#MollyMutt - The Dog Bed Loved by Dogs and Dog Parents + GIVEAWAY

Being a multi-dog household, we have a lot of dog beds. In fact, we have more than any three dogs could possibly need.

Some because I fell for the style or print, and some because, quite frankly, it can be easier to buy a new bed than to clean the ones we've got. Many are just too big for the washing machine, and those that do have removable covers are often filled with messy polyfill or an ill-fitting foam insert.

Enter the bed of this Dog Mama's dream...

The Lapdogs love their #MollyMutt bed and so does their Mama! Completely washable, affordable, stylish and affordable - what's not to love? #recycle #dogbed #abedoftheirown #rescuedogs #happydogs #LapdogCreations ©LapdogCreations
"our story starts with one young woman, three muddy mutts, a couple of dirty dog beds & too many hauls to the laundromat" - Molly Mutt
Disclosure: Molly Mutt sent a Pillow Pack Kit to Lapdog Creations, free of charge, for review purposes. We only share information that we feel is relevant to our readers, and all opinions expressed are our own. Molly Mutt is responsible for the giveaway prize.

Molly Mutt is not your average dog bed. In fact, it's quite unique and innovative!

Co-founder Molly - yes, a human - was living in a small apartment perched high amongst the San Francisco hills and every time her dogs' beds got dirty, it was a challenge to get them to the laundromat. She thought there had to be a better way... and Molly Mutt was born!

#MollyMutt was built on the concept of "stuff. sniff. snooze." Check out #LapdogCreations review of the unqiue #dogbed

Molly Mutt was built on the concept of "stuff. sniff. snooze." and features a full line of eye-catching duvet covers and accessories. The covers are durable, washable, affordable, and because you stuff them with old clothing and linens, environmentally friendly as well! You're not just helping the environment when you stuff the duvet with your old tees, blankets and pillows, however. You are also creating a truly personalized "mattress" for your dog.

We all know how much our dogs love our scent - it's evident when they're sleeping in a pile of our laundry or constantly pulling our throw blankets off the couch to cuddle with - so imagine how comforting it is for them to have a bed stuffed with their human's old t-shirts! Plus, this allows you to completely customize the mattress firmness to your dog's comfort and needs.

We received a med/large rectangular "amarillo by morning" duvet, a "fade into you" pillow pack, and a stuff sack for our review. I love the packaging and the fact that everything is so compact when it arrives (which saves on shipping costs too).

Key Benefits
  • 100% cotton canvas with zippered opening
  • Durable and Washable
  • Eco-friendly
  • Available in four sizes - petite, small, med/large, huge
  • Many attractive fabrics available
  • Unique, Easy, Affordable and Customizable

To make things quick and easy for even the busiest of dog parents, Molly Mutt offers an optional stuff sack which allows you to organize all of the stuffing inside the duvet. It also helps to shape the clothing, pillows and blankets into a "mattress" and the 100% nylon, zippered and gusseted sack fits perfectly into the duvet. I especially love this for when I just want to change the duvet - just slip the old one off and the new one on!

It's so easy to assemble your new #MollyMutt #dog bed - Just follow these easy steps! The Lapdogs think Molly Mutt beds rock! #happydogs #abedoftheirown #upcycle #rescuedogs #LapdogCreations ©LapdogCreations

Stuffing the stuff sack was pretty easy. I spent most of the time just gathering items (as you can see the Lapdogs were right there to help, every step of the way). Originally, I used several old t-shirts, 2 fleece blankets, 3 pairs of jeans and an old wool coat, which resulted in a bed that was quite heavy and probably not as soft as it could be. I've since removed the jeans, wool coat, and one blanket, replacing them with two pillows. The bed is a bit fluffier and a lot lighter.

Another optional add-on is the bolster style pillow pack. I stuffed ours with an old fleece pullover and a sweater, but you could also use worn-out dog toys and socks.  Just be sure to remove any squeakers from those dog toys... unless you want to really confuse your pup every time he lays down for a nap!

Molly Mutt offers both rectangular and round shaped duvets, as well some specifically designed for outdoor use.  They also sell their own, USA-made, all-natural deodorizing spray for dog beds, as well as some fun accessories like collars and poop-bag dispensers.

The Lapdogs are loving their Molly Mutt bed, and give it all paws up, and so does their busy Mom! Not only does it look amazing (I'm in love with this print), but it's so easy to wash. Just unzip, remove the stuff sack, and toss the duvet in the washing machine - NO fumbling with an ill-fitting foam insert or polyfill that gets everywhere! Plus, the duvets are pre-shrunk, so there's no guessing about what might happen in the dryer (note you should only dry on the low setting).

I also love how durable the covers are. It's as durable, if not more than, one from a famous Maine-based company, yet about one-third the price and way more stylish! I can't get over how many amazing fabrics Molly Mutt offers and sure had a hard time choosing one for this review. I'll actually be ordering a second duvet very soon.

I don't have a print in mind. My pup isn't particular when it comes to prints or colors. In fact, I really don't need this, just thought it might be nice to win for the shelter. I'm sure a dog there would love any print.
I do like the idea of this as I have been restuffing well loved dog beds for a while now. This idea makes it much easier to buy and ship or pack a dog bed.

Carly said...

I like the Heart of Gold duvet cover!

Lori Godbout said...

Royals with the boxer pillow!

Sue said...

We like Landslide and Rocket Man. It's a tough choice. I'm really impressed with the price and the whole idea appeals to me as a multi dog mom. I like the idea of a bed suited to the individual. Fudge needs more support because of his arthritis but Norma Jean likes a harder surface. Great product!

Cassie said...

Omgosh the midnight train one is so adorable, Jensen would love it I'm sure.

Cassie said...

Omgosh the midnight train one is adorable!!! Jensen would love it!

Ruth Epstein said...

Bleeker street one - just adorable

Sarah D. said...

I like the landslide print! Great giveaway! I've been wanting one of these for a long time!

Jans Funny Farm said...

Sounds like one of our big beds. When Jan wanted to wash it, she had to remove the inside, threw that out and stuffed the bed with old sheets.

Natalie Hartmann said...

I love the papillon print the best but all are wonderful!I like that it is durable and looks like it will be easy to keep clean.

molly pitcher said...

I think my pretty girl would love the La Vie En Rose.

Dachshund Nola said...

Love our Molly Mutt!

Daily Dog Tag said...

There are a lot of great choices, I have the title track, but if I get a bed to put on the porch, I think I'll choose the navy striped one.

djladysweeps said...

My chow-triever CHI loves the color red and great idea for dogs.

Sleepless In Charlotte said...

I would get the Wild Horses one.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We like the perfect afternoon duvet in the huge size, so Fenris will finally have a bed. We keep stealing his beds. ~The Cats & Tuiren

Marjie said...

Molly Mutt ought to love having the Lapdogs as models!

Wehaf said...

I would love to have the rocketman print cover with the fade into you pillow pack.

Karrie Millheim said...

I love the Midnight Train

Bianca Andrea said...

I am partial to the Lady in Red print :)

I like the Title Track print best

Would love to win for Lily the Jack in papillon!

evie said...

♡♥♬ Carolsue ♡♥♬ said...

For the pillow I would choose the yellow one with the dogs (Pictures of You) and for the ducet cover, Landslide Tan.

Robbi Hess said...

These look great and might keep my dogs off of the couch -- but I doubt it. I love the colors and they just look very comfy!

Edie ThePug said...

What a great idea! I like the duvet idea and being able to wash it or stuff it depending on your dogs needs. Edie sleeps in a dog bed but I keep it covered with older sheets and towels to make it easier for me to remove and wash as it gets, dare I say, smelly and dirty. I also replace her entire bed a couple of times a year.

lisalela said...

Love Lions Roar print!

AmyShojai said...

What a clever idea! Yes, my pets love laundry (they prefer the "used" hamper prior to being washed). Urk.

Diane Holland said...

Awesome contest! These are wonderful pet beds! My dogs fight over the one they already have LOL!

Elizabeth Keene said...

This is a great idea! Love the color options for covers. Your dogs look quite pleased, too!

Sweet Purrfections said...

This sounds like a wonderful pet bed. Truffle and Brulee prefer sleeping on my bed, but who knows, they may like this.

Cathy Armato said...

These beds are so pretty & functional. I love the concept of using existing materials to fill it.
Love & biscuits,
Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

Denise Gruzensky said...

I love the idea of these beds as they are so transportable and we travel a lot! I'm wondering what you would use or what would be recommended to use with a dog with arthritis like Shasta.

Kristin Avery said...

I just love these! I think I would choose the royals or amarillo by morning.

Morganna said...

What an innovative product! It must be a dream to travel with, just fill with your towel and you're good to go! I can imagine using this on road trips too! The eco-friendly aspect really grabbed my eye, the minimal packaging looks great!
Love, Talent Hounds

Bryn Nowell said...

Great post! We love Molly Mutt and I am so happy with the quality of their beds and the affordability of them. Since we recently received a bed to review, and will be donating it to the shelter, we aren't joining in on the giveaway. I hope the winner enjoys their awesome new bed!

Shelley P said...

I'd love the dream lover duvet cover.

AnnaZed said...

I love the Bleecker Street Fabric, I would buy the Crate Cover too (to match).

There are so many fun patterns but my favorite is the royals duvet cover! Such a great idea as these are easy transportable and easy to clean, two very important things!

Kyra Maludy said...

There are so many pretty and fun designs but I think my favorite is the royals duvet cover! I love that this bed would be so easy for me to transport and bring with me when I travel and that it's easy to clean!
