Is your backyard pet friendly?

All pet parents like seeing their dog happily romping in the grass, but you don't need acres of meadow in your backyard to create a space that will please your dog.

We would like to share a few of our favorite dog-friendly yard-preparation ideas with you as summer approaches.

1. Build boundaries.

Safety should always come first. Build a solid fence around your backyard that your dog can't jump over (six feet is recommended to contain big dogs). Since he won't see much to bark at, a solid fence, instead of a chain link, can decrease a dog's desire to bark at people and other dogs.

2. Shelter and shade should be provided

Dogs can be sunburned and get heatstroke. Even if you live in a calm environment, your dog should be able to find shade under a tree or awning. A backyard dog house that protects your dog from the elements such as extreme heat is also necessary if your dog will spend a lot of time outdoors.

3. Add a water source.

Dogs should always have access to fresh, clean water. Any water-loving dog will adore a DIY dog-friendly fountain or pond – just make sure your dog can quickly enter and exit the pond.

4. Make sure you have a play area.

Allow as much area as possible for your dog to run and chase to keep him fit and healthy. Make paths for him to walk, patrol, prowl, and explore. A tired dog is a happy dog!

5. Recognize the risks.

Certain plants can be harmful to dogs, causing everything from vomiting to extreme issues, so be sure none of these plants are in your dog's yard. English ivy, lilies, azaleas, mums, primroses, and tulips are just a few of the toxic plants to dogs and maybe in almost every backyard. Make sure to remove such toxic plants and weeds.

We hope the above steps will help you create a Pet -Friendly backyard.
