    Some dogs just cannot be trusted with a regular bed. Notorious chewers will make short work of traditional stuffed beds, so you will have to try something a bit more durable if you want to keep the stuffing in and the dog teeth out. Kong’s chew-resistant dog bed promises greater durability than traditional dog beds, but follows many of the same general cleaning practices.

    Step 1

    Vacuum the bed cover thoroughly. This helps remove dirt, debris and hair from the bed before you run it through the wash.

    Step 2

    Unzip the nylon outer cover and remove it from the bed.

    Step 3

    Wash the nylon cover in your washing machine with cold water. Wash the cotton liner on hot, separately.

    Step 4

    Place both the cotton liner and the nylon cover in the dryer and let them tumble dry.

    Step 5

    Put the liner back inside the cover and zip it closed once both are dry.
