Must have dog friendly features
1. Doggy Doors
This is an oldie but a goodie. Doggy doors have stood the test of time because they make keeping a dog that much easier. You won't have to worry about getting Fido out the house in time for toilet breaks and he can come and go as he pleases. They love a stroll outdoors and some needed fresh air just like us.
2. Built-In Dog Wash
Get real fancy and give your dog his own doggy shower. Skip the glass doors and either install a large industrial style sink with a high mounted tap he'll fit into, or a low-curb shower without doors. You can find pre-fabricated ones online, but these work just as well. Just make sure the tap has an extendable shower head.
3. Match Your Pet
Maybe not so much a feature, but still a genius idea. We love our pets, but it really is a never-ending battle against their fur. Instead, match the colour of your fabrics to their fur so that if you miss a couple of hairs, they won't stand out as much. However, if your pet is white... well, white fabrics still might not be the best decision if you are a pet owner.
4. Dog Fountains
Water features are charming in any garden. Make yours pull double duty by it also serving as a place for your furry friend to drink. Pick one with a self-circulating filtration system so he always has a fresh drink while saving you water.
5. Grass Free
Installing artificial grass isn't just eco-friendly, it also reduces the mess your dog can get into. No more digging, muddy paws, yellow spots or whatever else they can get up to in the garden.
