Irish Startup Expands Unique Range of Dog Products
10th November 2023
Frances O’Reilly, Founder of startup DogDry which is located in the county of Waterford, has recently launched a unique memory foam orthopaedic travel bed for dogs.
The brand-new innovative product is designed using the same patented design as the DogDry drying robe – the result is a super-absorbent travel bed designed to cope with wet dogs and keep the surrounding area clean and dry making travel days and winter walks a lot more appealing for everyone.
The technology and design that makes this travel bed unique are that the fully washable outer cover is made with three layers of performance fabrics, a soft, plush top fabric allows moisture to pass through, a super-absorbent core locks it away and finally a waterproof lining keeps the memory foam mattress inside fresh and dry.
Speaking about the product, Frances said: “I needed a comfortable bed that our retriever Luna was happy to lie on in lots of different situations. One that came from home so had the familiar smells of home to help her settle in a new environment. And that was easy to carry from one place to the next while also carrying other luggage and holding her lead. Hence the DogDry waterproof travel bed was born.
It has some features which dog owners will appreciate including a non-slip base, its memory foam comfort levels ensure that dogs actually want to lie on it and it folds neatly to 1/3 of its size with an integrated carry handle for easy transport.”
The entrepreneur who previously held a high-flying career in innovation working with global brands such as Diageo, Kellogg and more is not stopping at that as she has also designed and launched a pair of DogDry Drying Mitts recommended for floppy-eared hounds, and those with tiny tea-cup dogs to get them dry after a walk or a bath. They are also handy to keep anywhere there is a risk of wet paws spreading a mess indoors.
Frances says that the purpose of her product range is founded on her belief that “every dog, everywhere, has the right to play outdoors. DogDry makes it easy because DogDry takes care of the mess.”
