Keeping our house clean is very important to me. You never know what micro-organisms you bring into your house with your paws/ dirty shoes. So I have a front door doormat specially made for guests who don't have any idea what to do with dirty shoes and a carpeted floor:
And for our greys, we buy baby wipes for after walks wiping and Arthur's Doggie Paw Wipes for last walk/before bedtime wiping.
Arthur's Doggie Paw Wipes has natural ingredients so I feel ok using it on both greys. The scent (mild citrus) is not overpowering so husband is ok with it.
