How to make a corner for a dog
The dog in the house is, of course, good, but before you take this crucial step, you need to solve a number of issues related to feeding, grooming, and, of course, creating the most comfortable conditions for your four-legged friend. It is at the last moment that we want to stay in this article.
Keeping dogs in country houses and spacious apartments has become very fashionable. In this case, few people think about the consequences of such a decision. Puppy creature is very playful and naughty. He will surely tear or scratch something. Walls, parquet floors and curtains can suffer, and the expensive carpet will be filled with dog hair and will smell foul. All this can be avoided if from the very beginning to teach the puppy to order, defining a permanent place for him. He should know which plate to eat and which one to drink, which rooms you can go to, and which you should not. All these issues need to be resolved without fail. Otherwise, instead of a reliable friend and guard, you will get a lot of worries and troubles.
Start with a corner equipment for your pet. It should be a spacious room with an inexpensive finish. Lay on the floor resistant to abrasion laminate or batten. Tile and linoleum are not suitable for this, the tile is cold, and the linoleum puppy will surely tear it into small pieces. At first, your pet can meet natural needs right on the floor. If it is covered with linoleum, the urine will just flow under it, and you will have to change the flooring.
Discard wall murals. For them, dogs have a bias. They will tear them up. The artificial stone, which changes color when ingested by dog excrements, will not work either.
If, after all, you decide to use wallpaper, then glue them on the upper part of the wall, and on the lower put decorative plaster. It will turn out both reliably, and beautifully.
Your dog is back from a walk. If you do not wash her paws, then all the dirt on them will remain on the carpet. Together with the wool, it all looks just disgusting, and makes the owner of the house crazy. Therefore, immediately discuss this issue with the household. The one who takes the dog for a walk, he washes her paws and vacuums the room.
Where to wash her paws, you also need to decide in advance. In the bathroom, this is not very hygienic. Although, if the floor has a sewer drain, then you can wash them there. Otherwise, prepare a basin with warm water and a dry rag in advance in the corridor.
No matter how careful your dog is, you will have to bathe it quite often. Doing this in a common bath is not recommended due to hygiene conditions. This is where you will need a shower room with a drain in the floor. If it is not there, you will have to purchase a large basin and bathe the dog in the bathroom. A bit uncomfortable, but nothing to do.
As for textiles, all materials that are ripping and absorbing dust should be replaced with synthetic ones and impregnated with a dirt-repellent compound. Carpets are generally worth giving up. In a dog corner this is an extra item.
What one cannot agree with is the fact that the pet is allowed to climb onto the sofa where people are sitting, or even to their masters’ bed. This is not good from a hygienic point of view, but also from a moral one. The animal must have its own sleeping place, which is equipped in his room. The main thing that he was comfortable and calm in it. Well, about the design you can fantasize as you like. Here you, as they say, and cards in hand. You can use the chair, baby beds with sliding shelves, but you never know what! Even a mat that creeps in a convenient place will do.
Some people buy dog houses and cribs in specialized stores. Everyone goes crazy in their own way. If you have money, you can do it, although, in our opinion, this is all unnecessary, and a dog may simply not appreciate such a gift. And all because it is much more convenient for her to sleep on the rug by the bed of her master, or even in the hallway. If you force it into a house, then protest is inevitable. The dog will tear him to shreds.
Here, perhaps, and all the recommendations about the equipment space for your pet. If you are ready for such sacrifices, then go ahead, and may good luck be with you!
