seemed to be in a bit of pain. Before we could take her to the vet (who she hated with a passion!), she died peacefully (she almost seemed to just "fall asleep") on the floor of the family room one evening while everyone was watching TV. She wa the first cat to be buried in my parents' garden, the "unofficial pet cemetery". Gypsy we love you!
