Over half of all homes have pets living in them, but animals are usually an afterthought when it comes to home improvement. It is important to consider your pet’s particular needs when designing your home in order to keep them safe and happy! Read here to find four ways you can make your home more pet friendly.
Revamp Your Doors
One way you can improve your home design for your pets is by revamping your doors. By implementing an automatic sliding door system in your home, you can give your pets the freedom of going in and out as they please while ensuring your property is secured even if you are not home.
With Autoslide's Pet Tag System, you simply attach the tag to your dog’s collar, and it will open and close the door automatically as they approach. You can control the system on an app and lock the door when needed. Automatic sliding doors are not only a great option for pets, they also provide convenience, security and accessibility for you and your family as well.
We all love to spoil our dogs and surprise them with new toys. However, it is easy to let your living space fill up with your pet’s toys and supplies without even noticing. In order to declutter your space, plus make room for you and your pet, it is important to keep their toys in a designated area. Whether it’s a basket or a box, store all toys and supplies in the area where you usually play with your pet. This way, they are easily accessible and out of the way. It’s important to sort through and organize your pets supplies regularly, and toss what is broken or beyond repair to keep your space clean and organized.
Put Away Breakables
It is important to put away anything that could be considered a “toy,” when bringing a pet into your home. Items like stuffed animals, kids’ toys, and anything with small or fragile pieces can easily be mistaken as a toy by your pet. In order to avoid your pet playing with something that is not theirs, simply replace it with their toy and put what they grabbed away. You may also want to remove any home décor that could easily be broken or knocked into while training. Even the cutest puppies may have accidents. Your pet will eventually learn their boundaries and you will be able to bring the breakable items back out.
Give Them a Special Spot
It is important to set designated spaces for your pet to help them with their routine and keep your house clean. One important space is where your pet can find their food and water. By having a home design with a designated spot, you are allowing them to get into a routine and keep their mess to a confined area. It is also important to give your pet a comfy and cozy place to sleep. Give your pet a bed for them to relax, unwind and recharge after a busy day of playing. This will keep them from going on furniture and will provide them with a space of their own.
Keep these tips in mind and your pet will thank you for it!
