Designate a play area for your furry friend. A place where they can chew their favorite toy or climb and scratch without worrying about destroying your furniture. It doesn’t need to be an entire room, it can be a space in the corner where you know they can’t get in the way. Keep an open basket or decorative box in the same area to hide all their toys, so it’s easily accessible for you and your pet.

Pet Friendly Upholstery
If you’re not a big fan of leather, try Microfiber, a synthetic fabric. Microfiber fabrics are stain and spill-resistant because the tiny polyester and nylon threads are tightly bonded together creating a lightweight, dense, water-resistant material. They are also easy to clean with a lint roller, fabric shaver, and vacuum.

Make it a functional entryway that will make leaving and entering your home a lot easier for you and your pet. Use woven baskets, wall shelves, and stylish hooks to store all your pet’s accessories, like leashes, raincoat, poop bags, and pet wipes to clean their muddy paws before entering the house.
