5 TIPS FOR CLEANING WITH A DOG IN THE HOME
Updated: Mar 23
Our furry friends are part of the family but no matter how much we love our dogs, we don’t want to live in the mess that often accompanies them. From dog hair to mud, life gets messier with pets. Luckily, we can have a pet AND a clean home.
Here are 5 tips for keeping your home tidy while living with a dog
1. INVEST IN A GREAT VACUUM
Not all vacuums are created equal. The vacuum you use must be able to battle against the large amounts of hair that come with our furry friends. Aim for a vacuum that is designed for pet hair and has great reviews, they are with every penny.
2. KEEP YOUR DOG CLEAN
Keeping your dog clean can make a huge difference in the cleanliness of your home. Bathe them at home or opt for a groomer. In between shampoos, you can wipe them down with a damp wash cloth or rinse them with water. Wipe their feet at the door during muddy times of the year.
3. CLEAN YOUR DOG’S THINGS
Don’t forget to clean your dog’s things. This includes their food and water bowls, toys, bed and anything else they come into contact with.
