Love to share what I experience with my pets. Upload error.
The fabric cover can be washed more frequently if needed. Tumble dry for about 20 minutes and air fluff the dog bed with a pet-safe dryer sheet to reduce static. Place items in the washing machine. There is no set time for how long you should agitate the cushion, but you should not stop until you see the dirt moving from the surface of bed.
Once it's dry, check the smell.
The pet beds that I have are from Martha Stewart and the covers are completely removable, so I do like to just take them off and toss them in the wash every once in awhile. Ideally, look for a specialty pet detergent online. Most of his funk was coming from the doghouse not being cleaned out.
If your dog bed does not have a removable cover, clean the entire bed the same way you would clean the inside cushion. Assuming it complies with the guidelines, and if it fits, put the bed in your washing machine and wash it in hot water.
This solution really helped me out! June 26, 2006 0 found this helpful.

Thanks for sharing this tip, Courtenay, I have a small dog and sometimes I forget cleaning his bed. By Jill [4 Posts, 737 Comments]. I suggest only doing this during a dry spell, as it may take the bed a day or two to dry.
Any ideas on ways to clean them? However, just like your own bed, dog beds have to be maintained. Dry the bed. Treat potential insect infestation.

Ensure that you fully close any zippers on your liner to prevent the excess accumulation of dust and keep out insects and pests that could bother your pet. This is because the treatment may not rinse thoroughly out of the filling and the residue can be irritating to your dog's skin.
If that's the case, follow the directions for the cover only. When it is no longer dripping roll it into something a large garbage bag? May 15, 2007 0 found this helpful.
