Their discipline lessons should start early; although it will take time for them to learn these basics.

If they are busy with their toys, the tendency of making the home messy will be lesser.

By interacting with them, you will be able teach them some manners. They will be guided on developing good habits. By being with them, you can train them and they will later know how to identify what’s right and wrong.

To keep them healthy, you should also bring them regularly to a vet. Their medical condition should be regularly checked as they may already be inflicted with diseases without your knowledge. As their owner, you should be aware of the various diseases that they may likely acquire. That will be helpful in making them free of those.

Pets are likely to acquire asthma, flu, arthritis, deafness, diarrhea, constipation, dental problems, eye diseases, skin allergies, fever, colds and others.
