Dog Bed Review Molly Mutt

Making your own dog bed with Molly Mutt is super easy…in fact the only hard part for us was deciding which of their 25+ beautiful and stylish designs to choose!

If you haven’t already heard about Molly Mutt, you might be wondering exactly what this DIY Dog Bed is and why you’d want one. Daisy and I will explain.

How Molly Mutt works
  • Molly Mutt makes individual components that you can buy separately and use together to create your own dog bed, or cover an old one to give it a brand new look! These include: the Molly Mutt 100% Cotton Duvet Cover, the Mesh Stuff Sack, and the Armor Water-Resistant Liner.

DIY Dog Bed Kit

If you’re looking to just cover an old dog bed, you can skip the Stuff Sack, but if you want to truly create your own dog bed, you can use old t-shirts, pillows, towels, coats, blankets, pajamas…basically anything that you have lying around taking up space that you want to get rid of, and stuff it all into the mesh Stuff Sack to hold all your stuff together and create a custom dog bed for your fur kid. It also makes it super easy to wash since you can just throw the whole sack in the wash!

I did a full KonMari when we moved last year, so I didn’t have a ton of stuff to stuff in the sack, but I did have some extra pillows and a knitted blanket that was all snagged up thanks to Daisy’s claws!

We need some new towels, so as soon as we get them, some of the old ones will get added to Daisy’s new Molly Mutt bed to make it just a little bit firmer. That’s what I love about it: not only do you get to re-use old stuff and reduce waste that would end up in landfills, but you also have complete control in customizing the firmness of your dog’s bed. Daisy likes her bed kind of medium, but you can make your dog bed squishy or firm, or whatever your pup likes!

The armor lining goes over the mesh stuff sack, and then the duvet cover goes over that. Everything zips up and fits nicely…super quick and easy, like changing a pillow case.

The other really neat part is that it’s also super easy to clean. You just zip off the duvet cover and cold water wash, tumble dry low. And, as long as whatever you’ve stuffed your sack with is machine washable, you can throw all that in the wash as well. Using the Armor inner liner helps keep the stuffing dry and clean, and is also great for older dogs and those prone to accidents. We’re using Daisy’s new bed both inside and out on our patio, so it’s great having the water-resistant liner for the bed. Even though it’s a covered patio, stuff can still get damp when it rains…which happens a lot this time of year in South Florida! If you like using your dog’s bed outdoors then we highly recommend you get the Armor liner.

Daisy Molly Mutt

Molly Mutt dog beds come in 4 sizes: petite under 15 lbs, small 15 – 30 lbs, med/large 30 – 70 lbs, and huge over 70 lbs. As I mentioned, the hardest part is choosing which design…they are all so gorgeous. Visit mollymutt.com to see them all and choose a style that fits your home decor and your dog’s unique personality!

We Review the NEW Dyson V6 Top Dog Cordless Vacuum for Pet Homes

Dyson V6 Top Dog

Thanks to the folks over at Dyson, we got our paws on their brand new Dyson V6 Top Dog handheld vacuum cleaner. It’s just launched for sale, but they sent it to us early so that we could test it out and share our experiences with you!

#DogHairEverywhere

Pet parents know that the cleaning battle against pet hair is real, and not to be taken lightly. Keeping the fuzz factor under control takes constant vigilance and the best tools you can find. Even for a short-haired dog, Daisy sure does shed a lot, and every time I turn around there is a new pile of fur on some piece of furniture, throw pillow, rug or floor.

Although we vacuum a few times a week, and I run our Roomba almost daily (especially helpful for under the beds, night stands and dresser, I’m constantly finding NEW Daisy hair wherever I go. I could make a Daisy clone with the amount of fur she sheds in an average week! Having a cordless handheld pet vacuum has really been a game changer. No more having to pull out the upright vac and attachments for small jobs…I just grab my Dyson handheld, pull the trigger, and zap the spot.

Being cordless makes it super fast and hassle-free to clean up a corner, her dog bed, and our patio furniture. And being so easy means I’m much more likely to clean up little messes before they turn into big ones!

I’m impressed with how much time I’m saving on routine chores like vacuuming Daisy’s dog bed. Doing it weekly, it now only takes about 2-3 minutes to really remove all the fur she’s shed since the last time I did it. The speed is due to how powerful the suction is as well as the design of the mini motorized tool. The bin holds more than other hand vacs I’ve tried, which is also a time saver because there’s no stopping to empty it or clear the filter. Here’s a shot with a full bin from doing her dog bed today.

Dyson V6 Full Capacity

For clean hands and convenience, the vacuum is designed with a quick release button to empty the bin while holding it over the trash. I also really like that the filter is washable and meant to last a lifetime. That saves on waste and extra costs since I’ll never need to buy replacement filters.
