We are in dog training classes and needed a type of bed to put our dog in their place. These beds can be pricey so I found this tute http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-Dog-Cot-for-around-10/   and made one for my Border Collie. I used outdoor fabric but I think if/when I make another one I will use a different type of fabric that is more durable.

That's lovely, great fabric choice.

I made one of these using a Sunbrella type outdoor fabric and it is holding up very well. It is outside on the patio in spring, summer, and fall and is used for an inside bed for the winter months.
