10 Easy Tips for Cleaning Up After Your Dog
Cleaning Confidential


  • 1. Store everything you need for outings– leash, pick-up bags, paw wipes — near the door. Reuse plastic shopping bags or plastic bags your newspapers come in; store them in an empty tissue box for one-at-a-time dispensing.
  • 2. Make it easier to hook up for walks by attaching a large carabiner to the  clip on your dog’s leash.
  • 3. Divvy up food into smaller, sealable containers for storage, this decreases mess and pests!
  • 4. Assign baskets or bins into which you can quickly toss those well-chewed balls, bones and other assorted playthings.
  • 5. To keep food and water bowls from sliding, place them on a rubber-backed mat or piece of rubberized mesh.
  • 6. Use a self-refilling water bowl to cut down on your trips to the sink.
  • 7. Toss a few handfuls of cat litter into your garbage bin to neutralize odors from full pick-up bags.
  • 8.  Position the dog bed away from your home’s main traffic flow and cover it with an easily removable “doggy duvet” that you wash regularly.
  • 9. Create a file folder or binder dedicated to your dog’s paperwork: vet visits, vaccination records, medication lists, insurance info, license receipts, microchip code number.
  • 10. Scan all these important records– plus photos of your dog — and store them on your PDA or a small flash drive so that you can have this info at hand while traveling.
