Add a Dog Run
If you have a side yard or other section of your backyard to spare, considering turning it into a dog run that is just for your pets. You can create a custom dog run that is perfect for what they need, depending on their size, play preferences, and more.
Make Sure Your Pooch Has Shade and/or Shelter
When your dog spends a lot of time outside, they are going to eventually need some shade and possibly shelter. You can create a unique dog house that they will love to lie in or simply plant a few trees to provide shade. You can also choose to place the dog run in a space that already gets shade.
Ensure Their Access to Fresh Water
One of the most important things necessary to keep your pooch happy and healthy is ensuring they have access to clean water at all times – especially when they are outside running around and burning energy. You could choose a simple water bottle, or you could add a unique touch with a canine water fountain or feature.
Use Pet-Friendly Artificial Turf
You might assume that the best option for a dog is to have natural grass, but this is not accurate. With natural grass, they run the risk of getting muddy, dirty, and otherwise stinky. They are also more likely to come into ticks, fleas, and other pests compared to a yard that has artificial turf. Our turf is very easy to clean, drains liquid waste without you doing anything, and only requires that you remove solid waste.
It is also clean, does not attract pests and bugs that could harm your pooch, and is beloved by furry friends everywhere.
Choose Plants That Are Safe for Pets
Not all plants are safe for all pets. If you have live plants in your yard, make sure that they are dog-friendly. If they are not, you can dig them out and plant them elsewhere. Certain plants can make dogs sick, and others can even kill them, so be sure to carefully review any plants you have growing.
