New to us but used dog house
Hi All, we scored a free dog house for Patches on the weekend. We went and picked it up, it needs new shingles and paint or siding, but it's insulated and extremely heavy! It took 4 adults to carry it from the truck to the spot we selected in our yard. Anyways, it is a used dog house, so I am looking for some tips on 'cleaning it out' and ways to help make it Patches' house. He may use it very little, I don't know. He is a inside dog, but LOVES being outside. A lot of days he won't come inside when my husband has to leave for work, so this way if it rains or a storm rolls in, he has some where he can go. It currently has some hay inside of it from the previous owner that I will sweep out, but what other things can I do to maybe remove anything left from the previous dog, smells, etc. I am guessing that the vinegar/alcohol mix would be good to spray it down with inside and out???
Thanks so much for your input!
