Create a Pet Friendly Patio to Share with Your Furry Friends
Creating a pet-friendly patio is a fantastic way to provide your pets with a space where they can enjoy the outdoors in a safe and comfortable environment. Your furry little friends deserve some fresh air and fun in the sun too. Here are our top 5 tips on how to make a pet friendly patio:
Especially for cats and smaller dogs, safety is essential if your patio is on the second floor or on the first floor, next to a busy street. Use fine wire or plastic fencing if you have wide open railings. Double and triple check that there is no opportunity for your pets to take themselves out for a walk.
Consider the Weather
Provide shade with an umbrella or a pet canopy for warm summer days. Always have fresh drinking water available outside, maybe throw in a couple of ice cubes on a hot day.
Safe Non Toxic Plants
Pet Friendly Outdoor Furniture
Pet friendly furniture is your best choice if you want to successfully share the patio with your pets. Choose scratch resistant materials, like wood, metal, or resin, and waterproof upholstery, where you can remove and wash the casings.
