Snoozer dog beds - Page 1

I am in the process of looking for a new dog bed. I made the mistake of hanging the cover outside to dry on a windy day without zipping it up. Consequently it broke the zipper.  Bed is about 10 years old and has held up well otherwise -- will be downgraded to my office at work.

Need something that is bolstered (cuts down on the wall washing). The price is a killer but like the idea of being able to hose down the fill on the Snoozer bed. Anyone have one of these?

Also looking at Orvis or if anyone has any other suggestions. 

The old bed (I think I posted this pic before in another dog bed thread).

Nice looking dogs. Don't have a Snoozer bed. I have had a Orvis for the last twenty seven years. It was not cheap back then $165...It is not as nice looking as the one in your picture. It does have a bolster in back and sheep skin outside on the bed part. Besides the back bolster, it has two side bolsters. The bed is sort of like a giant arm chair, big enough for two dogs, although mine typically use it one at a time. It has seen me through seven dogs, two of which are currently using it taking turns. Several years ago one as a puppy bit a small hole through part of the sheep skin and I had to duct tape it. But it still works fine. However, there is no zipper, so the whole thing would have to be washed, which I have never done. It is too heavy to be hung up. Fortunately, none of my dogs ever toileted themselves on the bed...

I get the Orvis catalog and they seem to have the biggest selection of anyone. They have very knowledgeable people so you could ask them for a bed with a zipper if they have one. They make nice things.

Nice looking cat, too Wink Smile

Could you get the zipper fixed or replaced at a shoe repair/similar?

Maybe one of the K9 supply houses... Elite K9, etc.

Find a neighbor or someone from your church who sews. Zippers are easy to replace.

Shhhhh, don't tell my husband that zippers can be repaired. That's my reasoning for needing a new dog bed.

I was thinking about just doing a zipper repair but liked the idea of being able to easily wash the mattress on the Snoozers.
