How to Clean Up After Your New Dog, The Skout’s Honor Way!

Skout’s Honor knows that welcoming a new member of the family can be a challenging feat. When a new baby comes home, parents spend hours ‘nesting’ – decorating the nursery, washing linens and clothing, sanitizing bottles, vacuuming and safety-proofing various areas from room to room.

The same thing also happens when there’s a new puppy or adopted dog in the house! You pup-proof everything, making sure he or she doesn’t have access to dangerous TV & lamp cords, chemicals, valuables that could become chew toys, etc. You also spend time blocking off areas with nice furniture and rugs, to prevent marking incidents and expensive accidents from happening. They will potty-train in time, but what if it takes longer than you imagined it would? Here is a rundown of puppy cleaning essentials to have in your arsenal from Skout’s Honor, so that your new ‘fur’ baby will feel welcomed – and you’ll still feel at home, too!
