The floor of the playhouse is the same material as the sides and top which makes it somewhat difficult to clean. The vacuum tries to suck the material in so I got to the point where I’d just wrestle the whole house outside and try to shake it clean.
I researched round rugs as an option but couldn’t find anything simple and relatively inexpensive. Thanks to a few Facebook friends though we now have a solution!
The K&H Self-Warming Cuddle Ball Dog Bed happened to be on clearance from Sierra Trading Post, marked down from $70 to $31 for the 48″ large. After measuring the floor I thought that might be a bit too large but ordering smaller would result in a gap between the bed and walls where dirt would accumulate.
It arrived less than a week after ordering and it’s definitely a big bed but I’m so happy with it: fits perfectly, the colors are nice, and it fluffs right back after the dogs have been laying on it. They were a little hesitant at first because of its height but quickly made the adjustment for getting in & out of the house. These are all pics from the day it arrived:
For recovery I moved Teddy’s crate into my bedroom. From there he can see out into the hallway across to the living room where I sit at my desk. Other than nighttime though I’ve tried to use it as little as possible. Unfortunately as he’s been feeling better he’s been acting up where he wants to jump onto my bed or the couch, or even wrestle with Doodle. At those times he ends up back in ‘jail’ and he makes it quite clear he doesn’t like that at all.
In order to get anything done around the house without constantly having to watch him I ended up ordering a Parkland Pet Playpen, which arrived yesterday. Very easy to assemble and much larger than I expected; as you can see by the photos it easily accommodates a 50 lb dog, a few dog beds, pillows, blanket. etc. It took him a bit but he finally went in on his own, and once he saw the King Ted Bed he wasted no time settling in.
