The Challenges of British Weather!
There’s nothing better than heading outdoors with your dog for some fresh air and some much-needed steps but sometimes the UK Winter weather makes things tricky. Lashings of rain equals one thing when it comes to our four-legged friends… MUD and a lot of it! Which ultimately means you’re dealing with a rather damp smelly dog!
Then we’ve all had that moment where our dear dog, caked in mud, jumps in the back of our car and covers everything in muck and sludge. Even if you put down a blanket, you’re going to be spending the next week trying to get the stains out. Tried a fabric bed? Then you’ll know that you have the same problem with the added annoyance of the bed losing shape due to excessive yet necessary washing. So, how do you continue to enjoy the outdoors with your dog while keeping the mud at bay?
Ivy & Duke have the perfect solution, no matter the time of the year! Our luxury waterproof dog beds are practical, durable and perfect for your outdoor dog adventures. Handcrafted and designed with three layers: a fully waterproof outer cover, a waterproof inter-liner and a fabric inner, our waterproof beds have been designed for your way of life. The outer cover is easily removable with full zips and can simply be wiped down or machine washed. You can also purchase spare waterproof bed covers which means you’ll have a spare bed cover always to hand while washing the original.
Not only have we considered convenience by using premium upholstery fabric which is hardwearing, but we’ve also ensured that our designs are stylish so they can work in any room as well as your car. In fact, three of our waterproof designs are purposely built to move from the home to the car so your dog can travel in style and luxury.
Our team of 13 artisans are involved in every stage of design, construction and quality control ensuring that not only do you have a dog bed that looks good but it also serves its main function – providing a great waterproof solution which still guarantees a dog’s comfort.
All of our luxury waterproof beds boast a deep, thick memory foam base which offers full orthopaedic support for dogs of any age. Each order is individually handmade by our dedicated team of cutters and seamstresses resulting in a stylish, well made and multi-purpose waterproof dog bed.
Our seven designs are available in four sizes and five timeless colours from royal blue to burgundy red. We also offer free fabric samples and free bed sizing templates so you can ensure the design will work with your home interiors and car.
