Summary: Many dog owners are creating a personalized bed instead of opting to purchase one.
These days, you can find every type of dog bed that you can dream of on the Internet. With so many varieties available to you at the touch a button, you can pick and choose whatever you want.
However, while nothing beats a durable bed, some models might not have everything that you want inside of them. This is where building a dog bed by yourself can come in handy.
Selecting the Right Fabric
It’s important not to pick any type of fabric for your dog bed as some materials may not be as sturdy as others. Look for a more durable fabric that can also provide comfort – so your dog doesn’t get stuck with a brick-like feel.
Don’t Forget the Cushions
Depending on your dog’s health, you can place nearly every type of cushion inside the bed. The reason behind mentioning the health aspect is because some dogs suffer from conditions that make their joints especially sensitive to anything other than an orthopedic material. Manufacturers like The Foam Factory or any other foam producer can supply you with all types of foam – depending on whom you decide to shop from. Take note that some foam products that are sold will require you to cut them into the specific shape and size that you need.
Making a dog bed from scratch isn’t the most difficult task in the world, but it does require a ton of care during the process. Remember, your dog might not approve of your handiwork and it could end up being tossed in the garbage after going through 12 rounds of punishment. It’s important that you acclimate your dog beforehand, so he understands that the bed’s cushion foam isn’t a chew toy, but a peaceful resting place that he’ll sleep on.
