One of the things I do to relax is to look at dog and cat videos on the internet. These can be needy, standoffish, friendly, loving, caring, anxious, annoying, loyal… If you’re a pet parent, then you probably have your own stories about life with your dog or cat.

I am sure you have made your own arrangements how to make sure your fur babies are fed and are able to take care of themselves when you go out for the day.

We made a video for you just because. Here’s a single mommy who lives alone and has a loyal friend to welcome her home, rain or shine.

How To Make a Pet Friendly Home

You don’t have to let your home go to the dogs if you have pets at home. I am sure you know that you have to clean your home every single day. A vacuum cleaner is your friend, especially if your pet is shedding. In fact, get yourself a robot vacuum to keep your home free from the usual dust and dirt, and most of all pet hair!

What kind of materials should you choose for your home?

1. Choose hard floors and skip the carpet.

The best kind of floor to have if you have pets are ceramic tiles because they are usually stain resistant and easy to clean.

But if you have an interior concrete floor, don’t worry. Protect it with Epoxy paint, which is very durable, and also solvent-, chemical-, and stain-resistant. Read more about it by clicking on this link.

If you have a wooden floor, you can protect it by coating it or staining it. There are Boysen paint systems that will help you get into a worry-free mode as your dog or cat gets the run of the place. Read about the Boysen way of handling wooden floors.

Product Highlight: Hudson Timbercoat

Just because you have pets that go clickety-clack over your wooden floors, it doesn’t mean you can’t have shiny wooden floors that you can be proud of. Let Hudson Timbercoat come to the rescue.

2. Match your wall color to the color of your pet’s fur.

You don’t really have to do this. I put it here just in case you are the type to curate your surroundings. The good thing about it is that a pet’s fur would be a neutral color. It would then be easy to match the hue or choose a complementary color.

If you will be (re)painting your walls, choose one of these two Boysen paints—Virtuoso Silk Touch or Healthy Home. Both are easy to clean, low-odor, and have antibacterial properties.

There are many other ways to make your home pet friendly, like using stain-resistant fabrics on your sofa, washing your bed sheets often, bathing and grooming your pet regularly, and getting him treats and toys. But I will leave that to you because you know your fur baby better.
