A TikToker is racking up hundreds of thousands of views on videos of their dog in a makeshift hammock underneath their desk. 

TikTok user @dacia_fabricia, an account run by two women, first shared a video of their dog, Valentina, a Boston Terrier, in a hammock on February 26. The brief video showcasing the DIY project had nearly 300,000 views and 47,000 likes at the time of writing, and other TikTokers in the comments loved the idea so much they wanted to replicate it.

“I think I need one,” one user commented. “Omg, can you please show us how you did this? My puppy would love it,” wrote another.

The TikTok duo responded to users with a tutorial video on the crafty puppy hammock.

First, they connected two zip ties to the underside of the desk.

Next, they grabbed a fleece blanket and tied knots onto either side of it to each of the zip ties.

After the basic hammock is set up, they put Valentina inside and added pillows and blankets for comfort.

At the end of the video, they noted that they keep the hammock close to the ground in case she has bad dreams. Although it’s not mentioned in the video, they placed a dog bed underneath the hammock, too.

This video had more than 100,000 views and 8,000 likes at the time of writing, and commentators tried hack for themselves.

“I just made this, he climbed in immediately,” one TikToker commented. 

“Yaaaaaas,” wrote another, “doing this Monday.”

Another TikToker noted another use for the hammock: “But also a foot hammock,” the user commented.

@dacia_fabricia responded that they do actually use the hammock as a footrest when Valentina isn’t in it.

“Great minds think alike,” they commented.
