Tips to keep your home clear of dog hair
July 31, 2012
When you've made the decision to adopt a dog from a New York animal shelter, you may be alarmed by the amount of stray hair that your canine can produce. Even with the shaggiest of dogs, there are ways that you can keep the excess fur in check.
Regular brushing is a must, no matter what type of breed your new companion happens to be. DogChannel.com suggests daily brushing to ensure that the vast majority of your dog's hair will end up on the brush instead of your furniture.
Maintaining a standard of cleanliness around your home is also vital, so vacuum every few days to remove fur from your carpets, and use a damp mop to get rid of hair on hardwood surfaces.
Cleaning your dog's bedding and other favorite spots can be a major pain, so K9 Magazine suggests putting down a washable towel or bed sheet over your canine's sleeping area. Then you can throw everything into the washing machine without having to meticulously clean your pet's bed from top to bottom. These quick and easy changes could help out exponentially to keep your home clean and inviting.
