- When planning your homemade hideaway, think about the things that you and your four-legged friend might enjoy doing together.

- Although it's easy to get excited about all the possibilities, keep it simple and avoid overpowering your yard with playthings.

- Include elements that both of you can enjoy, such as a sandbox or wading pool, open play area, or shady spot to relax.

- Give your canine pal options, such as places to be warm or cool, or a variety of surfaces (hard and soft.)

- Include places to indulge in favorite activities like fetch, flying disk, or king of the hill.

Most importantly, keep it fun! Having a special place to relax and enjoy each other's company will help strengthen the bond between you and your new family member even more.
