Scruffs® to Launch NEW Insect Shield® Collection this Spring

Manchester based pet-bed specialists Scruffs® have announced a new partnership with Insect Shield®, to develop a collection of pet bedding and accessories integrated with the Insect Shield® built-in protection.

Insect Shield® technology provides effective, invisible and odourless protection, and is designed to effectively protect your pet against; Mosquitoes, Fleas, Ticks & Flies. This technology used by more than 50 brands worldwide across various industries. 

Insect Shield® was born in 1996, when founder Richard Lane led a team of researchers to develop a patent-pending process of bonding a proprietary repellent to apparel. Permethrin, is a safe and effective repellent that has been EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registered since 1979. The Insect Shield® technology effectively bonds to this repellent, providing a long-lasting protection without the need to re-apply.

EPA registration was granted to Insect Shield® after seven years of comprehensive testing. During that time, researchers perfected the formulation, procedures & specialised equipment necessary to produce the repellent apparel, which is now used by more than 50 brands, in various industries, across the globe.

Scruffs® has partnered with Insect Shield® to develop a collection of pet bedding and accessories, using this built-in protection. These products feature light-weight fabrics which are designed for use in the summer months. 

When asked about the new product launch, Group Sales Director at Scruffs®, Dubby Klyne, said: "It's a fantastic opportunity for Scruffs® to bring this technology to the pet market in 2017. This is yet another example of the Scruffs® range diversifying to reflect current fashion trends and consumer needs. We are confident that our partnership with insect Shield® will be a raging success in the coming months and years."

Scruffs® is launching the technology in the following bedding and accessory styles; Mattress, Box Bed, Crate Mat, Bandana, Snood & Vest. The Insect Shield® Collection will launch with Mattresses, Box Beds & Crate Mats this May, followed by Bandannas, Snoods & Vests in June 2017. 

The Collection will be available to purchase directly from www.petslovescruffs.com and from a network of retailers around the UK & Europe. 

The Insect Shield® Collection will replace the Scruffs® Anti-Odour/Anti-Bacterial range of bedding, which was discontinued at the end of 2016.

This month, we're highlighting the follow products are our April must-haves! The Scruffs Chester Mattress, the Water-Resistant Expedition Collection, the Highland Box Beds and Super-Absorbent Noodle Dry Mat.

The Scruffs® Chester collection has been produced using a rich chenille fabric to upholster the outer of each dog bed. Luxurious, super-soft short pile plush lines the dog beds sleep area providing a snug environment for your pet. The beds are trimmed with faux suede piping and center patch with an embroidered Scruffs® logo. The mattress is made using an integral 100% recycled green fibre filling, secured in four places, this provides greater cushioning characteristics and enhanced durability during washing.

The Scruffs® Expedition Box Beds are the ideal solution for dogs that enjoy outdoor pursuits such as beach walking and muddy forest trails. These beds are produced using a heavy-duty, 600-denier fabric, providing a robust, durable outer cover. The reverse side of the fabric is coated with a 100% water resistant backing to prevent the ingress of water. The same backing is applied to the beds non-slip base. For improved support the box beds are constructed using a one-piece design. The centre cushion of the bed forms an integral section, maximising the beds strength and durability.

The box bed is made using a one-piece construction providing greater support and enhanced durability during washing. 

Scruffs® Noodle Dry Mat is extremely absorbent, easily soaking up excess moisture, enabling your dogs’ coat to dry quickly after a wet and muddy walk. Micro-fibre chenille is used to produce the dry mats' 'noodles'. The micro-fibre material is made from millions of textured, ultrafine strands woven together to achieve a surface area that is much greater than the actual size of the dry mat. This vast surface area gives the dry mat its’ super-absorbent properties, soaking up water just like a sponge, as well as improving airflow, this means drying time is greatly reduced. The same 25mm long chenille noodles also provide a comfortable surface for you dog to rest and has a non-skid surface applied to the underside of the mat making it ideal for use in cars, dog crates or around the home.
