Give your pets their own ‘personal space’ by building a dog bunk bed!

DIY Dog Bunk Bed

Whether it’s during a run through the park or after a treat, there’s no feeling like looking at your pet and getting an adoring stare right back. Scientists say the hormones behind the bond that forms between pet owners and dogs are the same as those that create the attachment between new parents and their babies.

Your pets do a lot more than just make you feel happiness and love, too! They can help lower your cholesterol, relieve stress, and boost your self-esteem.

Got more than one fur baby in the household? Then a bunk bed is ideal for providing your pets a comfortable corner in which to curl up and sleep. And it’s easy to build one!

Some pets get along with each other really well, while some fight quite often like brothers and sisters. No matter how your fur babies treat each other, they always deserve to have their own, ‘personal space’.

Dog Bunk Bed Designs

A bunk bed doesn’t only allow your pets some alone time. It also keeps the space occupied at a minimum since one bed is on top of the other. So if you’ve got two or more dogs but have limited space, a DIY dog bunk bed is the solution for you!

Building it yourself keeps your expenses low, too! You can use pallets, logs and other reclaimed timber. You can even repurpose and modify a crib or any old furniture you’re thinking of replacing!
