In this article you will learn seven easy steps toward making your Papillon happier. As a new Papillon owner I am certain you will want to provide the very best life possible for your pet. Pet ownership is a responsibility much like having children.

The responsibility that comes with having a Papillon is not to be taken lightly. It is up to you to make sure that your Papillon needs are met and that you have done everything in your power to make your Papillon?s life a happy one.

Below are the seven easy things you can do to make sure that your Papillon has the best life possible:

1. Make sure your Papillon has its ID tag. The ID tag tells where your Papillon lives and of any medical conditions your Papillon may have. If your Papillon wanders off, it may be the only thing standing between your Papillon and the pound!

2. Prevent behavioral problems by enrolling your Papillon in a behavior training class before it acquires any bad habits. This tip will make both you and your Papillon happier for the entire lifetime you are together!

3. Get your Papillon a check up from a vet at least once a year. Some behavior problems can be health related and taking your Papillon to the vet on a regular basis will help you with tip # 2.

4. Prepare for disasters. Your Papillon cannot read the escape plan you have made for your family in case of a flood, fire, or other disaster! Make sure your escape plans include someone in your family having the job of securing or gathering up and removing your Papillon from your home and taking them to a safe place.

5. Plan for the future. Who will take care of your Papillon if something happens to you? Make sure you have a "godparent" for all of your pets. This includes short term care as well if you are in the hospital, incapacitated, or out of town.

6. Learn to avoid dog bites by training your dog and your family. This is especially important for children. Every year 4.7 million children are bitten by dogs. 80% are by dogs they know and have been in daily contact with! See for more information and how to videos. (The site is part of The Humane Society web site.)

7. And last but not least - Have a heart - Be smart - and have your Papillon neutered or spayed as soon as they are old enough. If you can't afford to have your pet spayed or neutered go to these two web sites to see their requirements for getting a voucher to pay to have the procedure done. or Both sites will help you pay for the vet bill to get your pet spayed or neutered.

And those are 7 simple tips to help you make your Papillon?s life happier.
