Designed to fulfill your pet's natural sleeping needs

The Sleepy Fox® Snuggle Cave Bed was designed by Kristen Geldermann, a former executive at Polo Ralph Lauren, who was inspired to design her own dog bed after not being able to find a high-quality dog bed that met all her dog’s natural sleeping needs.

Kristen’s dog Kona loved to sleep under blankets, lean against pillows and scratch and fluff his sleeping pillow before laying down.  When Kristen moved to Germany, Kona was no longer allowed to sleep in the people’s bed and she was unable to find a dog bed that offered Kona all the sleeping comforts that he needed: a snuggly cover, supportive sides to lean against and a pillow he could fluff before lying down.  In addition, the bed needed to be high-quality and look great in her designer apartment. 

Out of options, Kristen applied her fifteen plus years of fashion and luxury retail experience into designing the perfect bed for Kona.  After extensive research on canine sleeping instincts, endless cave bed design prototypes and more than two years of intensive testing, the patented Snuggle Cave Bed was realized.  Finally, a dog bed that fulfills all of Kona’s sleeping instincts and looks great too.

In 2016 the original KONA CAVE® Snuggle Cave Bed was launched.  Wanting to bring the comfort and security of the Snuggle Cave Bed to all pets, the diffusion brand Sleepy Fox® was launched in 2018.  

As more and more pets benefited from the Snuggle Cave Bed, we learned that cats absolutely love it too.

Sleepy Fox®, based in Berlin, Germany, is improving the comfort and security of pets around the world.

Sleepy Fox® is eco-friendly, vegan friendly and ethically made in Europe.
