What’s up, Doc?


Q: My dog is allergic to the chemicals in most materials and I find it difficult to keep a cotton dog bed clean. Is there such a thing as a hypoallergenic dog bed? 
 
A: Absolutely, I have leather dog beds that do not attract fur and dander, and are easy to clean, soft and comfortable.
 
See www.thewoufpoof.com for their hypoallergenic leather dog beds.
 
Wouf Poof’s leather beds are made from certified, high quality material, non-toxic and anti-bacterial. Their leather is natural, not chemically treated, so it’s very hypoallergenic. 
 
In addition, leather is hygienic, so it does not attract doggy odors or dust mites, which aggravate itchy dogs. Just vacuum and wipe clean with a damp cloth and mild soap. 
 
Leather beds are low maintenance and stay beautiful for years, unlike cloth beds that get filthy and smelly, and require frequent washing.
