Frequently Asked Questions
Is this bed machine washable?
Yes this bed is machine washable, though we recommend air drying. To wash, simply remove the cover from the mattress and then wash on a cold gentle cycle with the detergent of your choice. Do not put this bed in a machine dryer, as the heat and friction will weaken the material and shorten its lifespan
Can this bed be used both indoors and outdoors?
We designed the Denim covers for indoor use, and do not recommend them for outdoor use. The natural cotton material can attract dirt more quickly than our TUFF Bed Series™, and will require more frequent cleanings. That said, many customers use this bed in covered back patios, and it suits their dog's needs perfectly.
What is memory foam?
Memory foam is designed to immediately conform to your body and relieve pressure. Its great for puppies to help prevent future problems or older dogs that may be suffering form ailments like hip dysplasia. Memory foam quality is measured in pounds per square foot, the heavier the foam the higher the mattress quality. Our memory foam density is rated at 4.5 lbs / sq. ft.
Is this bed chew resistant?
We designed the Denim beds for serious comfort for your dog, and should be enjoyed by mild mannered canines who don't chew up their bedding. This bed is not chew resistant. Our 14 oz Cotton Denim covers are tough and will outlast most cheap-o dog beds under normal use scenarios. Chewers, diggers, and scratchers will find this cover a tasty appetizer before digging into the main course: a messy mattress. We've found this bed to be a great reward for dogs who have learned to stop chewing and take care of their things.
Why do you cover your memory foam with a waterproof cover?
Waterproof inner covers are designed to protect the integrity of the foam inside. They help as a first barrier of defense against moisture. Moisture that may come from a wet dog, humid conditions, puppy accidents, or an older dog that may be incontinent. Please note that Nesting beds don't come with a waterproof liner, as their poly fiber fill is pretty resilient to moisture (unlike orthopedic foam).
