How To Clean And Disinfect Your Dog Kennel

How to clean and disinfect your dog kennel

We all know that keeping your dog inside a kennel has its advantages. However, did you know that kennels that are left unclean can lead to your dog having unhealthy problems? Would you leave your house dirty for more than a few days? No! If you are a dog owner and are keeping your dog inside a kennel and would like to save costs on trips to the vet, then here’s what you need to know.

Why should you clean your dog kennel?

We all know dogs love the outdoors, are always hyperactive around everything and anything that moves and always ends up getting dirty one way or the other. However, when inside their homes and yours, they tend to bring bacteria along the way.

Bacteria are germs that everybody dislikes. They are microorganisms that can be found from contaminated areas such as soil. As these microorganisms are typically found in unclean kennels which can be a health hazard, it is fundamental to have regular cleaning check-ups to ensure a safe and health-free environment for both you and your pet.

How often should you clean your dog’s kennel?

Cleaning your dog kennel once a week should prevent your pet from having any health complications in the future. At Slaneyside Kennels and Runs, we have a range of odour germ free products that are designed to disinfect and kill any bacteria living inside your dog’s kennel. Our range of products are dog-friendly and are harmless to the environment.

What are the steps to cleaning your dog’s kennel?

First, remove any bedding, toys, bowls and unwanted waste such as dog residue. Using a hose, rinse these items and the kennel thoroughly. Using a sponge, soak it in water and use any of our Kennel Cleaning Products. Scrub all surfaces inside to remove unwanted dirt. Rinse the kennel with the hose afterwards to kill off any additional bacteria.
