4 Carpet Care Tips for Dog Owners
While dogs may be known as Man’s Best Friend, the same can’t necessarily be said for their relationship with your family’s furniture and carpet. However, you don’t have to choose between your home and your pet. Here are a few tips to keep your furniture and carpets from going to the dogs.
Minimize Shedding – With regular brushing and bathing of your furry family members, you can greatly reduce the amount of dog hair that finds its way to your carpet and furniture. Aim to brush your dog a couple times a week, and routinely bathe them or take them to the groomers. Regular brushing and bathing also benefits their health.
Collect the Rest – Short of shaving your dog, there is no sure way to completely prevent dog hair from gathering in your home. Keep your carpets and furniture vacuumed, and use special tools such as a carpet rake, or even a rubber glove to collect what the brush misses.
Wipe Dirty Paws – Reduce the amount of dirt, mud, and other outdoor debris your dog brings in that can be damaging to your carpet. Try keeping an old towel handy near your entrance for wiping dirty paws after a walk. Regular baths will also help to reduce tracked in dirt and debris.
