Project Blu Dog Bed FAQs
Do dogs need beds?
Dogs definitely need their own dog beds! Dogs sleep between 8-14 hours per day, and when they’re not sleeping, they spend plenty of time lounging and resting. Providing them with a dedicated dog bed will help them be comfortable and cozy when sleeping through the night or catching an afternoon nap. It also becomes a safe space that they can call their own and retreat to if they are feeling stressed or overwhelmed. The right dog bed will also help keep your own furniture and bed cleaner, more hygienic, and fur free. Plus, you’ll sleep better at night if your dog isn’t wedged between your legs!
Do you offer washable dog beds?
Yes, both our mattress and bolster-style eco-friendly dog beds have removable covers that can be put in the washing machine for easy cleaning. Simple, right?
How to clean a dog bed?
To clean a dog bed, it’s a good idea to wipe up any excess spills or dirt first. You can do this with a damp cloth or paper towel. If there are any visible stains on the dog bed, treat it with a stain removal spray or solution. Once wiped down and treated for stains, you can remove the cover and place it into the washing machine. Make sure your machine is set to cold when washing. Once the cycle is done, take out the bed, shape it, and allow your dog bed to air dry for best results. Keep in mind that Project Blu dog bed covers are machine washable, but not all dog beds can be put in the washing machine.
Do you offer calming beds for dogs?
Our bolster dog beds may help pets who are dealing with minor stress and anxiety. The raised sides (bosters) of these calming dog beds can create a sense of security for dogs and allow dogs to burrow and really snuggle in, which may settle their nerves. If your dog suffers from severe anxiety, a dog bed likely won’t solve the problem and you should contact a certified behaviorist or dog trainer for some help.
What size dog beds do you have available?
Project Blu’s dog beds are designed to cater to dogs of all breeds and sizes, and we offer large dog beds, medium dog beds, and small dog beds. Our mattress-style beds are available in two sizes: a Medium size (23.6 inches), which is great for small and medium dogs; and a Large size (27.5 inches), which cater to large-breed dogs. Our bolster dog beds come in four different sizes: Small (17.7 inches); Medium (23.6 inches); Large (27.5 inches); and X-Large (33.4 inches).
What size dog bed do I need?
To get the best fitting bed for your dog, it’s helpful to measure your dog from their nose to the start of their tail with a flexible tape measure. Once you have that measurement, you may want to add a few inches on for added comfort. You’ll want your dog to fit in the bed when stretched out and relaxed. Mattress beds can accommodate dogs of different sizes better than bolster beds, so pay close attention to your dog’s measurements when choosing a bolster bed, since you won’t want your dog squished on the sides!
Why do dogs scratch their bed?
Dogs who scratch, dig, and circle in their beds do so because it’s a natural instinct. In the wild, our pet dog’s ancestors used to make their beds out of leaves, twigs, dirt, and other natural materials. They would scratch at the earth to shape the materials into a comfortable area where they could lie down. Dogs also have scent glands in their paws, so when they scratch their beds, they are essentially marking their territory and claiming the bed as their own. Luckily, Project Blu’s dog beds are made from high-quality, durable material to stand up to light scratching!
How can I stop my dog from chewing his bed?
Many dogs—especially puppies—like to explore the world and their surroundings with their mouths. And chewing on their beds is just part of the experience. To stop dogs from chewing their beds, it’s important to work on training. If you see your dog chewing on his bed, redirect that behavior to an appropriate chew toy, offering treats and praise when your dog is chewing on the toy. You can also add a short, loud noise—like an “Ahhh” or a “Eeep”— if you see this behavior as a way to direct your dog’s attention to you. Once your dog has eyes on you, offer praise, a treat, and provide an appropriate chew toy or bone. Additionally, it’s helpful to exercise your dog before bedtime and expend plenty of energy throughout the day.
