37 ways to improve your pet’s wellbeing – Part 6 (Social Connection)

Wellbeing is a massive topic. What are some of the ways that you can improve your pet's social life?

33. Ensure they have enough of the right sort of company

Some pets, such as Syrian hamsters, are solitary and need to be kept alone, while others, such as rabbits and guinea pigs, need the companionship of others of the same species.

34. Teach them good manners

Having a well-mannered pet is important for the social life of both you and your pet!  Teach them how you want them to behave and reward them for doing it right.

35. Play and interact with them

Most pets love to play and this is a great way to improve your relationship.

36. Don’t force them to interact if they don’t want to

Respect your pet’s need for privacy and space and teach your friends and relatives to do the same!

37. Make suitable arrangements for holidays

Make sure that your pet will be well cared for when you go away.  Being fed once or twice a day is not enough, remember that your pet needs companionship too.  Whoever is looking after your pet needs to recognise signs of illness and be able to take them to a vet if necessary.
