Personalizing For Your Pet

by Paul on July 22, 2014

We Americans love our pets!  Whether your preference is a canine companion, feline friend, avian acquaintance, or reptilian relative, if you have a pet, odds are favorable that you include them as part of your family.  Do you refer to yourselves as “Mommy” and “Daddy” when talking to your pet?  There’s just something about them that inspires a unique type of love.  Some of us even LOOK like our pets!  Not only do pets bring joy to our lives, they are also provide elderly companions therapeutic and health benefits; they offer unconditional love and companionship and lift our spirits when we are down.  Pet therapy is also a widely-accepted means of aiding the handicapped.

Creating a safe, comfortable environment for your pet becomes a concern when designing a custom home.  Enclosed yards and invisible fencing provide safe areas for allowing your pet room to exercise and do their do-do.  Consider investing in flexible conduit when your pet is still in the chewing stage.  Pet doors can be installed to allow self-access in and out of the home.  Showering areas are a sensible way to clean your pet before tracking muddy paws throughout the home. Beams and shelves can be installed to create interesting spaces for your cat to roam through the house.  Should your pet be a reptile, providing a heated area is necessary; fluorescent lighting and special heat sources can be designed for a proper habitat.  If you have feathered friends, their room should be designed so that they are not in direct sunlight; window blinds should be installed to keep them from flying into the reflective surface; the temperature should also be kept stable so that they do not become chilled.

Schumacher Homes can help design your pet-friendly home.  Bring us your ideas and photographs and we’ll be happy to bring your dreams to life!
