Here are instructions on how to to stuff a dog bed yourself:
STEP 1 : GATHER TOGETHER A LARGE PILE OF OLD CLOTHES
Our dog bed sizes are generous so bulkier items will fill your dog bed quicker. Jumpers and blankets are ideal, although anything soft will do the trick.
Soft blankets are a good Stuff It Yourself dog bed filler:
Here is a rough guide to the volume of stuffing you will require for your Stuff It Yourself dog bed:
XS dog bed size : good for a Jack Russell or Border Terrier : the central cushion will take 4 or 5 jumpers and the bolster a couple of blankets shoved right in to create a firm dog bed to lean against.
SMALL dog bed size : good for a Dachshund or Frenchie : the small bed central cushion takes 8 or 9 jumpers and the bolster takes about 7 blankets so that it stays firm and comfy. About 8 jumpers, cardigans and sweatshirts will fill a small size central cushion.
MEDIUM size : good for Cockapoos and Corgis : a medium sized dog bed will take a stack of old jeans in the bolster and 10 or more jumpers in the central cushion.
LARGE size dog bed : good for Labradors and Boxers : the L size central cushion will take about 15 jumpers or equivilant and old sleeping bags are good for the bolster.
Blankets or old sleeping bags are a good filler for the bolster of a Large dog bed, and a large pile of jumpers and scarves will make a comfy central cushion:
XL : suitable for big dogs : we suggest large, bulky, soft items to fill a XL dog bed, the bolster will take old pillows and a big bag of old jumpers, scarves and similar would fill the central cushion.
STEP 2 : STUFF THE CENTRAL CUSHION.
Take time to push the stuffing right to the edges and tightly in.
The cushion has a central pin stitch to help your dog form an indent, as they do from instinct, as they would in the wild. Stuff around the pin stitch.
Shake and plump when full.

STEP 3 : STUFF THE BOLSTER.
Shove the first piece of stuffing right down to the opposite end of the dog bed. Pack the next pieces of stuffing in as tightly as possible. Then stuff the bolster from either side.
Stuff the dog bed bolster bit by bit keeping things as firm as possible:
STEP 4 : PUT THE STUFFED CUSHION INTO THE STUFFED BOLSTER. AND DIVE IN.
The bolster forms an oval into which the central cushion is placed:
Simply place the cushion in the bolster and making sure it sits firmly in place:
STEP 5 : TO WASH, CHOOSE A SUNNY DAY to disassemble, machine wash skins at 40 and stuffing as appropriate, air dry and reassemble.
