We've had unseasonably warm weather here, 50's and 60's and its melted the snow and warming up the ground and making everything a mess.
Last nite I spent 2hrs on my hands and knees scrubbing "half" the kitchen floor. Dogs come in thru the breezeway which has indoor/outdoor carpet and into the kitchen. Dh thinks leaving them in the breezeway for a few minutes, wipes the mud off the paws.
Not so much.
|same here. muddy floors, carpet, and dog.
she is at the groomers now going short. hope this helps some
I guess we can't change the weather but have to deal with mud
|What do you do about the muddy foot prints on the carpet? Should I just shampoo it? It was dried so I vaccumed.....still can see prints. What a sloppy time of year-|

We got rid of the carpet-- no joke. It was a lot easier to deal with laminate and tile floors with three big, hairy dogs. Our area rugs are Flor tiles which you can separate and put in the sink to wash if necessary or, throw away and replace the piece (which isn't as cheap as I wish it was but at least it's an option).
I just got done washing Owen and I told him he's staying in a bubble until stuff starts drying out.
|Yeah, we've all had it with winter & the cold. But sometimes I think I like the snow better than the rain/mud. I am lucky in that my dog run is gravel with landscaping plastic underneath. And if the dogs need to go in the van, the garage is attached. But I do run into problems when we go to classes. The parking lots are always wet and/or muddy. I suppose the best way to attack the problem is as Jill said, get rid of the carpeting & replace with rugs. I have runners that can be hosed off if need be, in the kennel. They take a while to dry tho'. As for carpeting, my carpeted areas are "gated off". I can control who & when they can go onto those areas. When we go to dog shows & stay in a motel, they get booted everytime they go outside. Wet boots get dried with the doggy hairdyer for the next trip out!. Come to think of it, I never went to this much trouble with my 2 boys!|
|We also want to get rid of the carpeting, it was bad when we bought the house and now is #$$%%^^^^ get the idea.
As soon as i get funds I will get a new LR floor. Even if i have to do it my self.......
|Dust season still here Given up trying to keep up with it in the house and what the dogs bring in on there coats. They shake and dust flies around the house. Now if only I can tie a dust cloth to those tails and get them wagging on all the benches and furniture it will halve my house cleaning|
|Can I swap your dust for our MUD and god knows what else is mixed in?
We tiled the Kitchen and Utility room Pre Archie! and has to sulk behind bars if damp as lounge dinning room is carpeted.

Oh leaves, twigs the odd hitchhiker like a bug all sorts of wonderfull things, cept spiders I hate spiders they freak me out. Years ago one of the girls must of been under a bush outside and when I let her in, she had a HUGE huntsman spider on her back coat, screamed, pushed her outside then got a long stick to flick it off her before letting her back in. She wondered why the HECK her mom was acting like a raving lunatic.
Tiles here downstairs thank goodness, upstairs is carpeted so a baby gate keeps the dirt balls from venturing up there. Nah keep my dust, you can have the mud but we do deperately need the rain and along with that the mud that will eventual be on the ground . When we do have decent rain fall in what is a desert of dry dust outside will turn into heaps of mud, lost all the green grass long ago so am not looking forward to that if it ever rains again.
