Besides the soft spot in my heart for doggies, I also have a profound love and respect for well designed and simple products. The DEN Do Good Dog Bed comes to us from Brooklyn, New York with raw materials and labor sourced ethically and domestically right here in the good Ol' US of A. The bed's design features an easily removable yet durable denim outer and a "zippered [polyfill] insert for easy washing". Upon launch, the bed's come in three colors, dark, faded and gray denim and in a variety of reward brackets. Check out the kickstarter for more information. If all goes well you'll be able to pick up or gift your favorite color on the DEN Do Good Dog Bed website linked below, or in select local brick and mortar shops.
Many rescues who are not adopted early on move through a series of shelters and rescue groups with nowhere to call home and nothing to rely on. Sadly, this leaves them with nothing but themselves and their own scent as the sole source of comfort. DEN gives them more than just a soft place to curl up, but something that is theirs, that they can count on.
As always, I believe the best ideas are inspired through users and doers trying to find a better way to get something done. The designer Christina Megill offered up her design from personal experience trying to find an affordable and well designed bed for her pup.
At the time of writing the DEN has about 30 days to go and has already fulfilled a quarter of its funding goal, so go check them out today, get a well designed dog bed at an affordable price while also helping out a pup a little less fortunate, seriously though, who's dog doesn't need a bed in every room?
