Starting a business and welcoming a new pet into the home simultaneously can be quite the handful, to say the least. If that’s you, and you’ve just recently welcomed a new pet on top of starting a new business venture, here’s how to begin your new project with a happy pet in tow, courtesy of the experts at 2 Paws Up Inc.
Starting Things Off Smoothly
Of course, you’ll want things to go smoothly right from the beginning, and this begins with choosing the right business structure from the get-go. An LLC is a great example of a business structure for your new business with many perks that include tax advantages, more flexibility, and limited liability. If you’re unsure of where to begin, a formation service can assist you in filing your business and will also inform you of the legalities of filing your business.
You’ll also want to consider getting your home ready to welcome your new pet. Ideally, you should attempt to eliminate all those things that bring about negative energy. This means getting rid of any clutter that may be distracting, as well as letting in plenty of fresh and natural light to make your home feel calmer and inviting – for you and your pet.
Getting a Routine in Place
If your pet has been more accustomed to staying in the comfort of his surroundings, and you now have to take him in with you to work to get stuff done, establishing a routine for your pet that is consistent will go a long way in making sure he settles into his new surroundings nicely. Here, it’s more about creating a repetitive routine where your dog can anticipate your next move so that he feels more secure with all the new changes taking place.
Make Use of Technology
The fact that most of us use technology daily to help us manage our days better and even stay connected with family and friends should make it an obvious choice regarding finding ways to entertain our pets – even when we’re busy. Of course, there are many apps available that can help us to take better care of our pets that even include ways to monitor our pets when we’re not with them. You can also use technology to streamline your work – marketing in particular – allowing you much more free time. For instance, an infographic template can save you hours of computer and graphic design work, and it won’t cost you a thing!
Setting Up Their Own Personal Space
Suppose you feel your pet should hold VIP status when it comes to setting aside a space for him in your new office. Then apart from kitting out his space with all the latest pet-friendly gadgets, you should also take care to include those items that are most familiar to him too. So, don’t forget about his favorite toy, treat, blanket, and bed to make him feel like your office is his new favorite place.
Enlisting the Help of Professional Trainers
Say you’ve done all you can to make your pet feel more at home in his new surroundings, but you feel like you’re not seeing any positive results from your efforts, then it may be time to start thinking about enlisting the assistance of professional trainers like 2 Paws Up Inc to help your dog along the way. If you have a playful and energetic new dog that just can’t seem to sit still at all, a professional trainer has the expertise and usually knows all the tips and tricks to get your dog to become more even-tempered for those days when he can’t be as rambunctious at the office. Professional pet trainers can also help to train your pet in other areas too from potty training to becoming more sociable around other pets and people and is definitely worth looking into if you feel like you’re fighting an uphill battle.
In summary, training a new pet while you’re busy handling all the other challenges that come with starting a new business is something that you’ll have to plan for carefully in order to avoid feeling overwhelmed by the sheer work of it all. That is why you should consider getting all the help you need so that you and your pet can ease into your new role of new pet owner and entrepreneur smoothly.
