Welcome the world’s first, one and only Pet Friendly House!

. . . And, much, much more!
You might ask why build a pet friendly home?
Well for one thing, pet ownership in North America has greatly increased over the last 20 years. Currently, over 50 percent of households own at least one pet—these pets are definitely part of the family. And, we at ProfessorsHouse.com believe that simplifying the pet ownership experience means less day-to-day hassles and fewer furry companions ending up in shelters and/or foster care.
Our mission is not to build a tricked out mansion for affluent homeowners and their designer dogs and cats. Our mission is to educate our viewers about the joys of pet ownership, as well as how to simplify the daily family experience for all members, two- and four-legged. . . and a few fish, too.
We know that pet ownership sometimes can be difficult. Those furry little beasts we love so much do a number on our furniture, clothes, flooring and automobiles. And, let’s not forget yards and outdoor space! Spring rains make mud a puppy’s best friend and your carpet’s worst nightmare. Consequently, winter snow end ups on the hardwood floors, seemingly miles from the back door!
Through the Pet Friendly House, this website will offer our viewers information and tips about the best family AND pet friendly products, services and design features available to and afforded by the average North American household.
A few of the many valuable tips and information we will offer include:
- Carpet cleaning tips, to the most appropriate carpet grades specifically for kids and pets
- Choosing the perfect kitten, to advice on how to train your cat to NOT scratch your furniture
- Environmentally conscious pet care products, to child safe, green cleaning aids
- Pet food storage tips, to functionally crafted cabinets
- Automobile accessories, to tips on traveling with kids and pets
- Child and pet friendly play areas, to the safest easy care landscaping and outdoor design
. . . The list goes on, and it is comprehensive and fun. . . From the tried and true, to the new and unexpected.
