Dog Bed DIY, Molly Mutt

Zoey pee’d on a dog bed.

Then another one.

Then another one.

Then another one.

Then another one.

Despite these set backs, potty training is actually going really well.

We have no more dog beds (besides the ones in the house.  The dogs “condo” in the garage, where they spend their time when we’re away at work (and has access to their fenced yard), has three Kuranda beds with blankets on them, but no dog beds.  They don’t need them, but I like to have that extra cushion for them.  All the beds are now gone.

What’s funny is that Sydney used to pee on dog beds too when she was a puppy.  If it was raining outside or if she was sleeping and disoriented – she’d pee on a dog bed.  Sheesh.

I told my boyfriend about the cost of dog beds, because it’s not his responsibility.  I’ve paid for every single bed over the past four years, he can pick up a few at Costco.  But the Costco beds are all round – great, but we need rectangular beds and the ones in the pet store (last resort) are pretty much crap and way too expensive.  So my boyfriend had a great idea, we’ll make them ourselves.

Step 1 – find  a mattress store that custom cuts foam.  The reason dog beds in the store are so crappy is because foam is crazy expensive; the price goes up faster than fuel (according to our mattress guy).  We purchased 2 3-inch foams and were able to choose the thickness, strength and these beds will last years.

Step 2 – order a Molly Mutt Armor-Waterproof Dog Bed Liner for each bed.  We picked ours up on Amazon.com (they’re on the way).

Step 3 – order a Molly Mutt midnight train dog duvet for each bed. We picked these up on Amazon.com too.

All together, our dog beds cost $80 each.  Yes, that’s spendy, but when compared to the $80 dog beds at the pet store, ours are awesome and they will have a long life, which I’m happy about.

Now if Zoey has an accident on the dog bed, we can wash it away and move on.  We’re going to be picking up 3 of the round dog beds in Costco for inside the house and the ones we made are for the Kuranda raised dog beds in the garage (we’ll be making 2 more).

Yayyyyy!
