A hard floor doesn't make a very cozy bed. With help from this guide, you can upgrade your dog's sleeping arrangements to a plush surface just for him.
In 1884, a group of 12 sportsmen convened at the Philadelphia Kennel Club to form the “club of clubs”—the American Kennel Club. Their mission was to advance the study, breeding, exhibiting, running, and maintenance of purebred dogs, which the members all cherished as family companions. More than a century later, the group now recognizes 180 dog breeds, ranging from the well-known labrador retriever to the lesser-known treeing walker coonhound. All dogs are held to rigorous standards during dog shows, where they showcase skills such as obedience, agility, and timed slipper-fetching. But purebred owners don’t have to participate in shows to reap the benefits of the Club’s offerings. AKC assists potential owners by describing each breed’s temperament and grooming needs and providing resources for training and socializing puppies.
Very good value for a fairly well made dog bed. Soft, warm and comfy, this bed in the second size up from the smallest -- I don't have access to the exact sizes from the screen I'm on while writing this review, though I believe the diameter is in the range of 23 to 25 inches -- fits my 27 lb, tall (long-legged) Boston Terrier / Jack Russel mix Duncan for cozy curled-up sleeping, as well as for stretched out snoozing. The later is done with his head supported by the bolster typically, and sometimes a leg extended over the bolster's edge on the side opposite his head.
Do give the entire bed a quick going over with a lint brush when it arrives to pick up loose fibers found on the sleeping surfaces as well as on the underside.
At first appearance, it's thick and soft - the ideal pet bed. There's super thick padding on the sides of it but hardly anything on the bottom. If you purchase, really examine it when it arrives - it's like laying on the floor which defeats the purpose. Waste of money and a disappointment from AKC - who are supposed to be dog specialists.
