Stop from Wandering: You need to make sure your dogs or cats remain inside the yard so that they cannot wander around in the locality.

The best option is to put up a fence but if it looks unsightly then you can also use underground fence will is visually appealing and serves the purpose.
Recycled Products: At the time of purchasing a dog collar, make sure it is of natural material like bamboo or hemp. Similarly, toys can also be of recycled material and the containers for storing as well as serving the food.
Organic Food: Always purchase food for your dogs and cats that is organic as well as do not have any additives. The benefit of organic food is that it does not have any of the harmful antibiotics or hormone supplements in it.
Waste bags: At the time, you take your dog or cat for a walk then you need to clean up the mess they leave. Ideally, you should use biodegradable waste bags, which easily decompose and thus are good for the environment.
Repellents: Utilize natural repellents for flea and ticks which are better than the toxic chemicals and less harmful for your pets as well as the environment.
