6 Shopping and Decorating Tips for Your Pet-Friendly San Antonio Apartment

(April 28, 2016) / by Jenny Elbel

Pet_Friendly_Decorating.jpgOur pet-friendly Springs San Antonio communities include on-site off-leash parks so your precious pup has a convenient place to play and socialize with other dogs. Since your pet will spend more time indoors, making sure he's comfortable there means less stress for you. We've put together a helpful list of suggestions for making your pet feel right at home.

1. Keep the Floors Bare

No matter how often you vacuum, it's next to impossible to successfully deal with the hair, odor and stains that get deep into carpets. Our luxury Springs apartment homes feature hardwood-style flooring that looks fabulous and is easy to maintain, even with the inevitable "accidents." If you like, accent with some inexpensive area or throw rugs that are durable and stain-resistant.

2. Simplify Cleanup 

Dogs have a knack for finding the muddiest, messiest outdoor spots. Until dogs are considerate enough to start wiping their paws on the front door mat, keep a handy paw washer on hand for quick cleanup. They're inexpensive enough to get one for your car, too.

3. Give Your Cat a Boost

It's well-known that cats enjoy being high up in order to survey their kingdom. There is a wide variety of clever cat perches on the market at price points to suit any budget. As a bonus, they generally serve double-duty as scratching posts.

4. Create a Cozy Haven

Dogs and cats need some private time just like their humans do. Use a corner or other out-of-the-way spot to set up a retreat where your pet can sleep or just relax on his own. Include a pet bed or soft cushion along with food, water and some favorite toys.

5. Speaking of Toys…

An assortment of fun toys is a must-have, but avoid pig's ears, rawhide bones and other sloppy chewables, which can be as bad for your pet as they are for your apartment. There are some great interactive toys for both cats and dogs that hold their attention while keeping their minds sharp.

6. Shop with Your Pet

What better way to make sure your purchase is pet-approved than to take your dog or cat with you? Here are some of the best pet shops and boutiques around San Antonio:
