A funny one to get you woofing for the weekend. You’ll love IKEA Australia’s dog high chair.
Posted from Australia on 30th March, but perhaps it was already 1st April there.
The IKEA HUNDSTOL dog high chair
The video starts with IKEA designer, Alvar Karlsson, (for real or just an actor, we don’t know) introducing the new product. The HUNDSTOL is part of IKEA’s effort “to accommodate the growing demand for furniture that reflects today’s modern family.”
“Not only is the dog a part of the family, they’re also a trial run for kids,” he says.
The chair was designed with the dog’s comfort in mind, with a hole in the back of the chair for the tail. The high chair even has paw grips on the seat for stability. Food and water are served in two easily removable inset bowls.
Ever since we bought our new king size IKEA bed, our little Dachshund has been unable to get up onto the bed by himself. I made a ramp from which he can jump to a small bench / dog steps that we have next to our bed and then onto the bed itself. This is only for small dogs, because the box, while sturdy, just isn’t meant to hold any substantial amount of weight. Otto thinks he’s a Doberman and the 1″ legs he has, were merely a mistake! See our dog ramp for bed.
#2 EASY CLIMB WINDOW SEAT FOR SMALL DOGS
I needed something in my grandkids playroom that my small dogs could easily climb up the stairs and look out the window to the street. Came up with this dog steps plus window seat idea that took zero carpentry skills and works perfectly. See the dog window seat.
