Digging This Style: Spring Cleaning

Happy Spring!  While I know that some people LOVE spring cleaning, I’m not one of them.  But I do appreciate a clean house, so I am sharing some tips to make living with dogs less messy.   

spring cleaning tips for dog lovers

Stop Dirt At The Door

Wipe those paws and feet.  A coir mat is mildew resistant and can easily be vacuumed.  

Wear boots outside and leave them at the door. Dog booties not only stop muddy paw prints but can help if your dog suffers from seasonal allergies.


Control Pet Hair

Brush and/or groom your dog regularly to prevent excessive shedding (or at least collect it in the brush.) 

Use a pretty throw or upholstery cover to protect furniture.  When choosing a throw, look for one that is tightly woven to minimize the chance of being snagged.

Although it isn’t particularly difficult to run a vacuum cleaner, I don’t know many people who enjoy it.   I know a lot of pet lovers who love their bObsweep, and it seems like most pets do too.


Clear the Clutter

An apron with a big pocket gives you a temporary place to stash the dog toys that you find all over the house.   

Give your dog’s toys a home, you’ll be happier if you choose something you love.  Make your life even easier by teaching your dog to put away his own toys.  

A cute trinket tray is a fun way to keep track of small items and show your personality.


Freshen Up Your Decor

Adding greenery or a bouquet of flowers is an easy way to brighten up a room.  Just be sure that the plants aren’t toxic to dogs (or cats.)

Add fun throw pillows or pet portraits.

Show your pet pride with an outdoor flag.

Do you have any tips for spring cleaning with pets?




I’m always looking for spring cleaning tips, especially as a dog owner! I’ve always thought it would be fun to teach my dog how to put away her toys, but she doesn’t actually play with toys! I love buying them, so I have a box of toys and most of them are in perfect condition.

I may have to get that door mat….so cute. Love the boots too:)

I love this! What a great sponsored post and a great way to do spring cleaning. I have little doggy touches in the house but I try not to go overboard. That’s the hardest part for me.

    Beth says:

    That is the tough part! There are so many cute dog decor items now!

Kelly says:

Great list of products! I am actually looking to find a toy box that’s stylish for Edie’s toys – now if I can just get her to put them in toy box!

I’ve put off spring cleaning but really need to get on it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Spring Cleaning !! Oy Vey – will be doing mine over spring break when I do not have to teach and then it is going to be major. Great list of products thank you

These are some really great tips. Clear the clutter really needs to be more on my list. I can use a little help.

Love the pet hair tips. from Wayfair Homemakers

These are all great products! My faves are the welcome mat & the apron, so cute & useful too!
Love & biscuits,. Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

These are some great tips and products! We have a Shiba Inu that sheds a ton – that vacuum seems perfect!

I would love a robot vacuum. Mr. N doesn’t shed really but he tracks his fair share of dirt into the house!

What great tips and products! I do not love spring cleaning, but I am determined to try to do it this year! I hate vacuuming too. We have a robotic one but it doesn’t work the greatest…I’d like to try a newer model.
Funny you mentioned the flowers, I just got a bouquet this week! Spring is slow to arrive here and I really needed the cheering up.
I’m so glad you were able to use our post…thank you! It also reminds me that I don’t make Luke pick up his toys often enough, I need to keep him in practice! 🙂

    The robotic one I have isn’t very good, but it seems like everyone loves their bObsweep.
