Big Shrimpy opposes planned obsolescence. They believe it is an insult to the consumer and to the planet. So they focus on creating products designed to be comfortable for your pet and easy for you, the owner. That is why Big Shrimpy always uses machine washable and dryable materials, and why they make every part of the bed available for purchase separately. These qualities greatly extend the life of the dog bed and help keep it out of the landfill. This exemplifes Big Shrimpy's pride in quality, comfort and common sense. Earth Doggy is proud to offer Big Shrimpy dog beds to our customers who feel as strongly about the environment as we do.
