Dogs feel it’s their job to patrol the perimeters of the yard. Rather than fight this instinct, include a running space at or near the edge of your yard and add a clearly designed route to get to it. Make the route straight or softly curving; your dog will probably cut the corner rather than make a 90-degree turn.

Much easier to maintain! Modern landscaping. Tropical, sand, Mexican pebbles, palm trees, succulents
