Dogs are man’s best friend, there is no doubt about that. They are devoted, loyal, and will take a bullet for us (maybe inadvertently as they protect us) if they have to. There truly are no words to describe dogs and their human companions.
That being said, our “fur babies” are just that — piles of fur that gets everywhere, from the couch and the beds to our clothes and the floors. They shed, and then they shed some more. In addition, dogs have to go outside to use the restroom. Well, if it’s rainy out, they can track in mud and water. This can get all over our floors and our beds if our dogs sleep with us. So how do you keep your house clean when you have dogs?

TIPS TO KEEP YOUR HOUSE CLEAN WITH DOGS
Keep Your Dogs Clean
One of the best ways to keep your house clean with dogs is to keep your dogs clean. This means give them a bath regularly, and anytime they decide they need a mud bath. Also, if you have a dog with jowls (think Boxer or Mastiff), it’s important to wipe their mouths after they eat or drink. Otherwise, your floors and walls will be decorated with dried slob, which is a pain to wipe down. If you don’t have time to give your dog a bath, wipe their paws down when they come in the door after a rainy or snowy day. This will keep the dirt down in your home, and we all know wet mud is easier to clean than dried mud.
Invest in Throw Rugs by the Doors
Another great way to keep your house clean with dogs is to have throw rugs by the doors that they go in and out of. This is great for when you don’t have time to wipe your dog’s paws, or when you forget. Best Clean Ever in Raleigh recommends that you make sure these rugs are easy to wash so that you can easily throw them in the washing machine when needed.
Invest in Easy-to-Clean Furniture
Trust us when we say that investing in furniture that is easy to wipe down, even if you have a dog that is not allowed on the furniture, will be a life saver. Dogs inherently want to be with their owners. Thus, when you are watching TV on the couch, your dog will come over. They will want to be petted, so they will lean over and rub against your couch. They may drool on it, especially if they are panting. Thus, Best Clean Ever in Raleigh recommends that you invest in leather for easy cleaning and for a cleaner house overall.
Clean Up Messes Right Away
Dogs are animals, and like humans, they can get sick, and when they do, they can’t exactly run to the toilet. Thus, when you notice your dog has made a mess, clean it up right away, and grab your stain remover. The longer it sits, the more likely it will leave a permanent stain. This same advice applies to puppy-training. When your puppy makes a mess, clean it up right away. This will help to keep down pet odors as well.
Encourage Your Dog to Lie on Their Dog Bed
The more you can contain your dog, the cleaner your house will be — contain meaning control. If you can train your dog to lie on their dog bed (and provide a dog bed in the rooms your dog most frequents, such as your bedroom and the living room), they will leave their hair and dirt in one spot instead of on every square inch of your floors and furniture. This will make cleanup easy; simply wash the bed, and it will keep your house a lot cleaner.
