Whether you call them mutts, mixed breeds, Heinz 57s or some other moniker, who doesn’t love a canine cocktail? It’s no wonder that we have a special day to celebrate them: National Mutt Day, which falls on July 31 this year.

To say a lot of life happens on our floors doesn’t really begin to tell the story of how much our floors witness over the course of our lives. They are the foundation of our homes and the bedrock of our safe space. They get to see so many cute things, like babies learning to crawl and take their first steps, snoozing pups and playful kittens. They also get to see the not-so-cute things, like drool, shedding, mud, spills, accidents, and so much more. All of those memorable and not-so-memorable moments on our floors are exactly the reasons why keeping them clean is so important.

This may not be easy for you to hear, because it definitely wasn’t easy for us to write – deep cleaning in 2020 looks a little different than what you learned from mom all those years ago. Don’t get us wrong, we are in no way saying mom was mistaken.

At BISSELL, pets are part of the family. One furry family member that is familiar to a lot of Associates here at BISSELL Headquarters is Poppy, a three-year-old Mountain Cur Husky Mix.

This policy allows Kaitlyn, and all Associates, to bring their dogs to work every day.

Ask any pet parent about their COVID-19 experience and chances are one silver lining of the pandemic and its stay-at-home order is all of the quality time they were able to spend with their pets while working from home. Now the question is what happens when everyone goes back to the workplace and pets have to stay behind at home?

We know a lot of people associate BISSELL with vacuums and pets – but what they may not know is we don’t just make products to clean up after pets, we also make products to clean pets! Just as we are always adding the latest innovations to our cleaning products, we have recently done the same for our line of pet care products! We’ve introduced many new products to the line in the last year, so it’s a great time to show you what’s new and some of our favorites.

When COVID-19 hit the United States, it changed the way we all lived. And not just for humans – shelter pets across the country quickly started to feel the effects, too. We are so proud of our friends at BISSELL Pet Foundation® (BPF) and how quickly they adjusted some of their biggest lifesaving initiatives to comply with social distancing guidelines and stay at home orders.

June is both the ASPCA’s Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and the American Humane Association’s Adopt a Cat Month. That makes it a very special month for cats. At BISSELL and Fear Free, we have a soft spot for shelter kitties, and we want to help them find homes. Here are 12 tips for finding just the right one to join your family and how to ensure a happy homecoming.

It’s hard to tell who benefits more from the pet-friendly workplace policy at BISSELL, our pets or us. There are so many benefits for humans when it comes to having pets in the office, but if you asked BISSELL Associate Carolyn, she’d argue a lot of pets benefit more than their humans.
