Not one living soul is meant to spend 24/7 indoors. Not even pets.
For one, we all need to see, and feel, daylight. We need to breathe in fresh air and stretch our legs. Our pets are no different.
Both dogs and cats need an open area to run and play. Without sufficient exercise, pets will not just become lethargic, but they will become unhealthy. They will experience cardiovascular health complications; arthritis; and obesity, for sure.
Pets need time outside with other animals and to bond with their pet owners. They need to run, jump, squat and do other strength training exercises outside to feel good.
It all starts in the backyard. This is why fencing in the yard for pets is so important. Pet fencing provides a convenient location for them to do everything listed.
Pets need outdoor time. They need your help.
