Dog-friendly gardens: Think like a canine

If you were a dog, what would you want? Spaniels, terriers, retrievers ― each breed has a different personality.

The better you can accommodate its particular traits, the happier your dog. And the happier your dog, the better your chance of maintaining a garden you'll both enjoy.

This dog-friendly yard includes a running track, border control, comfy mulch, sensible plants, and a piece of driftwood to serve as a marking post.
