If you want to make a fun and exciting pet bed, recycled suitcases offer a number of possibilities. You can also make crate pads and create a glorious resting place for your dog. Apart from designing their place to sleep, you can stir your dog’s daily routines by making interesting toys for them. For example, you can freeze your dog’s toys into a bucket and let them lick their way to their toys. Also, if you want a sturdy dog toy which cannot be easily destroyed, you can make a toy out of old jeans. All you need to do is cut the lower part of your jeans and tie them in a strong nut. Apart from this, there are other ways of making rope toys to play tug of war with your pet.

Fashion

As a loving pet owner, it is likely that you want your dog to look great on all occasions. For example, you can make a leash out of dyed cotton rope, which will make your dog look cute and stylish every time you go to the park. Another idea is a cool collar made of dress shirts that will give your pet a unique look. They can wear it every day or use it for some special event. However, if you want your dog to look a little tougher, you can make a studded collar. A dashing bow tie is another thing that will make your dog stand out. To make it easier, it can be attached to your dog’s already existing collar. You can even make them a coat out of an old woolen shirt. However, if you are not inclined on any type of manufacturing, there is a wide selection of ready-made pet products that you can adjust to your needs.

Food

You can make a number of treats for your pet. Here you can find plenty of recipes which will make your dog very happy. You can also make food to help them overcome an ache. Pumpkin is known to have a soothing effect on the stomach. You can make pumpkin biscuits for your dog when they have a bellyache. However, if you want to avoid the mess they make while eating, there is a simple solution. Just lift the plates off the ground using chairs.

Travel

If you are going on a trip and wish to take your dog with you, there are practical ways to travel together. You can start from scratch and sew a travel carrier, or you can make one of old tote bags. If a bag is too heavy for you, you can push your dog in a carriage made of a baby stroller. However, if your wish your hands to be free, you can make a sling and carry your dog wherever you want.

We all like to spoil our pets as much as possible. They are often treated as members of the family and they fully deserve this attention. There are plenty of ways to improve your dog’s life – from fashionable pieces of clothing and travel bags, to innovative bed designs and special treats. Choose ideas that suit you best and make a perfect surrounding for your loyal companions.

These are some great tips, thanks for sharing! I had no idea that you could carry your dog anywhere using a sling/carrier! You might get some stares, but I think it is a great idea for people with small dogs! :)

These are so awesome. I have two dogs and I sometimes am not able to spoil them at the pet store like I really want to. This way I can do it more often. Thank you so much for sharing this.

I have old jeans, and being the crafty one, I've been trying to figure out what to do with them, this is a perfect idea to use for a pet toy!

Love these woofs?
