SlumberBall Alternative? For you and your dog

Recommended Posts

I have no personal experience with this but am sharing because I think it's neat. Wicked expensive but there is a 20% off coupon for first-time shoppers and there are currently some items on sale. CordaRoy's Convertible Bean Bag looks like a slumber ball alternative for you and your dog!

When my efforts to sew a slumber ball for my dogs turned into a frustrating "cuss-fest", I bought a CordaRoy's dog bed.  CordaRoy's Dog Bed  I got the 40" round bed.  They are expensive but wonderful--perhaps a genuine "lifetime" bed.  The cover is very heavy, sturdy, upholstery denim and washes nicely.  The stuffing is good quality chipped foam.  The company will send additional foam free of charge if the bed arrives and isn't a fluffy as you'd like.   I was impressed enough with the first bed that I bought as second when I added another hound to the family.  Both dogs dig and nest vigorously and these beds have held up splendidly.  They're very sturdy and well made, though clearly not as much fun as the bed-in-chair that Jan posted above.

Lucy :lol

Srsly, did your pups get in/out of the bed easily? I worry about the seniors having trouble navigating filling such as chipped foam, anything too tall, too wobbly, etc. TIA

You should have seen me trying to reconstruct a futon which had apparently spontaneously exploded (at least that's what Merc said).

:blush  It was really a stinking project--a complete, embarrassing series of failures.  I'm not as polite and careful as I used to be. :lol:

Jan, Spirit is 13 and getting noticeably wobbly and frail but he manages these beds with no trouble at all. The beds do smush down somewhat and develop a dog-shaped divot area, though the beds are both well over a year old and are still nice and fully stuffed.  Also, the cover and liner have sturdy zippers and it is easy to adjust the amount of filling to get them to be a bit more giving and thinner.  One of mine arrived looking like the website's photos--very stuffed and full.  The other arrived much flatter. I did add more stuffing to that one, but it's not a full as the other bed. Nate and Spirit don't really seem to care which bed they end up snoozing in, so removing a bit of stuffing doesn't seem to reduce the comfort.

Wow.  Glad Merc wasn't hit by any of that shrapnel ;)

I think my Amelia would attack and rip that thing up.

I tried a fluffy style bed and she attacked it and acted like it was a big toy!

Here is a picture of the Cordaroy bed in use by a real live hound.  This is the bed that came plusher to start with.

I got Sweep a new Cordaroy insert for her slumberball cover (her ortho slumberball is still doing great, but the cheapo* slumberball was pretty flat), and it's awesome! No issues for her 10-year-old self getting in or out. It's a cheaper option if you have an existing cover that more or less fits and just need new "guts." They're still offering 20% off too. Thanks for the post, Miss Jan! :bow 

* Can't remember its real name. :lol Not the original and not the ortho. Has a sherpa cover and the stuffing is just loose polyfill which made washing the cover a pain. No more!
