What is Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed?

The Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Dog Bed is the perfect bed to help keep your dog warm during the chilly winter months, but it's also perfect for year-round use. The heater inside the bed must be plugged into an electrical outlet to be used. Inside the bed is orthopedic foam to provide comfort and support. The soft PVC covering help prevent your dog's bed from getting wet due to rain or snow. Don't be fooled by the name - it's great for cats too.

For:

Dogs & Cats

Benefits:
  • Low wattage means bed only gets warm does not get hot
  • Available in 3 sizes
  • Ideal for use indoors and outdoors
  • Thermostat automatically heats up to your dog's normal body temperature without overheating
  • Soft PVC covering prevents the bed from absorbing water to keep dry
  • Keeps your cat warm on cold rainy days when he or she usually hangs out in the window sill
  • Tested for safety
How it Works:

The Lectro-Soft Heated Outdoor Dog Bed provides your dog with warmth in even the coldest temperatures. The thermostat regulates the temperature of the bed by heating up to your dog's normal body temperature to keep warm. This bed is also great for cats.

Cautions:

Not recommended for pets that like to chew aggressively. To protect against electrical hazards, do not immerse cord, plug, or appliance in water or other liquid. Always unplug from outlet when not in use. Do not cover your Lectro-Soft with blankets or materials. Other coverings may not allow heat to radiate properly and could cause pad failure.

How to Use
Directions:
  • Place directly on a hard, flat surface in the home or inside a doghouse or kennel. Area chosen should be a sheltered area out of direct rain or snow.
  • Pull out the air valve on the bottom side of the bed. Plug into 110-120 volt AC outlet while the air valve is still released. Allow 15 to 30 minutes for the Lectro-Soft to begin to warm and fully expand. The unit will feel slightly warm to the touch. After desired expansion, push down on the center of the bed to remove a little air. Then push the air plug in to seal the bed. This will ensure against "ballooning" when your pet is enjoying the bed. The built in thermostat will automatically regulate the temperature.
  • After initial warm-up, your Lectro-Soft will feel cooler to the touch. This is the intension for energy efficiency. When your pet lies upon the bed, it will warm to a cozy, pet pleasing temperature even in the coldest of weather.
  • Testing your Lectro-Soft bed: Place a blanket, pillow or other insulating object over part of your Lectro-Soft bed. After a few minutes, place your hand under the insulating object to experience the warmth your pet will enjoy.
Tip:

The Lectro-Soft bed may be wiped down with a damp cloth when unplugged. The unit may be plugged back in for use when thoroughly dry.

Customer Reviews
Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Other cats stole it... I bought the small 14 x 18 bed for my pet, Billy, a few weeks ago for his house downstairs. But, within the first few hours, not only did I see other cats take up residence, there were two kittens on the bed snuggled and sleeping together. Billy didn't seem to mind since he stays indoors more during winter, but I couldn't believe how quickly those kittens took to it-- too cute. Anyway, setup was as instructed, and the unit warms very nicely. I only wish the cover that came with it was a little bigger. But, the real concern I honestly have is with the exposed parts of the power cord. It was not fully steel wrapped as originally thought, but rather protected by an open/ stretched spring-like wire along its length. Because of gaps, a destructive animal can still chew the cord in between those spaces. I may need to find additional protection for this part of the unit just in case. Otherwise, I think it's a good product so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our cats love it! 3 weeks ago, I bought the medium size Lectro-soft indoor/outdoor heated bed for 2 cats that stay outside. They instantly noticed that it keeps them warm and use it constantly. Their feet & tummies are always toasty! The power cord has sturdy coiled wire around it and the included fleece cover is perfect. It was a great purchase, and a very reasonable price (especially compared to local retailers).

Does this bed come with a cover?

On other sites like Amazon.com, this bed comes with a fleece cover. Does this one?
Asked by: Robbie D
It comes with a cheap fleece cover that any movement on your dog's part makes comes off the bed. This is a dangerous bed that my dog easily pulled apart at the seams, and then chewed on the electric wires. others have reported over heating and melting wires. Overall, a cheap air mattress with electric wires running through it. Do not buy this bed.

Ouside use of Lectro-Soft Heated Bed

I am putting these beds in 2 dogs houses on my deck just outside the back dooor. Is it ok to plug the beds in the outside outlet and run cord right along the house. Of course, there will be some rainy days. But if I keep the cord right along the house will that be ok? and the outlet is covered..? Thanks, NJ
Asked by: NJ
I would not trust this bed at all. Our dog easily pulled it apart at the seams and chewed on the internal wires. Others have complained about how easily the cord is chewed, and I've seen reports of over heating and melted plastic. This is basically a cheap air mattress with electrical wires running through it.

What kind of material is covering it? PVC?

I have an aged Papillon that can be incontinent at times. Should I get the indoor or outdoor for this issue? Thanks!! Looks like an awesome product! Penny
Asked by: Pen
When the product says "indoor/outdoor" that means it can be used both inside AND outside, so you don't have to choose. It does say that it is waterproof so you should be fine. :) I hope your Papillon enjoys it!
