  • Yikes. I tried that one time. Because I took away the dog's scent, it confused him and he went potty in the house. I'd probably just throw it out and buy one that you can remove the cover.

  • You can try washing it in the wash tub with some soap. I have thrown the whole thing in the washer on delicate and it has come out okay.

  • Hmmm...
    Okay. This is what I'd do. Throw out the pee bed and get an old afghan or big blanket from a thrift store on half-price day. Use this as the dog's bed. When they pee on it just throw it in the washer with a little bleach. Bleach will neutralize the acidic urine.

  • I wash my dog beds... if there is just stuffing in it it will just get a bit fluffier and balled up alittle but ur pets wont care. make sure to use extra long wash and warm water. then i do throw it in the dryer.. mine havnt fallen apart. good luck!
