Natural remedies for inattention in cats and dogs to help pets with short attentions stay focused.

The adrenal glands help the body adapt to stress through the release of natural steroids and hormones. With chronic stress, age and disease, the adrenals can become fatigued, affecting many bodily systems, including performance and memory. Natural supplements function as a brain tonic providing neuro-protective support for cognitive disorder such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, promoting healthy brain ecology and function, and maintaining healthy concentration, focus, memory and mental alertness.

Inattention can be defined as having concentration difficulties or the inability to follow through on instructions. This may not seem like a concern if your inattentive pet is a docile house cat, however, inattention can become a problem if your inattentive pet is a show dog or a puppy in need of training.

Inattention can result in frequent mistakes on show day as your well trained dog is suddenly distracted by all the sights and sounds of the show. As a pet owner, it can be very disheartening when you and your pet have put in so much time and effort for the big day, and when it finally arrives, your star dog suddenly can’t concentrate and doesn’t seem to be listening to any of your commands.

Inattention is also difficult for pet owners trying to train and socialize young dogs. It often means that you have to put in twice the effort and if your dog is inattentive then chances are that they won’t remember what was being taught in the first place.

Having an inattentive pet can be frustrating; however your pet is probably totally unaware and oblivious to this. Remember that like some people have difficulty concentrating, so do some pets. It is not something they can be punished or blamed for, especially when shows and training classes are so full of excitement and bustling noises and smells that are also demanding their attention.

A healthy diet is essential if you want your pet to perform at its best! Make sure your pet is on a high-quality and balanced diet that is low in fat and high in nutrients.

Make sure your pet has eaten before a show or training session as they’ll need lots of energy, and a hungry pet is likely to be inattentive and distracted. Just as important is making sure your pet is not over-fed as this will more than likely make your pet feel sluggish and unmotivated.

Anxiety and stress can easily distract your pet and make concentrating a near impossible task. This is something that usually improves with increased exposure to whatever is causing the anxiety in the first place. Try desensitizing your pet slowly to the things that are most likely going to be present at shows, such as loud noises, crowds of people and other animals. Herbal supplements specific to calming your pet will also go a long way to reducing nerves.

Excitement is just as problematic as anxiety when it comes to concentration, and many pets do get incredibly excited during shows and training. Try to calm them down by talking calmly and soothingly to your pet while stroking them gently.

Showing and training your pet should be a fun activity for both you and your pet, so try not get caught up in high expectations. Remember that if your pet stops enjoying it, then their attention will wonder and they’ll become unmotivated. Keep training and performing fun and exciting for them.

Many pets are extremely sensitive to our emotional and mental states. It is therefore essential to remain calm, de-stressed and focused if you expect the same from your pet. Becoming stressed out or irritated with your pet is the worst thing to do if you’re struggling to get your pet to focus. Rather take a deep breath or a time-out and come back and approach the situation calmly.

Exercise your pet regularly to improve over-all physical and mental vitality. While performing dogs generally get plenty of exercise, it’s important that it’s consistent and that they aren’t over-worked just before shows.

Provide your pet with plenty of fresh clean water before, during and after shows. Many pets are too distracted to drink at events, but drinking should be continuously encouraged. A thistly pet will definitely be distracted and unable to concentrate, and dehydration can occur quickly if your dog is in the sun and being active.
