I made the doll farmhouse bed and altered it into a dog bed. First one done for my German Shepherd. The second, finished one was for a friend's smaller dog.

As a guy, I tend to overlook the child stuff on this otherwise great site! But the idea to turn the child stuff for a pet is just great and a fine example of outside the box thinking. I am a dog trainer and think this is awsome! It's also a way to get a useful product out of a test run before you go full size! Again, superb!

Thanks JB! I wanted something more stylish than your typical fabric covered mattress pad (which is what I threw in there until I get motivated to sew one that fits). He loves it so I think I'm going to do another one for the bedroom because 125# is a lot of dog to share a bed with! :)

Great dog beds! I love my dog a lot. I have a two months old husky and I want the best for him. Now it`s summer and his "bathroom" is outside. But the winter is coming and I was thinking to make an indoor dog toilet. I don`t want him to go outside when it`s extra cold.

I was looking at dog beds and they can get pricey fast. For a little more money I can make her something that is more durable and stylish. I figure if it fits your dog, mine should be perfectly fine. Love the way it turned out :)
