Ideally, the dog will have access to a small yard or safe balcony outside for going to the toilet. If not, many dogs can be trained to toilet on absorbent pee pads or pet toilets. Whichever dog breed you choose, ensure you give them at least 30 minutes of exercise each day, plus regular trips outside as often as you can. If you need to leave them at home for longer than a few hours, it’s great to take them on a long morning walk so they spend most of their day sleeping.
2. Pet beds Mud, fur, dander – your cat or dog’s bed could be housing all manner of nasty surprises. You can keep them fresh and odour-free by giving them a regular vacuum. A specialist pet vacuum or one with a hypoallergenic or HEPA filter that can pick up microscopic molecules is the best tool for the job. For a more thorough clean, shake off loose pet hair and wash your pet bed by hand, or give it a run through the washing machine.If your pet bed has a removable cover, unzip it and remove the insert. You can generally wash the cover in the machine using a warm cycle, although do check the label first. And be sure to use mild detergent that won’t irritate your pet’s skin.Afterwards, run a rinse cycle on your washing machine to remove leftover hair so it doesn’t clog your machine.How to Keep Your Pets Cool and Comfortable in a Heatwave
