Dog owners face a lot of cute, but sometimes tiring troubles their pooch brings home. These are some life-saving hacks for you.

DIY Liquid Cleaner for Odor and stain
You have to mix a cup of three per cent hydrogen peroxide with two teaspoons of very mild liquid dishwashing soap. For dog urine, soak up the liquid before cleaning up. Sprinkle the spot generously with baking soda, and let it sit for some time before washing.

Squeegee to clean dog hair
 Next time you can use a window squeegee to remove pet hair from your carpet, car seats, and sofas. A squeegee can efficiently remove the hair stuck in the fabric.

Parsley saves a breath
 Dogs have stinky breath usually when some food is stuck in their teeth or when they get wet dog food. If you don’t want to change their diet, you can sprinkle some parsley leaves on top of the dog food to keep his breath fresh.

Save the shampoo for long
Dog shampoo can be very costly sometimes. So if you want to use the shampoo for long, get a plastic pitcher, and add water to the shampoo with a 4 to 1 ratio. There will be no waste of shampoo

Learn about CPR for Emergency Situations
Dogs can choke at any time, and you have to be prepared for emergency situations. It's recommended that you have the necessary knowledge of CPR to save your and other's dogs

Semi-destructive stuffed Toys
If your pooch enjoys ripping apart the stuffed toys, buy a Hol-ee Roller Ball, which you can stuff with lots of fabric scraps and a piece of treat in the middle. Your dog will stay engaged for  hours to remove the fabrics and get the treat.
