If you have carpet or large rugs you can't machine wash, invest in a carpet shampooer and bioenzymatic liquid laundry detergent (saves on expensive, pet unfriendly chemicals). We lived in a rental that had 'brown' carpet when we moved in. Our two German Shepherds were inside a lot, but when we moved out the carpet was beige.

Bought a quite pricey new floor rug. Discovered very soon that large dogs claws have pulled loops out of said rug. I was cranky about this initially but very soon decided that Betty's value to me far outweighs the pristine appearance of rug. So my smooth pile rug now has scattered shag pile. Just think of it as the latest innovation in flooring!
