Having a cute dog is very relaxing right? But you have to accept the entire package with your pet dog and one of the things you have to handle is how to handle your pets’ hair. Dog hair varies tremendously in the way it adheres to other household fabrics. Long hair can be easier to remove than the short hair by Dobermans, Bull Terriers and other short haired dogs, which can penetrate through the fabric. This can be a problem when you bring your dog inside your car with upholstered seats. You may found listed useful:
- Stroking furniture and clothing with a damp rubber gloves on your hand.
- Sticky tape wrapped around the fingers stroked over the fabric pile. Special sticky rollers are available, which work in the same way.
- Brushing with a damp nail brush or wiping across the fabric with a damp cloth.
All these methods roll the hairs together and make them easier to remove. Pets’ hair contain allergens, so if your family members suffer from allergies, keep your pet off the furniture and bedding. From the time you obtain your pet dog, you must set house rules and you must be consistent with your rules to make an impression to your dog that you are the pack leader that’s why he must obey.
Special attachments for vacuum cleaners are available from pet shops, which is very helpful in removing pets’ hair. It is also very sensible if you have a turbo nozzle vacuum cleaner to prevent hair building up on the carpet and upholstery. A vacuum cleaner with high efficiency particulate air retains microscopic particles such as house mites, mange mites and bacteria which can otherwise escape back to your household.
How to handle pets’ hair again? In this case prevention is better than cure. You can prevent this by grooming your dog regularly. If a lot of hair is being shed, have the dog checked for possible under-lying skin disease and discuss your dog’s diet with a veterinarian to ensure that it is getting sufficient amount of B vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids that helps promote healthy hair to prevent shedding.
