Measuring your dog

Lets get started! First, get a flexible tape measure plus a pen and paper. Now get your pooch to stand up nicely, you may need some help holding them in position unless they are very well trained! First measure from the nose to the backend where the tail begins. Secondly measure the front legs from the shoulder to the ground and then the same for his back legs.

Now add the three measurements together and minus half the length of the front legs and hey presto you have the Sprawl Length!

Design and shape

When choosing a new bed for your pet you will need to consider your pets breed, age, any health problems like arthritis, how they like to sleep and more. Also it needs to be practical for you as well, you may want to consider things like the colour scheme and the type of material used.
