(KTVI) – Dd you get a new pet for the holidays? Just like a newborn baby, you begin to notice that pet is there everyday, day in and day out and it has needs just like a baby.
Steve Smolinski is the general manager of the Dardenne Prairie Petco. He shared some good advice for pet owners.
- keep pets active in the winter months
- keep them mentally stimulated
- socialization is key
The "nothing exercise" is helpful. Just sit with your pet until it calms down. An overhyper pet will eventually take the cues from you.
