Make a great bond with your furry friends
Establishing a bond with your pet is an important step towards establishing a trusting, compassionate, and respectful relationship. Your relationship is only as strong as your bond. A healthy relationship with your pet not only encourages attentiveness but also emphasizes good manners and a healthy partnership that will last a lifetime.
However, this bonding process takes time. You must put in conscious effort to build a strong, meaningful relationship with your pet. Shubham Bansal (Co-Founder of Dear Pets) shares some tricks that can make a difference.
Tips to make great bond with your furry friends
Spend time with them
Spending quality time with your pet is the best way for them to bond. You can get creative and play games like ball-throw, tug of war or with your pet’s favorite toys. It will strengthen your relationship, relax you, and give you the chance to really enjoy having a pet.
Pay close attention to their body language
Understanding your pet’s behaviour is key to building trust and compassion. This will allow you to learn more about your pet’s behaviour, likes and fears. The trust between you and your pet will grow once they are comfortable with you. This will also reduce the chances of your pet getting frustrated, angry, or punished, which could negatively impact their bond.
Collaboration and communication
Solid communication is key to collaborating with your pets in many ways. You can improve the manner you treat your pets by being consistent in your training communication. It is easy to praise your pet and show appreciation for their behavior. It’s a great way to praise your pet for being polite, not making a mess at home, and for sitting calmly while you fill the bowl. These small gestures will encourage your pet’s trust and help them make better decisions. It can also be a good idea to be polite even when your pet is angry. This will help foster a healthy bond.
These are just a few ways to strengthen your relationship with your pet. For a stronger relationship, you can always adapt to your pet’s needs and find new ways to bond.
