Our tester for the Burrow Bed was Bonnie, a 6-year-old Whippet.
The burrow bed is an innovative idea, designed for those dogs with a drive to nestle into small spaces whether for warmth or safety. In Bonnie’s case she’s always seeking warmth since she is a short-haired dog living in New England. The burrow bed appeared to be the perfect solution to keep her out of our beds during the day. It’s basically two pillows in one that the dog can snuggle in between. It’s fleece covering is soft, warm and easy to remove for cleaning via the velcro closure.
The bed is a bit difficult for a larger dog to get used to. I still have to help Bonnie get into it. I think she is nervous about getting stuck on the way in since the pillows are secured tightly. Once inside, however, she sleeps cozy and comfortable for hours. Sometimes she prefers to sleep on top as well, when the need for warmth isn’t as strong. Either way, its a great bed. Perhaps in another version the maufacturer might allow opening on two ends so the dog doesn’t have to go in and turn around but could simply burrow under and stick her head out on the other end. – Doreen Howell, Marblehead, MA
