Get Dark-Colored (and Washable!) Bedding
No matter how many baths and wipe-downs your pet gets, it's inevitable that their paws and coats will accumulate some grime — grime that becomes all the more noticeable if you have light-colored bedding. Learn from my ruined white duvet mistake! Having a dark grey or navy comforter or duvet cover will get you a few extra days between washes, and will be more presentable in general. Make sure it's also machine washable — pet owners know how invaluable that quality can be. I love Parachute Home's quilt ($249) — it only gets softer and more cozy with each wash.
