If you have a cat for almost any period, sooner or
later you will find out kitty should ride with your vehicle–your car, truck,
van or some other moving device–for some reason. Trips towards the vet, why
not a jaunt to Grandma’s house, or simply as you want to ride in a vehicle and
you also don’t want kitty left home alone.
The question then is how to safely mobilize kitty.
Here are somewhat to rule out then one to test:
1. Don’t fence her in
One with the often-preferred approaches to transport a
kitty is usually to have her sleeping on your lap or for the seat beside you.
But, that option is not realistic and could pose disastrous difficulties for
you; particularly, should you and she are in the vehicle alone.
2. Your Lap
The lap just isn’t an option either, really; what in
the event you have to brake suddenly? Kitty might go a little airborne at the
sudden stop and land unladylike on the floorboard. And boy will you get
yourself a look!
3. Hand-held, or inside your
If you weren’t doing the driving, perhaps you could
hold kitty with her head over your arm and seeking the window, just like dogs
do. That stance, though, would also ensure it is hard to drive in a very safe
4. Under the seat
If other options aren’t effective, kitty could always
crawl underneath the seat. Many years ago, I drove from Iowa to Arizona with
Muffy, my cat at the time. Sadly, she spent most of the trip underneath the
driver’s seat; she had to get been scared to death. Unfortunately, on the time,
it didn’t get lucky and me to get a carrier for her and her inside.

Traveling is fun and relaxing especially
when you are with your favorite pet. If you are traveling by airplane, choosing
a pet airline that is approved by the airline will be the first thing you need
to consider. The airline has a strict policy on animal travel. You must ensure
that you get a carrier that is approved by airline regulations and policies. In
this way, you will save time, money, and effort. In addition to considering
certain aspects of traveling with pets, you must also make sure to choose the
appropriate pet carrier that will make your cat comfortable.
Here are some guidelines for choosing the right one for your pet:
1. Before you buy a carrier for your pet,
consider measuring your pet’s size. This way you will have a guide and an idea
of the size and type of operator you will buy.
2. If you have time, ask the airline about
the rules and conditions for flying with your pet. This will give you an idea of
where your pet will be placed, whether in the cabin or in the cargo hold. This
will also give you knowledge about their rules when flying with your pet.
Calling the airline early will make things easier for you and avoid regrets for
doing the wrong thing afterward.

airline will require that your pet can stand and move in the carrier. Placing
your pet in a small carrier will make them feel uncomfortable.

and have a lot of ventilation. It also must have zippers and secure fasteners,
absorbent pads and durable soft shoulder straps. This will avoid any
inconvenience to your pet and other people or other pet cargo. This will also

The dog collar and the dog leash are the most important tools to train
your dog in how to fit into human society. As you know not all humans are dog
lovers. So it is our responsibility, as owners, to teach our dogs how to
respect the human boundaries. This in turn will also teach our human friends to
respect the canine as part of everyday life. This also keeps our dogs safe and
secure in their surroundings as we share our everyday life, play time and
travel time with them. Here are a few guidelines for training your dog to wear
a collar and leash.
When your puppy is about 4 to 6 weeks old, he or she should be old
enough to wear their first collar, make sure it is light weight.
At this time show the leash to
him, leave it around where he can sniff and investigate it, this will let him
familiarize himself with it. Attach the leash to the collar several times
during this adjustment period, this will get him adjusted to the sounds it
makes attaching to the dog collar, but never leave it attached during this time.
Around 10 weeks your puppy should
be old enough to try attaching the dog leash for the very first walk, but never
force the issue. You can try later if your puppy looks or acts scared or
apprehensive. Attach the leash several times it needed to make your puppy
comfortable with what you are doing. Praise and talk to your puppy as you
attach the dog leash, try calling to him and use the natural instinct of your
dog to come to you and start walking, coaching him along the way. As always
patience is the key to success. You should give your puppy time … Read more
Most of the people who decide to adopt puppies struggle with
a tricky question, what is the right breed for me. The next question which
haunts them is the age of a puppy. We need our pet to get familiar as early as
possible and younger puppies get familiar in short time than a grown up dog.
Apart from these two questions, there is another concern. Where to put puppy in
the home? Let’s answer the question one by one.
Take the first question, which is the perfect puppy for you.
First classify puppies into two groups. We have large and small puppies. Now
look at the space available at your home. Large dogs would require more space
than the small ones. Next factor is the breed. For this you can go through pet
magazines and get a fair knowledge about each breed. Generally it is our
friends who inspire us to own a puppy. Neighbors walking with their pets and
friends telling funny stories about their pets prompt us buy one for our
family. Probably we would buy the breed which looks more familiar.
When choosing the puppy, make sure that it is more than or
at least seven weeks old. Important things happen during seven weeks time.
Puppies need to interact with their mothers or littermates during this period.
They receive vital antibodies from their mothers to remain healthy and strong.
Add to that, many lessons are learnt which puppies may required later when they
will interact with their own siblings. Adopt puppies which have crossed the
seven weeks mark.
Puppy is not a commodity, good or material which could be
stored anywhere. It is a living thing that responds and reacts. It needs proper
feeding, care and love. Search for the retailer who cares for puppies and … Read more
