pet protection-- help!

I inherited my husband's messy dog who is ruining my suggestions to keep it clean?  I can't get rid of the dog ( or the DH!)

Re: pet protection-- help!

  • It would help to have some more details - what do you mean "messy"?  Is the dog tracking dirt/mud on his paws?  Is he drooling on the couch?  Is he eating on the couch and leaving crumbs? 

    In general, there are a few options for keeping the couch (and other furniture) clean: (1) don't allow the dog on the couch (plenty of people ban their pets from some/all furniture); (2) cover the couch with a slip cover, sheet, blanket, whatever so that you can just wash that and can take it off when company comes over; (3) allow the dog on the couch and clean up after him; (4) if the dog is actually dirty, you can wipe his paws and/or bathe him to make sure he doesn't track stuff onto the couch.  Like I said, if you give some more details, it might be easier to offer specific suggestions. 

  • I vacuum the sofa a few times a week, wipe it with a wet cloth, and keep is covered with blankets for the dogs.  Oh and we furminate them pretty regularly.
