Tuckered Out dog bed- Assembly Instructions & Washing Tips

Posted March 17, 2011

Need to wash your Tuckered Out dog bed?  No problem, these pet beds were designed to be washed again and again.  Watch our video that includes tips for washing, as well as shows you how to take the Tuckered Out dog bed apart and re-assemble it.

Tuckered Out dog bed washing tips:

For quick washes (cover only):

  • Machine wash on COLD/COLD.
  • Machine dry on LOW heat.
For deeper cleanings, you may wash the entire bed.  Since every washer and dryer are different, we recommend different strategies to different people.  If you have a machine that is known to be tough on clothing (catching or tearing fabric), then we suggest you leave the insert pillow in its cover during the wash. However, if your washer machine is a front loading machine with a gentle history, then you may separate the pillow insert from the cover, inspect inserts, and wash all parts:
  • Machine wash on COLD/COLD using GENTLE cycle.
  • Machine dry on LOW heat or AIR DRY. (See note #2 below)

Important washing & drying notes:

  1. If there is a tear in the white covering, or if an area of weakness is noticed, be sure to have these areas fixed or replaced before washing. If a damaged pillow is washed, the IntelliLoft® fill could clog drains (not to mention is no fun to clean up). 
  2. When drying our larger size dog beds, be sure that the bed is freely tumbling.  If one area of the bed is pushed against the heating element and does not freely tumble, the heat could damage the fabric.
  3. Be sure to "zip close" any zippers. This helps protect the zipper during the wash and gives it a longer life.
