My dog requires a good bout of exercise and usually gets a good deal of it every day. Recently, she hurt her pad running in the woods without her dog boots on. In the few days of recovery, you might say she went a bit “squirrely” (but don’t say that word in front of her).
As one outlet for her pent-up energy during this time, she took on a big project. She decided, as she has learned to do with stuffed toys, to pull the stuffing out of the master bed cover (less than a month old). We’ll call this the “before” scenario. As a general rule, she’s allowed up on the bed during the day. She likes to bring her toys up there, pull the cover up into a pile in which to nest, and generally sprawl all over the sheets and pillows. Harmless fun which we’ve allowed until this incident.
Before I invested in a new cover, I was happy to find out about the Paws Off protective bed cover from LiveWell Pet Products. Paws Off is a thick fleece cover with elastic corners which secure it to the bed. It’s kind of an over-sized fitted sheet made out of a thick, durable fleece you simply pull over your existing mattress and bedding to protect them from your dog’s antics as well as any “evidence” they might leave behind.
My dog loves loves loves the fabric. It is nice and thick and comfy. She was instantly drawn to it. At night, I can take the cover and put it on her bed. She will follow it anywhere. It is machine washable, and seems really well made and durable. I was initially interested in Paws Off to protect my bed cover, but I have found that I also like the side benefit of having a fresher bed without dog hair and sand between the sheets!
