your dog deserves the best

We're not here to claim we make the best dog beds, but let's talk about what goes into making our beds.

So, what makes a good dog bed? Great question!

The simple answer is that a good dog bed is one that your dog loves.

But you should always look for a dog bed that uses the highest quality materials and no harmful chemicals. In particular, look for dog beds that:

  • use 100% cotton canvas material in the cover
  • are machine washable
  • use only AZO-free dyes in the printing process
  • are not stuffed mystery fiber or the same material that's in chew toys!
  • are not treated with fire-retardant or other harmful chemicals

At molly mutt we've spent the last 13 years perfecting our dog bed system to make it the best dog bed for your pup and our planet. The result of all that hard work is two dog beds that your dog will absolutely love.

cheap dog beds don't last

Sure, you can walk in to any big box pet store and walk out with a cheap dog bed for your home. Our beds are moderately priced — they aren't the cheapest, but they aren't the most expensive either.

The problem with cheap dog beds is they simply don't last very long. What you end up saving in the short term, costs you in the long run when you have to replace those beds over and over.

molly mutt dog bed covers are built to last and will stand up to years of normal dog use — even nesting.

your scent makes all the difference

Most pre-stuffed dog beds are stuffed with the same polyfil that is also in chew toys.

So, besides the squeaker, how is your dog supposed to tell the difference between their toy and their bed when it comes to chewing?!

The molly mutt bed is filled with your old pillows, blankets, towels, etc. These items smell like you and your scent is comforting to your dog.

Our sheepy wool-filled dog beds are pre-stuffed, but with 100% all natural wool from a farm in California. It is minimally processed and will keep your dog warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
