Transform Your Yard Into a Doggie Wonderland



Some people dress their dogs in sweaters. Others cart them around in designer bags or strollers. If your pooch is a big boy or girl and needs room to roam around, design a backyard that allows him or her to play and discover something new every day.

Water Park
Not all dogs love to swim, but most don’t mind splashing through a few puddles. Create a water play area for your dog. To keep it simple, set up a swirling sprinkler in one corner of the yard and set it on a timer. Watch your pup’s surprise when the sprinkler starts spinning! If you know your dog loves water but you don’t have room for a pool, install a small fountain or pond in your yard. Make sure to put in a filter to keep the water fresh, because it turns out, dogs aren’t too discerning about what they drink. Keep portable dog kennel fencinghandy for those times when you need Fido to stay dry.

Ahoy, Matey
Dogs love to see what’s going on around the neighborhood. If your dog is friendly enough, cut a small square in the fence so Buster and Trixie can watch the world go by. Seeing a dog’s snout sticking out of a yard is very enticing to other dog lovers, so only do this if you’re sure your dog won’t snap. For extra safety, install a plexiglass bubble window in your fence, so your dog can see out, but little fingers can’t poke in. Be prepared to clean nose smudges off this porthole frequently.
Rocking Out
If your dog likes a good sniff, add several large rock features around your yard. Small critters like to hide in the nooks and crannies making the smells enticing. As long as your dog can’t pick the rocks up, these cairns should be fairly indestructible to playful mutts.

You may not always be able to get to a dog park, but you can create a doggie wonderland in your own backyard with a few simple features to make each day different and exciting for your four-footed friends.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
