Our dog Pinxo is a spoiled dog, and I thought I could make a pet bed for him with some scrap wood I had at home. We rescued him from a dog shelter 11 years ago when he was just about 5 months old. Our son was by that time 8 years old and he potty trained him from the beginning because we were living in a small apartment. Here’s a very in-depth guide on How to Potty Train a Puppy Fast by Lene Kaufmann – an experienced puppy training professional- just in case you need it.
Then when it was finished our sweet bunny Manchitas joined him! He’s such a good dog that didn’t say anything about the invasion…
I don’t know how but I lost all the pictures I took while making it, so I’ll share the pictures I took when I was requested to make another for a friend. You’ll see it is not difficult at all.
The first thing we did was measure Pinxo. Then I headed to the basement, fingers crossed to find a piece of scrap wood that would fit. And I found it! It was a 70 x 50 cm piece of particleboard. I also found another big piece that would be used for the sides.
I cut the big one with these measures:
3 – 70 x 5 cm
4 – 47 x 5 cm
5 – 10 x 4 cm
I nailed the boards together and added some wheels. The girls helped me to paint it light gray.
Then Miss A dry brushed with some black paint.
I also transferred the name of the dog, if you want to see the process you will find it on this tutorial, I promise it is really easy! We added some cushions and a blanket, and it was ready!! As Pinxo wasn’t available for the picture, we used a substitute 😉
Pinxo is really happy with his pet bed, and I know Terry is happy too!
