How To Keep Your Canine Friend Happy And In Control

Have you watched any of those really great canine television programs where they train canines well? if you do and if you learnt anything from it, you will see that in most of those cases the problem is the owner and their ownership style and not the animal itself. Canines will react according to your actions and their behavior will be derived directly from yours. Therefore, every canine owner needs to be well aware and educated about the ways in which they can keep their friend in control and in good behavior. Here are some of the things that you can do to ensure that you have a genuinely good boy or girl.

Start training at a younger age

One of the best ways for keeping a canine happy and in good control is to start their training at a younger age. The best time for housetraining is ideally between 12 and 16 weeks so you can see how early on they need to be taught their boundaries and what is acceptable and what is not. Every breed has their own tempers and habits and therefore their own training requirements. For example a dachshund will have different requirements to that of a German shepherd and so on. Therefore, if you need professional advice and guidance at first with the training get all the help that you need.

Figure out the right breed for you

The right breed is very important when thinking about getting a canine as a pet. If you are interested in buying that Labrador for sale, you must also know that they are high energy pets who need at least one hour of exercise daily by the time that they are fully grown and that not doing so will cause them to get frustrated and develop bad behavior like incessant barking, digging, chewing things and causing disturbances running through the house all the time. If you do not have the kind of time or the energy to keep exercising your canine daily go for a low energy breed like a bull mastiff or a bulldog who are content to simply cuddle up and become a perfect couch potato. Of course they need exercise too but not so much.

Be fast

Canines learn super fast. That is why you need to make sure that you are rewarding the correct behavior. If for example, you are training them to sit and stay until you order otherwise, you need to only reward them while they are seated and staying seated. If they stand up and you give them a treat for having sat a second before, they will not associate that treat to the good behavior. Be fast and only reward good behavior always.

Electronic Repellents: Do They Work?

The earth is home to not just humans, but also many other species of plants and animals. As such, humans should reasonably expect to co-exist with these other species. Whilst the larger animal varieties do not usually descend upon human settlements, smaller animals and insects tend to be frequent – but often unwanted – visitors. It is this latter group that is commonly defined as ‘pests’, and many businesses have developed countermeasures to deal with pest invasions.

The traditional methods of dealing with pests were either traps or poisons, but thanks to the technological and scientific advancements, a third type of pest control has made its way into the market.Electronic pest control encompasses all pest control applications that are electronically powered in one way or the other. These are generally divided into two main categories, namely, the electromagnetic pest repeller (EM pest repellers) and the ultrasonic pest repellers. These pest repellents are still somewhat new to the market, and there is general confusion on whether they are actually efficient or not.

One of the main reasons fuelling these doubts is the lack of rigorous testing these devices undergo: most countries in the world mandate laboratory and third-party testing for chemical pesticides (and traps generally work as long as you use them correctly), but electronic pest control has yet to be tested under government directives.Before diving into the question of whether these devices are truly effective or not, it is important to gain an understanding of the two categories. The EM pest repellents basically make use of the existent electrical wiring in a home in order to create electromagnetic waves that can affect the nervous system of pests and thereby make them uncomfortable (e.g. there are many snake deterrents that make use of vibrations).

On the other hand, the ultrasonic pest control devices make use of high-frequency noises (which are beyond the usual human hearing range of frequencies) that can simply irritate the pests.It should be understood that electronic pest control methods have mixed results. There have been no conclusive studies claiming whether this device fully works hundred percent – but there also have not been any studies that show they do not work at all. It is best to stick to middle ground – these devices are definitely capable of reducing your troubles with pests, but they would not be a recommended choice if you are suffering from an infestation (in which case you should definitely consult a professional!). However, if your home is bothered by the occasional pest, then by all means, using these devices should be worthwhile.
