What size dog bed is right for your pet?
There are three rules of thumb often used when selecting a dog bed.
- Measure Your Pet Lying Down
- Use the Weight of the Pet
- When in doubt get the larger dog bed , not the smaller size dog bed
In general we believe that measuring your pet lying down as he is normally accustomed to lying, is the best way.
- Measure from nose or front legs, to back legs or rump; add 9 to 12.
- Pick the size of the dog bed that will best fit those measurements, remembering that round dog bed measurements are in diameter (width across the circle).
- Using weight, with some judgment, use the following guidelines
- Small Dog Beds - Pets up to 25 Pounds
- Medium Dog Beds - Pets up to 40 Pounds
- Large Dog Beds - Pets up to 85 Pounds
- Extra Large Dog Beds - Pets up to 140 Pounds
Weight is always an estimate; for best results... Always Measure Your Pet.
