I was looking for a new dog bed when U.K pet-bed specialists Scruffs® www.petslovescruffs.com contacted me and offered to send Poppy and Kiwi the new Insect Shield Soft Walled Dog Bed.
The first thing I noticed was the bed is made with Insect Shield® technology to provide effective, invisible and odourless protection, against little beasties like, Mosquitoes, Fleas, Ticks and Flies. The technology is used by more than 50 brands worldwide across various industries. So this was a positive first impression, I want the best for my girls, and this bed helps in the battle to keep those nasty beasties away.
The bed is made with a fixed centre-cushion and integral 100% recycled hollow-fibre fill, this provides greater cushioning characteristics and enhanced durability. I prefer the fixed centre-cushion, my past few dog beds have been removable centres which just means lots of bits gets 'buried' in the bed, i.e. more mess. So I prefer the fixed centre-cushion - easier to keep cleaner.
Available in 4 sizes:
- Small: 50 x 40 x 14cm
- Medium: 60 x 50 x 18cm
- Large: 75 x 60 x 22cm
- X-Large: 90 x 70 x 26cm
Scruffs® has launched the technology in the following bedding and accessory styles in a range of sizes to suit every breed; Mattress (from £39.99), Box Bed (from £29.99), Crate Mat (from £19.99), Bandana (from £4.99), Snood (from £6.99) & Vest (£13.99).
The Insect Shield Soft Walled Dog Bed is perfect. It's very well made, and the dogs love it. We were sent the XL size and it is more than enough room for both of them to cuddle up in.
Kiwi claimed the new bed right away. Poppy kept to her old bed for a couple of days, but I think she missed the cuddles and they now cuddle up in their new bed together.
Already covered in dog hairs! I hoover it easily enough and also use a lint roller, but due to the warmer weather they are molting lots at the moment. It's reassuring to know that the bed is made with a lightweight and breathable fabric, it helps to keep them cool during the hot days.
