To perfect their design, founders Nick Lambert and Chris Dumas worked very closely with a veterinary surgeon trialling dozens of prototypes on numerous four-legged product testers.
Nick says: 'The Red Dog Company was born out of the frustration of not being able to find a comfortable, attractive bed that stood the test of time.'
It is estimated that up to 50% of dogs will be affected by arthritis at some point. With their proprietary memory foam mattress, and real wool toppers, Red Dog Company beds and mats are designed to provide optimum comfort and joint support.
The extensive use of wool, including tweed from two of Britain’s most prestigious mills, gives the beds and mats a uniquely stylish look; it is also a natural, sustainable material that has excellent thermal qualities, wicks away moisture quickly, is self-cleaning and extremely hard wearing. Made in Britain, using the finest British materials, means everything is built to last.
The ‘fire orange’ colour is the newest shade lighting up the dog beds, with bold blue next on the mood board and, in time, all colours will be bespoke to tie in with your interiors.
