Dog friendly play yard - I am trying to create an area in my yard that can be visually attractive and hold up to the abuse of two large dogs playing. I want to end the constant battle with mud. Any suggestions?

The area didn't have a drainage problem. Before i put the landscaping fabric & mulch, that area had grass. Anytime it rained & the dogs played the grass got ripped up. Eventually i had more mud than grass. The mulch sometimes gets moved around & wiil probably need to be filled in once a year. It's been a good solution for us.

Hi..I have two dobie 's and am in a mountain desert zone 8. I have a slope and lots of DG and rock..I am thinking the landscape cloth and pea gravel for my backyard. I am going to use river rock to to hold the pea gravel where I want it to stay, and make berms with the mulch around the planted areas with rock borders. I pray this problem is the dust clouds when they wrestle and the dry dusty residue that comes off (poof) when they hop through the doggy door! I am hoping this cuts the dusty mess down!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to The Dog Days of Interior Design?
Nothing like a retriever in the great outdoors. Rustic and dependable.So did Houzz designers use these dogs as their inspiration? Roll over to the Comments section and bark if you think so.More:50 Dogs in DesignJust for Fun: Styling Photos With Pets5 Pet Problems Solved by Design
Katya Popova added this to A Romp Through Pet-Friendly Materials
Of course, hardwood floors can work well too. Just know that when your pet reaches maturity, you may have to refinish those lovely boards. Thankfully, with hardwood floors, you can always count on intact wood beneath the scratched surface.Laminate is a practical way to get out of the extensive care of hardwood. It maintains the look while offering a virtually indestructible play surface for your best friend.
A similar thing happens in this photo, but with a dog. Yes, even a pooch can help photos. This one draws our attention outside, away from the huge fireplace that dominates the sparse interior. The dog's distant gaze lets us know that the view is more expansive when seen from the porch.
Alison Hodgson added this to So You're Thinking About Getting a Dog
2. Are you willing to make time? Dogs need exercise and attention. Consider your schedule and current commitments to help decide if you can meet a dog's basic needs. Research different breeds. Our English Lab, Jack, requires much more exercise than our little pug, Oliver, does, but in a pinch we could leave Jack home alone all day and he would be fine, and our home would be, too. Ollie? Not so much. 3. Do you have the space? Will you need to make room for a kennel? Where will the dog sleep? Will you allow your dog on the furniture? Many dogs like to be right by their people, which means they can be constantly underfoot. We taught our dogs to stay out of the work zone in the kitchen and to keep off the furniture unless invited, but this required training, which brings me to the next point.
