Make a dog friendly yard :)
My owners actually love me so much they are making a dog friendly yard for me and my partner in crime, “Lucy Bell”.
Here are a few items they are implementing at my place:
I love a good running path…create a border along the fence line so I can patrol the area thoroughly. Use crushed rock with stone, enclosed in bend-a-board to make a great running surface, and a patrol route for me!
I dig a good boulder or two…Give a me boulder that I can climb on and use as a lookout. A nice moss rock will do. I also need a smaller boulder for my marker spot. That’s quite important to us male doggies. Place it at the edge of my patrol area, that’s where I like it.
I do enjoy my comforts….Give me some comfy bark to walk on, and some decomposed granite to run through. Both feel great on my paws. Don’t forget my access to water with a pond less water feature. That way I can have a sip and get my paws wet. By all means, give me some shade. Place my shade in the cooler side of my yard, because I’m going to dig there anyhow!
