Good idea I can see that they will end up budling in the one bed already!:rolleyes:

has anyone tried these in the car please? I'm worried that the dogs will slide around on them?

they won;t slide around if they wearing a harness :)
they go well inside crates and don't slip

Thanks Inca - but sorry, being a bit stupid here - what would be the difference of them wearing a harness? They wouldn't be attached to the seatbelt in the crate.

The same seller on ebay has fleece blankets that have a waterproof backing on the underside. You need to email him but they are quite cheap and look really cosy. I know we are going to order some for the cars. :)

Thanks I thought about these but think we will have the same problems as I do with vet bed. Three of our crew insist on getting extremely wet whenever we take them out - which is usually to the beach or we go near the river...

In this weather, the vet bed doesn't dry out and I don't like them getting in on wet bedding - although it's not a very long journey. I don't think the fleece blankets would dry out either.

I guess I'm just being fussy LOL - if they really don't slide on the waterproof beds that would be the best option.

I see what you mean, no you aren't being fussy just want the best for your dogs!;)

I can't stand vet bed, after 1 wash i find it looking tatty!:eek:

I do like it in that it wicks away mositure so they are not <normally> lying on a wet bed, it works fine if the air temperature is high enough to dry it out in between, but it's quite cold here at the moment and even with the car in the garage it doesn't dry out. I don't really want to wash and dry the vet bed every day - doesn't seem very enivronmentally friendly amongst other things...

Oh and I do have VERY wet dogs - Cruzy likes to LIE DOWN in muddy puddles, bless him!

Yes Rio our blenheim likes mud also!:rolleyes:

Typical that he is the blenheim and Ashton who is very clean is the b&t!:D

Nicki - you MUST get a photo of Cruz lying in a puddle - that would be a great shot for 2009 Calender:)

Well I got a large black bed and the dogs love it. Its great in the muddy weather as they have been bringing half of the garden in with them (:eek:) but I have just wiped it down and I am very impressed!

The beds are much lighter than I thought but really well made!:)

We are hooked, in fact we are going to order another one!!!:D

They really are ideal for when they come in from the garden and although I was worried that they would be a bit cold and not very comfy the dogs love them!

I did overestimate the size though and it could easily fit in another 2 cavvies!;)

(just another reason for me to add to my family of cavvies!:lol:)

I got the large one for my lot. The 3 of them sleep in it and love it. It is really a great buy. Going to buy another one for 'visitors' :dogwlk:

They are quite good beds and it is nice that you can hose them down rather than putting them through the wash but ours does look grubby already despite being washed and because they don't go through the wash they retain that "doggy" smell.

I freely admit that I am one of those people who likes the dogs to smell lovely and looked well groomed all the time!:rolleyes::D

The dogs despite having this bed padded bed still choose 90% of the time to sleep on a towel in their crate!:rolleyes::confused:

These beds look like they would prevent dog hair from weaving through the fabric and getting totally imbedded?

I have beds that I vacuum, wash and they still are full of hair! Does this bed help with that?

My experience is that dog hair doesn't weave into the fabric, I have got the 6oz fabric which is tougher than the 4oz fabric so I can't speak for that one. I know what you mean with the dog hair it drives me insane!:D
