Adoption: asking the right questions
Before focusing on entertainment, experts are looking at adoption. What animal will be welcomed? What kind to choose? What about his offspring? There are so many questions to ask yourself before pledging allegiance to the cat or dog that has won our hearts. It is always good to remember that this action should be equivalent to a well considered action.
To provide room and board for a pet, there must be time to spend on it. However, the needs may differ depending on the species. Therefore, the new owner of a cat must teach him to remain emotionally independent. As for the dog, it needs more presence of its person.
Regardless, patience, listening and respect are required. Your mission, if you accept it, is to help the newcomer feel good about himself and to establish a good cooperative relationship with him.
Another very important question was asked during this round table: how long should a cat or dog be left alone? with Marion Ruffie, the longest weekend has become bearable for most of our velvet-legged friends. Of course, as the specialists explained, it all depends on the individual, his habits and his living environment.
If you are away, keep these 2 elements in mind: balance and work. On the side of the canine gent, it is necessary to meet different types of expenses throughout the day, both physical, mental and olfactory. Of course, the age, breed, and general shape of the animal must be considered.
As far as our little mustaches are concerned, the watchword is “enhancing their environment”. Access to height and windows, as well as accessories that allow physical exercise of the cat remain important to ensure its well-being.

For the dog trainer, it is important to know that keeping a 2e The dog under the roof is like managing 3 individuals. Ideally, any adopter should schedule time for 1er doggie, for 2e and for the duet.
Finally, when it’s time to leave, we must take the necessary steps to limit the animal’s stress. Too many kisses and hugs, as well as a tsunami of words of love will not reassure the cat, for example. Remember, our furballs feel all our emotions!
little trick to Chloe Fesch, and at least: get your dog used to it by making a false start. When you pick up your keys, give him some attention. This training will help him to stop having a negative view of these little rituals.
