About Us

The Life of Riley’s story began in 2015 with a focus on making a sustainable dog bed that ticked all the boxes.. Fast forward to 2022 - New owners Steen, Georgia (and Siberian Husky Layla) - have rapidly expanded The Life of Riley range to now include dog treats, toys, accessories and more that are loved by humans and pooches worldwide! 

As humans, there might be nothing that we love more (and nothing more important), than a good night’s rest in a comfortable bed. Time and time again, studies have shown the importance of quality sleep… But what about dogs? Dogs, on average, need more sleep than a person does, which means a good dog bed is essential for their health and happiness! We are confident we have hit the nail on the head with creating the perfect dog bed… A superior wool-filled dog bed that embraces timeless design, functionality and the needs of our beloved fur babies.

We believe in durability, comfort and sustainability, which is why our hero ingredient is NZ Wool. Our wool filling is recycled from the textile industry, biodegradable, and offers many incredible benefits:

  • Wool is thermoregulating, making it perfect for all seasons
  • Wool is naturally odour resistant
  • The resiliency of wool provides even weight support so there is less pressure on painful joints and muscles (great for dogs with arthritis)

Our removable dog bed covers are 100% cotton corduroy and machine washable making cleaning your dog’s bed a breeze. We also have a vast range of colours, sizes and styles as we know that when it comes to dogs, one size definitely does not fit all!

Enjoying high-quality products and a friendly kiwi customer experience is number one at The Life of Riley, which is why we pride ourselves on having our beds designed and manufactured right here in New Zealand. All our products are handled with care and shipped from our Auckland warehouse by us too! If you ever have any questions or concerns, rest assured we are the ones replying to your emails or answering the phone.

It’s no secret that a dog really is man’s best friend. That being said, it’s important that our pups have the same luxury of comfortable, adaptive, and quality bedding. With our famous wool dog beds, we hope to continue to provide the perfect bed for your dog’s much-needed sleep. We want to help all dogs across the globe experience living “The Life of Riley" - A luxurious & carefree life that every dog deserves.
