How to make your sighthound a cave bed

Post by unicornleather on Sat Feb 21, 2015 4:21 pm

Mostly sight hounds like these but my Fat Russell burrows in to it too.
I posted this post on my face book page recently, having a whippet x saluki who shivers at night in her usual bed so decides to invade my bed,then expands to three times her size, I REALLY needed to make this!
The cave pet beds I have seen for whippets and other dogs that like to curl up under something seem quite expensive, supposedly as they are a new idea.
So here's the post,
Bought a round 42 inch dog bed from costco this morning for about 16-17 pounds,as in first 2 photos then used a new cheap duvet (Tesco £4.13 for a single), sewed it into a old duvet cover. Added velcro to top of bed and bottom of duvet.
Folded duvet in half, sewed down sides leaving front open and voila, we have a Daisy dog cave bed!
Stays on the new bed base via the velcro holding it in place and she's happy as she can stretch right out and I get my bed back!
Cost me about £25 all in and it's large enough for 2 whippets.
Get a new duvet from poundland or tescos for a few quid if you haven't got on old one you can use.

I think it'd be me tucked up in the cave bed, and Dempsey on the normal bed!
