Are You A Dog Sitter? Hire An Interior Designer After Buying A Home

by Aapo Ahola

If you own a home and provide a variety of dog services to clients, one of which includes dog sitting in your own house, you may want to make sure everything is set up properly. While you can design and furnish the house on your own and end up with a functional home, you should not hesitate to hire an interior designer that can make your home an ideal place for dog sitting.


An important design aspect to look into is the furniture that you place throughout the house. Prioritizing materials and fabrics that will stay in great condition when you are watching dogs throughout the year will help you avoid excessive wear and tear. This also means that getting an interior designer to assist in furnishing your home will save you a lot of money over time.

Going with metal legs for most furniture over wood legs is an excellent example of prioritizing a certain material because dogs will be staying in your house. Although wood is quite durable, you will find that dogs can scratch the legs and leave noticeable damage in no time at all.


When you put up decorations around the house, you should consider the fact that you may end up watching mischievous dogs. This means that you will benefit from putting up decorations that the dogs cannot reach or that cannot be damaged by dogs gaining access to them. An interior designer may put most wall decorations high enough to keep from being within reach of dogs.


While watching dogs, your needs for a functional home may be a bit different compared to someone who does not own any dogs and does not watch them inside their home. For instance, you may want quick and easy access to the backyard because you may know that you will go on lots of trips outside for bathroom breaks and exercise sessions with dogs that you are watching.

An interior designer can come up with various floor plans and layouts with functionality in mind. Then, you can decide what features you like the most and a professional can implement them.

Watching dogs in your home is a major responsibility, and you may be determined to provide all your clients with a positive experience that keeps them coming back for your services. An interior designer can give you the edge that you need to make sure your home is an ideal place for dog sitting.
