Descripción

Every pet owner knows how intriguing and complex animals can be. Each creature is endearingly individual and full of surprises.

Taking care of all aspects of a pet’s life can be a tricky business. Cats can be spirited and mysterious. Dogs can be untameable but adorable. Before we get you to the hands on part of their personal care we spend a lot of time taking you through their psychology so you fully understand their habits, instincts and development first.

You’ll discover the answers to questions like:

What’s normal behaviour for a dog?
What level of understanding does my young cat have?
Are certain traits specific to some breeds?
What is my puppy trying to communicate to me?
What do those strange cat sounds mean?
What’s going on with my pet?

We’ll also give you good insight into what can cause a pet to be unhappy or stressed with topics like:

Eating disorders
Excess scratching
Aggression
Separation anxiety
Soiling
