 DandyBed and DandyPlaid

 

Covers

All covers of our DandyBeds and DandyPlaids are made of robust upholstery fabrics with high abrasion resistance. The fabric qualities are selected under the aspects of resistance to claws, hair-repellent surfaces, antistatic, durability, ease of care and washability and are only purchased from manufacturers in Europe.

All covers made of artificial leather (art leather) have a high-quality PU surface.

This means that, unlike conventional artificial leather with PVC surfaces, they are free of harmful phthalate softeners, are washable and do not break on contact with water.

Furthermore, our artificial leathers are free of Cd/AZO/FCKW/PCP/PCB/PCT/formaldehyde, durable, UV-resistant, saliva-resistant, waterproof, skin-friendly and even approved for children's toys.

PU-leather has a surface that is very close to the natural leather and is therefore perceived as warmer and more pleasant. The production of PU leather is much more cost-intensive than that of PVC leather, but for us the advantages of PU leather outweigh by far.

 

 Filling

All side cushions and the inner pillow are filled with quality spherical fibres. The outstanding properties of this filling are in particular:

- Anti-allergen, house dust mites and fine dust are simply rinsed out during washing

- Washable in a normal household washing machine

- Quick drying

- Resistant against mold and rot

- Easy on the joints due to optimal body adaptation

- Highly elastic, even for heavy and large dogs

- No loss of airiness and softness after washing, no clumping

- Down grip

- Noiseless

All these characteristics have led us to work only with this filling. Compared to the much cheaper foam flakes (hardly washable because of the very long drying time, not easy on the joints because of the inflexibility and relatively fast sagging, mostly made of used old foams) and polystyrene balls (not washable, loud, forming micro plastic dust through friction and inhalable by the dog, hard compressed surface) the advantages of a ball fibre filling are unbeatable for us despite the higher price.

Even after years of practical tests the spherical fibres have convinced us completely. In the interest of the health of our four-legged companions, a dog bed should consist of a really high-quality filling and be durable.

 

Paspel & Co.

Our DandyBeds and DandyPlaids are manufactured with a circumferential piping, also often called piping.

 

The piping not only looks good and accentuates the shape, but also serves to reinforce the seams and makes our beds and blankets even more resistant.

We only use tested zippers that can withstand tension. Since our cushions are thickly filled, they must be able to easily absorb all movements and loads.

The base material of our DandyBeds is a particularly densely knitted fabric with enormous 120,000 Martindale rubbing strokes and particularly seam-stable, so that even scratches from dog claws cannot harm it.

 

Boxbett

For the shape of our dog beds we have decided on the proven box bed form. The side edge not only provides protection and support for the dog, but also protects the wall of the room from possible dirt and moisture from the dog's fur. The low entrance at the front allows small but also sick and older dogs to get comfortably into their DandyBed.

In contrast to most other dog beds, our DandyBeds are bulgingly filled with ball fibres. So the side and inner cushions can withstand the pressure of large and heavy dogs and remain especially stable. Thanks to the bulky filling, the dog still feels cuddly and secure in its DandyBed.

DandyPlaid

Our DandyPlaids are made from the same materials as our DandyBeds. This means that you can choose a blanket that matches the design of a DandyBed. Many dog owners, for example, put a blanket over their dog bed during puppyhood or illness as protection. But also on the sofa and bed, when travelling, in the car or in a restaurant, the blankets offer a comfortable and stylish way to lie down for your dog.

All DandyPlaids are provided with a fluffy volume fleece insert. Thick enough for soft, joint-gentle lying but thin enough for easy folding and stowing.

Design

We place the highest value on design. Yes also with dog beds. We are of the opinion that a dog bed should also fit harmoniously and stylishly into our interior design. After all, an XL-DandyBed, for example, almost takes on the dimensions of a sofa. So you want it to match your personal style.

That is why we are constantly looking for new fabrics throughout Europe, which meet our quality standards and reflect the most diverse styles of interior design.

 

Structure of a DandyBed

 

All our DandyBeds are built on the same principle:

 

1 design cover, which can be removed thanks to a circumferential zipper

 

4 individual stable and removable side cushions

 

1 removable and reversible inner cushion, equipped with 5 stitching points to prevent the filling from slipping

 

Laundry tips

Each side cushion incl. filling, the inner cushion incl. filling and the design cover of our DandyBeds can be washed at least at 30 degrees in a normal household washing machine. Should there be any special requirements regarding washability (higher temperature resistance, stain-resistant impregnations etc.), this will be explicitly described in the description of the respective product in the online shop.

All DandyPlaids, including the volume fleece, are washable just like our DandyBeds.

Please note that especially with pure cotton fabrics a certain shrinkage and bleeding can occur during washing. Cotton is a natural product and should be pulled into shape after washing.

To avoid discolouration please wash DandyBeds and DandyPlaids only with the same colours. Do not leave to dry in the sun. Fabric softener should generally not be used for dog beds and blankets.

This way you can enjoy your new DandyBed and DandyPlaid for a long time!
