Berkeley dog mattresses come with a tough waterproof cover as standard. Here you have the option of adding a cosy overcover to your dog's Berkeley Orthopaedic Dog Mattress or Berkeley Raised Wooden Dog Bed. These optional fabric covers provide a warmer, softer feel to the bed. They simply slip on over the top of the existing waterproof cover.
In this way, your dog's new mattress has the ideal dual combination of covers - soft, breathable and warm with an inner waterproof protective cover that provides a barrier to the mattress filling becoming damp, smelly or a potential home for dust mites, fleas, mould and body oils.
These fabric overcovers are upholstery grade, machine washable (30 degrees centigrade light wash cycle, do not tumble dry) and have very high Martindale rub test ratings of 40,000 to 80,000 rubs (a measure of the durability of a fabric). They come in a choice of tartan chenille, velvet or polar fleece.
They are a fully fitted pillow case design with heavy duty Velcro closures. Zips have been avoided as they are prone to damage from chewing.
Which should I choose?
Tartan Chenille has a soft yet heavyweight construction. It looks and feels like wool but has all the advantages of polyester – machine washable and hard wearing.
Upholstery Grade Velvet is extraordinarily soft with a subtle two-tone pin stripe effect and medium crush. Machine washable and extremely hard wearing.
Anti-Pill Polar Fleece has a soft, warm yet tough finish. Excellent insulating, moisture buffering and wicking properties. Machine washable and quick drying.
Please note that these covers go on OVER the existing waterproof cover that your Barkeley Mattress came with. Do not remove the waterproof cover.
Please also note that this product is a cover only. Dog bed or mattress NOT included.
