Remember, now it is getting colder, that it is important to put your self in the dogs’ space and feel for your self whether you think that the dog beds are warm enough. On the floor it can be a whole lot colder than you think as your head is nearly two metres above where the dogs are lying down. If you lie on floor for a while, you will probably experience the sneaking chill and if you had to stay there for several hours you would, most likely start getting seriously cold, not least during the night when the central heating is off. Cold obviously gets worse if there is a little bit of draught. Again, even in modern, well insulated houses, you will find that there is a bit of draught running along the floor. This is the sneaking cold that mattress dog beds, no matter HOW thick they are cannot keep out. So if you have any suspicion that there is even the slightest draught, you should start looking at draught excluding warm dog beds. Tuffies supply a number of luxury dog beds that all give protection against draught. Firstly, the warmest and snuggest of the dog beds that Tuffies make is the Tuffies Nest. If you look at the testimonials page or at the reviews in shop for the nest dog beds you will see that customers rave about them. They are extremely cosy and your dog can totally snuggle down. Here is Gollum and Pontus sharing a nest.
The other alternative of nests are the Raised dog beds from Tuffies. They are also elevated from the floor so that they give total insulation due to the double skin formed between the sleeping area and the floor. Further to this, these raised dog beds have sides protecting the dogs from any wind and draught. They would even be ideal in the out door dog run so that your dog can enjoy a warm, protected place to rest from where he can keep an eye out on the what goes on in his world. The liner gives beautiful warmth and comfort and the best thing is that it is extremely easy to wash and keep impeccably clean as you can simply put it in the washing machine.
Finally, if you already have a plastic dog bed that you would like to keep using, these dog beds can be spruced up very easily with the innovative liner, made by Tuffies. The liner is secured with a cord all the way round so that dogs that dig their dog beds a lot can’t dislodge the liner. However, when you want to wash the liner, it is super easy to loosen the cord and lift the liner off to put it in the washer.
