Woman makes ‘needy pet’ desk chair that lets clingy pets sit with their owners

It even has a cute little cubby where they can hang out underneath.

Our pets missed us so much during those days, weeks, months, and years that we were in and out of the house because of professional duties.

But in the last year, many have transitioned to working remotely.

This is the time our pets have all been waiting for.

You know pets, they are needy when it comes to our time and attention, it’s even better than treats. Anyone who lives with a pet while working at home can relate to this.

Swedish YouTube personality Simone Giertz knows the struggle of many pet owners working from home.

She also has a clingy dog named Scraps.

According to her, Scraps would always lay on her whenever she saw an opportunity, a very clingy dog indeed.

It’s can be sweet when a pet wants to be always close to you at all times, but not when you are trying to work.

She went ahead searching for a chair that would best suit both her and Scraps’ needs. A comfortable chair that has a staircase and a bed on the side.

Sadly, she had no luck in finding the “right” chair.

So Giertz came up with a brilliant idea. Since she didn’t find anything on the internet, she decided to make the chair herself. An office chair that would work great during those long hours at work while staying close to Scraps.

After all, she’s a “DIY” type of woman, as she describes herself on her YouTube channel, she is a “Maker/robotics enthusiast/non-engineer.”

She loves her dog so much that she’s willing to do anything to keep her happy.

Scraps is just 1 year old and only has 3 legs.

The adorable pooch is missing her right rear leg, but she can still be a handful for Giertz as she’s always pumped up with so much energy.

For Giertz, Scraps is the “Commander of everything”, and she’s glad to serve her furry source of happiness.

She knows building a chair where she and Scraps can fit in is something that will benefit them big time.

There are a lot of other pet owners who share the same fate as her, so she’s decided to share the idea on her Youtube channel.

The video now has over 727,000 views and still counting.

There, she shows everyone how she transformed chunks of wood and slices of plywood into a sturdy and multi-purpose chair. It serves not only her needs but also her dog’s.

It’s beautifully designed and even has a staircase.

Now, Scraps can climb up if she wants to sit with Giertz and climb down if she wants to doze off.

Though the size of the chair is big, Giertz says it’s only for people with small pets.

So if you have a canine that’s around 24 inches in height and weighs from 50 to 70 pounds, you’re going to have to get crafty like Giertz and expand on her idea.

It’s true that the chair has a lot to improve when it comes to design, portability, and particularly the size that it can cater to.

However, there’s no denying this idea will help a lot of pet owners out there who are struggling to focus at work because of their sometimes unruly furry companions.

See how Giertz materialized her idea in the video below!
