Not all the time, but if you’re an animal lover you may want to consider sprucing up your space so your pooch feels stylish and included. Here are some fun dog-friendly design ideas from around the web:

You can also turn an old wine crate into a food and water dish holder, which is also nice for large breeds so they don’t have to bend down to get their grub. DIY by stenciling your dishes and cutting holes in the crate yourself, or if you’re short on time, purchase one here. (DIY version pictured.)
