Whether you have a whole pack of poodles or just one dog, dog runs are useful, and your hairy friends will enjoy playing and running around in them. There are different types of dog runs, and when you decide what type of a dog run to use according to your available space and budget, make sure that you have a pretty good idea what dog run is and how you can employ it.

A dog run is a restricted area where the dog is safely kept and have enough space to exercise. A dog run can be private or public, designed for a single dog, or for the entire pack, like, for example, a public dog park.

Backyard Dog Run

If you are a homeowner, you may allocate a unique space on one side of your house, or inside your yard. The easiest setup presumes metal fence, but if you like to use the wooden fence instead, make sure that your dog won't tear it up. Choose shadowy place with easy access to water. Dogs should always have fresh water and a shady area to rest when it is hot outside.

If your backyard is big, often it is difficult to keep your dog inside the fence. Chaining a dog is not an ideal option for multiple reasons. In general, chained dogs often more neurotic, aggressive, anxious, and unhappy than unchained dogs. They can get bitten more often by other animals. They are not getting enough exercise. In some regions long-term chaining of dogs, it is prohibited by the law. Keeping your dog inside a dog run area while you are not around is safer and much healthier for both of you.

If your backyard is too small, it is a better idea to fence your dog to make sure he can't escape and also to protect items he or she may chew on.

If you use chemicals or fertilizers for your lawn, remember that it is not safe for animals. It might potentially create rashes and allergies, vomiting and liver problems. Synthetic turf surfaces are much safer for dogs if you want them to be in a good health.

If you keep your dog inside a dog run with a natural grass surface, you will start to see brownish spots in a matter of months. No matter what you do, either try to hose it down or soak the area with nitrogen, it is impossible to get rid of them. Grass dies from dog's urine. It never happens if you have synthetic grass inside your dog run.

Portable Dog Runs

As an alternative, portable dog run can be useful to keep a dog out of trouble. It is more used for travel, but can be good as a temporary solution in some circumstances. Most pet stores carry portable dog runs. Dogs have much more freedom to do their "business" than traveling on a leash.

Dog Parks

Public, fenced-in, off-leash dog parks are another category of the dog run. Some dogs love socializing with their friends, but it is no for everyone. You can be removed from the dog park if your dog is active in an aggressive fashion. Check carefully your dog reactions to other dogs before entering the run with your dog. Otherwise, dog parks are the best, safe environment for your dog to run and play.

Beautiful Woman sitting on a floor with a white dog

Your small puppy is sitting in the grass, looking towards the camera, expressive eyebrows drew up high. We call them "puppy dog eyes."
Are all dogs born with those sweet, sad, capturing our hearts expression? Dogs evolved to have expressive eyebrows precisely because we are so affected by puppy dog eyes. The eyebrows help dogs communicate how they are feeling to their owner.

Dogs love to play in the dirt, and as much as we love them, we have a different attitude towards cleanliness. Dogs mark their territory. Rolling up in mud is their way to show you what they've been up to. For humans, living in an organized environment helps to stay in shape and be more active and healthy. Can you mitigate the differences?
