Item Description...
People love their dogs. They also love their gardens. But sometimes these two passions seem to be in conflict. This new book will show you how to design your garden with your dog in mind and be your guide to dog-friendly landscaping and training efforts. Every part of this book shows you how garden design and traditional gardening tasks can blend harmoniously with dog ownership. Just like a dog can be trained to respect your indoor living space, she can also be trained to respect the garden and its many features. In this easy to follow, full-color book the author details how to design the garden with the dog in mind by observing dog behavior. She describes materials that work well with dogs as well as plant selection that can withstand even the most energetic canine. She also explains how to have a lush green lawn without harmful chemicals and offers tips for growing fruit and veggies for the entire family---including the dog! You will learn how the breed of dog (or mix of breeds) can affect garden behavior and how to avoid dog-garden conflict by good garden design and positive dog training. Boundary training, outdoor equipment, and directing digging and elimination to the right places are other features that are explained in detail.

Good for the Beginning Gardener/Dog Owner  Aug 3, 2007
Dog Friendly Gardens, Garden Friendly Dogs is a great premise for a book, and if you are both new to either gardening or dog ownership, it would be a good read. The writer presents the information in a logical order and there are plenty of lists. But ultimately it reads like little more than an organized collection of common sense notes.

There are a few aha moments in this easy read but for the experienced gardener or dog owner, those golden tidbits are few and far between. I'm glad I picked up this book, but it did not bowl me over with its imagery, imagination, or concepts.

It is an easy read, the graphics and photos are limited in quantity and quality, but overall it lacks the substance I was hoping for. The writer live in the North West and the content dedicates much of is perspective to this climate zone and type of landscape.

ho-hum  Jul 3, 2007
Makes me want to write a book on this topic myself.

There are few "tips" in this book, so if you're looking for them here, don't bother. It's mostly stuff like "want a patio? Dogs like patios, here's a general idea of how to build one." Pretty stale.

The photos and landscaping ideas are also too geographically specific -- they'll only work in places that get a lot of rainfall or moisture. I live in the desert and so found most of that part pretty useless.

There's better information online if you simply Google "pet friendly landscaping."
Garden book for dog lovers  May 20, 2007
Okay. Not as much information specific to creating a nice doggy retreat. Lots of general garden information though.
Garden Friendly Dogs  May 6, 2007
Book had some good ideas. However, if your yard is already established the ideas they came up with wouldn't work (at least in our yard). If you are putting a yard in, then you might consider some of their ideas. What I found most helpful was the plant section as to what plants are harmful to your pets.Dog Friendly Gardens, Garden Friendly Dogs
One of the few discussions of garden design which incorporates a pet's needs and habits  Oct 12, 2005
Cheryl S. Smith's Dog Friendly Gardens, Garden Friendly Dogs is one of the few discussions of garden design which incorporates a pet's needs and habits. Gardeners and pet owners alike will relish the approach, which tells how to blend traditional garden tasks and designs with a dog's needs. From plants which work well with dogs to creative use of directed digging and growing fruits and veggies for the family pet as well as the family, Dog Friendly Gardens/Garden Friendly Dogs is packed with ideas.
