Yup, It’s a Dog Shelf!

Well, I was sitting here watching TV a few days ago, with three dogs on the couch and more wanting to be on the couch, when I thought you know, dogs like to be on the backs of couches and our dogs are no exception. So why not put a shelf back there, make it comfy for them, and let them have their way? I proposed the idea to my husband and he emphatically agreed and so we put about to make a shelf for the dogs to lay on behind the couch. I had to move the laundry hamper out of the way as we built it, as well as the table and my laptop and some other stuff, but it worked out well. This first picture is of my husband putting it together. We have had this wood for a while, got it free a few years ago, and it’s coming in quite handy!

I tried to crop myself out of this picture because I looked horrible! LOL.  But the dogs don’t really care. And, as we suspected, Muffit is the first dog to take a liking to the dog shelf behind the couch.  He climbed right up there and laid down like he knew it was his spot.

We want to get some better padding up there, though. Because one reason the couch is so popular is because it’s cushy and soft and comfortable. Of course it’s also popular because it’s where we, the humans, like to sit and everywhere we like to sit must be the best place.

LOL yeah we know, we know… our house is made for the dogs.  Well, maybe for us first, for our own comfort, and then for the dogs. And yeah yeah, we know, our dogs are spoiled rotten. However, they know they are not boss (most of them know this lol) and our pack gets along quite well.

So here ya go, pack! A comfy high shelf to lay on!

  1. What a great idea!! I am glad to see that the dogs are already taking advantage of their new space. I love to see other dogs that are treated like part of the family rather than just dogs!

  2. That’s a great Idea. My couch is getting a permanent indentation where the dogs lay.
