Want to live a healthier lifestyle? Get a Pointer. Research shows that pet ownership helps reduce stress, lowers blood pressure and wards off feelings of loneliness and depression.While nothing can top the love and companionship of a Pointer, there are a few displeasing behaviors that are unacceptable – from barking all evening to messing the floor to chewing on your shoes while you’re not in sight.
If your Pointer displays this behavior, it could be acting out due to anxiety, pent-up frustration or because of inadequate training. With appropriate lifestyle corrections and rigorous training, you will be on the way to having a jovial, well-behaved pet. The following recommendations will help your dog become more disciplined:
Tips To Training Your Pointer:Spay or neuter
The Humane Society of the United States states that this common procedure could help your Pointer have a longer life, be healthier and have fewer behavior issues.
Training The Pointer:Help your pet relax
Similar to people, Pointers do get anxious, agitated and stressed out. That’s why some vets recommend giving your Pointer a calming therapeutic, such as pet calming spray, to help reduce hyperactivity.
Made with natural ingredients, pet calming spray acts fast to alleviate restlessness, fear, nervousness and hyper-aggression and lets antsy pets sleep throughout the night.
Training Your Pointer:Have an exercise routine
Provide your Pointer with routinely scheduled neighborhood walks two times per day. This will help your Pointer avoid boredom, which might lead to bad behavior.
Tips To Training The Pointer:Go to school
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, enrolling your Pointer in an obedience class will teach you how to manage your Pointer’s actions both safely and humanely.
How to Train Your Pointer:Be patient
Even though teaching your Pointer to be more disciplined may take focus on your part, it is worth it. After all, as man’s best friend, your Pointer will appreciate bonding with you during the process.
