Life definitely changes when you bring a cat or dog home. Your mornings become walk times, you are on a strict feeding schedule (theirs), and your floor will always be littered with toys and treats. Anyone would agree, however, that once you cross over to being a pet owner, well — there's no going back. Right? Well maybe not, if you believe one man's hilarious video on TikTok.

If you've ever judged someone for not taking the pet plunge just yet, you should probably think again.

The social media creator knows a thing or two about pet ownership, he has a German Shepherd named Freya that he regularly features on his page. But we guess he must recall what it was like before he brought Freya home, because he made a hilarious send-up of what pet owners must seem like to those without a fur-kid.

Set to a trending sound from the movie, The Devil Wears Prada, the clip shows the man buttering some toast as both a pet owner and non-pet owner. The non-pet owner butters their toast normally, while a pet owner has a little extra seasoning on their food — animal hair. Lots and lots of animal hair.

"Dog owners will understand," the man joked in the caption.

Boy did they. People with pets had a lot to say in the comments section. "Yeah don't let the short-haired ones fool you either," joked one person. "Accurate, I probably eat a little dog hair every day," another commenter kidded. "As long as you vacuum twice a day, dust every other day, and wash sheets every three days, and only have them in at night or on hot/stormy days it’s TOTALLY doable," someone else teased.

Tips for Tackling Your Dog’s Hair Around the House

If it feels like you always have your vacuum cleaner out, you might have a dog that sheds a lot. Dog hair is certainly one of the trickier parts of owning a dog. Here are some tips if the dog hair just keeps piling up:

When it comes to dog hair, a good defense really is the best offense. Brushing your dog's hair often and with the right brush for their fur length can really help.

You might also want to rethink your dog's diet, as dogs that are getting all of the vitamins and minerals they need might be less likely to shed.

Your dog might not like the last piece of advice, but baths are a great way to wash away dead hair. More baths can mean less hair hanging around on the ground.

Dog hair is certainly a bummer, but it's a small price to pay for all that puppy love.
