It may sound counter-intuitive, but ignoring a bad behaviour can cause this behaviour to go extinct. Reacting to a behavior strongly can cause it to remain longer. Some dogs might increase unwanted behavior before it goes extinct, but don’t give up! Keep trying to teach your dog that alternative good behavior has rewards! (more…)
Be careful not to send mixed signals to your pet by giving them a treat or food soon after bad behavior. Punishing bad behavior can also be harmful as your pet may not understand his offence. Instead of punishing, either ignore it or try redirecting the situation into producing alternate good behavior that you can reward! (more…)

Betta Fish (Fighting Fish) are spectacular and beautiful pets with a unique temperament! Now for sale at our Pet Safari Outlets!! Taking care of them properly is important, and fun! Here are some basic facts and tips:
1. Do not tap the aquarium with your fingers or any other object. Instead, try moving your finger back and forth in front of the Betta without upsetting it, to play with it.
2. Buy the fish you feel most connected to rather than the most gorgeous or healthy one. Betta’s learn to recognise their owner’s faces! Let the fish choose you!
3. Betta fishes have lifespans of around 4 to 6 years but could live up to 10 years under proper care. In local context, some pet owners keep them in a bowl or tanks between 2 to 5 litres without heater if room temperature is stable but a recommendation is to provide an aquarium fitted with a heater and a filter.
Do not place 2 male Betta fish together in the same tank. They will fight to the death! Only put females together in groups no less than 5, with plenty of space in the tank.
Betta fish have delicate and beautifully flowing fins!
Local Betta pet keeping habits may differ but more general information can be found at: http://www.wikihow.com/Take-Care-of-a-Betta-Fish. (more…)
