When you’re in a relationship, it’s natural for you and your partner to bring your worlds together with family, friends and even pets. Unfortunately, if the romantic connection runs its course and you choose to breakup, things can get complicated. It is easier to break the association between the close people in your life from your ex, but when it comes to your pets, it’s hard to make a clean break. The reasonable side of you does not want to keep your ex from the pet, but the other part of you may want to cut all ties in any way possible. Here’s how to co-parent with your ex and your little furry friend.

It is never easy to keep relations with a romantic partner from the past that you would rather forget, but making the situation awkward can lead to a hostile outcome. If you’re in this predicament, don’t fret. You will be able to get through this- you may have to compromise on things to run smoothly. If you’re in need of some sound advice, read on to handle your situation as seamlessly as possible.

1. Forgive them.

To get to a point where you and your ex can communicate about co-parenting you can’t harbor any resentment. Deciding to forgive them doesn’t mean that you have to be friendly; it means that you can put your issues to the side.

2. Negotiate terms of custody.

This is the time to sit down with your ex and come to an agreement. Maybe you both can alternate back and forth every week caring for your pet? Perhaps one of you can take weekends and every other Thursday and Friday? Depending on your lifestyle, creating a set schedule is the only way to avoid any issues down the road.

3. Always involve your ex.

Should any problems arise with your pet give them the courtesy of knowing what’s going on. Your goal is to create an environment where you can both be present and communicate with each other. Sharing information about your pet will allow you both to bridge that gap.
