Easily-cleaned flooring

To adapt your home for a pet (meaning dogs and cats), you should start from the flooring. The thing with dogs and cats is that they lose a lot of hair and if you do not choose the right flooring, you will have a lot of inconveniences with the thrown-away hairs. It is clear that parquet is not the most pet-friendly flooring material in the world. The spaces between the tiles are perfect cracks for hairs and other stuff that you definitely to not want to harden inside your floor.

Laminate flooring, on the other hand, is a perfect solution, since there is no room between these tiles, and they function as an integrated area. This type of flooring is also great in terms of your pet’s corner, since you will be able only to lift the mat or cloths that make that corner and clean the laminate part under them. When it comes to real dog beds, many of them are offered on the market, but Fuzzyard Dog Beds ensure complete joy and comfort for your dog.

No soft covers

Having a pet means saying goodbye to any kind of velvet furniture you might have. Cats’ and dogs’ paws are a great destroyer of anything soft, fluffy and comfortable. Apart from pawing through such furniture items, animals also like gnawing at them for hours. Dig this picture: you are coming home from work and your beloved pet is chewing the several hundred dollars worth velvet sofa cover, looking calmly through the window. Simply, pets and soft furniture covers are mutually exclusive. Rather go for some pet-friendly covers and furniture that will be uninteresting for them and hard to chew.

Pet cleaning as a must-do

You can clean your home until your drop dead, but if you do not do the same with your pet, the final result in the overall hygienic picture of your home will not be satisfying. The pet’s hygiene is closely related to the hygiene of the whole home. That is why you should wash your dog or cat at least once a week. Also, you should take them for regular hair trims to reduce the amount of hair they leave behind. In addition to all that, you should always keep an eye on their fur to check if there are any guests in form of fleas. If you notice fleas, you have to react at once and treat them with anti-flea remedies.

Making your home and your pet connected and functioning in a relaxed way is a process and it demands time and patience. But when you manage that, your pet will not want to leave the home anymore. That will be the greatest award for you and it will mean that all the effort has paid off.
