Why sheepskins make great dog beds

Ruby, my lovely lurcher, may be the laziest sales assistant in the world, but she is a star when it comes to product testing our sheepskin dog beds. She has several for use at home and also in the Fabulous Fleece Co van. Unlike larger pet beds, they are very portable, so we take Ruby's to keep her comfortable when we’re on the road and exhibiting at shows.

Feedback we've had from our pet owning customers is that the sheepskin dog beds look great but are also really practical to keep clean and fresh. Sheepskin is a naturally stain and odour repellant material anyway, however, our sheepskin pet bed can also go in the washing machine. We’d recommend washing with a woolwash detergent on a cool wash to keep it at its best - read our sheepskin product care tips here.

However, the important thing is that sheepskin dog beds are big hit with the dogs themselves. We think there are several good reason why...

Sheepskin is a natural material so the fleece both smells and feels natural, which makes animals feel more at home. It helps to keep them a comfortable temperature too - sheepskins insulating properties keep dogs warm in winter and cool in summer so it’s ideal for year-round use.

Comfort also becomes more important as your dog gets older and less mobile, and the thickness of a sheepskin fleece helps to prevent pressure sores. It’s good for pets with arthritis too.
