@Brickette:  I just wash it like normal, but with bleach instead of detergent. All my stuff stays nice, even after muddy little pawpronts get all over the duvet! I will say duvet covers are easier to deal with than comforters. But I do white towels and sheets too. I was sick of trying to get stains out of everything the pups get into!

@whitefuzzy:  we have a gray comforter, but we do the same thing with a sheet on top. Of course, it slightly defeats the purpose of having nice bedding, but we don’t really entertain in our bedroom, so who cares?

@Brickette:  If your dog is rolling in dirt, and you aren’t ocd enough to give him a bath each night, stop letting him sleep in your bed (buy him his own bed) Done. Saved your bedding from looking grungy, and I stopped you from sleeping in gross dirt. πŸ™‚

@Brickette:  πŸ™‚ Yeah. We used to let our dogs sleep on our beds at my parents. But they just got filthier and filthier and I can’t stand the feeling of moving in my sheets and feeling silt or hair. So off the beds they went! I also would second the douvet cover option. Buy a nice comforter, inexpensive organic high thread count sheets, and a comfy douvet. That way, while you’re training your little guy to stay off the bed, you can at least regularly wash your cover if he messes up. πŸ™‚

@Brickette:  One of my favorite things ever is getting in our cuddle pile at night, I can’t imagine kicking them out of the bed for any reason other than…. when we aren’t using the bed for sleeping lol πŸ˜›  We have one black dog and one blonde, but our bedset and couches are darker because our black dog sheds SO much, it’s kind of absurd. Doesn’t matter if I followed him around with a vacuum cleaner there would still be hair everywhere. It’s even all over my bathroom which I totally don’t understand because I always keep the door shut! Several years ago we used a cream color, not white, but it still looked gross. This is our bedset now, no hair even shows up on it so that’s awesome http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/calvin-klein-bedding-madeira-comforter-and-duvet-cover-sets?ID=363754&CategoryID=7502&LinkType=#fn=BRAND%3DCalvin Klein%26sp%3D1%26spc%3D50%26ruleId%3D52%26slotId%3D20

So I vote on getting a darker bedset. But then again, I can’t imagine not sleeping with my dogs, it’s just a non option for me. Plus I don’t really like pure wihte anything, it’s so easy to get dirty, even if you wash it every week!

I have a white down feather and I just use a white cover over it and I wash it once a week when it’s winter


in summer, I have a very light (the fabric) white beadspread as well and I also just throw it in the wash whenever needed


i have a dog who hangs out and sleeps on the bed all the time. it’s fine!

We have never allowed any of our pets up on the furniture- sofa, chairs, bed etc.


When I see pics of  cats on the dining table for example, it make me cringe thinking of what I might be exposed to if I went there for dinner.

@Brickette:  My family/parents had the exact same problem (we had 3 dogs) until they just gave up and bought the dogs each their own beds. The dogs LOVE them. They get to move them around and mush thme up until they are comfortable. they don’t have to share unless they want to (or the cat got on it firs :P) and it’s their happy spot. It seems a bit similar to the “home” feeling some people try to create by crating. The dogs went to their beds to feel comfy and safe. We didn’t really have a prblem after that (the dogs only ever tried to get on beds or the couches after that when they noticed someone was sick (my mom has seizures, so this is amazing)

Give the doggy his own space. You can always get on the floor with him to cuddle. πŸ˜€

This is the set we ended up getting from Pillow Talk. As much as I wanted white, I love this look too πŸ™‚ and the horse-of-a-dog modelling for me (that’s a king size bed too :S)
