Canadians love their pets. It has been estimated that approximately 35% of Canadian households have a dog, and 38% have a cat (Ipsos Reid, 2011). We share our homes with these wonderful animals,
as well as a host of other intriguing pets. They enrich our lives, but they also pose some unique challenges to the functioning and maintenance of our spaces.

Jessica will help pet owners to understand the environmental requirements for dogs at different developmental stages. She will also offer strategies for teaching your animals to respect your home and furnishings. Margaret will present some design ideas to accommodate the needs of your pet for sleep, food and play.
