Liners for Raised Dog Beds

Now that our Raised dog beds are just about here to be lined, there are suddenly big obstacles for seemingly small problems. We have made patterns for liners that fit beautifully inside the raised bed. The biggest problem is to cut the pattern so precisely that it simply fits and wraps itself round the thick surrounds on the bed. I did this over a few weekends and evenings and ended up being rather proud of the result.

However, I had ignored all along that there will have to be some way of attaching the liner on the outside of the bed to make it fixed and tidy when a dog digs and moves around. My first inkling was to drill holes and put a toggle though. I got my self all fixated on this idea and couldn’t see past it. I could not find the right toggles either so I went and bought dowling and cut pieces out to make my own toggles. The problem just got bigger because you need to make very large holes to push the toggle and the rope through.

But then I thought of hooks and looked through pages and pages of photos of hooks finally finding a company in Mexico that would make the correct size of hooks for our raised dog beds. They will screw on perfectly and make it easy to simply pull the rope at the end to make the liner fit beautifully. Of course, having bought a sample of those hooks I narrowed it in to finding both American and UK companies that are able to make the right sort of hooks.

I went to the workshop this morning to fit the hooks to the raised dog beds with liners that I had already made last week and it’s absolutely perfect.

We are now waiting for the first consignment of our raised dog beds early next week and we can then fulfil our orders that have come in as pre-orders on the web site. We are very, very excited about this new product as it simply has everything you ever needed in dog beds.

These dog beds can be kept clean through and through and are super comfortable for your dog, who also appreciates hugely to be higher up from the floor. Wonderful.
