    1. Dear Linda Cooper
      Thank you for contacting gharpedia.

      Well for dogs, they usually tend to chew their beds, and some of them have exceptionally sharp teeth and claws. They would puncture the average bean bag and have it torn to shreds in no time.
      The strongest and most effective fabrics for bean bags meant for pets are nylon and polyester, which may be coated with other materials to enhance their durability and resistance to harmful conditions. Never use the cheap beanbags of 400 D – Denier nylon (Denier is a unit of measurement that is used to determine the fiber thickness of individual threads or filaments used in the creation of textiles and fabrics). Try to use minimum 600D nylon fabric and more are always welcome. As, this material is resistant to water and stains
      Additional coatings can also be very beneficial when it comes to bean bag dog beds, like:
      1.PVC or PU Coating – This improves the durability and gives the additional weather resistance.
      2. Antimicrobial Treatment – Antimicrobial and antifungal agents can be applied to the raw fabric and woven into the bean bag to resist the growth of bacteria, mold & algae, that are helpful for the health of your pets.
      We hope this is helpful for you. For more detailed information you must visit your nearest shop.

      Thanking You
