Because of the Coronavirus pandemic we are taking more precautions in order to stay safe, and that-of course-includes our dogs and home. These are the things I’d recommend you do to keep your dogs clean:
- Brush your dog’s hair (long and short-haired dogs) after a walk. Always!
- Wipe off your dog’s paws (get baby wipes from the Dollar Store) and check her pads for any foreign object in them
- Change her bedding frequently (every couple of days or daily)
- Brush her teeth before going to bed
When it comes to our house, I dust, vacuum, and sweep often because as you pet parents well know, our doggies shed a lot. What about yours truly? I wash my hands constantly and I carry hand wipes with me always. Keeping our dogs clean does not require a lot of money or time so let’s get in the habit of doing so in order to keep us all safe. Take care.

Great advice. I carry wipes with me on our walks despite not allowing anyone to pet the dogs. Luckily mine don’t shed per se but clean bedding is a good idea anyway. Stay safe, stay strong and keep smiling.
On my blog, I’ve just posted about the value of in-home services in the time of Covid-19. https://doggymom.com/2020/05/15/in-a-world-with-covid-19-an-in-home-pet-service-offers-peace-of-mind/
The USA still has a way to go before you are truly in control of the virus; consider in-home services when caring for your dogs.
