What are your top pet "hacks" (tips and tricks) for making life easier or more fun with your pet?
I cover over my pets beds with a pillow case or bed sheet and changed them once a week like I do for my own bed. Keeps things much cleaner!

Here's a great tip for dealing with fur everywhere in the house! Use a window squeegee on furniture and stairs or just a regular rubber glove. The hair gets swept up so easily! | 08.31.15 @ 09:42
Seam rippers are absolutely brilliant for removing fur mats from my cat... must try!

Nose games in the house to work mind and body! | 09.03.15 @ 02:29
Have two sets of clipper blades available so that when one gets hot you can continue with the other and make the clipping go faster. | 09.15.15 @ 14:15
I have learned with three dogs and one of the three crazy digging. I put a layer of cement blocks around the bottom of my fence. So far so good. | 09.15.15 @ 14:22
When Koba and Mia get a bit rowdy with each other because they are just plumb tired but won't go to sleep because they're afraid they'll miss something, I get the kids to help brush them both (slowly and soothingly) at the same time - off to sleep for that much needed nap! | 09.15.15 @ 14:25

Make sure that the toys you give your dog are easy for him to tell apart from normal household items. For example, don't confuse him by offering shoes and socks as toys and then expecting him to distinguish between his shoe and yours. | 09.15.15 @ 14:30
I use disposable paper bowls for wet/canned food so I don't get his real dish messy and there's no clean up involved | 09.15.15 @ 14:37
Make your own toys "shred toys" for you birds. Nothing entertains them as much as shredding paper everywhere to find the hidden treat. | 09.15.15 @ 14:37
My dog sleeps in the kennel at night, other wise they tear stuff apart, i lay a small pet pillow at the bottom so that its more comfortable for them | 09.15.15 @ 14:38
Training hack /tip though probably well known, if you use pads while training place them in one area of your yard and lead the dog to that area while training so they find the scent and use that single area most often , less cleanup | 09.15.15 @ 14:45
We use salmon oil to help with shedding. | 09.15.15 @ 14:53
I keep grocery bags by the door so when we take our dog out its an instant poop bag. | 09.15.15 @ 15:06
Invest a little more in the beds that include replaceable pads and washable liners. Just be sure to follow the care instructions as pets cannot handle traditional laundry detergent. | 09.15.15 @ 16:02
I built a ledge on a high window, padded and covered it so it was soft. My cats love watching the neighborhood from the comfort of their own perch. | 09.15.15 @ 16:02

a well-fed rabbit is much easier to style than a hungry one (I have a couple angora and lion heads). | 09.15.15 @ 16:08
For pet hair on solid floors (wood or tile), I use a spray mist bottle of water and use a dedicated broom to sweep up the fur without it flying away and getting in the air. The fur balls stay clumped for easy cleanup. | 09.15.15 @ 16:51
We use plastic grocery bags to pick up after our dog when she goes outside. That way we aren't paying an arm and a leg for the bag rolls and we are reusing the bags! | 09.15.15 @ 16:57
Every summer our landscaper puts down powdered lime once a month in the yard to eliminate fleas. Not a single flea bite all summer ! | 09.15.15 @ 16:59
For my bird, I put a piece of cardboard in his food dish so then I am not wasting food, and he thinks it is always full. | 09.15.15 @ 17:06
Before we leave for vacation, we set out a lap blanket that we've used (that smells like us) and leave it for the cat to cuddle with. It helps comfort him while we're away. | 09.15.15 @ 17:17
When the pups are rowdy because they're so tired and need a nap, yet they don't want to miss anything, then it's time for a simultaneous brushing. Long, slow brushing to make them drowsy, and the kids love helping. Great way to get that nap going! | 09.15.15 @ 18:36
To give our dog pills. We roll the pills in cheese | 09.15.15 @ 21:08

I keep a small container of food next to the dog bowl to make it easier for my son to feed him | 09.16.15 @ 03:43
