Artificial Grass for Dogs

Updated on July 17, 2012

We love our pets but they can cause an awful lot of mess and inconvenience can't they? Perhaps one of the biggest bugbears of dog owners though is the mess that they make of their lawns. The great news is that there is a solution in artificial grass for dogs.

Artificial grass is a perfect solution to prevent damage to the lawn by your pet and many manufacturers of artificial grass produce the product to withstand wear and tear by any breed of dog, large or small.

Usually the product is made from a mix of polyethylene and polypropylene which are combined into strands and then made into patches of artificial grass. Using these chemicals ensures that there is no danger to your dog, even if they do decide they like the taste of it which is unlikely! Because of the strong backing used, it is virtually impossible for the dog to dig its way through it, a point backed up by the ten year plus guarantee offered by many manufacturers.

But what about the other kind of mess that a dog will leave behind? Well, most good quality synthetic grasses have a great drainage system which allows liquid to permeate through the grass and solid waste will dry and can simply be hosed away.

So what is there not to like about artificial grass for dogs? Your pet will love it, it will look great and even better, no more muddy paws on the furniture.

One small word of caution though …. Please ensure that you check with the supplier as to the suitability and safety of the artificial grass as not all will be suitable for this purpose, but if you use a reputable supplier to buy your artificial grass for dogs then they should be able to advise you correctly.
