I need 1 each. I’m looking at tuffie nest beds but they are about £120 each.
One dog is a Vizsla the other is a smaller gsp.
Need them to last and be durable.
Any ideas. They’ve slept on a sofa in my kitchen for 4 years but the sofa is going by soon.
They don’t chew or wreck anything and I like be the look of a Tuffie just not the price

Mine has a double 13 tog duvet, folded in half and then in half again. I made a cover out of something similar to this.

We have spent hundreds on beds over the years including orvis and another one similar to tuffies that I can't remember the name of.

Dog has never chewed one but when I get to the point of struggling to get rid of the smell of a dog that walks on muddy farm tracks every day I end up swapping them for a new one.

Forgot to say that apart from costing about £30 you can wash and tumble dry the quilt and wash the outer in tech wash and there is no doggy smell.

I bought this one for my lab. I took an extra cover and the waterproof lining. It is fantastic.

I prefer one more like a nest than a flat bed.
The dogs like to be wrapped up at night! 🙄
The Trojan ones linked above are much more reasonable in price than a Tuffie nest

My tuffies is now 7 years old and still in use and poofy.

Orvis are pricey but very hard wearing, we've had ours for 4 years with a big fat lab in it
