My favorite product from IKEA’s new line is the LURVIG blanket for only $19.99. This blanket is perfect to throw on the couch to prevent wet paws and shedding hair from penetrating the cushions. You can also use it in the car for road trips. It is a really good idea to put this blanket in your pet’s kennel so that he or she gets used to it and it “feel’s like home” to them. This will help them to enjoy the blanket and gravitate towards it outside of the home, for instance, when you go on road trips and need your pet to stay on his/her blanket in the car!In the picture above, I had pulled Harley’s blanket off of his couch and laid it on the floor. He jumped off of the couch and laid his head on his blanket in the floor. He truly enjoys his new blanket.
Two other really great, and affordable, products that we received from IKEA were the LURVIG retractable leash ($14.99) and the LURVIG dispenser with pet waste bags ($2.98). I always make little poop kits when Harley and I go for a walk. They consist of a few Kroger bags and a few pieces of paper towel. It is such a pain shoving the bags in my pocket and trying to pull them out to scoop the poop while they are wadded together falling out on the ground. The LURVIG dispenser comes with bags that easily roll out to make picking up after your pet easy. I also love that the dispenser is light weight and has a clasp so that it can be easily attached to your leash!
