Meet Rudy. Handsome guy isn’t it? About three years ago, when P was really little she used to have an imaginary dog. She would get a piece of string and drag it on the floor and when you’d ask her what she was doing, she’d say “I’m walking my dog, Rudy.” For at least a year, she begged us for a real dog while simultaneously caring for her imaginary one. When we moved to Florida, Matt and Peighton finally talked me into getting a puppy and what else would we name him, but Rudy.
He’s bigger than we expected and has more energy than all of us combined but he fits right into our crazy house. He’s always getting into mischief whether it’s stealing snacks from the pantry or digging in my flowers. His favorite pastime is digging in my garden bed, chewing up every little tiny figurine the girls have and of course sneaking into bedrooms to roll around on the carpet.
Until recently, bedrooms (especially ours since we had just made it over) were off limits to Rudy because dirty paws and carpet don’t work well at all. When I got an invitation to review a new line of Home Depot carpet, their LifeProof carpet that was specifically designed to be “pet proof,” I immediately said yes. PetProof carpet is the best carpet for pets. This Home Depot carpet is designed to be animal-friendly and is the perfect addition for pet owners (and young families) because it combats the toughest pet stains. It’s 0% moisture absorption reduces pet odors in the carpet fibers while the NonolocTM spill and soil shield make for quick and easy cleanup.
I discovered rather quickly that this carpet isn’t just great for Rudy, it’s great for my kids. It’s 0% moisture absorption reduces pet odors in the carpet fibers while the NonolocTM spill and soil shield makes for quick and easy cleanup of those unexpected spills from the kids or the dog. It’s also 3X easier to clean dirt, hair and pet dander. They had me at dirt. Seriously. I specifically the love the one we selected with the low pile, it feels like the vacuum can more easily pick up the dirt and dander than the higher pile carpets.
The PetProof line of carpet has a great selection of styles and colors. I selected a diamond pattern called Sawyer in the color First Choice. I don’t think they offer this exactly pattern and color combination anymore but this one is very similar. I love the patterned style, and the carpet is so plush underfoot.
Because the Home Depot PetProof carpet is so much easier to clean and is literally the best carpet for pets, I felt confident going with a lighter color carpet than before and I’m so glad I did because it fits so much better with the style of our home.
This carpet is a game changer for our furry kid. I love that Rudy can come in and lay down next to the bed without me freaking out at the thought of the black dirt staining our carpet and I think he’s pretty crazy about it too.
