Keeping home clean with dogs?
I have two dogs - a 50 pound cattle dog and a 5 pound chihuahua - both seniors. Both dogs shed like crazy and my little chihuahua has a bladder control issue. So my house is hairy and smells. I do what I can to keep them clean with regular baths and brushing and they are healthy. But it makes me embarrssed to have anyone over. There is hair everywhere (couches, etc) and I feel like I can't de-odor my house from the pee/pet smell. My house is very clean and minimal in stuff. My couch is an Ektorp from Ikea which means the cover can be washed but unfortunately it's black and the hair shows up everywhere even when using a removable blanket. All of the living areas of my house are wood floors and bedrooms are carpet. Thanks
