Pet Friendly Plants

Dog on grass Pet friendly plants


Today is International Dog Day. A time to celebrate all the doggos. We are dog people here at Green Image Lifestyle therefore having Pet Friendly Plants in our home is a must.

We have a very beloved French Bulldog, Boss (pictured).  And he that is exactly what his name implies, or he seems to think he is anyway.  He is a great-natured dog who just wants to be inside next to you and under your feet 24/7.  He loves the kids and also loves to try and get away from them when he’s had enough.  He is an exceptional snorer who can be heard through doors and walls and is also known for awake snoring.  The life of a bulldog.

Your pet is part of your family, therefore a permanent fixture in the household, and we don’t want them to get sick or suffer because of plant choices.  This is why we have curated a list of Pet Friendly Plants (not just for the dogs) as a go-to for your home.

I have linked Australian Plants Online as this means you can order plants straight to your door.  You don’t have to wander around the nursery aimlessly not knowing what is what.
