Make homemade items for your Lab by cometsmama (08/22/2011 14:36:37)
Like other dog breeds, Labs and Lab mixes need various items to add quality to their life. This may include a dog bed or two, a dog house or kennel, dog toys, treats, homemade remedies for your furry friend and much more. For holidays, you may want to dress up your dog - Halloween fests for dogs are increasingly common. Older Labs who have a hard time getting around may need the use of a ramp to get into a car or a boat. A dog raincoat can be very useful for keeping your dog's coat drier so you don't have to spend as much time toweling him or her off.
The good news is that if you are on a limited budget, you can make many of these items yourself from raw materials, scraps, scrounged items or thrift store purchases. You also do not have to reinvent the wheel. Make & Build Dog Stuff.com has many pages of detailed, free instructions for making just about anything!
