Hi
Me and my partner bought a puppy 4 months ago, he's now 6 months old and I'm really struggling to cope. The mess, the paws, the hairs.. really testing me. But I cannot sell him, he's become a part of the family I couldn't see him go. Does anyone have any tips on how I can cope with this? I keep on top of the cleaning, but then more mess appears!!! Thanks

Hi,
Sorry you have OCD, I'm sure you do already brushing will keep the mess to a minimal.
Bathing the dog also helps, some of the pet vacuums remove more hair etc.
Good luck with your little one.

Keep a good supply of old towels at the door and give pooch a good rubbing down before you come indoors, pets unfortunately are messy but I hope it doesn't get the better of you Heather and the pleasure your dog brings will help you relax, I have a touch of OCD with cleaning and every time we've lost a dog ( we have our forth one now) I say no more but within no time I'm pineing for another, our house is just not a home without our beloved dog.

Hey don't give up.x

I've just trained a Beagle and they are well stubborn.


Wee weed and poo pops.

Get some Dog Trainging Pads and put them sorry to say the front room. Where you live.
Then after a week move the training mats near to a rear garden entrance door.

Mats always have to be available in both rooms until the dog start to bark at a door entrance.

As for hairs, combing outside = less hairs.

Without seeming rude , a dog is a human we all have struggles and you can't sell a human but somedays we all might need a new start...

I struggle with my Beagle, get annoyed but I luv him to bits.

Someone said to me 'owning a dog us like having a child that only lives for 15 years so make the most if it and tell them you love them every day's "And I do".
