We have been selected to serve as a Petco Ambassador through the Team BarkWorld Influencer Program! We could not be more excited for this opportunity! It’s one more way we can connect with the #Pawdience and join another community of Pet People! As you saw in our video today, Petco was kind enough to send us a few items to help us talk about the importance of Spring Cleaning your pets favorite things!
The first thing we want to talk about is cleaning your pets beds. Most dog beds will have cleaning instructions written out on the tags. We tend to wash our dog beds about once per month. When we wash them, we also check them for damage. You want to look for popped seems, stuffing coming out, and wear and tear! If there is any damage to your dogs bed, you should probably go ahead and replace it.
The next thing we want to talk about is the importance of cleaning your pets bowls! This is something that many pet owners forget to do. You should be washing food bowls and water bowls everyday. Bacteria can grow very quickly in stale water, and old food can attract bugs and also grow bacteria. I personally rinse our dogs dishes everyday, and give them a full scrub down wash about once per week. If your bowls are dishwasher safe, you can just put them in the dishwasher once a week for that extra clean! It’s not just healthy for your dog, but healthy for your home environment as well!
Petco sent us a few Bowl Mates, and a Bowl Mates Mat! The bowls are dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning them even easier! There are two options for the bowl bases, stainless steel, or glass inserts. The bowl bases are non-slip so your dog can’t push them around. Pair them up with a bowl mate place mat and you are good to go! If your dog spills their food or water, it will land on the mat instead of all over your floor! If you are interested in ordering any of the Bowl Mates click here: http://goo.gl/VUpwSL
Another important thing to do during your Spring cleaning is cleaning up, and going through all of your dogs toys. Be sure to check them for damage, rips, popped seams, and dirt. We try to do this once a month. We also clean out the toy bin as well. When those dirty toys get put back into the bin, the dirt will collect at the bottom, so be sure to wash out your bin!
Do you have a spring cleaning routine when it comes to your pets supplies? Let us know in the comments! We would love to hear your tips and tricks as well! Don’t forget to enter to win a Petco Giftcard!
