Ever wanted to really pamper your pooch? Slumbering Hound create the most wonderful range of luxury dog beds and dog blankets, guaranteed to make every human on the planet green with envy!
When she’s not chasing a tennis ball across a field at a hundred miles an hour, Poppy dog’s favourite pastime is being a snuggle monster!
Yes, not unlike her mum, she loves her sleep – I can see why they say dogs are like their humans! So when I came across Dee Stringer the amazing talent and inspiration behind Slumbering Hound, I decided it was time Poppy needed a new dog bed in her life – any excuse to spoil my girl!
Slumbering Hound’s beautiful fabrics and cosy designs, were just too much for me to resist – that along with the many adorable images of pampered pooches enjoying Dee’s handiwork!
Slumbering Hound Dog Beds come in a range gorgeous fabrics
I deliberated, for what seemed like a ridiculous amount of time, over which bed design and colour to go for as they all look so enticing on the Slumbering Hound website (just take a look for yourself, you’ll see exactly what I mean!)
After contacting Dee and asking for her advice, (she was so obliging and helpful) I opted for a cushion bed in light grey, with a separate fleece blanket in Charcoal Grey. The lovely thing about having something handmade and bespoke, is that it can be tailor-made to you.
Honestly, I could not be more delighted with Poppy’s order (and it’s safe to say, neither could she!)
The smallest detail has been thought about
I am so impressed with the quality of Dee’s handiwork, it is simply first class. Poppy’s order arrived beautifully presented, wrapped in paw print tissue paper, with a handwritten postcard inside, adding that all important personal touch which I just love.
(I had to share a photo of the postcard with you, as we recognised a couple of our furry social media friends – Woody from The Cotswold Spaniels and Ted from Twilight Bark – aren’t they just super cute?!)
Each Slumbering Hound item is handmade and bespoke
Each item comes with its own Slumbering Hound sewn in tag and threaded through is a detachable label (making it just perfect to give as a gift – if you can bear to part with it of course!!)
It’s obvious that Dee takes so much care over her work – even the reverse side of Poppy’s cushion is neatly finished with a contrasting edging strip – her products really are in a class of their own.
Personalised Dog Beds from Slumbering Hound
Slumbering Hound’s personalised dog breed cushions come with an appliqué dog design to match the breed of your pooch. You can also have your dog’s name included too if you so wish.
As for the practicalities, the cushion cover can be removed and washed at 30 degrees. In fact, you can even purchase the cover and cushion insert separately if you need replacements.
Deep Filled Luxury Dog Beds
The cushion itself is just so comfortable. It’s deep filled with a hollow fibre stuffing making it super soft and cosy to nestle into.
I have a feeling Poppy may be sneaking downstairs in the night to sleep on it. Rather than fighting for her space in the human bed upstairs!! I can’t say I’d blame her, if Dee made human-sized beds, I’d be first in the queue!!
Slumbering Hound Luxury Dog Blankets
I wanted the fleece blanket to match the bed so that they could be used together or separately.
The blanket is so lovely and big, not to mention soft and snuggly. It’s just perfect for Poppy and I to snuggle under on the sofa together.
The blanket measures 170cm x 130cm so it’s a really great size. The thing I love about fleece blankets, as opposed to woollen ones, is that they can be washed so easily. It makes them so much more practical.
A special Gift just for my girl
As a special gift, Dee sent Poppy a bandana as a little surprise which I really will treasure forever.
Again, the quality of the material and the stitching is just fabulous. Even on an item this small, Dee has still branded her products with the cutest little paw print tag.
So if you’re looking to pamper your furry friend, sniff out Slumbering Hound for the ultimate in quality dog accessories.
It’s definitely not going to be our last purchase – I’ve already got my eye on a Deluxe Dog Snuggle Sack – well after all, a dog can never have too many accessories right?!?
