Dean Koontz had written, “No matter how close we are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog”.
Charles Bukowski had said, “when I am feeling low, all I have to do is watch my cats and my courage returns”.
True indeed! Pets are perhaps the best companions we can have.

Are you a pet parent or are you planning to adopt one?

Having a pet is definitely a great idea. Believe it or not, they can help you in maintaining better physical and mental health. The unconditional love they shower on you, the companionship they provide, have immense healing capacities. Studies show that children, who grow up caring for pets, are more secure and empathetic than adults. People with pets are less prone to stress-induced diseases. The benefits of having a pet with you just go on and on and on.
A common problem faced by city-based pet parents is the resistance they face from their surroundings. With apartment living being the order of the day, their non-pet owning neighbors are found to be apprehensive of having a pet around them. They end up complaining and disapproving of the activities related to the pets quite often.
The Indian Constitution does allow pets in apartments. So, no one can stop you from adopting a pet of your own. However, being part of a community, certain responsibilities get added once you become a pet parent.

The first thing is to make yourself aware of any specific guidelines your apartment community follows for the pets. You need to take good care of your pet, keep him on a leash, make sure that he is receiving his vaccinations regularly, and should not allow him to roam around freely. Train him properly so that he doesn’t cause any inconvenience to the neighbors. Toilet training of pets is a mandatory requirement. You cannot expect your pet to relieve himself anywhere and everywhere. Clean up after him, if he does it outside the home.
Your pet is your family. Train him the way you would train your child. Would you like your child to inconvenience others? No, right? The same should be the case with your pet. You are a parent to him too. Shower him with love and inculcate habits in him that would make him get adjusted to his surroundings well.

Happy pet parenting!
