LOL! I know the feeling...I have a Greyhound that has decided that two thirds of my bed is his!

Both our animals sleep inside. Alfie has the bed (as he is usually asleep all night) and Mao sleeps wherever she likes. During the day it's a sunny spot, at night it's any number of places lol I often wake up to Alfie in between me and my husband, under the sheets with his head on a pillow.....

Re: Do your pets sleep indoors?

Anyone making a new dog kennel for a furry friend this winter? 

 

I reckon this would be a great project to tackle before the really cold weather arrives.

Re: Do your pets sleep indoors?

We have a new pup and is growing super quick. He currently has an old very dilapidated kennel although still waterproof etc...but I would so love to build him a new bed with just a few things in the wish list.
#1 A hinged roof to clean the kennel or to simply replace the blankets and so I can remove the day bed easily which is about 1200mm x 800mm
#2 To be built on a standard pallet so it can be moved with a tractor for example, as we live on a farm
#3 Would love to be able to insulate the entire kennel including floor, walls and ceiling.
I think I could build it if I could watch a video as it is easier than reading instructions. I have all the necessary tools, so would love to hear from anyone out there that has built a similar kennel??
Cheers,
Barbara

I hope a Workshop member will be able to assist you @Baretta11.

 

In the meantime, could you please post a photo on Show off your pet? I'm sure the community would love to see your new puppy!

Re: Do your pets sleep indoors?

We bought our small/medium size dog a canvas tent like kennel that has a frame and is slightly off the ground. Her bed is inside that and she seems to love it and is cozy and warm. We also put a jacket on her just for night time (just in case). We live in Sydney and the weather recently has been freeeezing
