Why Invest in Luxury Dog Beds?
It’s easy to tell when a person hasn’t gotten enough sleep. Before that first cup of java sets in, they’re irritable, short-tempered and red-eyed.
Turns out, dogs express many of the same attributes when they’re running on fumes. According to pet experts, they’ll appear disoriented, forgetful and even grumpy!
While there are various sleep disorders, including narcolepsy, that could be getting in the way of the recommended 10 hours that Spot needs to function at his best, an ill-fitting bed can be a common culprit.
It’s important to address this issue right out the gate, as sleep is critical to your dog’s healthy brain development, learning capacity, memory and immune system.
Looking for the top brands and models you can trust? Here are some of our favourites.

With more than 20 years of experience in pet bedding design and manufacture, we at George Barclay have listened to what you, the owners, expect from a well-designed, functional dog bed. Let’s face it, us humans sleep for 6-10hours a day; we spend hundreds, if not thousands of pounds to achieve a good night’s sleep for ourselves. A dog can rest for up to 16hours a day, why would we not expect the same quality for our beloved pets.
At George Barclay we spend a great deal of time and resource, continually developing our products to withstand the rigors of daily life, yet remaining soft and comfortable for the occupant. The fabrics we use are not just soft to the touch; they are hard wearing and can be machine-washed to maintain their appearance, keeping your George Barclay bed looking & smelling like new.
George Barclay products are designed in England, with a number of items being produced at our premises in Wiltshire. We think we have thought of pretty much everything, with a choice of cushioning using hollow fibre, blended memory foam or our encapsulated pocket sprung mattress; that offers support like no other pet bed. All types of cushioning used in our beds is sourced from English suppliers, to guarantee the quality of materials being used.
In addition to our complete beds, we offer a selection of replacement covers. These are a great option for when your original dog bed cover is being washed, or to spruce up your current George Barclay dog bed with a different colour/style of cover.
George Barclay pet products are an affordable investment towards your pet’s good health and happiness. We are so confident your best friend will love our products; if he or she does not like their George Barclay bed, return it to us within 28 days for a full refund!

DOG BEDS FOR REAL DOGS
Working my dogs, thinking about dogs and loving dogs as pets, means that their welfare is very much on my mind. Most dogs, when they are not worked, walked or played with, are fairly idle. They spend a lot of time sleeping on their beds. So the dog bed is an important piece of dog equipment. To keep a happy, active and healthy dog for as long as possible, a good bed with excellent insulation from the cold floor, is vital.
Here at Tuffies we make only top notch products. All our base fabrics are top quality waterproof fabrics. Our 1000 denier texturised Nylon "Durasoft fabric" has an extra heavy polyurithane waterproof coating custom-made for Tuffies in order to give optimum performance for the dog bed application.Several of our soft cover fabrics are also purpose-made for Tuffies' quality-demands.
Our Nest dog beds are sturdy, waterproof and warm and come with a Luxury Fleece covered futon mattress in the middle.
If you are looking for the type of dog beds where absolutely no dog hairs stick and if you want to be able to spot clean (slobber, grease etc) from your dog beds, the Wipe Clean type is ideal. This fabric feels like a waxed jacket, so it is smooth and subtle. It is a double coated acrylic polyester, 100% waterproof so you can hose down and spot clean these dog beds. If you are looking for dog beds that are made from a more upholstery-like material with extreme durability, have a look at our Durasoft Tuffie nests.
