Evercare’s need-to-know tips and tricks for welcoming your new furry friend to your cozy home

It’s finally happening: you are becoming a pet parent! Soon you will be welcoming someone special to your home. The last thing we want for you is to be unprepared and overwhelmed with the hard work of caring for a new pet. Our Evercare pet line has got you covered! Whether you’re looking to tackle bigger messes with our Giant T-Handle Lint Roller or are on the go and need a quick clean-up with our Pet Lint Roller, Evercare can quickly handle your needs. Much preparation and maintenance are involved with pet care, so we have assembled the ultimate new pet parent guide. 

Before They Arrive

Becoming a pet parent comes with a whole laundry list of responsibilities: keeping up with vet appointments, taking them out for walks, arranging pet care before you travel, and so much more. As we always say, it’s best to stay ready so you don’t have to get ready. Here’s a short checklist to have completed before you take your new furry friend home for the first time:


  • Budget. It is so easy to underestimate the cost of a pet! Add regular veterinary visits, food, treats, and other pet supplies to your monthly budget.
  • Research. Learning more about your dog's unique needs based on age, size, and breed is essential, which can inform their diet, exercise habits, and hygiene needs. 
  • Create a cozy space just for them. Stock up on tools like a pet bed, blanket, toys, and food bowls to ensure they’re always comfortable. Don’t forget to add our Evercare Pet Lint Roller to the mix to keep your space clean and cozy for everyone.
  • Puppy-proof your place. Remove shoes, chords, toxic plants or foods, or other valuable items from easy-to-reach areas to prevent uninvited destruction. The more toys they have, the less likely they will ruin your stuff!

They’re Here! Now What?

The day has come: your new pet is home, so the real fun begins. Finding your flow with your pet is essential, but that can take some time. Be sure to be patient not only with your pet but with yourself. As you acclimate yourselves to this new lifestyle, keep these tips in mind:


  • Wake up early with your pet. Caring for a pet calls for a change in your lifestyle. You must incorporate a consistent routine into your schedule to better potty train your pet and ensure they get regular quality time with their favorite human.
  • Keep it clean. Now that your furry friend is walking around like they own the place, keeping up with your cleaning schedule is a bit tougher. Our Evercare Mega Pet Lint Roller can eliminate those pesky pet hairs left behind in no time. 
  • Use treats to train them. Invest some quality time in teaching your pet basic commands (sit, stay, come) to keep your pet and others safe. Reward them with a treat every time they follow your orders to instill the importance of obedience.


Caring for a new pet is no easy feat, but trust us when we say all that hard work is well worth it. Pets add so much warmth and unwavering support to our lives, so why not do our best to provide them with a happy and healthy life? With our foolproof guide and Evercare lint rollers, we’re confident you’ll be a phenomenal pet parent.
