Creating a Dog Friendly Home

Puzzled over how to make man and beast coexist in one space? Follow there tips and be assured that the barking will stop – from both sides. For easy cleaning up after your pet, choose unglazed ceramic tiles for your flooring. Best of all, your furry friends will have a cool place to nap on. Stay away from silk that can snag, and especially velvet, which traps doggy hair. Take inspiration from your pet when choosing the colors for your home. This might seem a bit extreme, but you' be happy to not notice the hair your pet leaves behind. Carpets are the worst enemies of any homeowner with pets. They absorb odor and trap pet hair. If you must have a rug, fore go the expensive Persian and use sea grass or sisal area rug instead. Avoid using flat paint on walls. Opt for gloss or semi gloss paint instead, which can be easily wiped clean. Hide fragile items. Breakable accessories and dogs don't mix. If you can help but have fragile items, store them out of pet's way in china cabinets with glass doors, so the're still on display. Focus instead on paintings and prints that can be hung on the wall.
