Keeping The Pets Dry And Cool
Pet Shade is an important part of responsible pet ownership. We will
help you find many different ways to keep your outdoor pets cool and
dry. From a covered dog run to an eight stall mare motel, let us help
you find the pet shade that is right for you.
Here are some economical options to consider when thinking about providing
shade for your pets.
- Shade Sails or Canopies: Install shade sails or canopies in your
pet's outdoor area. These affordable fabric structures can be easily attached
to existing structures or supported by poles. They provide a good amount of
shade and are available in various sizes and shapes to suit your pet's space.
- Tarp or Tarpaulin: Use a tarp or tarpaulin to create a makeshift shade
cover. Secure one end of the tarp to a fence, wall, or poles and stretch it
across the pet's area, ensuring it provides ample shade. Secure the other end
with stakes or ties. Tarpaulins are relatively inexpensive and readily
available at hardware stores.
- DIY Shade Structure: Build a simple and cost-effective shade structure
using PVC pipes or wooden beams. Create a frame by connecting the pipes or
beams to form a roof-like structure. Cover the frame with shade cloth or a
tarp to provide shade. This option requires some basic DIY skills but can be
a budget-friendly solution.
- Umbrella or Patio Parasol: Place an outdoor umbrella or patio parasol in
your pet's outdoor space to provide immediate shade. Choose one with a sturdy
base and an adjustable tilt feature to ensure optimal shade coverage
throughout the day.
- Natural Shade: Utilize existing natural shade from trees or shrubs in
your pet's outdoor area. If there are no natural shade sources, consider
planting fast-growing trees or installing a trellis with climbing plants to
provide shade in the long run. However, note that it may take time for the
trees or plants to grow and provide sufficient shade.
Remember to ensure proper airflow and ventilation in the shaded area to
prevent overheating. Additionally, always provide access to fresh water and a
cool spot for your pet to retreat to, even within the shaded area. Regularly
monitor your pet's behavior and well-being to ensure they are comfortable and
safe in their outdoor environment.
