Happy Friday everyone! Wow this week went fast!
So many things going on, back to school, getting back on track of things etc . . .
How are your pets adjusting to the schedule change?
My huskies seem to be wondering around my daughters bedroom door quite a bit since she has been back in school.
Just a quick tip to help your pets with the transition of the kids being away :
- Spend a little extra time with them, as they may be feeling lonely.
- Maybe purchase a couple new toys.
- Puzzle toys are great to keep pets busy until the kids return from school.
Let's move on to today's post.
Do our pets have fears?
We know people have certain fears and even phobias, such a spiders, heights, and even clowns, but have you ever thought about what a dog (or cat) fear would be?
If you know how to read your pets body language, and be open minded to what they are saying to you, you will be able to figure out their fears.
Curious to know what my huskies fears are?
Mika is scared of the dark.
Seems like a pretty normal fear . . . for a human.
But dogs and cats can be scared of the dark too.
I realized Mika was scared of the dark right from the get go.
She would whine, and cry at night when everything was dark, and we couldn't figure out why.
We decided to leave some light on for her one night, and that night . . . no whining.
From that point on, Mika now has a night light, and she never whines at night now.
Another reason I know she is scared of the dark, is because at night, when it's time for her bed time pee, our yard is pretty much pitch black. She refuses to go to her normal pee spot to use the bathroom at night. She will stay by the light source.
Lexus is scared of tall buildings.
She will walk down any road, at any time of day, with no issues.
When I try and take her down the main road, she is fine until there are tall buildings.
I'm not sure where this fear came from, but she will do anything in her power to stay away from those buildings.
Lexus also has a fear of bridges.
Koda is scared of garbage bags!
Yep. You heard that right.
My big strong stud muffin Koda, is terrified of garbage bags.
Not white garbage bags, just the black ones.
You know how you kind of have to shake the bag a couple times to open it up?
He will run as fast as he can to the other room, and peek around the corner.
He is also scared of lakes.
As for my kitties . . . well, I have no idea what they fear. My guess would be nothing. They will take on any dog of any size, and they hunt the biggest baddest bugs around!
So, the Sibe Tribe is curious to know, what are your pets fears?
What do you do to address those fears?
And has ANYONE figured out a cats fear yet?
Thanks for spending your Friday with us, and we will see you tomorrow for Siberian Saturday!
