Ben Mazer began creating a room dedicated to his dachshunds, Peaches, Mitzi and Challah, back in July, after deciding he was keen for the pups to have their own space to stop them from getting back injuries that dachshunds are prone to by jumping on and off human furniture. Ben began the process of creating his spare bedroom into a place exclusively for his small dogs, by first finding some dog-sized sofas from Wayfair. He picked out blue and yellow colours specially for his dachshunds, as like all dogs their dichromatic vision means that they can only see these colours.
Ben even puts up seasonal decorations for each holiday, and plans to give the room a festive touch for Christmas.
Ben says that he has spent between $1000 and $1200, or around £800, decorating the room so far.
“I wanted to create an environment that would be stimulating for them, but also calm and relaxing,” he says of his creation, which his dogs enjoy spending time in every day.
Videos of the living room have gone viral on TikTok, with one video showing off the room having over ten million views.
Ben has been continuing to build on the living room ever since, giving viewers top tips to inspire other dog owners to get creative.
