Choosing a Bed

BED SIZES – HOW TO CHOOSE A BED SIZE

The length of your dog and their weight is what you need to determine which bed size is most suitable.

1. Measure the length of your dog starting from their nose to base of their tail and add 10cm at either end.

2. Choose the length of the bed which best suits the measurements you have taken, or slightly larger. 

It is important that for optimum support and comfort that your dog is able to lay stretched out without the need to curl up to fit on the bed.

 Now choose the length x weight combination from the table below to decide which bed is most suitable.

XL-HD 120  90 15  30 to 100kg  Rottweiler, Golden Retriever, Groodle, German Shepherd 
X-Large 113  93 9 Up to 30kg Golden Retriever, Greyhound, Groodle, Boxer
Large 93  83  Up to 30kg  Blue Heeler, Cocker Spaniel, Staffordshire, Kelpie, Border Collie

Small 70  50  Up to 30kg  Boston Terrier, Chichuahua, Pug, Toy Poodle, Maltese, Jack Russell Terrier, Dachshund, Pomeranian

Small to X-Large Beds will hold up to 30kg in weight, however giant breed dogs (e.g. Great Danes, Irish Wolfhound, Newfoundland, St Bernard, Dogue de Bordeaux, English Mastiff) are best suited to an XX-Large sized bed.

Given some larger breeds are prone to hip dysplasia and other joint problems from a young age, we recommend choosing the size of the bed that will best suit your dog when he/she is at full size.

And of course, there are definitely those beautiful pets who simply like and enjoy having a bed much larger than they need!
