DIY Dog Retreats

If you’re a DIY enthusiast, setting up the ultimate play area for your pup can be as intricate or simple as you desire.

The space would need to be both functional and comfortable and by doing this yourself, it’s fully customizable. This means you get to choose flooring that works well with Fido but also looks great, wall treatments that make sense, and furnishings that can withstand a game of tug-o-war and the occasional mud and rain sessions that could leave your furry friend less than pristine.

Include some toys and comfortable seating for yourself for the ultimate chill time.
