Gardening with dogs? Here’s a tip- don’t try to fight their natural inclinations, and design your garden around what they are already doing.
You all know Stella here, she’s my hound mutt. She’s obsessed with squirrels. Like OBSESSED. She spends most of her time staring up at this giant camphor tree, circling around it, or trying to climb it. She hasn’t quite figured it out that if she QUIETLY snuck up on them, she'd have a chance. But her current method of barreling out of the house whining as loud as she can? No way in hell.
This spot of my yard gets beautiful sun exposure, and would have been a great spot for some perennial flowers. But with dogs, just like with nature, it’s easier to take the path of least resistance. I made my pathway the path that she’s established and shifted my garden bed over to give her that room. Everyone wins, and I don't spend forever getting angry she destroyed my flower bed!

Spending time outdoors changes the workings of our brains in ways that improve our mental health. And a healthy mind has a very strong influence on your physical health. Mind-body medicine originated more than 4,000 years ago, when physicians in China noticed that illness often followed periods of frustration in their patients’ lives. The only way that you can be truly fit is by being both mentally and physically healthy. #HealthyMindHealthyBody#EnjoyNature#BeStrong
