Like you, your dog loves to be outside. They want to enjoy the weather, run and play, and spend time with you outside. What better way to make your yard a puppy paradise then adding some dog-centric hardscaping to your yard this summer?
A Place to Call Their Own
There are two big ideas when it comes to backyard space for your dog, especially if they spend a majority of the day outside. Shade and shelter are the key to keeping your pup happy, so consider either a dog house or shade cloth to help keep them out of the sun. A dog house gives your pet a safe and secluded place to relax if they are outside all day, but can take up a lot of space in your yard. On the other hand, shade cloths don’t offer any privacy, but can be used to cover a lounge or dining area while doubling as your dog’s go-to cool down spot.
Fresh water is top on the list for a dog that’s outside for hours at a time. Installing a small fountain or stream provides your dog with fresh water while adding to the appeal of your yard. If your dog really loves the water, you could add a small pool or pond for them to cool off in. Make sure they can easily get in and out to keep things safe.
If you spend a lot of time maintaining your yard and are worried about your active little friend destroying all your hard work, a dog run might be a good idea. A dog run is the ideal way to make sure your dog is getting all the exercise it needs, while keeping your lawn safe from prying paws. It’s essential to make sure the materials used are easy on your dog’s paws, and any barriers are tall enough and sturdy enough to keep your dog in.
