I love pets very much. I have been keeping dog for 13 years and he is very clever. Every morning he comes to wake me up. But unfortunately, he can't help me with a lot of chores around the house.
In my family all kids do various tasks to help me out with the housekeeping. Don't you just wish our pets could be like that? They are part of the family too, and as such, they should be contributing to keeping the house neat and tidy. But if you've got pets that can't help you with your housekeeping and the only thing they make is a mess, don't expect to teach them quickly. My dog can't do anything like the tasks above, but he plays with my kids and shows them love and affection all the time. And for me this is quite enough. So I regularly hire domestic cleaners after each mess that he does and can't stay mad at him for long.
