We all love our furry friends. But between walks, feeding, bathing, and play time, things can get a little chaotic. Here are some of the best simple hacks we have found that can make any dog owner's life easier.
1. Squeakers and Crinkles
If your pooch loves those crinkle and squeaker toys, here is a great tip to keep your fur baby happy while saving a few bucks. Put an empty plastic bottle in an old sock and tie the end. Instant crinkle toy for hours of fun!
If your dog craves the squeaker and demolishes toys to get to them, simply stuff these squeaky delights into old socks and, voila! Instant squeaky tug toys your dog will love.
2. Get Organized
If you have a hard time keeping all of your pet supplies organized, an inexpensive shower caddy will do the trick. You can hang it on the inside of a cabinet, in a closet, or anywhere else you'd like to hold plenty of treats, grooming supplies and more.
3. Calm Before the Storm
There are plenty of pets that get a little freaked out by storms. Chances are, the static electricity is getting to them more than the actual storm. Try rubbing a dryer sheet over your dog's fur when a storm is approaching. This can rid the static electricity that can build up in their fur, offering a more calming effect.
4. Squeegee the Hair Away
Sometimes there just isn't time to vacuum your pet's favorite spot on the sofa before company arrives. Grab a squeegee to remove those troublesome areas where your pet's hair seems to gravitate to. This also works great on carpets, stairs, draperies, and more!
5. Beat the Heat with Cool Summer Treats
Keep your furry friend happy and cool in the summer with some homemade treats. Put some low sodium chicken broth and cut apples into an ice cube tray and freeze. Your pooch will love this cool treat on a hot day!
6. Freshen Fido's Breath
It's not uncommon to experience a bit of bad breath with your pooch. Sprinkling a bit of fresh parsley on their food is a quick and inexpensive way to freshen your pup's breath.
7. Take Your Time with Meal Time
If your dog is notorious for scarfing down their meals, there is an inexpensive solution. You can place a tennis ball in the food bowl to curb binge-eating. You can also try using an old muffin tin for feedings to encourage your pooch to savor the flavor.
Partner with A Professional
Nothing is more important than your pet's health and well-being. That's why it's so important to partner with a professional for all your veterinary needs. From quality care to tips and preventative maintenance, a partnership with a professional is key.
