Choosing The Ideal Bed

Your choice of bed style is influenced by your dogs favourite sleeping position. your home and the bed's location. 

Key points to consider:

Size - Big enough to stretch out and not fall off

Support - Comfortable and supportive enough not to feel the floor through the bottom

Robust - Will it stand up to several years use for 16-18 hours a day?

Waterproof - Keeps your dog dry and the room smell free

  The Foam Bed

 

Choosing a Cushion

The cushion style should reflect the use to which the bed will be put and the size and age of the dog.

incontinence Beds are designed for dogs that are temporarily, occasionally, or severely incontinent.  

If you are coping with a dog that has fecal incontinence these beds are ideal. They are totally waterproof and the seams are thermally welded so the beds are totally sealed. The fabric wipes clean and antibacterial. It will also take medical-grade disinfection. No need to wash covers several times a day.

If your dog has urinary problems you may want to add the vet bed loop to wick away fluids and help keep your dog dry. The loop is preferable to laying a piece of vet bed on top as it stays in place, does not wrinkle or present a trip hazard.

The core of the bed comprises of our Active RecoveryTM pressure relief cushion, ideal for older dogs, those who need to be recumbent postoperatively or who are undergoing crate rest.

Incontinence beds are available in standard sizes and bespoke to fit crates or specific spaces.

They are available with navy, purple or royal blue covers and grey vet bed.

Choosing a Bed - Top Tips

The key things to think about when buying a dog bed are:

1. Size - Big enough to stretch out and not fall off

2. Support - Comfortable and supportive enough not to feel the floor through the bottom

3. Robust - Will it stand up to several years use for 16-18 hours a day?

4. Waterproof - Keeps your dog dry and the room smell free

5. Price - If you want all of the above, it is unlikely you will find it in a bed costing £30-50

The Big Dog Bed Company was created with the aim of making the beds we couldn't buy - good looking, extra large beds that are firmly filled, waterproof and odour free with a long useful life.

That was over ten years ago now, and while there has certainly been an improvement in the availability of quality dog beds on the market since then, we still feel ours offer a unique combination of features.

Having bought several different products from BDBC, I can not recommend them highly enough. All products are well researched, made of robust materials, and highly effective. My dogs love them and feel secure on them as do my clients dogs.

I purchased two dog beds the same size despite the fact that I had a lab and a cocker! Why? Because you could guarnatee that the lab would always end up on the smaller bed, something to do with 'top dog'. These beds have been fantastic and I was able to match them in with my kitchen decor. They are waterproof, which proved fantastic as our cocker got sicker. All we had to do was wipe them down with a damp cloth and all the marks, stains and smells disappeared. We never had dog smell on the beds at all. Our lab left heair all over the bed and this was easily hovered or wiped off. The beds don't lose thier shape or colour and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a good quality long alsting bed for their dog, whatever their size. Dru offered great customer service and advice and knows her product well. The beds arrived when we were told and we couldn't be happier. Thank you

We now have two of these beds for our dog! The first bed is 3 years old - although to look at it you would never know as it still looks brand new. The bed hasn't sagged and the fabric hasn't faded or "bobbled". Our water loving Retriever sleeps on it every day. We haven't had to wash it yet - it just needs a quick hoover or maybe the occasional wipe with a microfibre cloth (supplied). The fabric is waterproof the "damp dog" smell does not penetrate into the bed - although we are dog lovers we didn't want a house that smelt of dogs! Our second bed has been custom made to fit the back of the car so that JJ can have a proper comfortable and supportive bed when we go on holiday too. These beds are stylish but it definitely isn't a case of style over substance - the needs and comfort of the dog are paramount. The beds are cost effective too because they are made to last. Dru is knowledgeable and practical and was able to offer us a lot of advice so that we ended up with exactly what we needed. A great service thank you.

By way of background, I really REALLY dislike the smell of dogs (love the dogs, though) and one of my dogs was half retriever so bed-chewing was his life skill. Neither dog made any impression on the BDBC bed. No smell, no holes. Four years on the bed has needed nothing more than a good vacuum when it gets a bit hairy. I have never washed it and, before anyone has hysterics, see above...these beds really live up to the hype. They are pretty much indestructible, anti-bacterial and Dru is thorough, knowledgeable and lovely to deal with. The dogs love the beds too!

The Big Dog Bed Company supplied a giant bed to us for our German Shepherd boy Ryker, aged 4. Ryker stopped being able to walk overnight when two ruptured discs in his spine compressed his spinal cord and left him paralyzed in his rear end but in lots of pain in his back. After his surgery we could not get him comfortable or find a dog bed big enough to cater for our boy. After finding their website online, I enquired about the Giant memory foam dog bed from BDBC and was pleasantly surprised to get a response from a lady called Dru, who told me that whilst the bed I was enquiring about was a great bed, she suggested that we have the active recovery bed instead with a cool comfort option as with Ryker being a long-haired German Shepherd he was bound to feel the heat, and the Active Recovery foam option would help aid his rest , therefore aiding his recovery... She also recommended the PU fabric cover, as she mentioned it would be easier to clean. She seemed to understand everything we were going through and ended up providing us with the perfect bed! Dru literally thought of everything and the bed we received incorporated different elements of the different beds that The Big Dog Bed Company make. It is perfect for our boy, from the incontinence side of things - the bed is completely waterproof with welded seams, it is antibacterial, anti fungal, doesnt hold smells and really easy to clean - to the comfortable castellated Active Recovery foam mattress - Ryker will not get off this bed! After Hydrotherapy it provides the support that he needs for his aching joints and back and hips, providing him with a long and comfortable restful sleep. The other dogs want in on the action. I know this is a long review but I want anyone that is considering buying one to know - you cannot get a better bed for your dog anywhere else. The service is impeccable, and if there is something you want to ask or to add to the bed they can nearly always accommodate. They even have a bespoke service, but if you're not sure what you are looking for there is someone who can point you in the right direction and help you purchase the perfect one. The beds are more than worth the money, excellent quality and I don't think Ryker would have made as much progress as he has without one. You will not get the same product anywhere else. Thank you Big Dog Bed Company, Ryker sends his thanks and so do we!

Starting my new business in dog daycare, I wanted to create a safe and homely environment for my four legged clients. I wanted to provide a quality over quantity service and did my research in every aspect which obviously included rest after lots of healthy excersise and play. Nothing came close to the beds supplied by the Big Dog Bed Company.or the excellent customer service given. They went the extra mile to provide the 10 beds of different specification /fabrics/ colours, within challenging timescales. Since then the beds have been well and truly road tested and with a wipe off at the end of the day, they still look and feel as good as new. The dogs love them. I'm told you pay for what you get and in this case, would endorse that. Therefore, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending these beds to anyone that wants the best for their pup.

We were unable to find a ready made bed to fit the back of our Nissan Pathfinder. We travel a lot with our 3 Hungarian Wire-haired Vizslas and wanted a comfortable bed that would fit the whole of the boot area, with a tough hard wearing cover. The boys tend to get quite warm with their wire coats and their own body head so I was delighted that The Big Dog Bed Company had a range of materials for both the bed and the cover. They were so helpful in suggesting a bed that would suit both the weight of our three boys and at the same time would not make them too warm. They kindly sent us samples of fabrics for the cover and we measured the boot. Within 2 weeks the boys luxurious Big Bed arrived. The quality of the bed is first class and it fits perfectly - and we have 3 happy boys. I would highly recommend The Big Dog Bed Company for attention to detail, quality, and an excellent service. Wish we had known about you when we had our Great Danes.

So my review is ever so slightly different from most - we actually asked Dru to make us some seat covers that we could use in the bar we have built in our back garden. We wanted them to withstand people spilling things on them standing on them and also using them to sleep on (when needed). We saw these advertised at a dog show and they were more than happy to accommodate our bespoke request. We were sent numerous sample of fabric colour as we wanted to get these just right and after we made the decision the beds where then delivered quickly and smoothly.
I cannot recommend them highly enough and my puppy also loves sleeping on these when we are using it and we had a special triangular on made that is just for her.

I am really impressed with The Big Dog Bed Company. We ordered an Active Recovery Dog Bed for our Bernese Mountain Dog which was made bespoke for a crate we had got for her. Dru was fantastic in helping us decide on which Bed to choose and it arrived in super fast time.
We were really pleased with the Bed and are about to place a second order for a cushion for the back of our car.
Would definitely recommend!

Can't praise these dog beds enough- we've had ours for our bullmastiff for over 2 years and still in as good a condition as when first arrived. Not the cheapest options- but wellworth it, I've spend so much over years on various dog beds as the dogs damage them (ie pull the stuffing out) or the beds themselves go as flat as a pancake with use. This bed lasts! The company are so responsive and happy to answer any queries as well, to help you find the right bed for your dog from the various options available. highly recommended if you're looking for a comfortable, high quality and durable dog bed for your big dog.

Happy senior dogs
Last year I’ve adopted two senior big dogs (12yrs old Pit Bull and 11yrs old Staffordshire Bull Terrier) with severe arthrosis. I bought an Active Recovery Bed and they love it! They use it both for sleeping and jumping on/off the couch (without a soft landing, it was too painful). My dogs love to bite and scratch their beds, but they didn’t manage to damage this one. The cover it’s easy to wash or to clean with a vapor steamer and/or vacuum cleaner. Customer service is really kind and helpful. I highly recommend it!
