As pet owners, we all know that one of the biggest challenges to having pets is keeping a clean home. Whether you live in a house, apartment, or you’re living the ‘van life’, it’s just not the same without the pitter-patter of paws. But how can you ensure that the evidence of having pets is a happy home and not mounds of hair and lingering odors? The good news is with the right habits and tools, it’s completely within reach for your abode to be both clean and pet-friendly!
Clean As A (Dog) Whistle It’s no secret – sometimes pets can really stink. While our animals don’t require bathing as often as we do, going for too long without regular cleaning can leave your fur baby – and your furniture – smelling a little less than welcoming. Each pet is different, but a general rule of thumb for dogs is to bathe them every 4 weeks. You can bathe them as frequently as every other week (or more often if using a gentle shampoo), but you should never bathe multiple times a week unless recommend by your vet. Conversely, at minimum, you should bathe your dog at least once every 3 months. When in doubt, follow your nose – if they start to smell, it’s probably time. Don’t forget to condition their coat, too, especially if they are long-haired. Nobody likes going back and combing out tangles and mats if you don’t have to.
For cats, it can sometimes be quite the event to bathe them. If your feline friend loves a warm bath, there are plenty of safe shampoo options available. If there’s no way they’re letting you get them near a tub, we also carry convenient wipes that work great for cleaning and even removing loose hair.
There’s a wide range of options available for your in-home salon, so pick your favorite fragrance, run a bath, and prepare for some great bonding time with your soon-to-be odor-free friend!SHOP NOW
Brush It Out Sure, a clean dog or cat helps clear the air, but what about the rugs, carpet, and furniture? They say, ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’, so before your living room ends up with more hair than an ‘80s rock band, get a handle on the situation by regularly brushing your dog or cat. Consistent, healthy grooming habits not only provide a great way to show positive attention to your pet but help keep your home clean by removing loose hair and dander in a controlled manner, rather than allowing it to end up all over your living space. Whether your pet has long or short hair, curly or straight, there are a multitude of brushes, combs, and other tools at your disposal to get the job done.SHOP NOW
