Learn how to make dog stuff using our free instructions.
This website began in 2006 to share items I'd made for Comet.
After that, I began looking for other things to make in an eco friendly, cost effective way. Scrounging and creativity became the name of the game!
My sweet and generous hubby helps with technical and engineering matters. What's not to love?
Happy New Year to you all! With less time needed for practicing music, there's more for making stuff, especially dog stuff. I've been teaching myself some new crochet and beadwork patterns... such fun!
Above is my latest attempt at a crocheted dog sweater. I found a delightful book that teaches you how to make all sorts of granny squares.

Although there's no charge for most of the instructions for how to make our dog products, we do have a few specially engineered dog plans for wheelchairs and ramps, which are available for purchase at a relatively low cost.
To share how you make dog stuff, go to the Homemade Dog Stuff page and follow the instructions. It's easy to submit - all you need to do is fill out a simple form, describe what you've made, and add up to four digital photos of your project (photos are very welcome but not required).
Good ideas that are shorter are incorporated into existing pages, with credit given to you.
