Coolaroo Pet Beds

One fun way to help prevent pests getting at your pets is with a Coolaroo Pet Bed. Coolaroo Pet Beds are made with a raised steel frame that keeps pets off the ground when placed on either concrete or grass. This keeps pets from sitting directly on damp grass or other areas where pets might hang out. Additionally, the cover is made with a unique knitted polyethylene fabric that is completely weatherproof and resists rips and tears. Not only will this cover never rot, mold or mildew, but it allows air to pass freely in order to prevent heat buildup and easily washes clean with water. Shop all Coolaroo Bed Sizes here.

·     Under the front legs

·     Behind their elbows

·     Also not pictured: in the ears
