At Petsnooze we understand it’s important to size your pet’s beds and harnesses correctly. With that in mind, we have created this guide to give you an idea of the preferred sizes required for your pet.
If you have any questions regarding sizes you can always email us first at firstname.lastname@example.org please don’t forget to ask about any current offers and discounts.
Dog Bed Sizing
Dogs come in variety of shapes and sizes so it’s important to ensure you get the best fit for your pooch. We do multiple sizes in different products so please use this guide to align to your selected product.
Beds normally come in four style’s circular, square, hooded or rectangle. If your pet likes to cuddle in to a ball and walks around in circles before laying down then a circular or hooded bed may work best for them.. However if your pooch likes to sprawl out then we would recommend going for a square or rectangle bed.
Our dogs also have different laying styles we have sprawlers, curlers and leaners. Sprawlers like to stretch out in all directions and enjoy having the extra space so we would always recommend getting a larger size. Curlers like to curl up and enjoy comfort, they do this to conserve heat and instinctively protect their body from predators. Leaners prefer to place their head on something so beds with a stronger rim are a good choice for leaners.
50-60cm:- These little loungers are ideal for small dogs like Chihuahuas and Yorkshire Terriers and miniature Dachshunds.
60-70cm:- Ideal for small dogs like a Pugs, Miniature Poodles, French Bulldogs, or Bichon Frise
70-80cm:- Dogs such as Beagles, Whippets, and Corgi’s
80 - 90cm:- Collies, Labradors, Golden Retriever, and Dalmatians
100 -110cm:- German shepherd, Irish Wolf hound, and Rottweilers
Cat Bed Sizing
Cats on average tend to sleep 15-16 hours a day which is why it’s important your feline friend has a cosy place to sleep. Sizing your Cat bed is much easier than sizing dog beds.
Cats tends to be sized in two categories of standard and large. Most Cat beds tend to be within the 40-50cm size as Cat’s prefer to be in smaller places to feel safe. Larger Cats may prefer a 50-60cm beds but every cat is an individual.
Harness Sizing Guide
One of most common questions we are asked is how I fit my dogs for a harness, which is a great question.
First of all why would you want a harness? Harnesses can sometimes be preferred over collars as they can assist with dogs which may be keen pullers.
There are also many other benefits to harnesses like improved support and posture. Collars are easier to slip when taking your dog for a walk, however this is much less likely if your dog is fitted with harness.
Harness fitting relies commonly on two main measurements Chest and lower neck measurements. Another top tip is make sure you don’t wrap the tape measure too tight, it should be not too lose, either we like to call this snug.
When measuring the neck measure below where your dog normally wears a collar, this should normally be above your dog’s shoulders.
When taking the chest measurement we would recommend measuring around the widest part of the chest, so don’t always just measure behind your dog’s armpits, if you measure from the bottom of your dog’s rib cage, you're are on the right track.
There are more and more harnesses available but another key point to consider is if you purchase a front clip or a back clip harness. Front clip harness are designed to reduce pulling however can sometimes place pressure on your pets chest depending on how hard they pull. Back clip harnesses are more traditional however in some cases it can lead to increased pulling.
