Is your dog a member of the family? I know our Daisy is. Be sure to plan around having a crew in your pet’s space. Some customers choose to board their pets but it isn’t necessary in most cases. With a few extra walks during the day and proper precaution taken in the evening, your pets can stay safe right there at home. Be sure to bring up pet safety with your Contractor, the conversation has to be had. The last thing you need is a sad little girl when her puppy hurts a paw…. not to mention a vet bill in addition to the price of your new patio.

Rebar is often times very sharp at the end and just stepping on it can slice your pet open. I don’t know about your dog but ours loves to run at top speed for absolutely no reason. Unfortunately stakes are going to be sticking out of your yard that weren’t there yesterday, this can do a lot of damage to an unsuspecting pet. Orange safety fencing can easily be installed around most concrete projects to keep your pet away from the hazards. It will also protect the concrete once it is poured. Give your Contractor a heads up and let them know that safety has to come first for your pet. Don’t settle for a 2 star experience just to get that 3 star price.
