Pets are a huge part of the average American family’s lifestyle. They give so much love yet leave so much fur. Here are some tips from DealDash to keep the pets off of the furniture.
Many people have pets that live indoors all of the time, and these pets tend to get onto the furniture and leave fur. This is bad for the furniture and for your clothing as well. It can be tricky to break the bad habit of the pets jumping on the furniture, but it can be done. Here are some tips, tricks, and ideas from DealDash to help train Fido and Fluffy to stay off of the furniture.
Prevention is Better Than a Cure
If you haven’t gotten your pet yet, plan to spend some time when you first get them to train them to stay off of the furniture. It’s so much easier to teach them to stay off of the furniture in the beginning than it is to break them of the bad habit later on. Do yourself a favor and remember this fact for the next time you get a new pet.
Get Your Pet Their Own Place
You’re going to have a hard time keeping your pets off of the furniture if they don’t have anywhere else to go. With that said, you don’t have to buy your pet the fanciest, most expensive bed out there. A bed from the discount store will work, as well as a soft pillow or blanket. Just think, of you didn’t have a chair, couch, or bed to sit and sleep on – you would find a comfy spot for yourself, as well. Be kind to your furniture, and get your pet their own cozy spot to sleep and rest comfortably.
Confine Them to a Crate
Now, don’t keep Fido or Fluffy confined to a crate more often than you need to. However, when you aren’t around to supervise them then a crate can be a comfy and cozy little space for them to spend their time. This is an especially useful suggestion for dogs, who actually enjoy having a crate to retreat to when things get a little stressful.
Use Double-Sided Tape on Furniture
This trick is especially useful for cats – use double-sided sticky tape on any place that your cat likes to jump up on. This includes the counter tops and tables as well as the chairs and furniture. The double-sided tape is a completely safe and harmless alternative to keep your pets off of any areas that you don’t want them to lay on. The tape works great, give it a try.
