Everyone needs to know how to be nice to their own pets! Here are a few tips to being nice to your pets and other animals.
Groom your dog or cat a lot. Cats and dogs love to be groomed. And scratched. But if they do not like it, don't do it; that will just make them hate you.
Be sure you don't have anything on your fingers that will bother your pet while petting it.
- Your tone of voice has a lot to do with how your pet will react. Saying "I love you, you're the best pet in the world!" in a tone that implies you hate it won't exactly convey your message.
- If your pet doesn't like what you are doing to it, then stop right away! However, there are exceptions; if you're doing it for its own good, like giving it a bath, continue doing it, but soothe them as much as you can.
- Don't get your pet angry.
