Comparing Dogs and Cats Under the Similar Roof

Dogs are servants. Their feeling’s toward his/her master is comradely and he enjoys the master’s affection and regard.  A dog will go to any length to delight and offer protection to his people. Dogs can also be taught many tasks and will move about them with enthusiasm. Their purpose is to please.

Cat’s, on the other hand, are different. They serve no one, knowingly or willingly. Their one accomplishment is looking of mice, rats and other rodents which is self-taught. The person does not live who can declare to have trained a cat to accomplish a job for human benefit. There are not any police cats, no watch cats, no sled cats. The cat does not even come rushing to you, unless it fits her.

Canine are based upon humans.  They are searching for human for companionship, play and care.  They enjoy the function of being part of the family and will move to great lengths to keep that position.

Cats also are slightly self-sufficient. You by no means will entertain them. This isn’t to mention that they cannot be entertained or that they themselves don’t seem to be entertaining, it is just that their errands are many and their schedules are full.  Cats choose going it alone, relying upon their very own wit to survive.

Whether you select to share your home with a dog or a cat relies greatly upon your own individual personality.  For those who are seeking to be in charge, you’re going to come to blows with cat each time.  She can’t be controlled.  If companionship and undying loyalty are what you are seeking for, a dog will fill the location willingly.

But what happens if you bring home both, a dog and a cat for companionship.  Will this living arrangement work for you, or them?  Well let’s take a look at a few things to remember.

There are properties and folks for each dog and cat-examine what you are expecting to gain from each of these two different companions and make a choice accordingly.  Your house will be blessed with the presence of either.

Dogs are territorial and will fight not simply a new cat, but other new dogs as well. They tend to mark their territory and can battle any person who invades their space. Cats have the same inclinations and even though they are smaller than a dog, they will scratch and struggle for his or her territory.

You must remember that the first step to take when bringing one home is teaching obedience. This is vital particularly for the dog who is regularly the aggressor in this sort of situation. You must educate your dog to obey when you say “no”.

If you bring home a cat, permit your cat to wander around the house. Cats love to roam around the house and this may make her scent scattered in your house. After doing this, lock your cat in a single room and permit your dog to wander around the house sniffing for the cat’s scent. This will make your dog become familiar with your cats odor and will allow the dog to recognize that the cat (odor) is also part of the household.

Normally, dogs begin to bark any time they see another animals in their territory, hoping to scare them away. They will not really fight at something immediately. Now remember, as quickly as the dog begins to bark, this is where the obedience training part begins to take shape. Say “no” and make him realize that the cat can be a pet.

Once your dog starts to relax while he is within the presence of the cat, then it’s time to allow him to sniff the cat. As soon as your dog stops to bark at your cat, you know that you’ve accomplish a great deal and you are half way there. Your success will be recognized immediately and you will have a couple of happy tenants.

One more thing, the ultimate step to accomplish is to make sure that both pets have the time to coexist. Unfortunately, this final step is often hard to accomplish initially due to the cat’s fault. Cats have the tendency to be aloof and steer transparent of the dog and other people. This is not because they’re scared of the dog or people in the house, but because cat’s enjoy privacy and it’s their nature to be alone.
