Next, fold multiplied by four the height and height of the box, add 10-20 centimeters.
  2. On the inside of the box (along its length) with the help of a stapler, attach the first part, on top of it attach the second (in width). The bottom can be covered with a layer of cotton or other soft material to make it more comfortable.
  3. Now a piece of fabric can be attached to the bottom from the back to close it completely.

  • scissors;
  • thread and needle.

Sunbed from a sweater

If you have an old sweater or sweatshirt, then safely use such a thing to make a comfortable and original lounger.

Here's what you need:

  • an old sweater or sweatshirt;
  • soft material for stuffing;
  • thread and needle;
  • scissors;
  • old little pillow.

  2. Now put a pillow on the bottom and sew a sweater over the bottom edge. The foundation is ready.

  4. Through the sleeves, fill the future sides with soft material, so that they are rather dense.
  5. Now lift the sides and fasten them around the edges of the sleeves.

Mini Tent

To make a mini-tent for a small dog, prepare the following materials and accessories:

  • thick wire;
  • plywood sheet;
  • scissors or office knife;
  • unnecessary T-shirt;
  • awl;
  • needle and thread.


  1. First you need to cut the base out of plywood.
  2. Next, make a frame. To do this, take a piece of wire, bend it with an arc so that it is placed diagonally from one corner to the other. Secure it.To do this, make holes in the corners of the base with an awl, thread the tips of the arc through them and bend them (you can fix them with staples using a stapler).
  3. Also secure the second arc.
  4. Now place the frame in a T-shirt so that the neck is on one side (this is the main entrance), and the sleeves are on the sides. The bottom can either be tied with a rope, or cut to the size of the frame and sew.

Plain pillow

You can make a litter, for example, from an old pillow, which has long become not so soft and almost flat, which is why you are not using it. Pet she certainly will like.

You can also sew the bench independently. To do this, sew a bag from any fabric, fill it with some soft material (a sintepon or holofiber from an old jacket will work fine).


Some tips:

  • Do not forget to measure the dog so that the litter fits to its size.
  • To make couches are better from dense materials, they are more practical. For example, denim is perfect.
  • Show the litter immediately to your pet, offer to test it in action. If he ignores her, then, probably, he did not like something.Perhaps the pet does not like the smell or color.
  • It is advisable not to make the couch too bright, perform it in calm and neutral tones.
  • All materials are pre-cleaned to remove unpleasant odors. This is especially true of old fabrics, they must be washed.
  • Make bedding as much as possible from quality materials, especially if the pet is allergic.
  • You can make two beds at once to change them periodically or place them in different rooms.

Now your dog will definitely know his place and enjoy it.
