Public dog parks offer a fantastic way for dogs to socialize and play off-leash. As fun as they are, however, dog parks don’t work for everyone. Some reasons are:
- Your schedule doesn’t match up with their operation hours.
- Your pet has health issues that make dog parks risky for them.
- There are aggressive dogs that visit your local park.
- Your dog gets skittish around other dogs.
Do any of these sound familiar? Or maybe you just want the dog park experience without having to go all the way to one. Either way, the answer is artificial turf for dogs for Palm Beach, FL backyard dog parks.
A Dog Park… In the Backyard?
You read that right! Synthetic turf in Palm Beach is a cleaner, greener and low-maintenance alternative to natural grass. On top of that, you only need to add a few features to turn it into an actual mini dog park for your pup.
But first, let’s talk about placement. Unless you plan on turning your entire lawn into a pet playground, we recommend separating it from the rest of the space.
First, it keeps all dog-related items out of your primary outdoor living space. Next, it makes it easier to manage pet waste. Finally, it helps you define and organize your backyard better. Keep the following tips in mind:
- Enclose your backyard dog park with a fence, especially if you have a canine escape artist on your hands.
- In addition, place it near a window so you can keep tabs on your dog.
- Don’t want your mini dog park to be your lawn’s focal point? Keep it in the side yard, if you have one.
Once you’ve chosen the perfect spot, it’s time to make it the most fun place ever for your dog!
5 Features for Your Backyard Dog Park
- Shade structures like a dog house: Protects your dog from the elements and gives them a cool place to nap and relax.
- A patrolling path: Install a stone or concrete pathway on the area’s outer edge where your dog can patrol to their heart’s content.
- A digging area or sandpit: Got a dog who loves to dig? Install a sandpit for hours of digging fun that won’t put your plants at risk.
- A small stone patio: This is a multi-functional feature. For instance, you can use it as a feeding station, a bath station and a clean-up station.
- A shallow pool: If you have some extra space, consider installing a splash pad or a small in-ground pool for your pup. It’s particularly perfect for hot days and good for their joints, too!
