Is This Dog Bed Really Eco-Friendly?
According to Harry Barker, the dog bed’s made with eco-friendly materials using sustainable manufacturing processes. The dog bed cover, created with cotton and jute, is made with natural and earth-friendly dyes that are also hypoallergenic. Plus, the insert is stuffed with eco-fiberfill made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles.
We picked four Dodo pups who love snuggling up on soft surfaces, along with some parents who were looking for dog beds that looked nice in their homes.
Did our dogs like the bed?
When it comes to its promises of being durable, easy to clean and comfy enough for your pups, we think this bed totally delivers.
“I'm seriously impressed that Maki likes it so much, as she's literally refused to use other beds before, and that the insert hasn't shown any signs of getting out of shape.” — Sylvie K.
What We Love About The Harry Barker Envelope Dog Bed
It’s high quality
An important factor of any dog bed is durability. This dog bed isn’t just comfy for our pups, but it’s durable enough to hold up to scratching, digging and other typical doggie behavior.
“The fabric is well stitched together and made out of a heavy canvas-like material which seems like it'll hold up really well to wear and tear. The insert is very fluffy and fills out the cover nicely — it hasn't lost any of its shape so far. The stripes also line up nicely; this is clearly a very high-quality dog bed.” —Sylvie K.
It’s easy to open
The bed sets itself up in no time. After taking it out of the package, all you have to do is let it expand for a few minutes, and you’re all set.
“I found the packaging first and foremost to be super easy and not overwhelming! It was so nice to be able to just let the cushion expand after opening the box.” — Olivia S.
It’s easy to clean
With a removable cover that you can pop right in the washing machine, this dog bed is very easy to clean. It’s also prewashed and preshrunk, so you won’t ever have to worry about struggling to get it back on.
“I think this is a great product! It looks good in our house and is easy to clean (an important thing when you have a dirty dog who sheds A LOT).” — Lily F.
It looks good in the house
While some dog beds can be a bit boring, this dog bed is stylish enough to be a beautiful piece added to your decor, not just another one of your dog’s things.
“I also really like the design and colors. Very minimalistic. Very chic. Compliments our apartment well.” — Alejandro A.
Our picky dogs loved it
One of our pickiest testers, Kamaka, is notorious for hating new dog beds.
“She is EXTREMELY PICKY when it comes to beds. We've actually tried three others (one from Chewy, one from Costco, one from our pet store), and she literally refused to get on them, much less sleep on them.” — Sylvie K.
And in true Kamaka fashion, she did have a little issue with this one at first.
“She threw a tantrum for about 20 minutes, which is totally on HER, not the bed, because she's a husky diva.” — Sylvie K.
But after some time, Kamaka warmed up to the bed — something she typically doesn’t do — so we’re pretty convinced this bed has magical powers.
“I think she realized how comfy it was pretty fast, and within an hour, she was sitting and laying down on it. Within a day or two, it was business as usual, and she was lounging all over it, clearly super comfortable and happy!” — Sylvie K.
Since Harry Barker is committed to making eco-friendly products, this dog bed is no exception … and our testers loved that!
“Additionally, as a super environmentally friendly, hypoallergenic advocate person, I love that this is eco-friendly!” — Olivia S.
It’s a little pricey
This bed might feel a bit expensive, which can be risky considering some pups tend to be picky with the beds they like.
“I am not sure if I'd spend this much for a dog bed without trying it out first and knowing my dog will actually use it.” — Alejandro A.
But when you get a bed like this, you know you’re getting your pup something that’s high quality, durable and eco-friendly.
“This product is not mass-produced and it's built to last. I think it would make a great gift or would be a good purchase if you REALLY want to spoil your pup.” — Lily F.
It has a funky smell at first
When you first open the package, there might be a weird smell. Luckily, it seems to go away over time — so no biggie.
“It does have kind of a weird smell when you open it that doesn't go away after a wash for about a week.” — Sylvie K
Is It Worth It?
When it comes to the price tag, this is definitely a luxury product. Knowing that, we still recommend it based on how much our pups, their parents and the environment benefits from using it.
“I think the price is definitely out of reach for a majority target audience, but for those looking for an investment and not ‘just any dog bed,’ the price seems fine.” — Olivia S.
“It's one of only two beds she's ever liked! We will definitely be keeping this and using it.” — Sylvie K.
How big is this dog bed?
The Harry Barker Envelope Dog Bed is offered in three sizes — small, medium and large.
- Small bed measures: 24 inches width by 30 inches length by 4 inches height
- Medium bed measures: 26 inches width by 36 inches length by 4 inches height

How do I wash a dog bed?
When it comes to the Harry Barker Envelope Dog Bed, washing couldn’t be any easier! Just remove the cover and throw it in the washing machine on the gentle cycle.
To dry it, you can let it air dry or tumble dry on low. The insert can be spot cleaned.
Why do dogs dig in their beds?
A totally normal and natural habit, dogs dig in their beds for three main reasons: She’s denning, she’s trying to cool off or she’s making a spot extra comfy to curl up in.
In the matter of her bed, it’s probably the latter. And while digging is normal, it can also make beds tear apart pretty fast. That’s why the Harry Barker bed is perfect for diggers — it’s built to withstand that nightly routine.
