Dealing with a damp dog bed

Fiona Thompson, fabulous Scottish artist, a friend and also a customer contacted us recently to ask for advice on dealing with a damp dog bed. And she's not the first person to do so!

Fiona has a gorgeous pack : Milly the Labrador, JJ and Friday the Whippets, and Zoomie and Lottie the Italian Greyhounds. Their home is filled with our entire collection of dog beds and blankets!

Fiona had a very specific issue to deal with: Milly’s overnight bed in the kitchen was damp. Not a little bit damp but very damp - wet through at the bottom every morning. Fiona was having to wash and replace the bedding every day. Not only was the washing driving Fiona mad but Milly had started to avoid her bed.

But we’re also very good at running rings around the humans. So much so that we actually run the office. And we rule the humans. This is how it should be as far as I am concerned.

But the humans don’t agree and they’re fighting back. They’ve called in a Doggie Dictator. I heard them talking on the phone. It sounds like the DD is coming to visit tomorrow. This is not good news.

Machine washable dog beds - machine washable everything!

With the British Autumn settling in, dog owners everywhere will be steeling themselves for months of dealing with mucky dog beds. We’re in the same boat with our four monkeys. They may be short coated and prefer to walk around a puddle than get their paws wet but they’re inevitably pretty mucky after a walk through the woods in the rain.

That’s why we design all of Charley Chau dog beds and dog blankets to be as practical as they are comfortable and stylish, working to a mantra of “machine washable everything”.
