The love we have for our pets is partly to blame why they make a mess inside the home. Some people even allow their pets inside their bedroom. They want their pets beside them. There is no problem with you allowing them inside your bedroom since it is your own sanctuary. However, once you notice that your furniture gets scratches and your room is starting to smell unpleasant, that is the time you blame your pets for it. So what is the best thing to do in times like this? Well, it is very simple; discipline your pets.
Implement the following tricks and see the big change in your bedroom.
As I have already mentioned, discipline your pets, the way you do it to your children. Start the training while they are still young.
Reprimand your pet if you see him on your bed. Adapt different tones of voice. A tone that will show you are angry or upset and another to show that you are happy. Do not go into the habit of giving your pet a whip or a beating. You can also drive him away from your bed by spraying some water; this is very effective for cats. This will get your pet to understand that the bed is not for him.
Give your pet his own sleeping area and let him know that this is where he can lie down. Put a rug or a blanket on the floor and tell him that this is his own bed.
If your pet is a dog, get him a crate or use enclosures. Dogs love to move from side to side so get him a crate where he can do this as well as stand, sit and snooze. Your pet dog may whine during the first nights, as it is still adjusting; nevertheless, do not pay attention. Tell your pet dog to relax and let it get used staying in the crate. This will also teach your dog to sleep on its own.
If you have a cat, buy a cathouse. This will serve as its bedroom. You can get this item from pet shops,
For your cat, let him have his own cathouse where she can take a snooze or just lie down quietly. Cathouses are partitioned making them good if you have two or more cats.
Cat trees give your cat a place where it can climb, play and run. These will keep it busy and will stay in the cat trees than on your furniture.
Keep your pet busy with pet toys. It can likewise keep its claws busy and will have fun playing with it.
As much as possible, do not let your pets inside your bedroom. Let your pet know that he is not allowed inside your room.
Lastly, give your pet a bath regularly. Buy him pet shampoo and sprays to eliminate its bad smell.
Start the training while your pet is still young. It is actually much the same as when you training your child to do things. Of course, you need to have patience in training your pets. Nevertheless, make your pets understand that they must follow your rules. Likewise, do not give your pets a whipping but talk to them. Once you have built this understanding with your pets, you will be confident that they will not destroy your furniture.
