These Dog Runs Could Inspire Your Next DIY Project

Dog owners know all too well how important it is to let your pooch get outside and moving.

These designated spaces can keep your dog out of the garden, provide them with a place to go potty, and give them some fun obstacles to stay busy. Read on for photos and tips that may inspire you to build a DIY dog run.
