Keep a Lint Roller With You
Unless you’re lucky enough to have a dog that doesn’t shed, dog hair is probably a permanent part of your wardrobe. To keep your outfit looking crisp, keep a mini lint roller in your car or even in your purse, so you can clean up your clothes on a moment’s notice.
Attach a Carabiner
Just in case you have to tie your dog to a tree or a pole for a quick moment, keep a carabiner on their leash. This will allow you to comfortably and securely keep your pooch in place without having to make a hasty knot.
For a quick cool-down treat after playing in the hot weather, fed your dog this treat: chicken broth and apple ice cubes. Sounds a little gross to us, but your pooch is going to love lapping at these cool snacks.
Lazy Play Time
Busy with work but got a pooch that wants to play? Invest in one of those toys with a looped rope on one side and a ball on the other. Hook the loop on your foot and let your dog play with the other end while you work.
Clean Your Couch
Your clothes aren’t the only thing that are bound to get covered in dog hair, your furniture is going to get a coat of fur, too. For a quick clean, wet a rubber glove and wipe down the couch. You’ll be amazed how easily the hair comes off the upholstery!
Clean the Rug
Similarly, use a moist squeegee to wipe down the rug (just like you would the windshield of your car) and watch the hair come right off your floor!
Make Shampoo Last
Dog shampoo can get expensive, so to make it last for as long as possible, fill a water bottle with only a quarter of the shampoo. Fill the rest of the bottle with water and shake to get a diluted version. This will last you forever and be gentler on your pup!
Do Your Research
It’s always good to read up on ways to protect your dog, as weird as some of it may seem. For example, learn how to give your dog the Heimlich and how to perform CPR on your pooch. You never know when you might need these skills.
