To determine the right size of bed for your dog, measure the height to the top of the shoulders and the length from the chest bone to the base of the tail. Then add around 15 cm / 6" to these dimensions to give a guide to the best bed size for optimum comfort.
If in doubt, always choose a larger bed size.
Dogs, like humans, move around a lot in their sleep. Most dogs will adopt both nesting and sprawling positions during a prolonged sleep. It is critical that your dog’s hips and shoulders are fully supported at all times.
Round or Doughnut shaped dog beds look snug and comfy but they can severely restrict movement and provide uneven support – That’s why we only make rectangular shaped beds.
