Pattern of a house for a small dog
Once, a wonderful dog of the Chihuahua breed visited us. And Jack and I decided to sew for her the same wonderful house as Jack’s.
When I sewed Jekusik a house, he constantly monitored me and checked if I was doing everything right. Ridiculous my favorite.
When cutting out parts from foam rubber, you do not need to leave any allowances. Make measurements strictly according to the pattern.
But when transferring the pattern to the fabric, be sure to leave allowances for the seams, depending on the thickness of the foam rubber. I left about 3 cm on each side.
Another small nuance. When cutting out a house, you can make a one-piece piece: roof-wall-floor-wall-roof (see pattern), sew on the fabric on top and just additionally sew the joints on a typewriter. But I don’t advise you to do that. Why? The reason is as follows. With a one-piece part (with sewing of the joints), the parts will “pull” each other and the house can “lead” (option 1). It is better to cut out all the details and cover them with fabric separately, and only then sew together from the inside of the house (option 2). This will make the walls more straight and even.
And further. It is best to sew a kind of “covers” of fabric on foam rubber blanks, and then additionally from the outside sew the detail along the entire perimeter with an additional line. So later it will be more convenient to sew the parts together.
Here is such a simple pattern of a house for a dog I got. A house made according to this pattern folds easily. Thus, it is convenient to take it with you if you are going somewhere for a long time. Away, in its usual place, the dog will feel much calmer.
Well, he just can’t part with his house. Thinks that I’ll take him!
Unfortunately, I was in a great hurry to sew the house to give it to Juzik for the New Year. Therefore, I did not have time to immediately make detailed instructions for making a house. But I still have some foam rubber, and finally I made the same gift to my friends’ little chihuahua.
Jekusik really liked this New Year’s present! Now he often sits or sleeps in his house. He also loves to hide his toys there from us. And if we play, and he is hiding there from me, then I do not get Jack out of his “den”. He must know that he is safe there and that no one will disturb him there. His home is his fortress!
I hope that you will be able to sew such a wonderful “real estate” for your pet.!
Pattern of a house for a dog
If you want to please your pet with a cozy “nest”, you will probably need a dog house pattern. Every pet (even if he lives in an apartment) should have a cozy place where he can take a break from the hustle and bustle, and just hide from the bright electric light in the evening, if the owner does not sleep and stays up with his household chores.
This article for the most part will deal with the construction of exactly the pattern for the house. Well, I will publish a detailed master class later.
I would like to note that this pattern is suitable for owners of dogs and other breeds. But you have to play a little with the dimensions (make it larger or smaller, depending on the breed and size of the pet).
This is how a house pattern for a Jack Russell Terrier dog or tails about the same size as our Jack looks like.
- The pet house must be free. The more space in it, the more comfortable your ponytail will be.
- When making a house, use only natural fabrics and materials: chintz, fleece, linen, cotton, jeans, tarpaulin, velor or artificial fur. For filler: synthetic winterizer, foam rubber, batting, down. Never buy synthetic fabrics. Synthetics in contact with the animal’s hair will be very electrified and “beat” your dog with an electric current. Your ponytail won’t want to live in such a dwelling.
- When choosing a material for making a house, consider the degree of your pet’s shaggy. A dog with a long coat will feel hot in a house made of fluffy fabric. In addition, hairs will constantly clog into the fleecy fabric, which will be difficult to remove.
- Considering that all four-legged “shilopopiki” love to “dig”, “dig” and nibble on their lounger, when making a house, use only durable fabrics, threads and accessories.
- This soft house made of foam rubber is suitable for small dogs, whose weight does not exceed 20 kg. For more massive rocks, it is better to make a house from more durable materials (for example, wood).
- The construction of foam rubber will be more practical and compact to use if the details of the house are connected with a zipper. So the home can be easily disassembled for cleaning and transportation.
- Do not get carried away with unnecessary decor. The fewer the various parts, the easier it will be to clean the house, and the nibbler will not have an extra reason to bite off something.

Before sewing a house, you need to measure the dog. The bottom should be equal to the size that the dog is lying down with legs outstretched. The half of the house where the roof is located should correspond to the size of the curled up animal. These are the minimum dimensions. If your area allows more, of course, the house can be made larger.
To build such a house for a small dog, you will need 2 m of tapestry, 1 m 10 cm of monochromatic rep, matching the color of the tapestry. Also a sheet of foam rubber measuring 1 mx 2 m, 4 cm thick and 2 m of clothesline.

DIY dog house
Any dog, no matter how small or large, needs its own house! Depending on where your pet lives, in the house or on the street, you can make different housing options for him.
When an animal lives indoors, many owners give it space on a rug or mattress. But if you have some free time. build your pet a real house! Believe me, he will be very grateful to you, because all dogs love to be in hiding.
How to build a house for a dog in the form of a booth?
A small booth can be made from plywood or thin boards. It is better to paint the walls of the dog house with paint so that it is convenient to wipe them while cleaning. Select the size of the booth taking into account that the dog can lie there freely.
When an animal lives on the street, the design of the booth must be thought out to the smallest detail. First of all, you need to decide on the place where the booth will stand. This place should give your pet a good view of the entire yard and be dry.
It is better that the outdoor dog house is built of wood. In order for your four-legged friend to be in it in winter, it is necessary to provide for double walls in the design, between which there will be insulation. The most important thing in building a doghouse. make walls without gaps, because drafts will clearly harm the health of your pet. Make the floor in the doghouse comfortable. Cover it with a warm mat. In summer, cover the entrance with a tarp. this will keep the booth dry during rains and in winter. felt, this material keeps heat well in the kennel. The roof of the street booth is better made of slate or upholstered with roofing iron.
DIY dog house
The easiest way is to use an old suitcase for this business. Legs can be attached along the edges for greater stability along the edges of the product (from an old cabinet or simply purchase them in the furniture fittings department). Inside the suitcase, you need to sew or pick up an existing pillow of suitable dimensions. As a filler, you can use a synthetic winterizer, which is sewn into a pillowcase made of dense fabric of a suitable color.
You can also sew real booth houses, soft and cozy. You can choose the material for trimming and decor, based on the characteristics of your room, and by attaching a dense leatherette handle to the house, you can easily transfer it from place to place.
Having decided to sew a personal dwelling for a pet, it is worth remembering a few nuances. It is better if the floor of the house is not made of foam or foam rubber, but of polyurethane foam. this material can repeat and memorize the contours of the dog’s body, it will be convenient for both puppies and already elderly pets. The litter should be thick, but at the same time tightly tightened into a fabric cover: young dogs love to chew on anything that gets on the tooth, so that the foam will become a welcome prey for the puppy and source of considerable problems for the owner. Make a house “for growth”, since young dogs grow very quickly, the area of the house should correspond to the size of an adult pet.
If you have small children in your house, the frame for the house should be as strong as possible: kids can often use the dog’s “home” as a chair or play space and accidentally injure the animal. The house should be in a secluded place, away from drafts. Do not position the structure so that the exit is located against a wall or other obstacle that could interfere with the animal.
To create a full-fledged house for a dog, you will need polyurethane foam or a hard sponge, a rug, pillowcases, Velcro and, of course, sewing accessories.
- Using a measuring tape, take measurements from the dog so you know how tall and wide the house is to make. The dog should not just curl up in a ball, but also stand in full growth and, if necessary, turn around its axis.
- The entire perimeter of the house is upholstered with polystyrene, the length and width of each mat is determined by the measurements that you take from the dog.
- Old pillowcases or cuts of unnecessary fabric will be required in order to hide the styrofoam from your pet’s teeth. The best option is these synthetic microfiber.
- On the floor, before covering the polyurethane foam with a pillowcase, you should put an oilcloth or other waterproof material. you will save the floor of the structure from unpleasant surprises.
- Velcro is sewn to the pillowcases on the edges of the foam plates: make a mark first, there should be a Velcro on every 15 cm of fabric. After connecting the mats into a single house, you will receive a dog’s home with a floor, ceiling and three walls.
- The entrance to the house can be either closed or open. You can make an entrance with a curtain made of thin fabric, fixing it with the same Velcro.
- After that, you can call your pet to try out a new abode. Put your favorite puppy toy or treat inside the house. this simple action will help you get used to it.
You can make a house for a dog in a different way.
This is a semi-open bed, quite cozy and roomy. We bring to your attention a pattern and a step-by-step master class on how to make an excellent house for a pet with your own hands.
When choosing fabric for upholstery, give preference to dense materials. tapestry, microfiber and others. You will need fabric, reps in that material, rope, foam rubber (thickness may vary, on average it is 3-4 cm).
The patterns are applied on graph paper and cut out mirror-symmetrically. For small dogs, a bottom is enough, with a diameter of up to half a meter.
The darts are manually sewn over the edge, just like the back seams. A bottom pattern is inserted into the foam “roof”, after which the parts are connected and stitched.
Two details are cut out of plain fabric and tapestry: for the inner and outer upholstery, they are made mirror-symmetrical. Leave an allowance of 1-2 cm, then grind the darts (they are indicated by wavy lines in the diagram). Seams are made 1 cm from the edge.
The top seam is connected to the details under the number 5 (blanks for interior decoration of the house). They are swept away, and a decorative edging is sewn for finishing the bottom. An oblique inlay, 3 centimeters wide, is cut out of a monochromatic material to match the color of the main one. The cord is inserted into the fold of the tape and tied as close as possible to the formed roller. it is best to use a paw for sewing in zippers. The edging is stitched to the lower edge of the outer part of the trim, and the bottom of the house is also marked.
The cover is put on a foam rubber frame, all the details of the finishing fabric are carefully straightened. The seam is located on the outer surface of the roof. All fabric parts are combined with foam rubber elements so that there are no distortions, after which they are fixed manually. A round tapestry piece is placed on the foam bottom and trimmed.
The dart at the very end will be convex. it can be sent and smoothed. Do not sew the inner bottom to the foam base. just tuck the fabric more tightly between other parts. you will greatly facilitate your care of the animal house. If you have taken thicker foam, adjust the pattern along the way, increase the allowances, but try to keep the foam out of sight. dogs love to gnaw it. This house is a great option for small and short-haired dogs. Additionally, it can be insulated with faux fur or padding polyester.
You can make the structure simpler. it will be a kind of tent house. To do this, take two wire hangers and cross-connect the rods. As a floor, you can take a pillow or a sheathed piece of foam rubber. a wire frame is attached to it using adhesive tape or Velcro. The fabric is pulled over the frame, its edges are carefully tied and sewn up.
Such a house will appeal to all four-legged pets: both dogs and cats.
Another interesting and affordable option is to sew a dog bed. This is a summer version of the “sleeping place”, which captivates with its comfort and at the same time ease of manufacture.
Start with measurements: determine what length and width of the product you need, as well as the height of the sides. For stuffing, you will need a synthetic winterizer, for sewing. 2-2.5 meters of dense fabric. Cut out a large circle (two parts), this will be a useful area for your dog, conditionally divide it into 10-12 parts, fill with padding polyester. Then cut out smaller circles, roll them up with a tube, stuff with padding polyester and sew along the perimeter of the main workpiece. they will serve as bumpers. However, you can go the other way: take unnecessary terry towels or an old sweater, cut it open and simply spread it around the perimeter, securely fixing it and pre-filling it with padding polyester. Additionally, you can make a special pillow for the couch. then your pet will sleep even sweeter.
An elegant house for a dog can be made with your own hands and from a regular carrying cage. You will need a dense and beautiful fabric, braid and buttons or ordinary Velcro. The cuts for the inner and outer upholstery are sewn along the bottom and side sides, and then they are turned out onto the front surface and the unstitched area is carefully patched. Sew the fabric around the perimeter of the cage ceiling, attach three walls to them using braid or Velcro, the fourth wall will serve as the entrance to the cage. it should be free. Lay a thick pillow or foam rubber upholstered in dense fabric on the floor: the house for your pet is ready!
DIY dog house
Friends, I hasten to tell and show you how to sew a soft house for a dog with your own hands. As they say, less than a year has passed. And now, finally, I “got my hands on it”, and the master class is ready!
It is quite possible that more than one year would have passed before I would have made this wonderful house. By the way, all the components were also ready for a long time. I just couldn’t bring myself to sit down at the sewing machine. But, fortunately, a wonderful girl Liechka, Chihuhua breed, became my motivator. Well, I couldn’t leave such a beauty without my own hut.
It may seem difficult to make a dog house yourself. In fact, it is very simple to make it. It only takes a little time, a little patience and a great desire. And it will take not so much time to make a house.
I have already written about all this in detail in the article: Pattern of a house for a dog. By the way, in the same place you can take the very pattern of a house for a dog.
And this master class is a kind of continuation, or addition of previously published material.
So, as I mentioned above, the foam rubber components of the house were already ready for a long time. Jack and Leah and I had only to sheathe them with fabric and put everything together.
All participants are assembled. The size of the house has been tested and approved by the most important regulatory inspector. You can start our master class.
Master class: a house for a dog or cat
Each foam piece must be sheathed with a cloth. Therefore, for each foam part, we cut out two fabric parts. Later we will sew them together.
Fabric parts should be about 2-3 cm larger than foam. This is necessary so that when stitching we have a supply of fabric to take into account the height of the foam.
We fold the fabric parts together “face to face” and sew together on three sides. Where indicated by the arrow (on the fourth side), you do not need to stitch.
We should get a kind of case. Something like a pillowcase. We turn the case out onto the front side. And we put into it exactly the foam part for which the specific cover was sewn.
We will sew it a little differently. Next, I will show how.
So, we put every detail of the foam rubber into our “own” case. And now we need to sew up the “open” side of the cover.
The next stage in the manufacture of the house will be an important point, to which I want to draw special attention.
Each (except for the front wall) foam part is already in its case. Further, from the front side, along the entire perimeter of each part, we lay a finishing line, retreating from the edges by about 1 cm.As shown by the red dotted line in the photo.
You ask: what is it for? And we need this in order to make it easier for us to sew all parts of the dog house together. We will sew them exactly according to these lines. So the foam will not suffer, and it will be easier for a sewing machine to cope with such a thickness.
And one more plus of such stitching of parts. the sides of the house will be located at right angles to each other. I also write about this in detail in the first part: Pattern of a house for a dog. Be sure to read and see pictures of the possible consequences of other stitching of parts.
So, all the details of the dog house are sewn in the same way as described above. And we go further, and proceed to the front wall of the house.
Just like for everyone else, we need to cut two fabric pieces.
We put them together “face to face”.
We cut out the “window”. Seam allowances should be approximately 2-3 cm.
Further, along the entire perimeter, we sew a hole for a kind of window (entrance). The distance from the edge for the seam should be approximately 1 cm. As shown in the photo. With the second arrow, I showed the contour of the foam part.
Thus, we again have an allowance, with the help of which we leave a supply of fabric at the height of the foam rubber.
We put all this “construction” on the foam rubber part of the front wall of our house.
And then, the top layer of fabric, through the hole, we kind of turn inside. We wrap the top layer of fabric under the bottom of the foam part. We straighten all the seams well. In the photo, I tried to show it in detail.
And along the entire perimeter we sew along the edges of the front wall of the house.
Sew the edges on a sewing machine. And, just like in all other parts, we lay a finishing line.
Well, all the details of the soft house for the dog are ready. Now we will stitch them together gradually.
All small tailed tomboys want to get into a new, beautiful teremok as soon as possible.
To begin with, from the seamy side (from the inside of the future house), we sew the base (bottom), front and back walls.
In the same way, from the seamy side, we sew together the roof and side walls of the house.
Well, the outline of the little house for little Liechka is already looming.
Again, from the seamy side (from the inside), we sew the front wall of the house with the roof. And the back wall of the house with a roof, as shown in the photo with a red dotted line.
After stitching, you get such a funny house with wings.!
Well, the final stage: we stitch together the remaining non-sewn parts.
Do not forget that we do all the stitching manipulations from inside the house. Well, all the seams are stitched. Further, through the window, we simply turn the house out onto the front side. This is not difficult to do, since we used soft materials that bend well.
Well, our dog house is completely ready. Leah immediately climbed into it and did not want to go out. And Jack walked in circles, and also dreamed of seeing what was inside.
And he succeeded! As they say, in cramped quarters, but not offended. The main thing is terrier persistence. Even if the size of the house is too small, you still need to.
Leah and I barely drove this awkward terrier out of her house. I didn’t want to go out in any! Apparently the house turned out to be wonderful!
Now every dog has its own wonderful and cozy house.!
If in the process of making a house for your woolen friend (dog or cat) you have any questions, be sure to write. Let’s try to figure it out together.
Irina shared such a new idea of a house for a dog or a cat. House in the form of a pipe made of old jeans and a sheet of foam rubber.
“Cheap and angry and forces with minimum skills. In every house there is a bunch of jeans, who take care of them at the dacha, and who are sorry to throw them away. Here is a worthy application! “
Really great idea? Personally, I really like!

It’s pretty easy to knit such a jumpsuit. The main thing is to follow the techniques that were used to create the proposed model. Of course, each knitted product must be tailored to the individual parameters of the dog.
Having knitted the required length of the throat, add the loops in two steps. It is better to add loops in pairs, then you will not confuse the drawing. But don’t get carried away! Don’t make the collar too long.
Next, we need to make the slots for the sleeves. To do this, we divide the resulting canvas into three parts. The middle part will consist of 102 loops (these loops will become edge for a while).
Now you need to decide how to beautifully complete the jumpsuit. If the resulting fabric easily overlaps the back, then you do not need to crochet the edges additionally. But if the product is slightly smaller than needed, the edges need to be tied with two double crochets.
This jumpsuit is perfect for large dogs that go on an expedition, hike or long trip in the mountains.
Making a. To do this, sweep it on the main part, fold the valve elements from the lining and main material with the front parts inward and sweep the sides of the valve. In the areas of the rounding, cut the allowances and grind /
We quilt the details of the main fabric and padding polyester. Sew in the lower part that covers the abdomen between the paired side elements of the main fabric. We do the same with the lining fabric, after which we connect the lining with the overalls, leaving the back line and armholes intact (they must be open).
Jumpsuit made of tights. Don’t believe that ordinary children’s tights can be used to make an adorable jumpsuit for a pet? See for yourself that this is so! We offer you to sew this bright and cheerful jumpsuit yourself, with a minimum of effort.
A dog cap will protect your pet from bright sunlight and heatstroke. It is best to sew this model from thin cotton fabric. In this case, the fabric for the lining can be taken the same as for the main work. It is better to adjust the size of the cap with Velcro fasteners or buttons. And process the edges of the cap with keeper tape.
We take measurements from the dog’s head by measuring the semicircle and the circumference. Next, you need to determine the density of knitting, i.e. the number of loops per 10 cm of the knitted part. To do this, knit a few loops with a 1×1 elastic band. After that, measure how many loops fit in 10 cm.
Here is another interesting house in bright colors. To create such a masterpiece, much effort is not required. Just a little time, patience and hard work.
This vest is easy to make and does not require professional sewing skills. At the same time, such clothes will make the process of collecting outdoors a pleasure, because your dog will no longer get confused in the jacket and try to put its head through the neck of the sweater.

Beautiful houses for dogs in an apartment with your own hands: 6 detailed master classes
Every loving owner wants only the best for his pet. Along with the issues of health, upbringing and care, the idea arises of how to organize your pet a cozy home booth in a holiday apartment.
Let’s find out how to build a house in an apartment for dogs with our own hands?
From cardboard or plywood
They look like designer ones, they will be very suitable for decorative dogs:
Building a pattern.
To do this, based on the parameters of the dog, draw a rectangle. the base. From the base, make allowances of 1-1.5 cm on all sides for lifting. From each edge, draw more rectangles of the desired height with an allowance of 2.5-3 cm upward. Thus, you will get a pattern that vaguely resembles a cross. Cut the opening from the side that will be in front.
Cut 2 pieces from the fabric according to the pattern.
Sew the details along the upper sides of the collars. Turn the product through the side holes.
Fill the lounger with padding polyester and carefully sew from one side through the center to the opposite. Thus, by sewing all the edges in the center, you will get a pillow.
Add ribbons or laces. Add decorative elements (buttons, bows, embroidery, etc.). You can supplement the lounger with a canopy or pillows.

The first thing to look out for is the breed of your dog.
The house should be of such a size that the dog can freely go inside, turn around, sit in full growth (without bending his head) and lie stretched out. Consider the following parameters:
- Height at withers.
- Distance from withers to tip of front paws.
- Chest width.
- Length from nose to tail.
For an approximate calculation, refer to the approximate table for some dog breeds.
Measurement is an important part when creating a future house or sunbed. By neglecting this procedure, you increase the chance of creating an uncomfortable product.
Based on the size of the breed, it is easier to determine what the future house will be like:
- Made of cardboard.
- Fabric (made of foam rubber).
- Wood or plywood.
By creating a “cozy nest” for your pet with your own hands, you get a huge scope for a flight of imagination:
- You can design the model yourself.
- Use fabrics at your discretion (density, pattern, etc.).
- Bring decor to your taste.
Remember, all diagrams are provided for illustrative purposes. Dimensions shown in drawings may not fit your pet.
The needlewomen also did not ignore the production of beds: they make beds from fabric, from tires, mixed compositions (fabric. wood). The most economical and simple way to create a sunbed is to alter an old sweater or jacket: imagine, you don’t even need a pattern for a sunbed!
For work you will need:
- Sweater or textile jacket.
- Pencil / felt-tip pen.
- Filler, synthetic winterizer or foam rubber.
- Needle and thread / sewing machine.
Spread the sweater out on your work surface. The neck is sewn up, a line is made from one sleeve to the other at the level of the chest of the jacket. Fill the future side with foam rubber through the sleeve and insert one sleeve into the other.
Then the sleeves are sewn together. At this stage, you can adjust the shape of the side: make it rectangular (sew the corners) or round. The bottom is stuffed with soft and also sewn, for a rounded shape, the bottom is tucked up and hemmed in the shape of the side. The final touch is to sew the sleeves to the base.
Made of wood
For dogs of large breeds, it is safer to create a large wooden house even in an apartment.
The first option for creating from wood (bars). To do this, you need:
- Wooden blocks or planks.
- Jigsaw or saw.
- Fastening nails / screws.
- Hammer / screwdriver.
- Paint for decoration.
- Grinder for grinding.
How to build:
- The initial stage in building a wooden booth is to build a frame. To do this, cut the boards to the required size, fasten them with nails or screws. Thus, we get a box.
- The next step is to trim and sand the floorboards, walls and roofs. Attach the sanded boards tightly to the frame, starting from the base and ending with the roof. If such a kennel is constantly in the apartment, the roof can be decorated with small sheaves of straw.
- Carefully mark the entrance with a pencil and cut with a jigsaw.
- The final stage will be finishing, decorating or painting the house.
A simplified option for creating a wooden house is to work with plywood. The principle of operation is similar to the first option, the only difference is in the cladding (instead of boards, a sheet of plywood is nailed).
