If you’re looking for introducing cat to dog tips: best puppy advice, then this video is going to run you through some helpful hints on how to go about it. There are several things to keep in mind when bringing a cat into your home where there’s a dog, and one of the first things is to try to look for an opportunity to introduce the cat to your dog prior to bringing him/her home. If there’s an adverse reaction from the get-go, chances are you may have a challenge on your hands.
Dog experts recommend taking it slowly, and probably the best thing to remember if your dog has not had much contact with cats, it’s going to be his natural reaction to respond in a way that may alarm you, but bear in mind that your dog will do what comes natural, and that may be to bark, bristle or show some form of aggression.
As with all dog training tips, it takes patience, persistence, and leadership to help your pets adjust to any sort of change.
Introducing Cat to Dog Tips: Best Puppy Advice (Video)
My experience has been varied depending on the breed of dog, and the temperament of the different dogs I’ve had over the years. For example, I trained my Lab using the command “no chase”, and the dog understood this very well. However, once in a while, especially if he was alone in the yard with the cat, and without supervision, he would give a little chase. That said, he did know it was wrong, and he’d always look over his shoulder, and would put his head down if he heard me call out “no chase” from inside the house. This Introducing cat to dog tips: best puppy advice video has some great ideas on how to set things up for success, and how to avoid failure from the very beginning.
