West Paw Designs - Eco-Friendly, Healthy, and Comfortable Dogs Beds

Like many, I'm deeply concerned about the amount of toxins and "crap" that gets dumped daily into our environment. Living in an area of the U.S. that is very environmentally aware, I appreciate the ability to recycle virtually everything that can be recycled. (I even recycle bottle caps!)

When I walk through pet stores, I see tons of fun toys and inexpensive beds. It's a gold mine for those us of who love to spoil our pets. But how many of these are really safe? For example, think about the number of children's products made with toxic materials have been suddenly recalled in recent years. How do we know that they chemicals used are safe? And since the standards for pet products are virtually nonexistent, it's really hard to know when you're giving your pets safe and healthy toys.

That's why I'm so pleased to be able to offer the West Paw Design products on my website. This is a very eco friendly company that uses recycled products to make some of the most fun and fascinating pet products available today.

I recently added their line of dog beds and dog travel mats to my site and wanted to take the opportunity to talk about them in this page.

Eco Slumber Beds

Cushy Earth Friendly Dog Beds in Fun Patterns

the Eco Slumber BedAlong with all of the products from West Paw Design, this cushy bed combines a unique and eco friendly fabric. It's made with 85% recycled IntelliLoft fibers and then filled with 100% recycled IntelliLoft fiber fill. Literally, thousands of plastic bottles are kept from landfills with these beds.

I like this bed because it is certified safe through third party testing! It has been tested for over 100 potentially harmful substances and found to be 100% safe. The design is convenient, which makes it easy to care for. It has a zipper opening so you can easily remove the cover and toss it in the washer. It is made in the U.S. in Montana and has two attractive pattern styles available.

Orthopedic Dog Beds

Beds for Older or Injured Dogs   Green Orthopedic Dog Bed

These beds are just great for dogs that are getting on in years or who have injuries that make it hard for them to be comfortable. They're also really good for puppies whose bones are still forming.

They have rounded bolsters on 3 side for support and an open front to allow for easy access.

They're made with berber for cozy warmth and stylish strength and give good, solid support. They are stuffed with a thick denier 100% recycled IntelliLoft poly fill to add volume and create comfort without lumping or condensing.

The design is convenient, and includes a zipper closure so you can easily remove the cover for washing. Alternatively, you can put the whole bed in the washer if you want. And it's made in the U.S.A.

If you'd like to learn more about these beds, click on the picture to go to the website.

If you'd like to see the full range of their beds, you can go to the The Camping Dog website to see some of the really fun faux fabrics and patterns they've come up with.  There are a couple of beds from other manufacture These products are just great -- I really love 'em!

Wow, Hollie, I had no idea that dog beds have gotten so sophisticated, but I'm in full support of it!  That's wonderful to learn that there are eco-friendly dog beds to fit any dog's needs, so thanks for sharing!

By the way, if you look on the right side of this page, you'll noticed that I changed and added some information.  I changed the name of this topic to West Paw Designs Dog Beds (because that's what you're reviewing!), updated the wiki with information, and added the appropriate tags.  For instance, adding the tag "pets" will put this review into Lunch's pets archive.  These things can be updated by pressing on the little yellow pencil symbol.  Let me know if you have any questions, Hollie! :)

I have always loved animals and have been given the gift of being loved back by them. Seven years ago, I adopted an 8-month-old puppy who was starved and mistreated from a local shelter. In learning about … more
