Introducing Your Pet To Home Guest

January 31, 2020

Whether it’s the holiday season or a dinner party or summer vacation, your home can get busy at times. Since your pet is a family member, your guest should feel as comfortable as you do in your pet-friendly home. There are many ways to introduce your pets to your family and friends that will help create a peaceful and happy environment for all.

To avoid any unnecessary trauma, and have a positive and exciting experience, follow these tips when introducing your pets to your home guest.

 Here are a few helpful tips on how to properly introduce your pets to new people. 

1. Separate Space For Guest and Your Pet 

When guest arrives, place your dog in a separate room until your guest are settled in your home. This will avoid over exciting your dog, causing them to misbehave and jump with uncontrollable excitement. Separating your pet room your guest will be especially helpful if you have more than one guest visiting. Once everyone is settled, bring your puppy out to meet your family and friends. 

 2. Pet Treats

Allow your guests to offer your pet treats. Some pets can be shy and nervous about approaching people they are not familiar with. Treats are an excellent way to eliminate shyness and develop the trust your pet needs to happily meet your guest. Allow your guests to hold the treats in their hands and allow your pet to initiate the introduction and approach your guest. This gentle way of building trust for your pet will help them welcome your guest to your home.

3. Don’t Force the Introduction 

Allow the process of introduction to happen naturally since dogs like to sniff out people first. Take your pet and guest on a walk together. It may take a little time for your pet to feel comfortable,
