The Perfect Outdoor Space for Your Pet

Day 16 of 30 Days to the Best Pet Home is all about creating the perfect outdoor space for your pet!

While creating an outdoor space for your pet may seem straightforward, sometimes people forget to consider things other than a dog house or catio. For example, is your garden pet-friendly? Does your pet also have a space dedicated to play time? Don’t worry, and I have a few tips for creating the perfect outdoor space for your pet:

Provide them with a play space

As pet parents, we may be interested in having a lovely home, but we are even more interested in making sure that our pets have fun! Meaning, they need to have space in your yard where there are (almost) no rules and they can be their fun-loving selves! You might want to consider a dog run, or other fenced location for play time.

Make sure that your garden plants and fertilizers are completely safe for your pet.

A few months ago, we covered several pet poison topics with a specific post on what is safe & not safe in your garden. I will defer to that post for specific flowers and fertilizers to avoid.

Pick the right outdoor shelter

Both dogs and cats alike could use the perfect outdoor shelter to take a break from the elements (or in the cats case, to be in the elements).

You can get creative with something that accentuates the style of your home or you can go with the more traditional styles of dog houses and catios. Here is some Pinterest inspiration:

    That little house with the hot tubs right up MY alley. I’d move out from the humans and into that crib with the Doodles!
