Maintaining cleanness when you have a pet dog

March 24th, 2014 Category: Office Cleaning

Research has shown that some 90 per cent of people who own pets consider their animal to be a part of their family. 

The research from last year also discovered that 16 per cent of people who own dogs had listed their pet in the Census of 2011. Some even filled in the form saying their dog was a son! 

But despite dogs being an incredibly popular pet, they can sometimes cause a little bit of messiness.  

This can be the case, for example, if they get muddy when they go walking with their owners. 

In order to prevent mud getting into the house – and onto things like furniture – it could be a good idea to give paws a clean before your pet gets inside. This can be done with a damp towel. 

Another possible mess associated with dogs is fur shedding. Shed fur can create mess on floors and on furniture, which later needs to be cleared. 

But you might not need to deal with quite so much of this if you give your pet a brush.

This is something that it's wise to do on a regular basis and techniques will vary from breed to breed. It's best to seek expert advice if you're unsure about how to brush your pet. 

You'll also want to ensure that your dog isn't causing mess to the local area, of course. 

It's not only unacceptable to leave dog mess on the streets, it could lead to a fine. 

So it's always best to go out walking with your dog armed with some appropriate bags to scoop the waste in. 

Then put the bag in one of the appropriate dog waste bins – or take it home to dispose of. But whatever you do, don't leave it on the street!
