Puppy’s Perfect Patio

In our last blog post, we showed you how to update your outdoor décor for this summer.  Now it’s time to bring your dog outside with you!  Let your dog cool off in the pool or lounge in the shade while you enjoy a beautiful summer day!

MANY dog owners cringe when you mention bath time for their pups.  We know firsthand how tough (and messy) it can be trying to fit a German Shepherd in a bathtub for bath time, so take advantage of these warmer days, and take your pup OUTSIDE for his bath this summer.  If your dog is easily spooked by a hose, try the dog bath from Charles & Hudson.

For larger dogs (who may need more of a heavy-duty cleaning!) the inflatable dog wash is a perfect choice.  Not only is it perfect for storage, but it will help prevent your yard from turning into one big mud pit after a bath!

If you have a pool, chances are it’s probably hard to keep your dog out of the water during summer.  Why should you?  Give your pooch a float to lounge on while staying nice and cool at the same time!

Instead of watching your little ones curl up under the tree for shade, let them hang out next to you in this chaise lounge to stay out of the sun.  The design will look great on your patio, and your dogs will thank you for a cozy place to cool off!
