Setting boundaries as a pet owner

Whether you’re a new pet owner or you’ve had pets all your life. We all have a pet… or know someone who has a pet that does whatever it wants. Whether you like it or not, its time to set some rules! You have to be the boss. Because, your probably not too pleased living his/her way. You can’t be lenient with anything you don’t like. Set them straight! At the same time, you don’t want to be too harsh. So, first make up a set of rules you want to enforce. Then, when they disobey, do what you think you should to punish them. The first time will be the hardest, but it will get easier from then on. Every time  that pet disobeys your rules you must punish them the same way. (make sure it is a punishment they don’t enjoy). Be consistent. Eventually they should just give up and get the point. They will try hard to get their way but, in the long run you will be happy you did this. Your pet and you will enjoy a long happy life together. (your way).
