Those who have been living in rented spaces know that owning a pet can be difficult. While landlords won’t allow you to keep a pet, you get rid of such restrictions when you own the space. However, if you are moving to a new home and planning to adopt a pet, here’s how you can ensure the best space for both.

  • Go for Pet-preferred Materials: How would you feel when your pet damages your new sofa and you can’t do much to get its shine back? That’s why you should pick materials that can withstand pet paws and activities. Low-pile carpets make removing the fur and pet stains easy. Moreover, leather requires minimal effort for cleaning. Or you can go for washable covers.
  • Prefer Washable Variants: And it’s not only the sofa covers that should be washable. You need to consider washable options for everything else that the pet can use like the dog bed and food bowl. Having washable items will prevent you from spending much on buying new items every time the pet damages them.
  • Buy Them Toys: Do you think owning a pet means your sofas and other furniture will be scratched and damaged always? Well! It can be. And you can prevent it by buying the little friend some more little friends (furry toys). Different pets love different toys and with those, they will stop using paws on your sofas.

Create a Dedicated Pet Room

The best way to make the pet feel valued and responsible is by creating a dedicated area. You can talk to a house builder in Cannon Hill to plan the best pet area in your home with a door, hard floor, lighting, and everything the little one would need.
