Dog-Friendly Backyard Ideas on a Budget

According to the Canadian Animal Health Institute, 60 percent of Canadian households have at least one dog or cat. In fact, the country saw a pet population boom since the pandemic. There are now an estimated 7.9 million dogs in Canada, up from 7.7 million in 2020, and 8.5 million cats, up from 8.1 million in 2020. While it’s easy to leave cats indoors without coming home to complete destruction, dogs need a little bit more to keep them from causing chaos and mayhem. The easy solution is to leave your dog – or dogs – outside when you need to go out. Why not make it fun for them, though? It doesn’t have to cost you lots of money to create a doggy paradise. Check out these dog friendly backyard ideas on a budget for inspiration.
