Proper training and careful management may help your pet to get along with other animals at home, or outside the home (e.g. at the dog park). In the beginning it’s critical to take precautions. Separate your animals and ensure they are not together unsupervised. Comfort between all your pets may occur very gradually and requires patience and dedication.

We recommend the following:

  • Consider their environment. Is your pet healthy, happy and well exercised? These factors can influence anxiety and anti-social behaviour.
  • Reward good behaviour. Rewards through attention and food can go a long way. Reinforce positive interaction, rather than reprimanding unwanted behaviours.
  • Seek professional help. A trainer who specialises in positive reinforcement techniques may be able to support and help you.
