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.
|Depth cm||Carry Weight kg||
|XX-Large||150||120||18||30 to 120kg||
Great Dane, English Mastiff, St Bernard, Newfoundland, Dogue de Bordeaux, Irish Wolfhound
|XL-HD||120||90||18||30 to 100kg||Rottweiler, Golden Retriever, German Shepherd|
|X-Large||110||90||10||Up to 30kg||Golden Retriever, Greyhound, Groodle, Boxer|
|Large||90||80||10||Up to 30kg||Blue Heeler, Staffordshire, Kelpie, Border Collie|
|Medium||80||60||10||Up to 30kg||Cavoodle, Beagle, King Cavalier, Bichon Frise,|
|Small||70||50||10||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 XL-HD or 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!
