[Review] Sheri Deep Dish Cuddler Pet Bed
Best Friends by Sheri Deep Dish Cuddler is a pet bed that gives your dog a cozy, soft place where to snuggle and feel secure.
The bed is made from ultra soft and fluffy Sherpa fabric, providing your dog a very pleasant and warm area where to sleep and rest. The design is made to cuddle your dog with one higher rear wall of 12” that gives your pet back support and a front 9” high lower wall where your pet can rest its chin.
This dog bed is safely machine washed and dried as a one piece, making it easy to maintain the bed free of hair and bad odors.
The bed’s underneath base is made from durable silky soft oxford fabric that does not collect lint or dust.

Suitability for this pet bed has been described for dogs weighing up to 25 lbs, but this measurement is a little optimistic. If you want to comfortably accommodate your dog with support around its body, this unit is suitable for dogs weighing up to 15 lbs. If your dog curls up in a ball when sleeping, the bed may hold dogs weighing up to 17 lbs. approx. If you want your pet to have more room inside the bed, the suitability shortens for dogs weighing up to 13 lbs.
As you can see, dog size suitability will depend on how much room you want your dog to have in its sleeping area.
Another point to consider is that the smaller the dog, the higher the wall will be for him or her. Also, its lighter body may make the bed fold over him or her. If used with small dogs (up to 13 lbs), use the unit over a couch or any soft surface where you can accommodate the bed straight up.
CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS
Best Friends by Sheri Deep Dish Cuddler is made from polyester and its shape is a little more oval than round.
The bed bottom is filled with ultra soft Sherpa fabric and the exterior material is also Sherpa fabric.
The bottom underside the bed is made from nylon to protect the floor in case “accidents” occur.
Sherpa polyester is water resistant so it can be safely machine washed according to washing instructions.
The pet bed is one piece that does not feature a removable cover so you can wash the whole piece in the machine.
The bed does not have any hard foundation on the base so basically the pet’s body is the heaviness the unit needs to stay straight up and not folded with one higher wall over the short one. See a demonstrative video about the bed’s construction here.
