Earth Day Tips for Dogs

Happy Earth Day!!!

Today we are sharing a few tips on how to cut down your carbon pawprint and celebrate Earth Day!

Use biodegradable poop bags: Did you know that it takes 1,000 years for a plastic bag to degrade?

Spring Cleaning: Instead of tossing, donate your old towels, sheets, leashes and collars to a shelter.

Go Eco-Friendly: Rather than using harsh chemicals to clean up after your dog, use vinegar instead. It's a great odor remover and kills bacteria and mold.

Clean Up: Do you have a favorite local park? Gather some friends to help clean it up while the dogs play!

Take a Hike: Take your dog on a hike and just enjoy the great outdoors and all that mother nature has to offer.


  1. Great tips for going Green! Ma always uses vinegar when she is washing my towels and bedding. She says it takes my "stink" right out! I don't know what she is talking about.

  2. Hi Y'all!

    Those are great suggestions. My Human has used vinegar for cleaning for years. Woodland hikes or waterside hikes are my favorites!

    Y'all come back now!

  4. I had some dog crates donated to me for use in rescue transport, but the doors had rust on them and I searched on-line to see if I could find a safe way to remove the rust and save me having to buy replacement doors. I came across a suggestion to use vinegar, and it was amazing in how well it took the rust off. Since I didn't coat the cleaned metal doors, the rust does come back over time, but I just use vinegar (mixed with equal amount of water and using a plastic brush) to remove any new rust. It's a very budget-friendly, environmentally-friendly, and pet-friendly way of removing rust from items your dog might lick or chew on.

    Great article! Thanks for the reminder that I need to get a fresh gallon of vinegar. (My husband used the one I had to remove excess grout from the tiles he just put up in our bathroom.)

  5. That vinegar stuff can perform miracles.
    Thanks for reminding us.
