Making Outdoor Dog Beds
Outdoor dog beds – Your dog becomes a member of the family from the first day he arrives. If it is a large breed, you may decide to keep it off at times. To make your space comfortable and warm, a dog bed is the simple solution. With a little money and a little work, it is possible to make your own dog bed outdoors. Give your dog the gift of comfort, and watch him enjoy his new soft bed. Measure your dog to make sure you take the bed big enough. Measure the length of your dog when it is extended. Then measure the width of your dog when you complain. Add 4 to 6 inches for each measurement so you can have enough room to fit in the bed.
Cut the pieces of fabric to make the outdoor dog beds according to its dimensions. Canvas is a water resistant and sturdy material for outdoor use. In addition, canvas breathes and is washable. Sew the pieces of cloth together with the cloth lining inside to form a bag, but do not sew one edge of the bag together. Sewing the bag upside down the seams are not available for the chewing dog. Install a zipper along the open edge of the bag to allow removal of the filler. You can then remove the cover from the filling and wash as often as needed.

Unzip the bag and insert a thick piece of foam, at least 6 inches thick, into the bag. To control the smell and chewing insects and vermin in the bag, fill the inside with four handfuls of cedar chips. Place two handfuls on each side of the outdoor dog beds. Cedar also reduces the risk of flea infestation. Zip the bed and place in a dry place so that the water does not get absorbed through the fabric and the water enters the foam. Again to place the cedar chips periodically, and give the bag a quick wash. Proper bed maintenance will keep it handy for a long time.
