What size Snuggle Cave Bed does my dog need?

No one knows your dog better than you. Observe their sleeping habits, do they like to snuggle under the covers, into pillows? Do they like to curl up when they sleep? Do they like to stretch out?

If they like to take up lots of room when they sleep, or they twist and turn and move around whilst dreaming the night away, you might want to size up. If your dog likes to sleep curled up, they should have plenty of room in the recommended size bed for their weight. Pay attention to the cave opening height measurement, as particularly tall dogs might like a larger size.

A general sizing guideline is:

If your dog is a typical small breed dog, then the small size Snuggle Cave Bed should suit well.

If your small breed dog is a bit big (tall or long), or a medium sized dog,  then we recommend the medium size Snuggle Cave Bed which is extremely roomy. 

If your dog is large or XL, then the large size cave will fit great.
