5. Outdoor water bowl
Summer’s here. You’ll probably be spending more time outside, and your pet will undoubtedly want to join you. You can ensure they stay hydrated and add to your property’s hardscaping with a permanent water bowl. A well-designed, sturdy basin beneath a water spigot makes it simple to give your pet access to water all summer long.

6. Built-in dog gate
You may have rooms in your home that are pet-friendly and others you want to protect from your furry family member. Many a dog owner has turned to the removable baby gate to separate spaces for their pets. While functional, it doesn’t contribute anything positive to your decor. Instead, opt for a built-in gate. You can customize the size and material to seamlessly integrate into the design of the rooms it separates.
