#Spon My Dog FINALLY wants to sleep in a bed thanks to the Brentwood Home Pet Bed! (Discount Code and Give-Away!)

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Brentwood Home, Dakota received the Brentwood Home Runyon dog bed in exchange for our honest review. All opinions are our own.

TEN…LONG…YEARS. Let me say that again, TEN…LONG…YEARS…that is how long it has taken me to find a pet bed that Dakota will use.  You name it, we tried it and Dakota would NEVER USE any pet bed that has entered our home, (other than a flat pad that was called a bed, but in my opinion was not a bona fide bed,  and even THAT was rarely used). Any and all pet beds that Dakota received were promptly given to family members and/or friends COMPLETELY UNUSED.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a California-based company,


they had seen Dakota on Instagram and asked me if I  would like to review one of their new beds. After visiting the Brentwood Home website, learning about the company and  after having viewed  their beautifully designed beds, I experienced a moment of totally forgetting  who my dog is. I jumped at the chance to review one of their beds. I had completely forgotten that MY DOG DOES NOT, NEVER HAS and most likely NEVER WOULD  sleep in a dog bed.  I was setting myself up for a disaster, or so I thought. Throwing caution to the wind I chose the  Runyon Deluxe Pet Bed , size Medium  (34-inch X 24-inch), my color of choice, Mocha.  I chose the size based on Dakota’s size (28 lbs),  and I knew the color would go perfectly with our furniture, carpet, floors…and…DAKOTA!

When  Dakota’s bed arrived, I looked at the long, narrower than I expected,  rectangular box and thought “There is a BED in there?” When I opened the box there was a beautiful bed resting covered in TONS of protective, heavy plastic wrapping! It was Dakota’s new bed that I was certain he would NEVER USE!

The color was just perfect and exactly as I hoped it would be!

With Dakota being a senior dog, I love that the gel memory foam and orthopedic support foam that this bed has, helps relieve and prevent body aches, joint pain, hip dysplasia, and arthritis.  Dakota sometimes seems a little stiff when he awakens and stretches and I am hoping this bed will help with that. The Runyon model that I have, also has bolster edges for additional support when needed. I was extra thrilled because I hoped that I would no longer watch Dakota sleep using the dining room table base as his pillow.

With all of the amazing features this bed has I wanted to sleep on it! The furniture grade upholstery cover is easy to wash and stain resistant!  Of course, because the bed was meant for Dakota, it was NOT “cat-resistant.”

Yep, there was Cody just smiling and dreaming away on Dakota’s new bed! After a few days, Dakota still hadn’t tried it and I was panicking. I went into the Sheltie group I am a member of on Facebook and asked if their Shelties used beds. The overwhelming majority said “No”, they preferred the floor. We all came to the conclusion that Shelties are so furry that they travel with their beds attached to them!  I was discouraged, but not about to give up! For the next few days I gave Dakota his treat dispenser IN THE BED. Maybe that would work! Worst case scenario would be that Cody would end up reviewing the bed, but I was still not giving up. Then, one night as I was sitting in the dark, (without a camera), I caught a glimpse of a furry creature  laying on the bed, it was Dakota! I didn’t want to discourage him from using the bed so I didn’t get my camera. I prayed this wouldn’t be the only time that he used the bed. It wasn’t…………he has used it EVERY NIGHT SINCE!

Dakota thinks it is pretty funny that I thought he wouldn’t use his new bed:

I wish I had the words to convey just how ecstatic I am when I  see Dakota FINALLY sleeping in a bed, and a bed as stylish and of the high quality that his Brentwood Pet Bed is.  Thank you Brentwood Home! After TEN YEARS Dakota is FINALLY SLEEPING IN A BED!  Dakota also said that from the moment he saw his new bed he KNEW he would love it but wanted to make me nervous!

  3. Oh, Dakota, you look evfur so comfy in that bed! You even have a built in huge long pillow to choose the side you want to lay your head on!
    I have a bolster bed and love that feature.
    I fur sure would love to win a bed like you have, the Runyon . Thanks for a chance to win that! Then maybe Dalton would not steal mine…nor Pipo:)

  4. Linda Szymoniak says:

    I have Coonhounds who are really long when they stretch out. I think I’d go with the Griffith if I’m lucky enough to win.

  5. Love this doggy. Even if I am a kitty. And LOVE the beds! Will pass this on to my friend with a doggy who loves things like this. Looks nice for me, too.
    Ciao, Dakota.
    Love, Loulou

  6. Raine says:

    We would definitely choose the Runyon as you did. Our crew likes the bolstered sides for their heads. What a gorgeous looking and comfortable bed. How wonderful Dakota is using it!

  7. Emma says:

    They sure do look and feel fantastic don’t they? We all love ours. Actually, it is my bed, but my siblings, also including the cat are always using it.

    Yay for Dakota! He looks so cozy! We love this bed so much that I’m tempted to enter the giveaway to get another one! Ha ha, of course I would not do that. 🙂
    We have other beds around, and the dogs like the couch and chair too. But I wish they would use this bed exclusively, for the benefits to their joints. I might eventually take one of the other beds away so they use this one more, plus it would free up some floor space. It’s not that often that they both use the beds at the same time.

  11. We think if Fenris would try it (he shares not sleeping in beds with Dakota) that he would like the Runyon cause it has a built in pillow. We would probably get it in charcoal. We are so glad Dakota decided to use it.

    Tuiren on the other hand has never meet a bed she didn’t like.

  17. Choppy never slept in her bed until the last year or so. I don’t know what changed, but I suspect it feels better for her than the floor as she gets older.

    I really like the Runyon. It looks super nice and comfy.

  20. It’s posts like this where WordPress needs a “Love” button! How cool is it that Dakota loves his new bed (and why not-talk about fur-bulous!). Sam would love the Griffin. Or the Runyon. He is not too hard to please. 😊

  21. Kayla Lussier says:

    These look beautiful and comfy! My dog Myla definitely needs a new bed since she outgrown her last two and they became flat and uncomfortable for her. I know she’d love the Runyon because she always like to sleep with some sort of headrest. Thanks for the awesome opportunity!

  22. OMC! Dakota, we can see why you and Cody love that bed! It looks so comfy and it’s big enough for the two of us! We’d like the one with sides like yours. Thank you for the opportunity to win one!

  23. We have read some great things about these beds! Dakota looks precious snoozing on his new bed.

    My cats would love this since one of them clawed his bed from making so many biscuits and the bottom fell out LOL.

  26. donna says:

    My cat Cassie would love either bed. She is disabled and needs a nice new comfy bed. I hope i win it for her. And i guess ill pick the Runyon bed.

  27. messymimi says:

    That looks so good i think my daughter’s SissyDog would be thrilled.

  28. Carly Williams says:

    I would pick the Runyon. My dog would love it!

  30. We have beds all over the house, even in the master bath cause Hazel likes to be wherever mom is
    All beds must have the bolster to help us be cozy. Glad Dakota likes this one!

    I like Dakota’s bed. The Runyon.

  33. Maggie from Stillness at Cherith says:

    Hi Dakota, This is my first visit to your blog. You are beautiful!
    I wish I had known about this kind of bed for my Oscar kitty. He had bad arthritis (he was almost 19) and I think this bed might have helped him feel a bit more comfortable.

    • Dakota says:

      Hi Maggie!! Thank you so much for visiting! Everyone thinks I am a girl but I am a boy BOL!! I feel so bad because Mom loved Oscar so much and she feels bad. Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  34. That looks like one incredible bed. Dakota looks like he really likes it too. Mazie would LOVE one too. Her’s are really getting worn out and I have been looking for a new one for the last of her golden years.

  35. Adtro says:

    This bed look very comfortable and so cushy too.
    Astro sleeps on a old blanket in our walk-in closet.
    We would love his to have a nice bed for Christmas.

  36. Linda Gieringer says:

    Love both beds. I bet my cats would enjoy the Runyon.

  37. Kristin G says:

    I would choose the Runyon. My dogs don’t have a bed to sleep in so I know they would LOVE this. I think my cat might beat them to it though.

  38. Jeanne Coulombe says:

    I would choose the Dakota for my Lucy but they all look like wonderful beds . My Lucy would love this for sure.

  39. Wow! That is a beautiful bed and looks very well made!

  40. Jordan says:

    We would like the same bed as Dakota!

  41. Want to know something funny? My parents get their dogs beds… And my mom winds up sitting/sleeping in them – LMFAO… Because the dogs take the couches!!

      Gigi!! lmao!! Why am I NOT surprised!!??? Love you !! xoxo

  42. Rachel says:

    Our Eddie is a senior dog too, and I think he’d prefer the Runyon with the sides. I like that the sides don’t go all the way around so Eddie could easily get in and out. Sometimes he falls out of or into bed now. I like the color, too. Would match our living room well. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

    • Dakota says:

      yes you are right, it is super easy to get in and out of for them. You are most welcome and good luck!!!

  43. Sand spring Chesapeakes says:

    What a beautiful comfy bed! Enjoy your sleeps

  44. Betty B. says:

    I would choose the Runyon like Dakota my pups would love this bed I can see them cuddling together on it!

  45. Margot C says:

    I think the Runyon is the way to go. My senior rescue Sammi likes to stretch herself out.

  46. lisa says:

    That is a wonderful endorsement. The bed is beautiful and, obviously, quite comfy! I hope Dakota has very happy pupper dreams.

  47. Ali says:

    Love the Runyon and the color I think my 4 year old Lab would love it also looks very cozy.

  48. These beds look lovely!
