“ Manufacturer: Tuffies / Type: Dog Bed Cover „
We recently decided to invest in a good quality dog bed for our dog, and finally settled on a Tuffies dog bed. When the bed arrived we found that is wasn't as soft as we'd have liked, so we decided to purchase a 'Fluffy Tuffie' cover from the same company.
The cover is available in four sizes:
68 x 59cm costing £20.00
76 x 68cm costing £31.00
110 x 68cm costing £34.50
140 x 92cm costing £46.00
These prices may seem initially expensive (they're still much cheaper than the beds!), but they are extremely good quality. The cover is available in two colours: Light Brown and Light Grey. We opted for the light grey colour and 140x92cm size to fit our bed of the same size.
Our bed cover arrived in good time, only a few days after I ordered it. It was delivered by courier, and I paid £8.24 in shipping costs, which is a little pricey but you do have to bear in mind that this is a heavy cover.
The cover has, as the name describes, a very fluffy top layer made of deep-piled polyester. The bottom of the bed cover is made of a light waterproof nylon. The cover opens on it's bottom and the bed slides in like a pillow going into a pillow case. The cover is sealed by poppers, which are very well disguised and are not exposed at all when the cover is turned back over, making it very handy if you have a dog which likes to chew.
The cover is extremely comfortable. It really takes the cold edge off the bed, and makes it much more appealing to my dog. I have tested it out myself and can definitely vouch for it being comfortable and soft! The polyester is hard wearing, but I found that when it was new it was prone to shedding it rubbed against too much or if my dog was to 'dig' a toy while on the bed.
The cover is washable, and can also be tumble dried. I have had to wash our cover previously due to it getting marks on it from various dog treats. I washed it on a 40 degree was and tumbled dried it until dry - it hasn't had any ill effect on the cover and it still fits perfectly and feels as soft as it was when new.
Overall, I think this cover is a fantastic investment. It made our Tuffies dog bed far more comfortable for our dog and it is extremely good quality. It's neatly made and the poppers are discreetly placed. I would really recommend this if you're considering a Tuffies dog bed!
