    Buy a new dog bed. Recommendations? 27th Jan 18 at 9:53 AM
    Wanting to purchase a new bolster style bed for our Cavalier. So far come up with Orivs.co.uk but incredibly expensive and some reviews not too brilliant. Have also looked at PetPlanet.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated please. Many thanks.

    I've previously recommended Kumfipet beds but sadly they've closed up in the past year. Try Bunty pet products (https://www.buntypetproducts.co.uk/dog-beds.html) and see if they've got the kind you are looking for. I've only bought the delux soft bed from there but am very happy with it for the cheap price.

    My dog is getting on in years now so I recently splashed out on something more expensive for him as he was struggling to get up out of his old bed, and due to the almost perfect reviews, went for the PetFusion memory foam bed on Amazon: (link is to small bed) https://www.amazon.co.uk/PetFusion-WATERPROOF-112x86x25cm-orthopedic-Replacement/dp/B017J9KKJ0/

    Thanks mac.d. I hadn!!!8217;t seen those Amazon ones but it is definitely the shape I was looking for. One question - I don!!!8217;t need a waterproof one but wondered if it does rustle? Many thanks.

    It doesn't rustle, I'd say its more water repellant than water proof so the material is softer than the plasticky waterproof of some beds. I use a fleece blanket so its the blanket that gets wet as its easier to wash regularly. You can use a wet cloth to give the bed a wipe down though, and the entire cover can come off to wash too. It is very expensive (though not as bad as those Orvis beds!), but I think I can see why it gets such good ratings.

    My dog has been getting a bit of arthritis and we bought him a wolfy bed for Christmas which he loves it's very comfortable and the whole cover comes off for washing. We got a good deal by picking a colour that is being phased out.

    I always loved the look of zippy dog beds

    Zooplus do one like the amazon one linked above but my dogs had shredded the cover in two months and they don’t do replacements so waste of £70.


    I am debating between a zippy and a tierlando (search amazon) but I have two staffy dogs so in the interim I’ve got a cheapo xxl one from amazon and a memory foam slab under it (from the zooplus one)

    Bought by many!
    Found Bought by Many. , in my facebook newsfeed. Have asked for a quote and it would seem to be very good value compared to others offering similar pet insurance. Has anyone experience of this company, please, or know where I can see sone reviews?
    Thank you for help.

    Ebay and Amazon are your friends. They got lots to choose from including reviews from buyers so you know which is of good quality or not

    Many thanks Jaymie but I've looked right the way through both and haven't seen what I was looking for. I've now seen the Orvis beds and can understand their costs however the size wanted is oos until June. Not sure if that is good or not! lol

    Our dog has two beds, one from Tuffies (quite expensive but not as expensive as Orvis) and the bed has outlasted all others he has had so it has definitely paid for itself. He also has a Silentnight memory foam bed which is excellent. Not sure if any of these do bolster beds but maybe worth a look.
