Because your bed and beddings will attract grime and dirt, you must choose a bed with removable fabric cover. Also, vacuum the bed often in order to remove dirt, hair, and other debris. Use a mild laundry detergent and wash the cover in cold water. In order to neutralize the odor, use a cup of baking soda. As usual, the dog hair is a serious problem. At this time of a year, it is even worst. Use rubber gloves to remove the hair from your bed, drapes and furniture. Dampen a glove and sweep the fabric. The hair will ball up and it will be easier for you to collect it.
Cleaning the collar is more severe than many pet owners believe. If you use a brush or something similar you can damage the material. So, add a dog shampoo in a bowl filled with hot water. Soak it for 25 minutes and rub it against itself, in order to remove dirt. If you want, add more dog shampoo and rub it more. Use a towel to remove excess water and hang to dry.
