Solution: Keeping Pets off the Rugs

living room

We are shopping for a new rug for our family room. Our  rug is worn and tired.   Wow, sounds like I’m describing myself? We were at the Great Indoors (now closed in Colorado) and were telling the sales associate about our high traffic patterns from the kids and  the dogs.

The sales associate gave us a suggestion to keep our two dogs off our new rug ( with the intention of managing the dog hair and muddy paw prints).  I’m listening.  He says, “Take one of “these… guess here”, but it in half, place it under the rug, spaced every 3-4 feet apart for two weeks.  Any guesses on what he suggested to keep under the rug to keep the dogs away…?”.

 

cigars

 

 

Cigars! Has anyone heard of this suggestion?  Do I run out and buy a box of cigars?
