Guide to Dogs Sizing

Just like people, dogs come in a seemingly endless variety of shapes, sizes, heights, and weights. It's for those reasons that we offer such a wide variety of dog-bed sizes. Below, you'll find sizing specifications for our five most-popular dog-bed styles. As our bed styles vary, a medium in one style won't necessarily correlate to a medium in another. For that reason, we've included handy reference illustrations as well as a short list of breeds that are typically suited for each size.


As a general rule, we always say that our round beds are ideal for dogs who like to curl up when they sleep, while our larger beds are best for dogs who love to stretch out. But of course, there are no hard-fast rules. One of the best ways to decide is to simply watch your dog while he or she is sleeping. Believe it or not, you'll learn quite a bit that way.
