Pet Care Charts Introduction
Getting a youngster of any age to give needed attention to pets is a classic problem that charts can help. Whether it’s walking a dog or feeding the fish, cleaning a litter box or brushing a horse, our charts can help track the behavior(s). As we all know, there’s a often a point at which the joy of caring for a new pet turns from fun to being a chore. Some kids need more encouragement than others so that the action becomes part of a daily routine without their grumbling.
Selecting a Pet Care Chart
Look through our colorful charts and find one that is a fit for your child and the pet(s) you have in mind. Sometimes the tasks are limited–sprinkle food in a fishbowl for a young boy or girl. In a different situation there may be multiple steps during the day .
Using Our Printable Pet Care Charts
As responsibility grows the charts will become a source of pride to the child. Some of these charts are specific to a certain pet, others can be adapted as you wish. There will be circumstances where a single task is required — such as feeding the fish for a young child. In a different situation, several steps of care may be needed by an older son or daughter during the day. If you need a special type of chart for pet care, please let us know.
Keep it Interesting
Be sure to give verbal praise for appropriate behavior in looking after a pet. Once the chart has served its purpose, give it a break and start it up again when efforts seem to slacken.
