What Other Great Pets To Have With A Dog

For many dog owners, getting a friend for their dog can be tricky. It can be difficult to predict how your dog is going to react once they see their new roommate. You have seen how dogs are so kind to their new roommates, but it is entirely possible for your dog to react in a completely opposite way.

But, don’t fret about that, if you think your dog needs a friend or you want to have one more pet in the house, then you should go for it. And in this article, I have a list of great pets to have for dog owners.

Birds

Birds are very entertaining, funny, and social. If you decide to own a bird, expect your bird to be all over your dog. Because they love to socialize with everyone and probably at all times. Owning a bird can be chaotic, however, depending on the bird’s personality, but for some people, that’s exactly what they’re looking for.

As you might already know, getting a bird means that you have to commit to a life-long relationship. The same thing goes for your dog because the chances are both the dog and the bird are going to be together for their entire lives.

Just be careful if your dog has a strong hunting instinct. You don’t want your dog to suddenly attack the bird the moment you introduce them to each other. Do it from far away, preferably through a window or door. See how your dog reacts and proceed from there.

Guinea pigs

If you want another pet that is chill and calm, guinea pigs could be the best choice for you. Imagine a guinea pig and a dog chilling together on a sofa, that’s what you will see if you decide to get a guinea pig.

Guinea pigs are also easy to take care of. They don’t need much space and food and can entertain themselves by simply exploring or playing. Besides, it’s just so warming to see a dog and a guinea pig cuddle together.

Cats

Speaking of a great friend for a dog, why not get a cat? The best thing about a cat and a dog in a house is always to see how different the two animals are. One of them is always active, while the other is not. They love to tease each other, play with each other, chase each other, and cuddle together.

But, considering how vary cats’ and dogs’ personalities are, it’s recommended to get a cat with a personality that fits with your dog. Introducing a cat to a dog might take a long time too. Just be patient and don’t let them meet each other until both of them are ready.

Rabbits

Rabbits are simply one of the cutest pets anyone can get. Seeing a rabbit and a dog being best friends just melts my heart. Rabbits can be calm or energetic depending on their personality, and they can easily get along with dogs.

Again, learn about your dog’s hunting instinct first. If your dog is a hunting breed, you should proceed carefully. Otherwise, calm and nonsporting dogs can get along with rabbits with no problem.

Dogs

Obviously, you can get another dog as a pet. Dogs can get along easily with other dogs as long as they’re introduced properly. Let them get each other’s scent and do their thing at their own pace. Expect both of your dogs to do almost everything together and you should train them both at the same time if possible.

Getting a puppy is also a great idea. It is so fun to see the older dog teaching the puppy about how things work in the house. Sometimes, your dog can teach the puppy better than you do. And don’t forget to get another bed so they won’t steal each other’s bed.
