Whether you have one or ten dogs, your furry friends deserve a special spot to call their own. Setting up a designated space for your dog creates a secure area where they can retreat when they feel anxious or overwhelmed.
There are a few things you can do to create a beautiful and functional space for your pet.
As much as dogs love to snuggle and play, they also enjoy spending time in a their own space. Having a designated room to escape to when they need to rest, relax, sleep, play, or even eat could be ideal. Make sure you provide a cozy bed or blanket, water bowls, food bowls, and favorite toys for maximum comfort.
Create a pet nook
If you don’t have a room to dedicate to your pup, then find a space to create a simple nook. This could be under a staircase, a corner of your apartment, or any other area in your home with some privacy. Fill it with plush materials that can wash easily and make it close enough to your family room as dogs enjoy moving to and from their nook.
Dogs will easily relax and wind down when offered a cozy cave-like bed or under-counter crate fitted with extra cushioning like blankets and added pillows.
Dogs that are prone to making movements all over the house sometimes need to be restricted from accessing certain areas for their safety. Installing a high-quality gate, whether indoors or outdoors, can keep your dog safe and prevent it from potential mischief.
