Home Design Ideas for a Pet-Friendly Home
Much like how new parents baby-proof their homes for their unborn child, those who are interested in welcoming a new pet in their space would similarly have to make a few adjustments. Don’t worry—there are a lot of design ideas you should take into consideration so you and your new furry friend will have a well-designed living space.
- Coordinate with your pet’s fur color
Are you looking to bring home a white Persian cat, or perhaps a chocolate brown Labrador? You have to be mindful about the color of your existing furniture. If you have a lot of black rugs and throw pillow covers in your living room, your cat’s white fur might become a sight for sore eyes. Opt for lighter shades of fabric that can easily mask the color of your pet’s fur so that you don’t always have to bust out your vacuum cleaner or lint roller to get rid of the hair they shed.
- Know what kinds of decor to avoid
While there’s no sure way of knowing what kind of temperament your new pet will have, researching about the most common behavior of the breed or species you’re getting is essential. If you want to have big dogs inside the house, and they’re the type that gets so energetic, it might be best to lay off buying vases or glass decorations they can easily bump and break.
- Choose your flooring carefully
Your pets will leave scratches on your floor, causing unwanted marks that can destroy the aesthetics of your space. If you have the budget to adjust your flooring to ceramic tiles, then all the better! Hardwood floors are difficult to maintain with a four-legged friend frequently running around, while laminated flooring can bloat and crack when soaked with water for long periods (your pet’s urine or water bowl spilling).
- Camouflage pet toys as decor
This technique is more commonly seen in cat owners’ homes, but you can very much adapt it to whatever pet you have. Cats need scratching posts to sharpen their nails, as well as multiple elevated areas in the home to sleep or exercise on. You can have custom shelves created to achieve this, and have rattan cover specific areas of your house as a makeshift scratch post. Remember, your home will be your pet’s home, too, so it’s nice to give them areas of your house that they can genuinely call theirs.
- Invest in slipcovers for furniture
Your dog or cat would want to sit and hang out wherever you are, and if that means sitting beside you on the couch while you’re watching television, they’ll do that. They can’t help it that their paws are dirty sometimes, so it’s likely that they could damage the sofa. Worse, their nails could get stuck on the fabric and cause a tear. You can invest in slipcovers that you can place over your couch to protect it from such cases. You can even have one custom made in different patters to suit your personal style!
A Beautiful Home for a Wonderful Pet
Part of ensuring that your pet will be comfortable in your home is providing them with space to just be and enjoy their company with you. If you have restrictive interiors and keep reprimanding them from certain areas of the house, it will be a very stressful experience for both you and your furry friend. That’s why it’s important to adjust your surroundings for your pet while also maintaining your home’s unique charm and style identity. At the end of the day, what’s important is that you and your pet are both satisfied. Try the tips above and see what works!
Easy Way to Make a Cozy Pet Bed from Old Sweaters
Learn how you can make a cozy pet bed from your old sweaters. This method is significantly cheaper than purchasing from a pets store. We will give you step by step guides on how to make DIY crafts.
Your cute and cuddly friend is likely feeling cold in the winter months. But don’t worry, as there are plenty of methods to DIYing them an affordable yet comfortable pet bed. There’s no need to go to a pet store and spend hundreds of dollars on one that they are probably going to grow out of.
Instead, use multiple tips and tricks to learn how to craft a simple pet bed using sweaters. In this article, we will provide you with a tutorial with various types of beds to make. This way, you and your pup can find something that both of you enjoy.
Different Types of Sweater Beds
There are rumors methods for making pet beds from a sweater, and we’re going to give you various options. These all range in size, softness, and ease of crafting. So, be sure to choose the one you feel comfortable making. Although, we always advise that you measure your dog’s length and width and add a few inches on each side to know that they will fit on the sweater bed. If you need more information, check out Pets Expert.
Cuddly Sweater Bed
This sweater bed is comfortable to wash and make. It’s designed to have removable stuffing, and it will only take a bit of time to make. So, without further hesitation, let’s get into the pet steps for bed;
- Wool old sweater preferably rounded neck
- Stuffing or pillow or pillow innards
- Zipper, snap, or velcro
- Sewing machine or needle and thread
- Baby blanket or fleece material
- Take the stuffing and begin to stuff every inch of the sweater. We find it easier if you stuff the arms first, then the main body. You’ll want it fully stuffed so that it has enough thickness to be comfortable while your pet lies down.
- Measure around the stuffed sweater and see how much fabric it takes to cover both around the width and girth of it. After that, outline and cut pieces of material that can wrap around it before sewing them on the top of the sweater.
- Use velcro or snaps at the opening of the sweater where the neckline would be and install them.
- Sew the cuffs of the sweater together, bringing them around the bottom of the sweater. This way, they will look like the edge of a dog bed. Sew them into place.
- Zip or velcro the sweater shut and sew any remaining openings. From here, fluff the bed and make sure it stays in place; all you’ll need to do is wait and see if your pup likes it.
Upcycled Winter Sweater Bed
The upcycled winter seater bed is better used if you get a new sweater from the store. Make sure you find one that’s one size up of what your dog seems to like it needs, otherwise your pup might not fit onto the bed comfortably. Here are the following steps;
- Oversized winter sweater
- Sewing needle and thread or sewing machine
- Pillow and extra stuffing
- First, check to see if the pillow you can fit inside the sweater without any issues. If not, you’ll need to find a pillow that fits into the main torso area of the sweater.
- Start by sewing up the neck of the sweater. After this is done, you’ll want to go back and stitch it completely closed.
3.next, you’re going to want to sew across armpit to armpit, making a delightful ending for the pillow.
- Take your stuffing and put them into the arms of the sweater before sealing them up with more stitching.
- Take the pad and place it into the lower part of the sweater. Secure it into place by sewing the opening at the bottom of the sweater.
- Stuff one sleeve into another and use them as the edge of a dog bed.
Top Tips & Tricks
As you can see, it’s not that difficult to make a dog bed. It’s much easier if you’re doing it using a sweater than instead trying to make it by hand. Your dog has a nice little indent where they feel comfortable, and they can rest their heads on the side arms.
However, we do want to offer a few tips and tricks that can help you avoid any mistakes. Firstly, try and choose sweaters that are big enough for your dog and don’t have a rough texture. Sweaters should be soft, non-shedding, and be comfortable to the touch.
Secondly, using a sewing machine can help ensure that the stitches won’t come undone. Hand sewing is much more comfortable, but dogs are notorious for being rough with everything they come into contact with. If your little one uses the bed as a toy, the stitching may come out, and you’ll go home to a living room full of stuffing.
Lastly, make sure that your pup has a big enough sweater bed. Small dog breeds tend to need a small to medium sweater from the women’s section. Medium to large breeds is suitable for men’s small and medium. And a big dog may require an extra or XXXL size from the men’s section.
These methods of creating your dog beds are remarkably cheaper than going out and purchasing one from the pet store. Not only are these affordable, but often they are more comfortable too. Your pup will enjoy the familiar scent of you and your home while they are resting, which makes them like it even more. Hopefully, we’ve helped you how to make pet beds via DIY crafts.

AniCura Presents Quality and Sustainability Report for 2018 – Commits to Reduce Antibiotic use by Half
AniCura, one of Europe’sleading providers of high-quality veterinary care for companion animals, presents its quality and sustainability report for 2018 and commits to reduce the company’s antibiotic use by half until 2030.
Since 2015, AniCura has issued an annual quality report covering the developments within quality and patient safety as well as antibiotic use among AniCura’s clinics. During 2018, the majority of AniCura’s clinics reduced unnecessary use of antibiotics, and at one third of the clinics antibiotic use was reduced with more than 30 percent. Now, the company accelerates its efforts to counteract the spread of resistant bacteria and commits to reduce antibiotic use by half until year 2030.
– Resistant bacteria are today one of the most serious threats against human and animal health, driven by overconsumption of antibiotics and poor hygiene standards in health care. A wiser use of antibiotics is a key undertaking for us and we aim to reduce our antibiotic use by half, says Ulrika Grönlund, Group Medical Quality Manager AniCura.
AniCura’s quality and sustainability report is the first of its kind in the veterinary industry and covers the developments within the nine focus areas of QualiCura, AniCura’s medical quality program. In 2018, AniCura engaged with its stakeholders to take a holistic perspective on sustainability and the report for 2018 covers besides quality and antibiotic use also the company’s work to develop sustainable working conditions, support pet owners in preventive health measures as well as AniCura’s environmental impact.
– I’m proud over the fact that we are recognized for our quality development agenda and the annual quality report issued every year. This year we have taken the report a step further by including key areas of sustainability as we know sustainable veterinary care is of high importance to both customers and employees. The purpose of our report is to provide transparency around our operations and share our learnings with the entire market to inspire further development, says Peter Dahlberg, CEO AniCura.
