Ivy8mush ,  no doubt mush for brains.  The "porthole" can be made smaller than the dogs head can fit through (try, if you can, to think of a chainlink fence with thousands of "portholes" smaller than your dogs head, but probably not yours)  You can also place a "porthole" at a higher elevation so the dog has to stand up to look out of but cannot climb through.  And as for the comment on chaining you r dog up, it is a criminal offense to tether (this means chain up, idiot) your dog in my state and I hope it is in yours too.


Sedteacher, a locked fence keeps them safe?  Really?!  SO the criminals in your fantasy can't open a lock or jump a fence?  And the dogs dont dig under or jump a fence while youre at work?  Yeah right!!! If you're not watching your pet. as you said, then you are a bad pet owner.  Irresponsible and neglecting.   I've seen your dogs at the dog pound and on the highway shoulder! Dead! Moron!! 


Gee you'd think that the pet owners were a little smarter than the pets here but I'm not seeing the trend

The pooch is slide #2 is a 4 legged clown who I'd adopt in a heartbeat! Of course, there would have to be limitations - a single floor doghouse with an open floor plan, but an attached garage just isn't practical. Skylights are negotiable, but a personal chef - unless it is me -  just isn't gonna happen!

Duncan is an adult cat.  New cat is 5 years old.  Puppy is a puppy!  I know I've gotta sequesture these guys for a few weeks and introduce them gradually to each other.  Wish me luck!

Very good ideas!  I am welcoming a new cat and a puppy into our house this month.  They will join Duncan, and indoor/outdoor 7-year old that has had free reign for the last 5 years.

Linoleum good for pets?  Are you crazy!  Think of those pets with arthritis or weak hips or knees.  Linoleum makes it very hard to walk.  Thin, easy to clean carpeting that can be picked up and thrown in the wash, but sticks to the flooring so it does not slide is best for older pets.   As for an invisible fence vs. a regular 6-8 foot fence, I do like an invisible fence so your pet can see the world, but it also makes it easier for criminals to snag them .  A locked fence, that your pet can not climb keeps them save when they are outdoors and not being watched, like when they go out their doggie door while you are at work...

The ideas are a bit to the extreme. Don't you think?
Don't get me wrong they are awesome but its that would you really spend all that money on some of those things when you can do the same in a cheaper and simpler way? think about it : )

PS:  The "porthole"???  A dog that can fit his head through the porthole (as in the illustration) can get out of the porthole in 1 second.  NO.  Portholes lead to barking.  Take your pet for a walk.

"Pet experts" (morons) don't recommend "invisible fences" because it caused the dog pain.

A chevy Suburban passing over your pet's liver causes pain, too, and then death.  Get the invisible fence and collar.  It only causes them pain once or twice until they learn, and then they are in charge of their own pain.  a little pain can be a learning experience.  Run over is forever.  Or, you can chain or cable them.  It is easy to remove obstacles that can tangle the chain.  You provide shelter, shade and a big water pan, and they are pain free and just fine.

WOW! Thing to make pets happy!!! maybe we should look around our house first to make sure we've done all to make our family happy. I wish we cared about people, our own family and our loved ones, half of what we care about animals. This is sad.

Another mindless article.  I can't see how linoleum will make my pet happy.  Me maybe, but most of these are about ease for the owner not joy for the pet.  I thought there might be some great products.  Not discussion of cleanability of paint surfaces.

Yes-electrical cords are a big problem. It is also a good idea to unplug things when not using them. Saves electricity and prevents fires. Microwaves are often a big problem as well so just unplug it at the end of the night.
