It’s finally spring! So as we put out our patio furniture and clean out the garage, let’s not forget about our four-legged friends. Whether it’s cleaning up their hair or prepping them to spend more time outside, there are several things you can do to make it easier on you and your pup.
First, let’s get your dog cleaned up. A quick outside bath will have your dog smelling fresh and won’t leave a mess indoors. Be cautious of dry skin by not bathing them too long or too often. Brushing out their coat first will also help. Wiping him or her down with a towel sprayed with half apple cider vinegar and half water, followed by sprinkling baking soda on their body will remove any odor. After brushing, you’re dog will be smelling great!
Next up is your home. You will want to use rubber gloves to remove hair from furniture and other fabrics. Sweeping areas with a slightly damp glove will help ball up hair and make it easier to pick up. It’s also a good idea to wash any toys they use often. Depending on the make, either throw the toys in the washer or wash them by hand. Finally, neutralizing all odors from carpets will keep your dog from going the bathroom inside. You can use online resources or ask your vet if you want specific steps on how to do so.
In our opinion, spring cleaning isn’t so bad with a clean dog by your side. We hope they enjoy baths!
