Presenting one of our most popular doggy products in the Wet Nosed Friends range - our totally GORGEOUS shabby driftwood dog beds, complete with fitted cushions and printed bone plaque.... just PAWESOME!

Handcrafted in the UK, these rustic beds have been carefully styled to coordinate with our incredibly popular doggy toy boxes (see our other listings) to produce the ultimate pooch-friendly furniture for your four-legger.

This particular bed has been finished in our signature shade of 'Driftwood Brown', which is a natural, light sandy shade, stained then gently distressed by sanding back to reveal the natural woodgrain underneath. Please note, as all beds are hand-stained, there will be small variations in the finished colour effects from batch to batch.
To order the 'Beachcomber Grey' colour, please purchase from our other listings https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SallyGristArtwork?ref=seller-platform-mcnav§ion_id=19482546


BONE PLAQUE OPTIONS:
The bone-shaped plaque on the front is also printed by hand, and the little pawprints are made from pebbles collected from coastal walks and woodland footpaths. Plaques can be ordered with a choice of wording, choose between:
• 'Doggy Dozing'
• 'Dog Tired'
• Or alternatively, why not order a customised plaque for just £10 extra? Just select 'Custom wording' from the drop-down menu, then leave a note with the EXACT wording required when you check out.


BEDDING OPTIONS ARE:
Included in the price of your bed, your pampered pooch will receive a complete set of snuggly cushions, custom-made to fit the dimensions of the wooden crate exactly, and completely removable and machine washable. All cushions are made in our excloooosive Wet Nosed Friends 100% cotton print that coordinate pawfectly with the driftwood, beachy theme. You can choose between:
• Pebble pawprints and 'Wet Nosed Friends' on a darker patchwork background
• Pebble pawprints and 'Wet Nosed Friends' on a plain cream background

Each cushion pack comprises of a two-part mattress with two zipable compartments, so you can remove the cushion inners and wash the covers. Plus you get two extra scatter cushions (fully washable) for maximum snuggliness. And what's more, we've been very careful to design our mattress so that the whole thing is actually reversible... you can flip it upside-down and use both ways up, for extended use between washes!



CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
• The main cushions can be unzipped and removed and machine washed.
• The little scatter cushions can be machine washed in their entirety.
• You can also purchase extra cushions so you can have a spare set for wash day (see our other listings)
• The wooden crate can be wiped down, its rustic nature is extremely forgiving regarding scratches, chews and any other features it may be subjected to by your enthusiastic pet!
•We recommend that you supervise all dogs, especially small dogs and puppies, as small pebbles are included in the design.


SIZE:
This is our LARGE dog bed and is suitable for medium-large dogs such as Beagles, large Cockapoos or Springer Spaniels. It measures 75cm x 54cm x 25cm (29.5" x 20.5" x 10")
Please note, these are the external measurements, bear in mind the actual sleeping area is slightly reduced with the cushions in place, although obviously these are quite squashy and most dogs just lay over the top of them!

***Our model, Barley, is a Lakeland Terrier and she stands at 36cm (14”) shoulder to floor. This bed is much larger than she needs, she could probably squeeze a friend in there too! ***

Please see our other listings to purchase other sizes:
SMALL: 50cm x 36cm x 19cm (Suitable for puppies or little dogs such as Toy Poodles, Chihuahuas, Jack Russells or Pugs)
MEDIUM - 60cm x 44cm x 19cm (23.5" x 17" x 8") Suitable for small-medium dogs such as Miniature Schnauzers, Fox Terriers or Cocker Spaniels)


HOW OUR EXCLOOOSIVE DOG BEDS ARE MADE:
Every bed has been constructed by hand by professional crafters, using Pine and Spruce softwood from British or Scandinavian sustainable forests. The natural rustic finish is achieved by staining or painting with eco-friendly chalk paint, that is then sanded down to reveal the natural woodgrain beneath. Naturally occurring knots, minor holes, cracks and grain irregularities are a regular feature of our rustic finish. This combination of natural materials and hand craftsmanship means that every bed will have its own distinctive character and charm and each will be 100% unique!
The washable fabric cushions are also designed and made entirely in the UK. By purchasing one of these original and exclusive items, you are supporting small, independent British businesses (and their dogs!)


INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
These dog beds are exclusively made in the UK, but despite their heavy weight and bulky size, we CAN ship them worldwide!
If the shipping cost seems high to your country, please bear in mind that you can add as many extra items to your order for NO EXTRA POSTAGE CHARGE as long as I can fit them in the parcel with your dog bed.

This seller usually responds within a few hours.

I am often asked if I can supply my items to third parties such as 'drop shipping' websites and other pet-related businesses. Unfortunately I'm not able to do this at this moment. As my items are all handmade, I can't manufacture enough quantity to supply wholesale and there isn't enough of a profit margin to enable me to sell at a reduced price anyway. So sorry!
YES! I ship worldwide from the United Kingdom. If you can't find a shipping price to your country on the item listed, just contact me and I'll work it out.
Unfortunately some of my larger items such as the dog beds and toy boxes are VERY expensive to ship, but there's nothing I can do about this. Please understand that these items are very large and very heavy. If I could ship them for less I would!
Sorry, no I don't sell these materials separately.
These unique components help make my products instantly recognizable, and form the basis of the Wet Nosed Friends brand that I've worked hard to create. I'm striving to be original and exclusive, and to meet a high standard of craftsmanship. Therefore I feel that selling bits of my designs for customers to do their own DIY, might dilute my brand and my products in a way that I'm not keen to do.
I get MANY requests to donate items, but my funds are already very tight as it's hard to make a living as an artist. Even so, I already organise fundraisers of my own, and donate many products to personally selected charities throughout the year.
I generally don't donate items to strangers, but prefer to prioritise requests from paying customers over anyone else. It seems only fair that I make a sale from the arrangement, rather than just sending out a neverending stream of freebies at my own expense.
So if you wish to combine your request with a purchase from my shop, you'll stand a far greater chance of achieving a donation than if you're a stranger who's never actually supported my business. I always look after my customers first!
The best way to determine whether our dog beds will fit your dog is to measure your dog's current bed and see how that compares. I also recommend having a look through my Facebook album of 'happy customers'. where you'll find lots of pics of different dogs in our beds, to give a better idea of scale: (copy this link and paste into your browser: https://goo.gl/SnPZdd )

The largest size we currently make is 75 x 54 x 25cm (29.5 x 20.5 x 10") externally, minus around 20cm inside for the snuggly cushion walls.

If you're between sizes, always go for the larger size. A bed that's too small can be cramped and uncomfortable, but if it's too big and you can just pad it out with extra snuggly cushions, blankets, toys, or even a companion!
