If you are in nesting mode, there has probably been at least one occasion that your dog has sat down to observe you flying around and wondered, “Now, just what exactly is going on here?” It can be a hectic time, and surely your dog has noticed that something is afoot.
Once the instinct kicks in, you will always be looking for things to do to prepare for the baby, who will be arriving soon. If you have a dog to pick up after along the way as well, it is probably best to use this burst of energy to help make your home safe, clean, and ready for the baby’s arrival. The two main areas of caution are dog accidents and dog toys.
Cleaning Dog Accidents:
Train your dog well and be sure that he does his business in the right place, as failure to do so can introduce a host of dangerous germs inside your home. If your dog has an occasional accident and dirties any hard surface in your home, turn to Lysol® All Purpose Cleaner to deodorize and disinfect the affected area. Our All-Purpose Cleaner kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, so you can be sure that it helps to protect your baby. For area rugs, use our Lysol® Fabric Mist to clean any bacterial odours and leave behind a crispy fresh aroma.
Cleaning Dog Toys:
After your baby arrives, it will not be long before they are moving about the house with your dog. Until they know for sure that your dog’s toys are not their own toys, keep these toys clean with the same All-Purpose Cleaner to help create a healthier environment for your baby. Regularly wipe the toys clean with the All-Purpose Cleaner, rinse with water, and then dry them off before returning them to your canine pal.
Follow these tips to ensure that your dog is not a potential hazard for your home’s newest and most important addition. With the right coaching and a period of adjustment, your pooch will continue being man’s best friend once your baby has arrived.
