Lacking space at home? Create a happy space for your pet
We know you love your pets. But managing enough space for them in the house is often impossible. That is when you should consider putting them somewhere safe within your premises, if not technically indoors. Like the garage for example. Your garage definitely has lots of extra space even after you park your car (and storing your unused items too!).
Tips to keep your pets safest in the garage
Now when you have finally decided to make this garage home for your pet, you have to ensure that it is the safest and most comfortable for them.
- A secure door — First and foremost, you will require a garage with a door if you are keeping your pet inside. Apart from providing maximum security for your vehicle, this gate is required to ensure that your pet stays inside this space and not move around in the open when you are out of the home.
- Garage carpets —Your garage floors can be very hard and cold for a pet to rest in comfortably. And the best option is to add a garage carpet in NZ, Unreal Lawns provide you with the best-in-class garage carpets which are not only comfortable and durable but also hold an aesthetic appeal.

These are very easy to clean and would be really comfortable for them regardless of the weather outside.
- Insulation is necessary — Yes, we agree that your decision of adding a garage carpet was awesome. But that doesn't leave out the importance of having the space insulated properly. You’ll have to insulate this space properly so that the extreme heat and chilled winter doesn’t make much difference.
- Keep the toxins away —Normally, most garages contain lots of toxic substances and liquids that are regularly used for the car’s cleanliness and maintenance. But you know your pet -- it will try to pounce on everything and even try to consume them. Don’t let that happen! Place such stuff in a safer storage space that is covered so that your pet cannot access it even if they are stored in the garage.
- Secure the heavy items — There can be lots of heavy objects related to your car in your garage. This includes your extra tires, engine parts, and even the discarded items of your car’s upholstery that you otherwise store in the garage. Some people also prefer storing stuff like vacuum cleaners, lawnmowers, etc. in their garage. If your pet is really mischievous, it wouldn't wait too long to fiddle with them and even get injured in this process. You should always keep them secured in a proper storage space in one corner or create a shelf at a height where your pet can’t reach easily.
Now that your garage is really safe and comfortable for your pet, remember to store some food for them, put some water, and also keep some toys for them to be busy with.
