A quick search on Amazon for 'Dog Beds' reveals many hundreds of pages of dog beds ranging from under £15 to over £1,000.
It's a similar picture with so many homeware and general online stores as well as the traditional 'bricks and mortar' high street retailers.
Selecting the best dog bed can often be a daunting and confusing experience with much seemingly conflicting advice being offered.
So how DO you choose the best one for YOUR dog?
Here's the first step -
RULE No. 1
Choose the Seller BEFORE you Choose the Bed
In other words, find a specialist!
In our experience, the best dog beds are made by companies that -
- Just make dog beds
- Have a strong brand and reputation to protect
- Are 'Dog People'
In our case, we are a small family-owned company with a lifelong passion for dogs.
However, we have a thoroughly professional approach to developing our range of dog beds. Every single bed that we have developed has involved a long painstaking process until we felt we had got things right.
We’ve lost track of the miles covered, telephone calls made, conversations with material suppliers and craftsmen, prototype beds made and rejected in order to be satisfied with a range of products to offer … and the process goes on as we continually strive to improve our product quality and introduce new products that we think would be perfect for you and your dog.
We often tease our customers about our own hard working, underpaid team of bed testers but it's true! If our own dogs don't like a product or it doesn't meet their ridiculously high standards we don't sell it.
Choose a British Brand
All of our products are made in the UK. We pay our taxes, help keep people in employment and we are easy to contact for qualified help and advice.
Choose a company that offers a Guarantee and No Quibble Returns Policy
We want you to be delighted with your dog bed and to recommend us to all your friends. To give you peace of mind and the confidence to try our products we offer a 5 Year Guarantee and we try to be as understanding and accommodating as possible if, for whatever reason, you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase.
Choose a company with a strong environmental policy
All of our dog beds are built to last - this means less landfill. We use locally-sourced components, natural fillings and recycled packaging whenever we possibly can. We are also leading the campaign to raise awareness of the potential dangers associated with the use of foam, memory foam and fire retardant sprays used in the manufacture of many dog beds.
Once you've chosen who to buy from, choosing the best dog bed becomes so much easier...
