Designing For Dogs

Meet Betty, below, this is her home.
 Nearby is a shaded bare patch of earth she loves to lay on in summer.
I left her space alone in the new Landscape Design.
 I paid attention to her pathways, tweeked them a bit, and was rewarded.  Betty uses her 'improved' paths.
Betty's friend, at right above, was moving a bit too fast for his portrait.  He lives 2 houses down.
.
I assume all plants are toxic to dogs, and know a swallowed rock or twig can mean death.

Dogs?  I pay attention to their habits for sleeping, playing, protection.  And let their habits lead the Landscape Design.

Dogs are like children. If you have them- you must plan with them in mind.

What a good idea to landscape with dogs in mind. Mine love to "secure the perimeter" ie run around the inside of the fence and chase squirrels. I have to remember this and leave them a little room.
