6 Awesomely Eco-Friendly Dog Beds

For Earth Month, we’re really trying to cover our topics. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t include some environmentally friendly ideas for keeping our furry friends in line with mother nature. As someone who runs a dog rescue, I am obsessed with pet products and being smart about what I buy. One of my personal favorite items, dog beds, can sometimes be a tricky one to get the nitty-gritty on, so I’ve rounded up my favorite finds over the years.

I have an Irish Wolf Hound and finding a bed big enough for her was hard. I found that a used crib mattress from the thrift shop ($20.00) worked great and the crib sheet can be pulled off and washed.

I've seen beds on the Drs. Foster & Smith website (and in the catalog) that are made out of recycled materials, too.

I like the idea that some of the bed are made eco-friendly, I also like that their do not look like "Princess beds" , but sadly much to excpensive. Bad that you have to have a deep pocket to live eco friendly. So I go back and do my own out of recycling old stuff, which "snickers" like because it smells like home.

I would rather make my own. But these ideas would be good for someone not as DIY-inclined as I am. Thanks!

Didn't know, thanks

Frank: I know and understand as many people do that the flu vaccine is not effective because it does…

Especially brush and demat long fur/hair dogs.
