When we brought our puppy, Dobby, home before Christmas we had already set up his crate next to Brambles in the kitchen with a small bed and blanket. I wanted something big enough for him to sleep on but small enough to leave space in the crate for a puppy pad in case of accidents.
Dobby the bed thief!
From the very first day, Dobby preferred Bramble’s crate with a full mattress bed. No matter how many times we moved him out of Bramble’s crate he would climb right back in there. As if by magic we received an email asking if Dobby would like to try a Silentnight pet bed.
Silentnight Pet Beds
The UK’s most trusted bed brand, Silentnight, know what is necessary for a good night’s sleep because they have been doing it for more than 7 decades. So it makes perfect sense that they also make pet beds for our fur babies to have a place to curl up and relax.
There are currently three different bed styles to choose from:
Fibres rebound after compression to keep the bed plump, cosy and comfortable.
Features a reversible cushion with Airmax technology to enhance the circulation of airflow and freshness.
Cleverly contoured foam layer supports weight evenly to reduce pressure points and relieve sore joints.
Dobby’s Ultrabounce bed
We chose the Ultrabounce pet bed in a medium for Dobby as he often gets quite hot but doesn’t like beds which have walls. The Ultrabounce Silentnight pet bed has been the perfect addition to Dobby’s crate, how when we tell him it’s ‘bedtime’ he will happily climb into his own bed and leave Bramble to his bed and crate.
The bed cover is a soft grey quilted fabric which feels comfortable enough to lay on yet tough enough to withstand Dobby’s sharp claws when he is scratching at his blanket and toys. Most importantly the cover is removable which means that when my mucky pup rushes into his bed without having his paws wiped after a muddy run in the garden, we don’t have to worry about his bed getting dirty.
In this modern world, it’s important to be as eco-friendly as possible. We love that Silentnight’s Ultrabounce polyester fibres are made from recycled plastic bottles. Each pet bed prevents up to 40 plastic bottles being sent to landfill. These are the exact same, fluffy fibres using in their pillows and duvets.
The underside of the pet bed has a non-slip surface which prevents the bed from slipping and sliding around which could cause injury. We use Dobby’s bed in his crate which fits edge to edge but when we tried it on the kitchen floor initially it didn’t move at all.
Dobby’s Silentnight pet bed has been a very welcome addition to the household, it is clear to see the high quality of the bed with the quilted fabric, piped edges and slightly larger cover to allow for ease of removal when it’s time to wash the cover. The cushion itself feels firm but cosy and provides the ideal surface for Dobby to have that all-important place to rest and call his own. The proof is most definitely in the pudding as Dobby loves to snuggle in his own crate now and we often find that Bramble has taken quite a shine to it too.
