What an exciting present, the best gift ever!
Maybe you’re thinking “what a wonderful gift, a baby animal!” could be for your child. Maybe they’ve been begging and nagging and reminding you to get them their own puppy, or budgie, or kitty, or bunny, or…?
Then the week after Christmas (or their birthday…), you’re thinking, “OMG! What was I thinking! This is not working out…”
Getting a baby animal for a pet shouldn’t be a snap decision. It takes some careful thought and research to do right and for everyone to benefit from and enjoy the experience.
Is your child ready for the responsibility of a pet? If they aren’t old enough, it is up to you to be the teacher for both the pet and the child.
Today my guest Christine and I are sharing 3 Worst Mistakes to Avoid so you, your family, your child AND your new baby animal can be happy and healthy forevermore.
We discussed the following topics:
- What is it like for the baby animal, from their viewpoint?
- Why is understanding the animal’s experience so important?
- Where can your animal go when they feel overwhelmed or scared?
- Pet Proofing! Do your research on what is and is not safe to have in your home with a pet
Remember: if your pet’s not happy, nobody’s going to be happy!
