    We all love playing with our furry friends. Whether it's a cat or dog or even a rabbit, animals bring joy and excitement wherever they are. But having a pet at home is not that easy. You have to feed your pet regularly, understand if they are sad or anxious and train them like kids to behave well.

    So here are top five Alexa skills that every pet owner needs to start using now:

    -- Calm my pet: Pets sometimes can be difficult to deal with especially when they are anxious or hyper. Under these circumstances playing music can be one of the remedies that the pet owners can use to calm their pets down. And that's exactly what Alexa's Calm My Pet skill does. All you need to do is to enable this skill is say, “Alexa, open Calm My Pet” and it will play soothing music to calm your furry companion.

    -- Al's Dog Training Tips: Are you planning to train your dog? If you are, Al's Dog Training Tips is an Alexa skill that you need to try out. It offers tips and techniques on how to train your dog. Additionally, it offers insight into the behaviour of your pet too. You can enable the skill by saying “Alexa, open Al's Dog Training Tips”.

    -- The Dog Feeder: This skill is particularly helpful where all the members in the household have different work schedules as it helps you ensure that the dog has been fed before the last member leaves the house. To use this skill, say, “Alexa, ask the dog if we fed her?” Every time you ask Alexa if you fed the dog, she will tell you the last time he/she was fed. Alexa will also follow up with a question if you plan on feeding the dog now.

    -- Calm my cat: Cats are generally more anxious than dogs by nature and so they can get stressed out easily. Calm My Cat Alexa skill is specifically designed to help people with such situations. It plays calming music for your feline friend to make it feel more relaxed. All you need to do to enable this skill is say, “Alexa, open Relax My Cat”.

    -- The Dog translator: Confused what your dog is trying to say? This Alexa skill is there to help you make sense of your dog's woofs. You can enable the skill by saying, “Alexa, open Dog Translator” and following the instructions.
