Dogs bring color to our boring lives. Their unconditional love for us, their unwavering joy, and the happiness our furry friends bring to us makes having them worth our time and money. But let's face it, owning one isn't cheap. If there's a way to make dog parenting tasks more rewarding and at the same time lighter on our expenses wouldn't it be more fun? The good news is, there is!
Here we have 7 genius life hacks for dog owners:
When your dog becomes ill, it's hard to get them to swallow the medicine. Try this trick: disguise the medicine as foods. You can make your own pill pocket by inserting the medication in a cooked pasta, or try sticking the pill in the middle of a sausage.
The list of possible pill pockets are endless. However, make sure that the food is either crunchy, hard, or anything that they won't easily detect that a medicine is hiding under those tasty treats.
Window Squeegee for Pet Hair
If you hate using tape, pet brush, and other hacks to get rid of pet hair in your carpet, sofas and car seats this hack will easily remove pet hairs in areas where the material is fabric.
Removing Pet Hair In Laundry
Place your clothes in a dryer then set it at a no-heat cycle for ten minutes. Afterwards shake out the clothing then throw it in a washer. This time, add a cup of vinegar. The vinegar will help loosen the fabric and remove the pet hair. Take it out of the laundry and put it again in the dryer. Use dryer balls to release the pet hair.
Dogs have heightened sense of smell; therefore, if they have peed in the carpet and you did not clean it properly, they'll pee in the same area where they usually do.
To get rid of the smell of lingering urine, you can sprinkle liberal amounts of baking soda onto the damp carpet and leave it there for a few minutes. After that,scrub the area with a mixture of 3% hydrogen peroxide and two teaspoons of mild liquid detergent with a bristle brush. Allow the area to dry before vacuuming.
If you find it hard to brush your pet's teeth you can put a small amount of your pet's toothpaste onto his favorite bone or chew ropes.
Freshen Breath with Parsley
That bad odor coming from their mouth is a sign that there are foods stuck in their teeth and it is particularly common when they eat wet food. Dry dog foods won't have this problem. But if you don't feel the need to change to their diet, sprinkle some parsley leaves on top of their food to keep their breath fresh.
Dogs can choke at any time and you need to be prepared in emergency situations. We recommend that you know the basics of CPR. Your knowledge of CPR can save the life of your dog and even other's dogs.
