    Just let them sleep with you!😘 Are you asking about a box of some sort? For your bedroom or another room, enclosed or open?

      I can't imagine 10. I have 3 Havachons that sleep with me and sometimes I can't even turn over. But I love it and them , however 10 would be impossible. Do you want to keep them in your bedroom? And is there enough floor space you can make a good sized bed for them? Or were you thinking something else?

    Not sure what you are asking? Do you want to make space for the dogs in your bed, a bed for them or something else? Don't know what your furniture looks like so it is difficult to provide ideas. Could you post a picture and let us know what you want (something on the floor, their own mini-bed that is raised off the floor with a ramp, something covered (like a canopy) or what?

    Do they sleep together or need separate beds?? All Together.....Maybe an old twin mattress in a nice wooden frame that matches furniture. Put water proof mattress pad on it then just use blankets from Goodwill so they can be removed to be laundered or even thrown out if need be. Make wood frame from 2x4s then maybe 4 posts at corners for some fancy detail add some decorative molding paint some nice cheerful color,you could use piece of 2x4 or 4x4 for small step up if any cannot get over frame.I would just keep mattress & frame on floor easier on the little ones. Go to Home Depot/Lowes and check scrap lumber for lower cost pieces of wood. You could also look around at Goodwill etc. for old day bed & cut legs off or they could use step stool to get up on it.

  • There is no shortage ideas out there on the internet. Here are a bunch, see what may spark your creative side that will fit in your space.

    Understand how you feel, I have 3 dogs and 6 cats with me on a queen bed. Sometimes more if there are visiting animals.
