Dog Bed Size Guide

Choosing the right size dog bed is important. The dog bed you choose should support your pet in all sleeping

Choosing the right size dog bed is important. The dog bed you choose should support your pet in all sleeping positions, and leave a bit of extra space either side so they don’t go falling out. 

As we know all dogs are different If in doubt, simply go for the bigger size. Or simply drop us a message hello@raisedbyhumans.co.uk and we will do our best to help.

Measuring your pet

You will need a tape measure to get an accurate measurement. Or try a piece of string and ruler to measure the piece of string. And best to try this when your dog is relaxed or asleep as opposed to excited and jumping around everywhere!

Stand your dog in a relaxed position with all four feet on the ground, head up but not over stretched. Measure the height and length of your dog as shown in the diagram.

  • Length: measure (cm) from the tip of your dogs nose to the start of their tail 
  • Height: measure (cm) from the top of their head down to the floor.

Once you have these two measurements for length and height add 25cm to calculate a minimum recommended bed length and width required to compensate for those more stretched out sleeping positions!
