A property offers four-legged friends plenty of space, exercise and play opportunities. However, in order for the dog to be able to move safely, some important measures must be taken.The property should definitely be fenced in. If you choose a dog as a family member, you should of course be able to offer it a little exercise. For dogs there is nothing better than being allowed to romp around in the garden all day. So that they can also play unattended outdoors, the garden must of course be made dog-safe. The most important thing is that the four-legged friend cannot get out and that you do without poisonous plants of all kinds in your garden.
If you follow all tips and advice, nothing stands in the way of great garden happiness for dogs and humans.
Fencing the garden dog-proof
Spout is great, but an escape-proof fence is needed for small and large outliers. It also protects passers-by and foreign children - even the most well-behaved dog tends to be aggressive, especially when it is irritated. Choose the fence so that it fits the house and garden design. Wood or wire mesh offer many options for an individual fence.
It should be high enough that the dog cannot jump over it - not even with a start! With a fence height of 150 to 200 centimeters, you are on the safe side. The distance between the individual fence slats or the gaps in the chain link fence must not allow any space to slip through. Also keep in mind that some dogs are world champions of the digging, so the fence should extend a bit into the ground.
If a wire fence seems too profane, you can beautify it with shrubs or climbing plants. The chain link fence is always the right choice if you already have a hedging boundary or are planning to do so. The hedge without a fence looks good, but tempts dogs to squeeze through the hedge. With a fence in dark green, you have a barely visible but effective addition to the hedge.
Safe pond, safe pool
If you have a pond or pool, check if your dog comes out of the water alone. At best, he can swim and find a way to get out quickly.
Non-toxic, harmless plants
Poisonous plants have no place in a garden where dogs live. As a precaution, replace the plants or attach an additional fence. Dogs do not normally eat leaves and berries, but it is comforting if you eliminate such sources of danger.
What is in the garden ...
Plant protection products, fertilizers, slug pellets, garden tools, paint and lacquer cans, tools, power cables and the like belong in a safe place. A lockable garden shed or a box made of plastic / wood with a well-fitting lid is well suited. In it you can keep all things that are potentially harmful. The garbage can should also be secured.
Garden time is barbecue time - but not for dogs!
Please do not feed seasoned grilled meat or grilled sausages to dogs! Remain steadfast, even if the begging look is heartbreaking. Dogs can't stand anything on the grill. When it comes to meat with bones, the risk is also great. If you prefer to get your four-legged friend's favorite treats, it will be easier for him to do without!
