having a dog as your copilot can be both
00:05
challenging and rewarding that’s
00:07
mentioned nice to always have a closed
00:09
towel nearby to hang out with this week
00:11
we put together 11 awesome dog hacks to
00:13
help give your puppy booboo a better
00:15
life and make things easier on you
00:17
let’s go fetch them if your dog is a fan
00:20
of toys then you know they can add up in
00:22
price pretty quick especially if they
00:24
have the tendency to destroy them grab
00:25
yourself an empty water bottle that size
00:27
appropriate for your little dog squeeze
00:29
the bottle in just a bit and put the lid
00:31
back on to keep it lopsided and prevent
00:33
it from being crushed completely this
00:35
will make a nice alluring crinkle sound
00:37
that dogs love now just grab an old
00:39
fluffy sock or a new one if that’s what
00:41
you’d prefer and put the water bottle
00:43
inside you’ll want to tie off the sock
00:45
to leave this little extra room inside
00:47
it’s possible you can even consider
00:48
cutting off the excess if you wish when
00:50
you’re done just toss it to your pooch
00:52
and give them something to do for a
00:53
little while also keep in mind that if
00:55
your dog has a problem destroying human
00:57
clothing you might want to try hiding
00:59
the water bottle inside something else
01:00
so they don’t worsen them half if your
01:02
doggy too fast from time to time it can
01:04
lead to an upset stomach
01:06
if you can’t always be there to monitor
01:07
their eating habits then try that place
01:10
the ball and the bowls and cut off their
01:11
full access to the kibble this will
01:13
force them to move the ball around to
01:14
get to the food and in theory slow them
01:16
down another method to slow your fast
01:18
eater is to use a muffin tin to spread
01:20
out all the dog food it’s cheaper than
01:22
one of those maze lulls you can find at
01:24
the store and if you want to turn it
01:25
into a game you can cut old tennis balls
01:27
in happen cover up each cup it’ll leave
01:30
your hound with a small challenge to
01:31
work around that sure to slow them down
01:33
while also entertaining them to get that
01:35
brain firing on all cylinders
01:37
fleas can strike it anytime even if you
01:39
stay on top of a treatment plan it can
01:41
still happen here’s a tried and tested
01:43
homemade flea shampoo that you’ve been
01:45
making minutes to squash that flea
01:46
problem start off with a measuring cup
01:48
and grab a bottle of jar to mix
01:50
everything for half a cup of water into
01:52
your container and follow it up with
01:54
four tablespoons of Dawn dish soap when
01:56
that Sun also adds four tablespoons of
01:58
white vinegar and mix it all together
02:00
inside the container now comes the fun
02:02
part
02:02
flying it to your doll make sure you
02:04
protect their eyes is soap and vinegar
02:06
isn’t very pleasant in your eyes
02:07
trust me work up a nice lather as the
02:09
dish soap will help kill any fleas and
02:11
with vinegar will help repel them
02:13
let your dog sit with the lather built
02:15
up for about five minutes while you wait
02:17
you can run a fine-tooth comb through
02:19
their fur and get any dead fleas out or
02:21
even living one then just dry your dog
02:23
as usual letting them get back to their
02:25
normal antics but without the flea bite
02:27
even the most well trained dogs can have
02:29
the occasional accident but you can
02:31
quickly get rid of that stain hands
02:32
smell leaving your carpet as good as new
02:34
first things first lot up any liquid
02:36
that you can with the paper towel now
02:38
sprinkle a bit of baking soda on top of
02:40
the stain and let it sit while you
02:41
prepare this recipe just make half a cup
02:43
of hydrogen peroxide with one teaspoon
02:45
of liquid dish soap once you’ve mixed it
02:48
all up you can use it right from the
02:49
container or add it to a small spray
02:51
bottle to keep on hand for the next time
02:53
something happened apply the liquid to
02:55
the spot directly onto the baking soda
02:57
and scrub back and forth until the same
02:59
lifts off completely this will also work
03:01
great for other household cakes so keep
03:03
it nearby for any other mishaps around
03:05
the house in the past we’ve shown you
03:06
how to make a pet gravity waterer using
03:08
wine bottles and zip ties but we were
03:10
inspired by an even cooler water
03:12
dispenser on Chris no depth YouTube chip
03:14
you’ll find a link to their in depth
03:16
video in the description here’s how it
03:17
works start with a piece of scrap wood
03:19
it can be square or circular find a
03:22
piece of 2×4 roughly the length of a
03:24
recycled soda bottle now attach it to
03:26
one edge of the baseboard with wood glue
03:27
and then let it dry before fastening all
03:29
together with two screws the trick here
03:32
is using a curved 2-liter soda bottle or
03:34
one that’s similar in shape then secure
03:36
it with a four inch PVC coupler you’ll
03:38
need to use a hacksaw or angle grinder
03:40
to cut out about an inch off the coupler
03:42
this openings not only going to make it
03:44
easier to drill two screws through the
03:45
coupler in two by four but it turns the
03:47
coupler into a bottle hole place a large
03:49
bowl on the baseboard and simply slide a
03:51
two-liter bottle filled with water into
03:53
the dispenser carefully twist off the
03:55
cap and allow the bowl to filled with
03:57
water on its own it’ll stop dispensing
03:59
water once the level reaches the
04:00
bottleneck open your furry friend will
04:02
be sure to enjoy a constant supply of
04:04
water without you having to worry about
04:06
filling up the bold nearly as often
04:07
maybe it’s muddy out or perhaps your dog
04:09
just has a tendency to attract dirt so
04:12
whether it’s after a walk or just a
04:13
backyard romp it’s a good idea to take
04:15
care of those dirty paws before they
04:17
step
04:17
in the house try there simple solution
04:19
grab yourself a small sport bottle
04:21
filled to the top of water and keep it
04:23
nearby while the dogs go rampage when
04:25
it’s time to go in pop off the lid and
04:26
get those dirty paws in for a microt
04:29
foot bath when you’re done just dry them
04:30
off and let’s Sparky go back to business
04:32
as usual it can sometimes be difficult
04:34
to get your dog to take its medication
04:36
you can purchase expensive tool pockets
04:38
or you can make your own with stuff you
04:40
already have laying around
04:41
start with one tablespoon of peanut
04:43
butter 1 tablespoon of milk and 2
04:45
tablespoons of flour in small bowl just
04:48
mix everything into a bowl and knead it
04:49
around mixing the ingredients together
04:51
to form a nice thick dough what you
04:53
create after that is up to you but I
04:55
suggest working the dough into a small
04:57
easily edible ball once you have your
04:58
dough all formed out to your
05:00
specification simply insert the pill
05:02
inside and cover it back up don’t take
05:04
long to make and you can safely keep
05:06
them in the fridge for up to a week so
05:08
if your pooch is fighting back when it
05:09
comes to medicine our give this a try
05:11
and they’ll never be the wiser my dog
05:13
doesn’t always follow its thirst and
05:14
sometimes needs a helping hand to cool
05:16
down here’s a couple ways to chill out
05:18
your dog and keep them happy first off
05:20
is an old favorite the pup single this
05:22
is a fairly simple treat to make and
05:24
will definitely keep your dog
05:24
entertained while cooling them down at
05:26
the same time just get an ice cube tray
05:28
and slowly fill each cubby with beef or
05:30
chicken stuff now it’s really important
05:32
to note the ingredients as you want to
05:34
avoid things like onions go for the most
05:36
baseline ingredients and keep your poop
05:37
steak once you have the tray filled up
05:39
get some plastic wrap and player it over
05:41
the top
05:42
now this part is optional but dog loves
05:43
grab a knife or some scissors and poke a
05:45
small hole over each Cubs can put a
05:48
small dog treat aside using the plastic
05:50
keep it centered and upright
05:51
once you have all the slots filled just
05:53
toss it in the freezer for few hours
05:55
these will keep for awhile so on the
05:56
next pot gay just bust out a pup-sicle
05:58
and put it on a plate for your dog to
06:00
enjoy while cooling them down at the
06:02
same time it’s almost like a little pug
06:03
left they’ll definitely get their brain
06:05
working to figure out how to get that
06:07
treat out in the middle as for another
06:08
quick way to cool down the dog on a hot
06:10
day what about a water bed
06:12
you can spend lots of money buying a
06:13
cooling mat for your dog or you can just
06:15
spend a few bucks at the store and buy
06:17
an inflatable raft take your raft
06:18
outside and lay it in a spot that avoids
06:20
direct sunlight you want this thing to
06:22
keep cool you’re going to need an air
06:24
pump attachment for this part to keep
06:26
things
06:26
but get your garden hose and plug the
06:28
air hose directly into the outlet I
06:30
added a bit of duct tape to make sure
06:31
that it holds tight plug the adapter
06:33
into the air nozzle of the wrap and on
06:35
the water make sure to keep it at a low
06:37
level of plug it might pop off otherwise
06:39
this is going to take a few minutes but
06:41
the beauty is that you really only have
06:42
to do it once per season as long as the
06:44
raft is placed in a shady area it’ll
06:46
retain a nice cool temperature which
06:48
makes it the perfect place for your dog
06:49
to have a break and cool down if you
06:51
have a large dog with huge claws make
06:53
sure that you get a vessel that can
06:55
withstand their weight and will resist
06:56
puncture that’s all there is to it a
06:58
quick and simple $3 cooling bin if
07:00
you’re tired of dealing with the dog
07:01
food bag there’s a great way to store
07:03
your kibble while keeping it fresh and
07:05
easier to hold just go through your
07:06
cupboard and liberate an old cereal
07:08
container there’s no need to pay for an
07:10
expensive kibble holder when these can
07:11
be snatched up for a buck or two just
07:13
transfer the contents of the bag right
07:15
into the plastic housing and seal it up
07:16
until it’s mean not only is it’s going
07:18
to make it easy to fill a bowl but it’s
07:19
also going to keep ants out and make it
07:21
super easy to pack a travel bag for your
07:23
pup so kick that bulky food bag to the
07:25
curb and top off your dog disk with ease
07:27
sometimes will bow well might need to
07:29
stay in one room while you clean or if
07:31
you’re moving things around there’s no
07:33
need to spend top dollar on a dog date
07:35
or baby pee grab a couple tension rods
07:37
that you’d use for hanging curtains you
07:39
can use them to prop up a towel or
07:40
better yet a feature to your curtains
07:42
just weave the rod through the fabric
07:44
and mount it into the door frame most
07:46
dogs won’t test barrios and you want to
07:48
make sure that you put it at the right
07:49
height so your dog’s unable to jump over
07:51
one last important note make sure you
07:53
shut off the other exit of the room
07:54
where your sneaky pooch might pull a TV
07:56
