Cat Declawing: The Price of Convenience
Considering whether to declaw your cat or not? The declawing of cats is still routinely performed in this country, even though it is illegal or considered inhumane in many other countries around the world. Most people decide to have their cats declawed as a matter of convenience to protect their furniture from cat scratching or to guard against injury to themselves and family members.
Barking is an important method of communication for dogs but this can be an issue if the barking is persistent or excessive. Below are some ideas to address this common issue.
What to Do
Identify when, where, and why the dog is barking. If you know what triggers the barking, you can come up with a plan to reduce or prevent it. For example, if your dog is barking at other dogs passing by the front window, you can block her access to the window or apply window film that will obscure her view.
