DIY Dog Bed: Frugal & Easy

Do you have a small to medium-sized dog? Try this super simple DIY dog bed for them.
Chances are you already have everything you need around the house and and there’s no sewing or craftiness required!

This is so incredibly simple I almost didn’t think to share it, except that my Pug loves it so much. 

All you need is a pillow and pillowcase. You can buy a new pillow and new pillowcase if you want, but if you have any old ones, this a great way to recycle on top of making your pet happy!

Put them together and throw the fleece blanket on top. If you want, you could probably sew the fleece into a pillowcase, but my Abby likes her blanket separate. And I promised no sewing, so you don’t have to.

See? Happy pug!

This is Abby’s favorite doggy bed ever. Maybe it’s because it has our scent so she feels closer to us. Whatever the reason, I’m grateful because it’s saving my couch. Before this bed, Abby’s favorite “bed” was my fluffy couch cushions, which I did not like since she squished them down and got them dirty.

But not anymore, thanks to this easy DIY dog bed.

  3. oooooh I love your dog!! We just got a Pug/Boston mix and he is just so darn cute!!! This is a great idea and I think I will definitely do it.

  4. Very simple, and a great idea for old pillows! I have bigger dogs, but I could also sew a few pillows together!

    Love your dog by the way, he’s adorable :)

  5. What a great idea &What an ADORABLE dog!!

  6. I always use one of our old pillows for this. My little dogs just go nuts if they can lay on one of our old ones. Before I barred them from the bed, that’s where they would lay in the first place.

  7. We did the same thing for our dogs. It’s their favorite. but now they think all pillows are for them. haha

  8. Aww! Abby is adorable! Our girl, Lucy, has a bed quite similar to this hidden in the entertainment center! LOL. Whenever there is too much noise for her, she goes in and hides. LOL. We pretend we don’t know where she is.
