Your outdoor living space should be an area that they entire family can enjoy. That means your furry family members as well. Your cats and dogs love spending time with you inside or out. A pet friendly outdoor living space ensures that every member of the family can enjoy a nice relaxing time together in the outdoors.
When creating a pet friendly outdoor living space, you should consider all the things for your pet that you think about for you. They want a clean comfortable place to relax, a place that’s dry when it’s raining and shady when there’s lots of sun, and place to enjoy refreshments!
Pet Friendly Outdoor Living Comfort
This can be a bit selfish. If you’re someone who wants your patio furniture to last, it’s probably best to keep your pets off it. Giving them their own area will help curb their desire to join you on your love-seat. A nice, soft pillow or pet bed is a great option because it can easily be moved if needed and they can also be laundered to keep tidy. If you’ve got a large dog, perhaps is best to actually cordon off their own area so they can still be outside, but not completely in your space.
Pet Friendly Shelters
The sun and the rain aren’t any fun for your furry family. A great addition to all inclusive outdoor living space is a shelter for your pet. Of course you can incorporate the traditional dog house or cat castle. But, if you’re looking for something more temporary, they are pop up tents that will keep your pets dry in the rain and cooler in the summer months.
Synthetic Turf for Pet Friendly Outdoor Living
Another new trend is outdoor living is pet friendly hypoallergenic turf. Synthetic turf made of high quality is more readily available on the market than ever before. It’s a great surface that you and your pets will enjoy walking on. It also helps keep them free of dirt and pests due to the hypoallergenic materials used to construct the turf.
