Our Dog Bed Technology
Water Resistant Inner Liner
The bed’s inner liner, used to contain the cushioning inside a George Barclay luxury dog bed, is equipped with Moisture ShieldTM technology. The liner’s surfaces adjacent to the bed’s sleep area are backed with a waterproof PU (Polyurethane) coating, protecting the bed’s filling from moisture. This water resistant barrier remains flexible, with minimal noise, so as not to disturb dogs as they settle.
Many George Barclay pet beds are produced using our SofToughTM fabrics. These materials provide a soft, inviting surface for pets to lie on, yet are extremely durable. This is achieved by using a multi-layer fabric composition. SofTough™
The sleep area of many George Barclay dog beds has been coated with WoofWaxTM water repellent. WoofWaxTM is applied to the fabric fibres forming a flexible water repellent barrier, preventing the material from ‘wetting out’ and allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability.
To help keep George Barclay dog beds looking and smelling like new, all outer cover/covers are machine washable. Please refer to the care instructions inside the beds cover for specific washing instructions. Clean bedding will not only minimise bad odours but will also keep your dog’s skin and coat looking healthy. You may also want to consider keeping two sets of bedding so you can change everything on a weekly basis with less hassle and stress.

Hollow Fibre Cushioning
Hollow Fibre is a synthetic, man-made material, consisting of hollow strands that allow air to pass through, trapping it within the strand. The trapped air produces loft within the fibre, giving the fill its cushioning and insulation characteristics. Our beds are generously filled, to create a plump cushion with a soft to medium feel, more suited to smaller breeds.
