Holiday Gift Guide: Dog Beds


In today’s addition to our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide, we look at some of Irie and Tiki’s favorite products to review: pet beds!

Sealy Dog Bed


We’re all very familiar with the Sealy® name for our own bedding…but now this company offers the Sealy® Dog Bed. Using signature Quad Layer Technology, the bed is designed to permit dogs to enjoy a cooler, more supportive and restful sleep. We’ll be bringing you a full review of this new bed in the coming days (Irie and Tiki are ready to work!) but first wanted to introduce readers to this new bed that offers four layers: Cooling Energy Gel™ to absorb stress on joints and cools dogs; PetRest Memory Foam™ inspired by NASA and designed to help increase circulation by conforming to your dog’s body; Green Tea Orthopedic Foam to maintain natural weight distribution; and HD Charcoal Base to help reduce odors. Beds are available in three sizes and retail from $99.99 to $169.99 in retail outlets and through

Petmate Deluxe Orthopedic Foam Bed


Last month, I told you about my visit to Petmate to take part in the Petmate Advisory Panel. We toured the Petmate offices as well as the factory where many of the Petmate products that you see in your favorite pet retail stores are made. I also came home with a great Petmate bed, one of many produced using fashionable fabrics (and this one was even personalized!) It has quickly turned into Irie’s favorite bed (here on the bed…and wearing her Tagg GPS which you can see in an earlier segment of the Holiday Gift Guide!)
