It’s been several years since I raised my last puppy with Guide Dogs of America, but I still attend monthly meetings and help out at puppy kindergarten and obedience classes.

A few months ago I was working with our area leader teaching the dogs “place” using a Carlson Elevated Portable Dog Cot.

The Carlson Portable Dog Cot was the perfect tool to teach “place”. Not only that, but I could think of hundreds (not literally…maybe a dozen) of other uses for an elevated portable dog cot.

Guess what? I recently got my hands on a large red Carlson Portable Dog Cot for review.

Carlson Portable Dog Bed – Raven often times likes to use only half her new bed and let her paws dangle

I was excited to get our hands on our very own Carlson Portable Dog Cot. As you can see Raven enjoys relaxing poolside on her new dog cot.

The Dog’s Initial Reaction

It arrived just in time to let our newest puppy, Charlie test drive it before he left for Seattle. Here are the first reactions from our 4 dogs:

Linus: Hopped up, layed down, jumped off.

Stetson: Same as Linus.

Raven: She got on the cot and curled up and only used half of the bed. Raven is a 70 pound Golden Retriever and she decided to only use half of the bed!

Charlie: Our 14 week old puppy. He was hesitant to get on at first, but that quickly changed when I added a few treats to the mix. He was up and on the portable dog cot like it was his new favorite toy. Portable Dog Cot = Treat Machine

Initial reaction from the dogs: THUMBS UP!

A Human’s Initial Reaction

My first thoughts after opening our new doggy bed:

Everything arrived on time and I like the packaging Carlson uses for both the Portable Dog Cot and the Portable Pet Pen.

Very, very easy to…
