Pip and Princess love spending time outside, especially during the summer. Since part of the joys of having the dogs run around in the backyard is that they can be off leash, I want to make sure our backyard is safe for them to enjoy. Check out some tips below on how to keep your backyard pet-safe.
Pip & Princess love their meals (especially after spending time running around outside), so I picked up some Purina Beyond for them while doing my other grocery shopping for the week at Fred Meyer. Plus, during the month of April shoppers will be able to grab an exclusive digital coupon for $3 off any Purina Beyond dry dog food online here.
Tips To Create A Pet-Safe Backyard
- Fencing – if there is a hole in the fence, dogs will find it. Since Pip & Princess are so little, it doesn’t take much of a gap for them to squeeze through. Inspect your fence for any new holes which might have appeared. If you have larger dogs, make sure that the fence is tall enough to keep them contained.
- Plants – Dogs love to get into anything and everything. I will often turn around and see Pip & Princess running through the strawberry plants seeing if there are any delicious berries to eat. Make sure all the plants that are accessible to your dogs are safe if they accidentally ingest them.
- Yard Chemicals & Machines – Along with plants, dogs will get into whatever they think is interesting so keep all chemicals and dangerous equipment away from them. Our backyard shed is perfect for storing all these items, but the garage or waterproof bin would also work
- Sun & Shade – If you are going to be outside for an extended period of time, give your pets a variety of places to hang out. Shade for when they get a little toasty, and places for sunshine when they want to bask in the warmth of the sun. Or in the case of Pip, enjoy a little bit of both at once.
Pip and Princess have been loving Purina Beyond Superfood Blend for their meals (and at the point in the photo below were wondering when I was going to stop taking pictures and give them dinner).
Grab some Purina Beyond for a delicious meal and know that it is a great source of nutrition for them. The #1 ingredient is real poultry, meat, or fish; plus, the nutrition has been backed by pet nutritionists! Some other details about Purina Beyond are that there is no corn, wheat, soy, poultry by-product meal, added artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. They also make sure to safely source all the ingredients.

Right now we have a boundary fence that is caving in several areas so we don’t let our pup out unsupervised- but I’m hoping the neighbors can get together soon to get it fixed. We used to live in a condo, and there was NO room to run around, so this is a new experience for us! #client

Your dogs are so cute! Hunter loves our strawberry plants, too. These are really great tips. Especially for dogs like mine who always want to be outside!

I have researched the plants and shrubs and found some are toxic to dogs. Those are now history. One of the worst is the beautiful Sago Palm. My vet said they have had several dogs die from ingesting the plant and the seeds
