Paws n’Silk Travel Bed Review

 Paws N Silk Feature

I know it sounds crazy but we are constantly traveling with Reya. We bring her to New Jersey with us, to the other side of Kentucky, and plan to bring her cross country out west with us at some point. When we travel, she is happy to spread across the back seat and make herself at home, even during long twelve to fifteen-hour drives. The problem we usually have is not the car ride, but once we get to the hotel. She feels uncomfortable not having a piece of home with her. While we bring toys, she misses her bed and the comfort of having her toys right on it when she’s ready to relax. Since she is a big girl now (all 80 pounds of her), we can’t exactly throw her bed in the car since it would take up most of the trunk. To make things easier, I went on a mission to find the perfect pet bed for her that was great for traveling and would make her feel better when we are on the go. When I finally found the perfect bed, I was surprised to see that it was made by Smart Silk’s pet division – Paws n’Silk!

With how much I loved their pillows, I knew I had to get this bed for Reya. To my surprise, they were happy to send this bed out to me for review, as long as Reya gave it the full puppy test! While I was a bit nervous, I knew we were up for the challenge and I can’t tell you how excited we both were when her Paws n’Silk Travel Bed arrived in the mail!

Paws n’Silk: Who Are They

Are you looking for a company that makes all natural, durable beds that are perfect for even the most spoiled of dogs? If so, you will love Paws n’Silk! While there are other companies who claim to be all natural, Paws n’Silk is the only one that that uses all natural cotton and silk to create the perfect luxury bed for our favorite furry friend. Each of their products are made from chemical-treatment free, 100% breathable cotton and long stranded grade A tussah silk, making them just as luxurious as the Smart Silk products enjoyed by humans. As well, all of their beds and apparel are made with a barrier against allergens, dust mites, and pet danger, making them perfect for even dogs with allergies! Once you have seen their high quality pet products, you will wonder why you waited so long to purchase their products for you favorite dog!


Paws n’Silk Travel Bed: Ease of Use

When I first opened the box for my Paws n’Silk Travel Bed, I thought the company must have sent me the wrong size bed. There was no way such a large bed would fit in such a small box. Once I opened the box, however, I found the neatest surprise – it came in its own paw-designed duffle bag! Everything for the bed neatly folds up into the bag, making it perfect for travel and storage. I was even more surprised with how easily this bed could be put together, taken apart, and was still looks amazing. While the bed isn’t the easiest to put in the bag after use, it is possible, making it great for traveling with just about any size dog. As you can see, this is the largest bed and it easily fits inside the duffle bag, giving you an idea of just how compact and convenient this bed could be for every dog owner. As well, once you get home from the trip, you can throw the entire bed in the wash and dry it in the dryer. While this may not sound like a huge deal, many of the beds on the market can’t be machine washed, making them something you toss unless you want a giant mess on your hands (or in your washer).

Paws n’Silk Travel Bed: Comfort

Of course, at the end of the day, only one thing matters with a dog bed – is your dog happy and comfortable on the bed? I have tried out many pet beds in the past, and Reya is very quick to get rid of anything she doesn’t feel lives up to her standards (in Petsmart, when she was about four months old, she actually kicked most of the beds aside until we found her puppy Kong bed). I considered it a great sign when Reya not only went directly to the Paws n’Silk Travel Bed, but only got up to bring more toys over to the bed to make herself at home. She absolutely LOVED this bed!  Whenever this bed is out, she wants to immediately go to it, and claim it as hers. As well, dogs can enjoy the same comforts as their humans who use Smart Silk pillows. Each of these beds are made to be all natural, chemical free, resistant to mold, resistant to odor, breathable, and temperature resistant, making it the perfect bed for any pup!

Paws n’Silk Travel Bed: Durability

Now, as a large dog owner, one of the things I always focus on is durability when it comes to beds. To me, one of the biggest deal breakers with any bed is that terrible, black no-slip coating they put on the bottom of every bed. Well, someone forgot to tell my dog it isn’t a chew toy, since this is the first thing she checks with every bed and if it’s there, she will rip it to shreds in less than 48 hours. I am happy to report, however, that the Paws n’Silk Travel Bed has the same durable fabric all over the bed and doesn’t cut corners! This bed is designed for even the roughest of dogs, making it perfect for even large, curious dogs like mine.

Paws n’Silk Travel Bed: Overview

I don’t think I can tell you just how much I love this travel bed. I have seen other travel beds before but nothing like this dog bed. I love that it easily comes apart and fits in its own compact bag for travel, making it ideal even for trips when you barely have room in the car for anything. Most importantly, however, I love that Reya adores this bed. We had this bed out in the living room for testing and she won’t leave it alone. She has been carrying all of her toys over to this bed and nuzzling against the soft sides. Based on our own experience with the Paws n’ Silk 3 Bolster Travel Bed, we are happy to give this bed an A+ rating and highly recommend it for anyone who is constantly on the go with their pup!

    This would be perfect for my son, as he has a service dog now after being injured in Afghanistan, so the Dog Travels with him wherever he goes! Thanks for this! 🙂

    I really like that it is foldable and easily packed with you. It would be so nice to use this for when we go to my parents house, she won't try to get on their furniture, thank you:)

    What a great idea for us: our cat is a world traveller and the only "me" space he has at our destinations is his carrier (or my suitcase!). It would be so nice for him to have his own cozy spot!

    If we were travelling, our dogs would love this. Thanks for the info.

    I love the fact that they are all natural. My dog Deckard always sleeps on a bed. I just recently found that more and more places allow dogs. Showboat Casino iin A.C. is a recent addition to the list. What's great is between labor day and memorialdogs are allowed on the beach.

      That is pretty awesome! We bring Reya with us everywhere! We found that most Homewood Suites will allow her which is awesome! They even keep special ‘treats’ at the desk for their canine desks.

    That is so cool! We need to get one for our dog. 🙂

  10. Cindi Decker December 3, 2013 at 2:25 pm - Reply

    I really like how you can take it with you in the little travel bag and throw it in the washer when it gets dirty.  I could really use this for my dogs as we travel back and forth from Arizona to Iowa each spring and fall.

    • Susan Bewley December 3, 2013 at 3:06 pm - Reply

      We travel back and forth between Kentucky and New Jersey so I totally feel for you! Reya just gets so sad being in a strange hotel room each time that doesn’t smell like her!

    I can see three cats wanting one of these for themselves.Cleo especially loves to curl up on a soft blanket. I believe she would love this the most!

  13. Lindsay C December 3, 2013 at 5:08 pm - Reply

    We have 2 dogs and they quite often travel with us. I love that you can pack this bed up and take it anywhere! At home, the boys have to share one bed, so I'm sure they would love to have an extra one. Thanks for the review!

    What a great travel bed! This would be so helpful with people who help driving pets to new homes. I've done that before and it was very fulfilling to help those dogs go from NY to TX !!  especially because the owner had to move that far to get away from an abusive relationship.  that one hits home for me so I am always ready to help.  This would also be good for no kill shelters.  Oh if I could buy a million I could help so many!  thank you

    This would be great for our 3 cats, we don’t have much $$, fingers crossed, thx for the great opportunity!!

    This really sounds like a good bed; I've never found one that my Pit Bull/Boxer doesn't almost immediately destroy.

    Aw! Clearly dog approved! I really like the bag, as it looks so easy to transport.Such a great way to help a pet feel at home while traveling.

    What a smart idea! I think my cat will be coming out to my parent's for Christmas and it would be nice for him to have a little piece of home to calm his nerves!

    These beds look really nice.I would love to have these for my 4 dogs,sure they would be very happy too.Great job on this review.Thank you for the info.

    I really like the style of this bed.  I have five Treeing Walker Coonhounds, so we don't tak them with us on trips very often (I mostly go out-ot-town on weekends about once every 1-2 months with my daughter), but I DO take the dogs with me in my mini-van when I have to drive long distances – especially my deaf girl, Ran, and this would actually be perfect for her to use for that.  

    • Susan Bewley December 4, 2013 at 12:29 pm - Reply

      Yes, the bed is pretty awesome! I am really hoping when we get an SUV and more room than my old little Accord that I can set this in the back for Reya.

  21. Kyla P December 4, 2013 at 9:28 pm - Reply

    Oh wow, I love that it fits in such a small bag! My Lhasa could definitely use one of these for our trips to visit family and for at home use 🙂

    So awesome to have a portable pet bed on the market that is compact and easy to travel with! That it's made with natural materials, is durable, and machine-washable are all an added bonus. Thanks for the informative review … hope to get one for my fur-baby!

    we hike a lot comes spring and pet bed is just perfect. Take it out of the cute bag and roll it out – love it!

    I love that it's so easy to travel with and that it comes in that cute little duffel bag.  It looks like a great quality bed and quality is important for pet owners.

    I'm impressed that the Paws 'n' Silk travel bed is all-natural and durable.  Best of all, it doesn't take up much storage space.

    I really like how it folds up compact …and can be a comfortimng bit of home away from home.

    This looks like the perfect solution for when our grand-puppy Mya (a German Shepherd/husky mix) comes to visit.  She is a big doggy, and needs a bed that can fit her, but which is also easy to transport.  Love it!

    My kitten has allergies (or so the vet thinks). She has no signs of any URIs. We've been switching up cat litter, but it would be best if we could switch to hypoallergenic bedding

    This would work out so well in the car on the back seat of the car for our dog to lay on too.  I think she would love this over leather lol

  37. Rhonda Best December 10, 2013 at 6:19 pm - Reply

    I love the fact that the beds are allergen free, one of our fur babies has bad allergies. Also, the portability is a big plus, it would come in very handy.

    I love that it is portable and has handles!  We just adopted a new dog and both of our girls could fit on one of these luxurious beds!

    My dog would love this bed and when we travel Teak is lost without his own place to rest and sleep.   This bed would solve that problem.

    This bed sounds like a remarkable bed.  I love that you can take it with you when you travel and it doesn't take up a lot of space. I also love that it can be machine washed and dried.  I know our Lillie Lu would just love this bed.

    I might look into getting this for my parent's dog. His bed is old and worn out, and having something easy to move would be great for them.

    That is awesome and it really helps keep the pet calm and hair from getting all over the place. I love this idea because it folds up so nicely too.

    I like the one you have in the picture that has the bolster sides. Shiloh loves beds with sides to rest his head.

    I love the looks of the bed and the fact that it's a travel bed.  My Mom's dog, Angel, would love this bed.  She will love to rest her head on the side and I really like that it's washable.

    I love how compact it is.  The fact that it folds down is really convenient for traveling.  Plus, it's plush enough that Reya…and my baby would too….enjoy it and feel pampered.
