What is a Bungalow Pet?
In keeping with the Craftsman Style, a Bungalow
Pet takes solace in the simple, artistic, and functional designs in life.
Pet is the cat lying on
the floor soaking up the sun coming through the window, the dog anxiously
awaiting your arrival home, or the dog or cat that has to sleep at the foot
of your bed, or on your head! We provide the bed for the cat or dog to
sleep in and soak up the sun, the ergonomically designed dining station for
your pet that wants to be fed the minute you get home, the stairs for your
pet to reach your bed, and the perch and toys for entertainment while you’re
Bungalow pets reflect their owner’s taste
by relaxing in fine furniture with clean lines,
traditional craftsmanship, natural beauty, and timeless design.

the Arts & Crafts Style?
The Arts and Crafts Movement was led by British
poet, artist, and architect William Morris, who rejected the heavy
ornamentation of the Victorian style in favor of fine craftsmanship and
clean design. Proponents of the movement believed that technologies of mass
production stifled the creativity of the individual, and they hoped to bring
handcrafted goods to the common man. This unique style emphasized
traditional craftsmanship and honesty of design. Various craftsmen and
artists encompassed the Arts & Crafts philosophy into their work which
included pottery, furniture, soft furnishings, metal work, stained glass,
gardening and even architecture.
The Arts &
Crafts Style, also referred to as
Craftsman Style, offers clean lines, traditional craftsmanship, natural
beauty and timeless design. For more information on the Arts and Crafts
movement, please see our Links page.

What is “quartersawn” white oak?
Most Arts and Crafts
purists look for quartersawn white oak in their furnishings. Quarter sawing
is a method of sawing a log into quarters lengthways to obtain strong,
distinctive grain patterns. Cut from a log which has been quartered
lengthwise and at an angle of at least 45 degrees to lessen warping and
shrinking, quartersawn timber takes more time and energy to produce.
Quartersawn Plain Sawn
This milling technique,
while less efficient, results in a more stable board and brings out the
natural beauty of the medullary rays (or
"ribbon and ray" look) of the wood. Bungalow Bob’s Pet Designs uses
quartersawn white oak for the characteristic bands of color,
unique markings, stability, and strength.
Where do you get your wood?
Bob’s Pet Designs is strongly committed to the environment and only uses
timbers that are supplied from a renewable resource to ensure that future
generations can enjoy our natural resources.

What are the benefits of an elevated feeder?
Veterinarians recommend elevated feeders for dogs and cats because they
offer a number of benefits:
Hygiene and cleanliness - Elevated
bowls help keep food and water in the bowl and not on the floor. With
a normal pet dish, as dogs raise their heads to facilitate swallowing,
water and food often ends up on the floor. In addition, moisture
under a traditional food dish can foster mold and bacteria growth.
Health - Elevated
feeding stations help reduce intestinal gas in dogs by removing the
need to bend over when eating. Eating in a bent over position forces
dogs to gulp their food and swallow more air in the process. Higher
food dishes result in less gulping and reduced intestinal gas. In
addition, elevated food bowls are more comfortable for pets with
arthritis, sore joints, or neck/back problems. If eating is
painful or uncomfortable, pets are less likely to eat. Raising food
and water to a comfortable level encourages eating and drinking
thereby promoting proper nutrition.
owners also benefit by not having to bend over as far to fill water
and food dishes. For the frail, physically handicapped, or people with
arthritis or back problems, elevated feeders can make a big
