Making Life Easier When Living With a Senior Dog - 5 Eyeliners and a Gloss

Making Life Easier When Living With a Senior Dog

Thank you Hartz for sponsoring this post. Hartz Dog Pads are America’s #1 brand of dog pads and are available nationwide at Walmart, Amazon and your local grocery store.

It's probably hard to imagine but we've never been dog people, and in fact, we weren't looking to ever have any dogs come into our peaceful lives. But it's funny how life works and sometimes the least expected comes to fruition. It's now been almost five years since we became first-time dog owners and had to learn the ins and outs of caring for not just a dog, but a senior dog. 

Probably the hardest thing we've had to deal with when it comes to caring for her has been her bathroom trips and occasional accidents. At first, it was learning to schedule our lives around her, making sure that someone could come home every few hours to let her out. Now that she's gotting older and begun to suffer from light incontinence, we've had to be super proactive when it comes to preventing accidents and extra cleanup. All along there has been one tool that's made the biggest difference in these two areas for us and that is Hartz Home Protection Quilted Plus Dog Pads

Since her incontinence began, we now place Hartz Home Protection Quilted Plus Dog Pads throughout the house where we know she loves to lay down to sleep. I place a pad on the living room chair, at the foot of my bed and if she's had a bad day I will even place one on her bed at night, just so I don't have to wash it more than once a week. Luckly the pads are nice and thin so they don't make her uncomfortable at all but they work so well that nothing underneath ever gets wet or smelly. Hartz Dog Pads use unique, patented FlashDry® Gel technology, which instantly turns liquid into gel, locking in moisture and preventing leaks and unpleasant odors.

Hartz Home Protection Quilted Plus Dog Pads have also become an on-the-go tool for us when we are out and about with Rocky. She loves being in the car during short trips to drop the kids off at school or to run errands and with the protection of Hartz Home Protection Quilted Plus Dog Pads, I don't have to worry about ruining the leather or smelling up the kids' car seats, which she loves to sit on.  

If we're visiting the family, another pad comes out with us so she can freely hang out on the couch or my sisters' bed, which are her preferred spots. Thanks to Hartz Home Protection Quilted Plus Dog Pads we've not had to limit her time on the furniture, which would be really hard on her since she's always been allowed on them. 

Hartz Home Protection Dog Pads: Designed with six layers, the FlashDry® Gel technology locks in moisture and allows for multiple uses. The odor eliminating capability instantly eliminates odors and contains a fresh lavender scent for lasting freshness.

And I don't know about other dogs but Rocky hates going out in the rain, even if she really had to go to the bathroom. The past weeks it's been super rainy in California and have had days that going out for a walk is impossible, which is again where Hartz Dog Pads have become invaluable. 

Hartz Home Protection Quilted Plus Dog Pads are a must-have in my book, they're one of the first things I recommend to new dog parents or anyone whose dog is getting up there in age. They just make things so much easier and less stressful for both you and your pet. 

Walking Rocky a few times a day is enjoyable for her and a nice little break in the day for me, but it's so nice to know that Hartz Home Protection Dog Pads are there for us for those days and moments we just can't get out there. Plus now that Rocky is older and suffering from light incontinence, they've been even more helpful to us and are such a great tool for allowing her to live her best quality of life.
