One of the most convenient features of our calming dog beds, nap mats, and blankets is that they are machine washable. While most of our pet beds have similar washing instructions, there are certain details to take note of. This post breaks down how to wash each of our products from our small dog beds to our removable shag covers.
How to Wash the Best Friends by Sheri Calming Donut Dog Bed
Let's begin with our most popular bed -- the calming donut dog bed. Thanks to its round shape and pet-safe materials, our high-quality Donut Cuddler dog and cat bed is ideal for pets who love to curl up. The raised rim creates a sense of security and provides head and neck support, while the super-soft filling offers joint and muscle pain relief. Deep crevices and soft shag material are reminiscent of snuggling up to a mother's fur coat.
Care instructions for washing your donut dog bed depends on what size you have. If you have a small dog and ordered either our 17" x 17" or 23" x 23" faux fur pet beds, then the entire bed can be put into a washer. Our larger sizes for medium and large dogs (30" x 30", 36" x 36", and 45" x 45") come with removable covers that are to be washed separately from the poly filling.
Machine wash cold on the gentle cycle. Tumble dry on low heat.
NOTE: Pet owners should not air-dry the shag fur bed or cover in order to prevent matting.
Once clean and dry, you and your pet can resume all the cuddles and superior comfort their calming, self-warming dog bed has to offer.
TIP: If your donut dog bed arrived in a vacuum seal, toss in the dryer for about five minutes to fluff the Airloft fibers.
How to Wash Our Nap Mats
Our nap mat dog beds are made with CertiPUR-US certified orthopedic foam and come with removable covers. The base is dirt-resistant and water-resistant to protect floors from accidental messes, but when it's time for a wash, simply unzip the cover!
The microfiber, shag, velvet, and lux fabric covers are safe to machine wash and dry. Machine wash cold on the gentle cycle. Tumble dry on low heat.

The Pet Throne, Deep Dish Cuddler, and Cuddle Cup dog and cat bed styles do not have removable covers but are compact enough to be put in a washing machine. Machine wash on cool gentle cycle, tumble dry.
TIP: To ensure even drying, add tennis balls or dryer balls to your dryer.
