20 Tips For Gardening With Dogs

It’s really nice if we start to introduce our dog to our garden. The earlier we start training them the better so that we can avoid any disasters concerning our garden and our pets. That is why I always bring my poodle whenever I have time to clean my garden.

Start Young

The earlier you start training your dog the better. Old dogs can learn new tricks, but if you have a puppy, begin training as soon as you bring it home. Let it know right away what parts of the garden are off limits. And don’t assume puppies can’t learn. Even puppies as young as six weeks old can master basic commands.

Don’t Leave Your Dog Alone

If you want a perfect lawn or garden, don’t just shove your dog out the back door while you are at work. Dogs require exercise and get bored easily. Left alone, they quickly find ways to amuse themselves — and that may mean digging up your favorite plants or tearing out your sod.

Teach Your Dog Obedience

Take your dog to an obedience class so it understands basic commands such as sit, stay, and down. Larger dogs, especially, make better gardening partners if they know how to hang out without causing trouble or getting in the way. Find a local obedience class and enroll your dog as soon as you adopt it.
