I didnít think about that. That would make the fence 3í lower. Itís not going to work for my escape artist unless itís away from the fence.

Those are both good suggestions. Who else is going to make one? The $700 one needs to be bolted to the ground. I want a moveable, lighter weight option.

If you're handy you could make one Kundra Bed style. Pvc pipe is inexpensive, light weight and easy to cut. The fittings and elbow joints are cheap too. Any outdoor rated fabric from the fabric shop will work (lawn furniture upholstery). You can attach the fabric to the pvc pipe by drilling holes and using washers and screws to hold the fabric in place. You can make it any size/height you want. You can attach deck flanges to the legs that have holes in them and anchor it down with tent stakes.
Depending on the size and cost of fabric you could probably make what you want for less than $100 plus your time.

I like those too! But pricey, phew.

Depending on how heavy your dogs are, a single sheet of 1/2" plywood may work for the tops too...plywood fairly light, pretty inexpensive?


( We used to build tunnels, houses, ramps, platforms and all kinds of things for our guinea pigs...but out of corrugated cardboard, so that's a lot easier/cheaper! Building things for Rumo is much more of an endeavor...)
