The Bliss Bolster Bed
Over ten years of dog bedding expertise distilled into one classic design to make the perfect bolster bed
We've been contemplating what makes the perfect bolster style bed for over ten years (read the launch blog for the full story) , and The Bliss Bolster Bed is Charley Chau's answer to that question.
Designed with four ethically sourced duck-feather filled Bolster Inserts to create a cosy cocoon around a deep-filled luxury mattress - your dog can nestle into the sides, rest their chins on top, or squish and squash to heir heart's content and yet the bed will simply plump-up right back to shape.
A little extra support and oodles of style points
Inspired by Anna (grand dame of our pack, and almost sixteen year's old!) and all of the older dogs we work with that need a little more support and versatility from their beds to get comfy, we've created a small collection of Mini Bolster Pads to add to the The Bliss Bolster Bed.
Add Mini Bolster Pads on this page in the same colour as The Bliss Bolster Bed, or select "Bolster Bed Only" here and head off to the Mini Bolster Pad page to choose any combination of colours that you wish and style-up your Bliss Bolster Bed!

Bliss Bolster Bed Removable Covers in Faroe
As you would expect from Charley Chau, the removable covers on The Bliss Bolster Bed are machine washable. Wash on a gentle synthetics wash (low-medium spin speed). The covers can be dried naturally or tumble dried on a low heat setting. If ironing the covers please use a low heat setting.
Deep-Filled Luxury Mattress
The deep-filled luxury mattress can be machine washed on gentle synthetics cycle (low spin speed) and dried naturally, laid flat on an airing rack or in a warm airing cupboard. Re-shape while damp and ensure the mattress is dried out thoroughly before use. Large size mattresses should be washed in a large capacity machine only. We generally recommend waterproof liners for the large size mattresses as they reduce the need to wash the mattress as frequently.
Feather Bolster Pads
The Feather Bolster Pads inside the Bliss Bolster Bed sides are are machine washable on a gentle wash, e.g. a delicates or handwash cycle, and should be dried thoroughly (bone dry!) in a tumble drier as the action of the tumble drier will separate and plump the wet feathers after washing. If drying naturally (not ideal), do so in a warm airing cupboard and give the pads a good "bash" several times throughout the drying period.

A note about our duck feathers ...
Our ethically sourced duck feather pads are made in England and our manufacturer sources the feathers that fill our pads from a Downpass certified feather supplier in Germany. This means that the feathers used in our pads are a by-product of the food industry and humanely sourced (i.e. not collected from live animals, nor from the foie gras industry).
