The Columbus Dog Connection rescue group has a spiffy tutorial on how to make your own elevated dog bed out of PVC pipe like the beds listed in this post on how to keep your pets cool. I prefer the Kuranda Dog Bed, the fabric is inside the pipes so the dogs can’t chew on it.
Thank you for showing how to make the elevated dog beds I have 9 dogs all are going to have one got 2 mad so far got to go get more pipe.
Conduit pipe (its gray) is stronger than regular pvc if your wanted to make the same bed for a larger dog.
Just FYI, Kuranda beds are the same, except that they fit another larger diameter piece of pvc pipe over the pvc pipe with the fabric.
What if you build the bed to spec and then added a bigger size pvp pipe with split over top of original pipe with the cloth on.
I teach at a prison and the inmates in the Vocational Department are going to build 100 beds which we will donate to local shelters! These beds are so inexpensive to make and allow you to be creative with the design, you aren’t stuck with a square.
Trying to help a rescue shelter in another city with beds, can’t believe the retail price for a kuranda! If you plan ahead then you have enough time to build and adjust things before the glue sets.
You can find smaller ones, but then you’d have to keep the dog weight at under 45 pounds to be safe.
I also made a dog bunk bed in true bunk bed style by repainting a table upside down fitting it with fabric covered pillows and finials on the top.
I think this project would be fun as a team building excersize, fun for families (which is what we did) fun for schools, or daycare teams.
Curtains on the sides and my dogs are living large in style… be creative and have fun — plus save money!!
I have donations from family members from Georgia, Florida, and California, even though the beds are being built in Western New York!
