Understanding Agricultural Problems

When I started farming for a living, I realized that there were more than a few things I needed to work on. For starters, I needed to go through and think carefully about my schedule, and then I needed to read up on the biology of plants. I worked hard to understand agricultural topics, and before I knew it, my crop was thriving. It took a lot of work, but I was really pleased that I was able to get everything sorted out. This blog is here to help other people to understand agricultural problems and to address them efficiently in a timely manner.

Transform the Fenced-In Portion of Your Backyard into a Dog Park


If you will be operating a dog-sitting business from your home next summer and would like to make improvements to the fenced-in portion of your backyard in order to provide the dogs in your care with a safe, alluring place to exercise and play, complete the steps below. Once you have finished the project, pets that are dropped off at your home will be provided with a suitable dog park, and each pet's owner may feel more confident about leaving their dog in your care. 


  • rake
  • weed-pulling tool
  • topsoil 
  • shovel
  • grass seed
  • sprinkler system
  • tunnel and ramp
  • balls
  • pet water fountain
  • patio table and chairs
  • whistle
  • lanyard
  • dog treats

Rake and Level the Ground Before Planting Grass Seed

Use a rake to gather leaves and twigs into a pile. Place the yard materials in another part of your yard that will not interfere with the exercise area for dogs. Use a weed-pulling tool to eliminate weeds from the yard. Add topsoil to any portions of the ground that are not level with the rest of the fenced-in area.

Sprinkle an even layer of grass seed over bare sections of the ground where weeds were previously located. Read the packaging that the seeds came in to determine how often they need to be watered. Install a sprinkler system and program it to emit water at specific times each day. Continue watering the lawn until it is full of healthy blades of grass.

Add Equipment, Balls, and a Cooling Station

Purchase pet tunnels or a ramp from a pet store and set them up in the backyard. Lay several balls on the ground in various portions of the fenced-in portion of your property so that dogs can easily find and grab them with their mouths. Buy a cooling station that contains a large basin that is automatically filled with fresh water. After dogs have tired out from running around your property, they can rehydrate themselves whenever they would like. 

Set Up a Sitting Area

Place a patio table and chairs in a central part of your backyard, allowing you to monitor dogs that you are watching from all angles. Secure a whistle to a lanyard and set it on the table so that you can easily access when needed in order to alert one or more dogs with a high-pitched sound. Keep a box of dog treats on hand so that you will be able to lure pets over to you when you are ready to go back indoors if calling them by name does not work.

By having extra chairs arranged at the table, you can provide a space for potential new clients can sit down at when they come to your home and property for a tour and witness other dogs playing and enjoying themselves.
