Dulce's Dog Cave

Dulce has had many sleeping arrangements in her two years with us.  She started out in a soft-sided crated which she eventually chewed apart.  Then she switched to a dog bed (which she still sleeps in during the day now) but she woke us up early every morning.  Then she slept in our bed for a while (which allowed us to sleep in) but she sprawls out taking up too much space and dog hair in the bed is no good.  We've finally found a solution that works for all of us.

When we moved to Korea, we bought her a travel crate for the plane ride.  As it turned out, she liked the crate and would take naps in it during the day.  We moved it into the bedroom and it became the perfect sleeping quarters for her.  We found out that if we cover the crate, she sleeps soundly in "her cave" through the night and stays quiet until we let her out in the morning... no matter how late we sleep in!

Dulce's doggy blanket did the job of covering her crate for a while, but I decided the crate needed a more stylish cover.  I used some soft fabric I bought at Happy Quilt, some ribbon I bought at the Yangjae Flower Market, and some iron-on decorations I bought Michael's craft store on my recent trip back to the States.  The result is something that looks somewhat-decorative sitting in the corner of our bedroom :)



Embroidered iron-on letters for her name

Some decorative bows

Our last name is Green so I bought a large iron-on that says "Live, Love, Green" :)

  1. Keeping a pet may be one of the likings that you have, but only the few people who consider it a passion take care of every big or small provision of the pet. Providing a separate place to the dog for resting is done but if you want to pamper him well, get your pet one of the luxury small dog beds
    that are available.

  3. A large orthopedic dog bed will not only make your dogs life easier, but yours as well. These are very easy to clean and can be washed the same as any other bed.
