Sensory gardens provide exciting areas to forage, exercise, explore and aim to enrich the lives of our dogs. They are designed to reduce stress and encourage our dogs to become more confident in themselves and their surroundings by using different smells, textures, sounds and tastes.
What is a dog sensory garden? An area explicitly designed to provide stimulation and enrichment for dogs through plants, materials, textures, shapes, colours, scents and heights. A sensory garden aims to reduce stress, anxiety and encourage dogs to be more confident in the environment.
A boring lawn isn’t very exciting for you or your dog, and that’s what I had. Just grass. You don’t have to start from scratch like me; a little bit of dog-friendly landscaping can help decrease boredom and encourage natural behaviours. I loved creating my garden for Dolly, the French Bulldog, so I thought I would put it all together in a handy 35 page eBook.
