Can You Patch Your Carpet Yourself?

Can You Patch Your Carpet Yourself

Many homeowners have their fuzzy little creatures at home with them during this difficult time. However, being cooped up at home can make your dog get a little crazy and cause some damage around the house. You might want to make sure that you have plenty for them to do, otherwise they might take it out on your carpet. If you don’t want to have to deal with a hole in your carpet, then you might want to think of some inventive ways to keep your dog occupied. Here are some of our best suggestions:

Take Your Dog for a Walk

When it comes to the Colorado shelter in place you will find that walking your dog is considered an exemption. This will allow your dog to get out some of his energy and help you when it comes to the mental aspects of having to stay in your home for days. Make sure that you walk where there aren’t a lot of people. Everyone may have the same idea so you may have to get creative when it comes to where you walk your dog. If that is even a little too risky for you then here are some other options for you to consider.

Your Backyard

If you don’t feel comfortable taking a step off your property, then you can always take shelter in your backyard. Sometimes all your dog may need is a little time with you throwing the ball. Take the time out of your day to make sure that you’re taking care of their needs. If all you can do is a 5- or 10-minute break, that will go a long way in helping your dog be calm while in the house.

Chew Toy

If you can’t get out to give your dog some exercise, then it might be best that you get a chew toy for them to focus on. This will help them to get out all their nervous energy in a constructive way instead of your carpet. A $30 toy is better than a $100-150 patch.

If your dog does get nervous and starts to take it out on your carpet, then you’ll want to make sure that you get it taken care of because of safety hazards. There is also the possibility that your dog might make it worse in the meantime and it ends up costing you more. You might be thinking that you can get the tools yourself at home depot and fix it yourself. That way you avoid people coming into your house. But think about the difference of exposing yourself to a crowd of people or to just one person. Whichever way you want to go about it is up to you.
