Have your pet dog living with you? Here’s how to clean up.

Raising your pet dog at home can turn your living space into a mess. Keeping your home free of doggy hair and muddy paw prints can be quite cumbersome. Here are a few tips on how to reduce the inevitable hassle and keep your home spic and span.

In a way, pets especially dogs are like children. They may be cute, but also tend to be very messy. You have to be firm with them so that things don’t get out of control. Prevent the irritation and take charge of the situation with these suggestions on cleaning your home.

Whatever be the breed of your pet, whether it’s a hairy Golden Retriever or a Boxer, it can be quite a chore to keep our homes clean and smelling fresh. Here are a few tips that we’ve amassed on staying on top of the mess that dogs can make.

The Dirt

Have you ever had your Dog run into the house after a walk or playing out in the back yard or rolling in mud or digging around in the garden? Keep a bucket and doggy towel ready for such incidents. Once your pup wishes to come indoors, its recommended to give his body and muddy paws quick rub down rather than getting your clean floors all muddied up. Your pet is good to go after a quick rub with a wet towel.

This habit can also help do away with any toxins that can be irritating to humans if they come into contact with them. Get rid of any environmental allergies in the bargain.

The Bugs

Pet dogs unleashed outdoors have a tendency to go over a variety of surfaces like grass, dirt, sand as well as backyards, sidewalks and parking lots. Dogs stand the risk of gathering eggs of parasitic worms on their paws and thereafter risk transferring the same into homes and cars. These worms also known as Helminths can pose a substantial risk for human infection as well. More so, if you have babies or toddlers crawling around the floor.

Regular Grooming

Whatever the breed your pet is, a regular bathing schedule or occasional visit to the dog wash is highly recommended. Regular grooming of your pet on an even more frequent schedule is also great for keeping your dog and home fresh and clean.

Brush your pet every day and bath your with an organic pet shampoo, that can help in the prevention of ticks, fleas, worms, and more! Not only will your pet’s coat be healthy, it will also look and feel so!

Doggy Hair

Pet hair being shed everywhere is one of the most annoying problems that dog owners have to deal with. It spreads on the floors, the kitchen, the furniture and also on clothing. Train your dog to rest or sleep on a blanket or rug meant for the purpose. Clean it regularly, and be sure to brush as much as hair before you throw it in the washing machine.

Vacuum your carpets and furniture, by going it over more than once in different directions. It’s best to go in for a hand held high suction vacuum to get into all the nooks and crevices of the upholstery. The best thing that works on gathering hair from clothing is a really sticky lint roller or packing tape(!) wrapped around your hand!

Most of our dogs especially puppies tend to have the occasional accident. To get particularly tough stains and odors out of your carpets and upholstery, you can use a fabric shampoo tailored for the purpose.

All the tips above can not only help you keep your home clean, but also result in a clean and healthy pet. Be sure to keep your pet healthy, hygienic and happy with a good diet, plenty of exercise and regular visits to the dog wash!
