It's that time of year when things might be winding down some and ideas run short on keeping your pet entertained. If that's the case, the next few months will be a stretch for ya...the snow is coming and outside of looking out the picture window and barking or meowing at birds and squirrels, pets might be on the south side of boredom quick.
That's where having an expert like Jodi Jarvis-Therrian on hand is beneficial! She's got the ideas, and practices them regularly, to help keep your pet engaged, interested and on point. Even up to the way you talk to your pet is a factor in maintaining their interest and attention level as it stimulates their mind. Non lingual communication often relies on inflection and pets pick up on that.
We find ourselves back at Diamond Point in Muskegon County once again for episode 39 of Dog Blessed brought to you by Clock's Timeless Pets and Must Love Dogs Pet Boutique in Grand Haven.
Imagine it like this. You kind of set the tone in your relationship with your pet. Your pet will have it's own personality for sure, but to bring out the best of it, take the lead and speak to them as you would some one you like to engage with. Thus, the title of this weeks show. Be friendly, be inquisitive, be adventurous and lead. You'll get out what you put in so add in a little zest and zip with your pet and watch them respond.
You can visit Jodi on line at DOG BLESSED. You can also pick up a copy of her Pet Health Journal and Workbook. It's a great way to keep track of your pets health and behavior for helping assist trainers and vets. Our thanks to Must Love Dogs Pet Boutique in Grand Haven and Clock's Timeless Pets for their support of the show!
