How to Make Your Home Pet Friendly

Pet owners will do anything for their four-legged furry friend. Keeping your pet happy and healthy is the top priority for many people. More and more people are beginning to see their pet as a family member. Funny enough, there are even doggie daycares and pampering salons. This sounds like doggie heaven, but a dog’s best place to be is by your side in your home. That is why most people accommodate their homes for their pets – this is especially true if you refuse to put your dog in the backyard with some animal sheds. That said, have a look down below at a few tips on making your home perfect for your furry family member. 

Pet Friendly Furniture

Every animal goes through its shedding phase. This can be a mess, but if you are a true lover of animals, sweeping the floor once or twice a day won’t bother you too much. It becomes a problem when you sit on the couch and have the opportunity to wrap yourself up into a blanket made of doggy or cat fur or when you get a stinky odor from stains. Invest in stain-resistant fabric and stay away from velvet, silk, and tweed. Try getting some sofas that are made from synthetic microfibre, leather, or outdoor materials; it is scratch, stain, and hair resistant. When having a primarily animal family, it is crucial to choose the correct color of the furniture; for example, it would not be wise to have a white sofa if you have pets around the house. 

Trash Cans With Lids

When you come home after a long day of work, it isn’t great to walk into your home with all the trash spread around the house. If your dog tends to get into the trash, consider trading your short wastebasket with a tall trash can with lids. But this will not stop your Great Dane from knocking the trash can over. Place your dustbin in a closed-off site or behind a kitchen cabinet. You can rest assured knowing the trash can will be something you can tick off your list of frustration when you come home. 

Safe Entry Ways 

When you are not around, you want your furry friends to be safe and the house hazard-free. Think about installing screens in your windows for when you leave them open – hundreds of cats and dogs have fallen victim to high-rise syndrome; this is when they fall out of windows of high-rise buildings and two-story homes. Also, if you have sliding glass pet door inserts, you won’t have to worry about the dog making a mess in the living room or waking you up at 2 am to do a number two. 

There are much more safety precautions you can implement into your home to make it a special place for your pets. If your doggie’s life is happy and safe, your life will be much easier because having a dog or a cat is just as challenging as a little toddler running around the house.
