Dog Friendly Garden

With a few careful steps dogs and gardens can mix, without destroyed flowerbeds and grass and become an area you can both enjoy with these dog friendly gardens advice:

Dog Friendly Garden

Having a dog friendly garden does not mean you have to accept unpleasant smells and sights. Here we give advice to help you get the most from your garden.

• The urine from female dogs can burn grass giving it a yellow ringed appearance. This can be overcome by feeding her a wee drop of tomato sauce each day - the ingredients neutralise the burning.

The Drummer Boy
Whilst my four legged companion sat beside me I wrote a book which tells the story of The Drummer Boy. This novel is about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.

Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty's Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.

• Avoid using any pesticides, slug killers and chemicals in the dog garden that can be dangerous to your dog's health.

• Paving in a dog friendly garden will act as a radiator in the summer as it absorbs the heat. Most dogs will love to lie in it in the summer, but do have areas of shade or grassed areas in a dog garden that your dog can access and cool down.

Dog in Garden

• If you do have flowerbeds in dog friendly gardens, consider raising these so your dog will not be able to access them to dig. You could provide a sand pit area in the dog garden where he or she can freely dig. Choose a slightly heavier weight sand that will not blow about and which mimics earth density.
