Having a Play Space for Pets

Real Estate Agent with Douglas Elliman
Our dog was with us for many happy years before passing away just last year. Pets are members of the family and it's important to have a designated space in the home for them, too. Here are some ways to help create a fun and comfortable space for your pets:
  • Add a Pet Door and Outside Play Area

Since we can't be home all of the time to let pets outside, having a pet door that opens up into an outdoor fenced area can help your pets safely enjoy the outdoors while we are away at work or school. If you worry about unwelcome critters entering the home through the pet door, there are pet doors that unlock with a special key attached to your pet's collar. 

  • Create a Pet Room Under Your Stairs

There's often wasted space under stairwells. Turn this space into a comfy, fun room for your pet. Add a pad and blankets and a few toys to cozy up your pet's new room, which can be their very own personal "happy space."

  • Create a Special Path to Run

Dogs need exercise. If your dog loves to play outside, try using a few feet along your fence line to create a fun running path for your dog. Remember to avoid landscaping along the path that could potentially harm your pet, so add plants that have soft foliage.


Please share your other ideas for making special designated pet areas in your home.
