Tiny Home Living with Furry Friends: Is It Possible?

Tiny Home Living With Furry Friends

Having a furry companion (or two, or more) can be rewarding, and if you’re interested in tiny homes, then you might be wondering whether you can bring your furry friends with you. In this blog, we’ll explore living with pets in a tiny home, and whether it’s possible to live comfortably with your furry friends.

Stairs, Ramps, Ladders

In some cases, there could be stairs, ramps, or even ladders incorporated into a tiny home. This includes both on the exterior and interior – if so, then you should consider making these accessible and safe for your four-legged companions. Older pets, in particular, might have trouble going up and down stairs, so installing ramps (or looking into designs that don’t require any stairs, ladders, or ramps) is key.

Their Own Space

While our pets love our attention and company, there might be times when they simply want their own space to rest and relax. This is common for cats and independent dogs. In this case, you’ll need to think about how you can incorporate their own resting space into the tiny home that’s easily accessible.

Cleanliness and Maintenance

As you’ll be sharing a much smaller space with your furry friends, it’s likely that your tiny home will get dirty more frequently, meaning that you’ll need to take cleaning and maintenance into consideration. From dirt to hair, both dogs and cats leave behind things that you’ll ultimately need to clean up. For cats, litter box placement is also worth taking into account.

Make Use of the Outdoors

If you own a dog or an outdoor cat, take advantage of your extra outdoor space by utilising outdoor pet beds or kennels, a play area, or other items that your pet can play with and relax in. Making your outdoor space pet-friendly ensures that they have space to run around (within your property area).
