What Houzz contributors are saying:

If your dog has already created a path through your yard, you can try to retrain him or her by creating new paths and blocking the old route. In the end, though, it may be easier to give in and go with what’s established. Use paw-friendly materials to turn it from a dirt path to something that's inviting to everyone. Concrete, brick, flagstone, smooth river stones and smooth gravel are great for dog paws. Using fine bark as a mulch works too, but not cocoa mulch — ever. For smooth-coated dogs, thicker mulch is good; for dogs with longish fur, you may want to avoid even small mulch, because it will attach to your dog and end up all over your house.
4. Mulch. If you don't have many plants, this is even more important. Mulch creates a tidy look, but even more important, it suppresses weeds and helps retain moisture in the soil. Be careful not to layer it any thicker than 4 inches, and leave a little room around the base of every plant.How to Pick a Mulch — and Why Your Soil Wants It

7. Choose comfortable materials. Landscaping materials shouldn't get too hot, should be easy to walk on and ideally should not cling to fur and feet. Concrete, brick, flagstone, pebbles and smooth rocks are all good choices.

Put In Paths Dogs feel it’s their job to patrol the perimeters of the yard. Rather than fight this instinct, include a running space at or near the edge of your yard and add a clearly designed route to get to it. Make the route straight or softly curving; your dog will probably cut the corner rather than make a 90-degree turn.
