Clean your pet’s feet before letting him into the house. For dirty feet, try a water dip, then a towel. Any caked mud will turn into muddy water and will be easier to wipe off. (Better the towel than the carpet!) Use a damp towel to wipe the floors, one that’s big and reusable. Maybe get a large towel as the dog way station by the door, then dip, wipe, release?
