*Please Note: The pod beds will be boxed and/or vacuum-packed. This means it will arrive with a few creases - These will mostly come out over 1-2 days but you can also use a hand steamer to help speed the process along.

Shipping rates depend on the weight and qty of the items purchased and will be calculated at checkout.


CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
It is important to air the bed regularly and to flip the mattress as often as possible. (Just be weary of which side your mattress protector is on if using one) Wool naturally draws moisture away from your dog's body and regulates its temperature. So it needs air to circulate around it to dry it out. As the wool isn’t designed to get wet - We recommend that you purchase one of our waterproof mattress protectors if you are using the bed for puppy crate training or have an incontinent dog etc.

Outer Corduroy Cover:

  • Cold delicate machine wash on a cool cycle (or hand wash) We recommend using our Life of Riley "Laundry Wash"
  • Hang inside out to dry in the shade (not direct sunlight) - Do not dry in the dryer.
  • Because our covers are made from 100% cotton please don't leave them out in the sun for extended periods of time. In the long run, all fabric colours eventually fade in sunlight but cotton tends to fade easier than polyester.
  • Spare covers are available HERE
  • When putting you cover back on you will notice the shape is an OVAL, not a circle so try to align it before putting the mattress back inside.

Bolster/Snuggle Sausage: 

  • DO NOT SPIN or agitate this is very important - or the wool will move - Do not dry in the dryer. Hang inside out to dry in the shade (not direct sunlight)
  • Cold delicate machine wash on a cool cycle with NO SPIN (or hand wash) We recommend using our Life of Riley "Laundry Wash"
  • Spare Pod Snuggle sausages are available HERE

White Insert Mattress/Cushion:

  • The inner mattress can be spot-cleaned only. DO NOT remove the wool from the white inner lining and DO NOT machine wash the inner.
  • The zip is only there for when they are manufactured, it is not designed to have the wool removed.
  • The inner can also be sprayed with nature’s miracle/Odorex if needed to remove stains or odours.
  • As the bed is natural It is important to air the inner mattress regularly in the sunshine whenever you wash the cover. Make sure to dry outside properly before putting the cover back on.
  • IMPORTANT: If the wool is removed from the inner liner, you will find it extremely difficult to put it back in to lay flat again. There is also a high chance you will break the zip. We can sell replacement inner liners if this happens, but please be aware that this will be at your own expense.
  • Replacement Inner mattresses are available HERE

If cared for properly… your Life of Riley dog bed will last many years!

Great bed

This is the second pod bed we have bought, having also previously purchased the original dog beds. All have been of great quality. Love the look and easy to keep clean. More to the point, it has the thumbs up from the dog! FYI, he is a 12kg caboodle - the medium size is a great fit.

Pod Bed - Spice colour

This is our second Pod Bed and once again fabulous quality. The dog (and cat) love them. Both enjoy sleeping and snuggling in them. Thank you for your prompt delivery and great customer service. Love the cheerful colour of the Spice too.

So good I bought 2

I just purchased a second bigger one for our other dog as the first one is well loved. Now they have one each and it keeps them off the couch.

The Pod Bed

I have two dogs and bought the first pod when they were young so as they got bigger we decided they both needed one. They love them and sleep in them during the day and go into their cages at night.

The Pod Bed

While it has been an effort to train our lab-retriever puppy(4mths) to stay on her new bed in our open plan living space, she does seem to appreciate it and snuggles in, just not when something more exciting is happening.

Great quality, beautiful product

I have two different style dog beds now, I love them both for their practical easy to clean design & use of natural wool as fill. I particularly like the look of the pod style bed it looks so cosy & inviting, the dogs (& the cats! ) definitely love it

Pod bed

My dog loves her new bed, beautifully made. If could just say, an extra small would have been even better. She is a toy Schnauzer.

The animals all take turns in it including the cat. Great looking and lots of room for them to stretch out.

Great product and I love the colour. Could have gone for the larger size (13kg labradoodle) but he seems happy!
