Unique dog bed ideas

From the homemade and adorable to the downright ridiculous, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to unique dog bed ideas. Let’s take a closer look at some of your options.

DIY projects

If you really want a one-of-a-kind dog bed, the only way to do it is to make your own. And believe it or not, there are plenty of items lying around the house that could easily be transformed into a dog bed.

For example, you could turn your old bedside table into a dog bed. And if you’ve got a vintage suitcase hiding away in the attic, all you need to do is add a foam cushion and some fun fabric to create a cosy space for your pet. Believe it or not, you could even paint up an old TV console and turn into a place for them to sleep.

If you’re suddenly feeling inspired to start your own DIY project, just head over to Pinterest – where you’ll discover a million and one ingenious ideas to recreate at home.

Worth a fortune

At the opposite end of the scale, you won’t believe how much some people spend on their dog beds! We all love to pamper our beloved pets, but some of us are prepared to go further than others. From diamond collars to mink fur coats, the four-legged friends of the rich and famous tend to get extra-special treatment. And it’s no different when it comes to dog beds.

Take the 22k Gold-Thread Pet Mattress as an example. The company who creates these luxurious beds originally made them for humans only – and they came with a huge price tag of $30,000. But when a customer asked for one for her Maltese, they saw a new opportunity. Today, the dog version will still set you back a whopping $3,000 – so you’ll really need to save your pennies if you’ve got your sights set on this outrageously indulgent pet bed!

But that isn’t the most expensive dog bed out there today. The Louis XV Pet Pavilion is another flamboyant dog bed that’s worth checking out. It follows the style of an 18th century French Rosewood commode – and it comes at a cost of (are you sitting down?) £15,000!

That’s funny!

Maybe you’ve got a sense of humour and you’re in search of something silly for your dog. If so, you’re in luck, because there are lots of weird and wonderful options out there on the internet.  

How about a miniature pet sofa – complete with bolstered edges and comfy cushions? They’re available in all kinds of different materials, such as faux fur, faux leather and even tweed, so you could try and match it to your own human-sized sofa. You’ve also got teepee beds where your companion can hide out. And then there are those shark-shaped and hog dog-shaped ones that are sure to make you smile.

But you just can’t beat this…
