Get your sketch pad and tools out. Design a unique dog house for your little buddy, and then build it yourself. Watching how pieces fit together and work may change your perspective. But also, your dog just gets a really cool new place to hang out.
Invite a fellow architect and dog-lover to the park. Play with your dogs as you discuss your latest projects and future dreams. Maybe the two of you can even dream up a dog park if your town doesn’t have one. Present it to your community. Good luck!
