Keeping dog accessories clean

I cannot fail to mention that taking care of the pooch’s accessories also means keeping them clean and full of hygiene. This is very important, otherwise, it will be a great place for bacteria and microbes to live in.

Taking care of the cleanliness of dog accessories is extremely important in the case of dogs with allergies. If your dog belongs to this group, remember that his accessories should be kept clean and tidy. If you want to learn more about dog allergies and how to deal with them, please refer to the post HERE.

So, taking care of the hygienic condition of your dog’s accessories is also taking care of his health. Dogs can sometimes be more sensitive than we think. All kinds of bacterial infections can affect any quadruped, even those who seem to be very healthy and strong on a daily basis.

This way you take care of the dog accessories

Knowing how important it is to take care of your pet’s accessories, you certainly want to know how you can do it best. That’s why I have some useful tips for you.

– washing and cleaning of dog accessories

Cleaning your dog accessories may not be as easy as you think. Why? Because not always things you buy can be washed in a washing machine. When making a purchase decision, pay attention to whether you need to wash the item by hand only.

For me, it is a big inconvenience. I like to keep my dog’s accessories clean at all times. That is why I choose those products that can be washed in the washing machine, like the lairs by Bow&Bone Republic. Improper cleaning, not following the manufacturer’s recommendations, may damage the dog’s accessories.

The selection of appropriate washing products also plays an important role. More on how to wash dog accessories is available in the post HERE.

– storage of dog accessories

The condition of your dogs’ accessories is also influenced by how you store them when not in use. Therefore, as soon as I noticed that my pooch had accumulated quite a large collection of toys, I bought a basket in which they are now stored.

This makes it easier for me to keep my dog belongings in order. In addition, toys are no longer exposed to damage by lying in random places in the house, where someone could accidentally tear them.

I also pay attention to how I put my dog’s harness away after a walk. First of all, if you have been caught in the rain while you are going out, never leave your wet harness and leash rolled up. After returning home, be sure to lay them out to dry completely.

Keep the harness and leash in such a place that they are not crushed or unnaturally curled. Depending on what material they are made of, they may lose their original shape.

– choosing right accessories for your dog

No dog accessory will be able to fulfil its function well if it is not suited to the needs of your dog. For example, some products are made with puppies in mind. Therefore, they may not be suitable for older dogs. For example, the leash may not be strong enough to cope with the strength of an adult dog and may break off.

When choosing a leash for your dog, consider not only its size but also its weight. The element that can be damaged is, among others, a carabiner with which we attach the leash to a harness or collar. If it is made of poor-quality material, and in addition, your pooch has a lot of strength, when pulled more strongly by the quadruped, it may break.

Dog accessories should match the character of your dog. If you know that your dog chews his things, then you should only choose products that are made of very strong and solid materials.

– regular check of dog accessories condition

When caring for dog accessories, as well as in other areas of our lives, regularity is the key. If you want to keep your dog’s things in good condition for as long as possible, try to check their condition regularly.

It is much easier to repair slight damage, such as a small tear, than to recover a really big tear later. Therefore, whenever I notice that one of my pooch’s accessories is damaged, I try to fix it as soon as possible.

The situation is similar in the case of all kinds of dirt. I think you will certainly admit that it is much easier to remove the stain before it dries and bites into the fabric.

Moreover, if your dog is allergic, then you need to pay special attention to the detergents you use. Those with a very mild formula may not be able to deal with the removal of severe stains.

Say goodbye to damaged dog accessories

Your concern for your dog’s accessories to be well-groomed, however, will not prevent them from undergoing a natural process of wear and tear. The things of our pets will lose their shine and original properties over time. This is perfectly normal and it does not mean that you have cared too little for them.

Dog accessories wear out. If you notice that your dog’s harness or lair is clearly in very poor condition, don’t hesitate to throw it away and replace it with a new one. I am sure that thanks to the fact that you cared for them properly, your pooch could enjoy them long enough.

This rule must be followed carefully especially with your dog’s toys. A damaged toy may pose a threat to your pet’s health. I’m sure you don’t want to risk an accident even in the slightest.

Well cared for your dog accessories

For me as a visual learner, the appearance of my dog’s accessories matters a lot. I attach great importance to their choice when buying. Therefore, I want my pooch to be able to enjoy them as long as possible.

The key to caring for your dog’s accessories is proper cleaning and storage. It is also worth checking their condition regularly, as well as whether they are already too small for your doggie.
