Make a Pallet Dog Bed

With the countless movies, books, and websites devoted to all things canine, it’s pretty safe to assume most of us love dogs. And why shouldn’t we? Unlike the latest gadgets or gizmos, you’ll never grow tired of a dog. From the twittering, excitable infancy of a puppy to the regal lethargy of an old dog, canines are a constant source of surprises and rewards!

DIY Dog Pallet Bed

Got a pet dog bigger than you? We know finding a comfortable bed for him or she can be an expensive challenge. The clever solution, of course, is to customize a bed by doing it yourself!

And what better way than to use recycled materials — in this case, the humble pallet!

You can be as creative as you want with this DIY project because everything is really quick and easy once you’ve disassembled the pallets (if you need to). And if you can easily make one for a large breed dog you can definitely make a pallet bed for toy dogs, too!

It’s a DIY project that doesn’t require much, but will surely be appreciated by your furry friends! Hmm… now since making a dog bed from pallets is really inexpensive, how about pampering him with an outdoor ‘day bed’ too? ;)
