How to Clean a Large Dog Bed?

Getting a dog can be very exciting, heart warming, and a wonderful way to grow your family. There are many means in which you can make your new best friend comfortable in your home.  One of the easiest things to do is to find a dog bed that is easily cleaned.

The emphasis here is on “easy to clean”.  This creates a “win-win” situation wherein both owner  and dog are happily cohabiting, without anyone getting the shorter end of the stick.

It is one thing to look after small breeds, but it is a whole other ball game if you are caring for a big dog.

Nearly everything with big dogs is larger. Their meals are bigger, they take up a lot more space. Therefore, their beds are going to be larger also. So, when it comes to cleaning or washing dog beds in larger sizes, what is the most efficient way to go about it?

Know what you are working with

Dog Bed

First off, consider what type of bed you are working with.

  • Can you clean it in the washing machine?
  • Does the material dry fast?
  • Will getting it wet affect any features?
  • Are the covers easily removable, or is the bed in one piece?
  • Does moisture seep through the fabric and get on the inner foam?

With modern technology and a handful of studies, dog beds now come in many shapes, sizes, textures, and advantages – which gives you a whole lot of options.

And boy, can it get pretty overwhelming if you don’t know where to start!

Unfortunately, some beds that were built for comfort or medical purposes are not always so straightforward when it comes to cleanup.

Never again will you need to sacrifice having a simple hygienic process for your canine’s well-deserved comfort!

How to keep the beds clean?

Clean Dog Bed

Now that you have a better idea as to which dog bed you want to invest in, it is time to learn just how simple it is to keep them clean.

Washable removable covers

All of the dog beds come with a comfy cover that is removable, machine washable, and even waterproof!

Most of the beds feature heavy-duty zippers, but as a precaution, the Chew Resistant Dog Bed is designed with Velcro in place of the zipper.

Once you get the covers off, pop them in the washing machine and wash with cold water.

Drying the covers

When thoroughly cleaned, leave them in the dryer on low heat until it is ready to get back on the foam. You may also opt to air dry the covers if you prefer.

Waterproof from top to bottom

Our covers feature waterproof liners from top to bottom, so you will not have to worry about cleaning the inner foam!

That’s all it takes to keep your dog’s bed clean, warm, dry, and comfortable!
