Umbii – Rashelle Smith
The Umbii Bed is a chew resistant dog bed that your dog cannot get off of. The patented system includes a dog bed that contains a removable platform, which connects to a tether and a specialized choke free harness. Unlike crates, the Umbii design allows you to pet, reward and interact your pet while also keeping him/her within a limited area – the bed.

About the Founder
Rashelle’s life mission is to make the world a better place. She is an avid reader. She is the proud owner of Rhet Butler, her dog that inspired her to create the Umbii Bed.
Umbii evolved from a simple idea to a full blown start-up at the Scheinfeld Center. After taking the Enterprise Launch class, I found my purpose. I acquired knowledge and great network of people who believed in me, saw my vision, pointed me in the right direction and who have been with me every step of the way.
Rashelle Smith's Story
The Umbii Bed is a chew resistant dog bed that your dog can not get off of. The patented system includes a dog bed that contains a removable platform, which connects to a tether and a specialized choke free harness. Because the dog is attached to the bed while standing on top of it, he cannot drag the bed behind him and get off.
Unlike crates, DogSpot allows you to pet, reward and interact your pet while also keeping him/her within a limited area; the bed. DogSpot does not separate your pet from his environment allowing your dog to learn how to behave properly as well as train him to feel comfortable on his bed despite what’s happening around him.
The foam is covered in a waterproof and wipeable heavy duty vinyl. The cover is made with a highly chew resistant heavy-duty vinyl that is machine washable and the platform weighs less than five pounds and is inserted into the foam.
DogSpot can be used to train puppies and prevent them from going potty indoors, alleviate bad dog habits such as jumping on guest or getting into the trash and keep a closer eye on aging or sick dogs while at the same time be used as a safe and comfortable spot for your dog to relax and sleep on.
The Umbii Bed has been endorsed by a veterinarian as well as K-9 Solutions.
