Where did you get the metal piping and fittings? Do you have wooden feet or anything attached to the wooden box underneath for added support or is the metal frame enough support as is? I want to have my husband build something similar to yours, but possibly large enough to fit 2 beds for 2 dogs, as we are getting a new puppy… only problem is, is that they are Golden Retrievers and well, rather large! 😉
Thank you for the help!

After I got the idea in my head, I picked up 6″ pine boards, an assortment of brackets, spray paint, and the necessary to make a rectangular frame for the dog bed. After bringing home the metal pipe and fittings, my husband and I assembled the rectangular frame with short legs. Because the fittings all have to screw together, and we were trying to screw a rectangle of parts together, we were constantly tightening one corner while loosening another corner. Eventually we got all the fittings to loosely screw together with the plan to glue the joints later for a firmer hold. After creating the rectangle, I measured the inside of it to determine what size wood boards I needed.
PVC Dog Bed Frame, I'm thinking of metal pipe instead
A strong bed with good support and cushioning is essential for this breed since Rottweilers belong to large size group dogs.
Elevated dog bed with a metal frame and a memory foam base is a good option for this breed.
